16 exhibitors Greater New York Dental Meeting — Nov. 25, 2018 A new era of composites has arrived By Joseph S. Kim, DDS, JD, FAGD, FICOI n When it comes to composite res- torations, dentists are often asked to sacrifice speed for quality or quality for speed. This has been especially true when it comes to bulk fill com- posites, which brought the promise of larger increment sizes but required specialized equipment or were other- wise difficult to handle. Now, clinicians can have a com- posite that easily adapts to the tooth and can be used in a true bulk fill technique. REVEAL® HD Bulk is BISCO’s new bulk fill light-activated restorative composites, optimized for AD Here in New York To learn more about BISCO and its products, visit booth No. 1200. simpler and faster posterior restora- tions. REVEAL HD Bulk combines appropriate handling, depth of cure and polishability, allowing clinicians to provide patients with functional and esthetic composites while saving valuable chair time. REVEAL HD Bulk allows for layer- ing increments up to 5 mm because of its predictable depth of cure. This fea- 5 Final restoration finished and polished using Reveal HD Bulk.

While REVEAL HD Bulk is indicated for all direct and indirect restora- tions, clinicians will appreciate the significant time savings that bulk fill- ing provides, especially in posterior teeth. Like other restorative composites, it is important to maintain adequate isolation to prevent contamination of the tooth from saliva and blood. When indicated, use of a sectional matrix system with significant separating force will ensure excellent adaptation to the proximal margins, as well as minimize food impaction. interproximal to After excellent isolation has been achieved, a universal bonding agent such as ALL-BOND UNIVERSAL® is applied to all prepared surfaces, according manufacturer instructions. When possible, it is ideal to selectively etch the enamel surfaces where the composite in intended prior to application of the bonding agent, resulting in minimal long-term marginal leakage and dentinal sensitivity issues. Depending on operator preference, a flowable composite resin may be used in the deepest and least accessible areas of the preparation, including the cavosurface margins of proximal boxes. The appropriate shade of REVEAL HD Bulk can be placed in a single increment for most Class 1, 2 and 3 restorations. undercuts and that For preparations include areas that are deeper than 5 mm, it is advisable to build the restoration in appropriately sized increments. Keep in mind that due to its unique chemistry, care should be taken to avoid unnecessary exposure to light, including from ambient and overhead sources. This helps to avoid premature hardening of the material. Finally, the restoration can be finished with fine diamonds and finishing carbides, followed by finishing points. It is worth noting that because REVEAL HD Bulk’s viscosity has been tuned for bulk fill applications, it is preferable to limit occlusal carving and shaping to primary anatomy prior to curing. After curing, greater detail may be added with finishing burs, as needed. Alternatively, when darker or opaceous composite shades are required, REVEAL HD Bulk can be placed and cured short of the occlusal cavosurface margins. The final layer can be a traditional restorative composite in an ideal shade and opacity. Because REVEAL HD Bulk is universally compatible, it will serve as an excellent base under all light-activated restorative composites. restorative

30 exhibitors Greater New York Dental Meeting — Nov. 25, 2018 Align receives FDA clearance for Invisalign treatment with mandibular advancement in U.S. 5 Invisalign treatment with mandibular advancement can replace Class II elastics and functional appliances while offering significant benefits. (Graphic/ Align Technology) AD By Align Technology Staff Technology n Align recently announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has cleared Invisalign treatment with mandibular advancement for com- mercial availability in the United States. As previously announced, Invis- align treatment with mandibular advancement is the first clear aligner solution for Class II correction in growing tween and teen patients Here in New York For more information about Align Technology’s new developments, stop by booth No. 5204. that combines the benefits of the most advanced clear aligner system in the world with features for mov- ing the lower jaw forward while simultaneously aligning the teeth. This new solution for Invisalign doc- tors offers a simpler, more efficient and patient-friendly treatment option than functional appliances typically used to treat teen Class II patients, the company asserts. “Class II malocclusion is the largest opportunity in the teen segment, representing close to 45 percent of the 9 million teen case starts worldwide each year,” said Raphael Pascaud, Align Technology chief marketing officer. “We believe that treatment with mandibular offers significant benefits to both doctors and their patients and is an effective II elastics alternative and other functional appliances like twin blocks.” for Class traditional Invisalign advancement functional appliances In Class II treatments, doctors align the teeth and advance the lower jaw to improve the patient’s profile. Invisalign treatment with mandibular advancement is designed to replicate the action of commonly used for Class II correction through new “precision wings,” which hold the mandible in a forward position, while simultaneously correcting malocclusion and crowding issues. Traditionally, doctors often correct the mandible position and straighten the teeth in separate phases, resulting in a longer overall treatment time. “I think Invisalign treatment with mandibular advancement targets every deficiency we have with the old functional system,” said Dr. Sam Daher, an orthodontist in Vancouver, British Columbia. “I like the fact that we can start Invisalign treatment early — we don’t have to wait until the adult teeth are in completely. We target kids right at the beginning of the growth spurt, between the ages of 11 and 12. We’re getting excellent results with these kids. I really think it’s because kids are motivated to wear their aligners to get rid of their overbites. The results really are impeccable. From an orthodontist’s point of view, it’s heaven-sent.” As of Nov. 19, Invisalign treatment with mandibular advancement is commercially available in the U.S.

The shared passion for these core val- ues will deepen engagement, for both organizations, within the endodontic specialty, the company notes. The goal: to improve the overall patient experience — from communication with the patient and referring office, to efficient records management and clinical outcomes. “Sonendo is thrilled to partner with TDO and dedicated to work- ing with endodontists and the TDO community to advance the quality of care for patients by focusing on outcomes-based clinical research and practice efficiency,” said CEO and President Bjarne Bergheim. “We look forward to partnering with TDO, to support and continue their leader- ship position in endodontic practice management software.” “TDO has built a community of quality-centered endodontists who put patients first,” said TDO Founder Dr. Gary Carr. “We are excited about working closely with Sonendo to enhance TDO’s practice-management software.” TDO will continue to operate as a separate entity and offer the same products, services and program offer- ings as before the acquisition. Carr will continue to lead the TDO commu- nity, and Luiz Motta, general manager of TDO, will continue to lead day-to- day operations.
