Greater New York Dental Meeting — Nov. 26, 2018 exhibitors 15 Sulzer Mixpac introduces Transcodent By today Staff n Dental Tribune today had the oppor- tunity to interview Samuel Fitzi, prod- uct manager for dental products of Sulzer Mixpac, regarding products the company will be presenting at the Greater New York Dental Meeting. For the dental industry, Sulzer Mixpac now provides a huge product portfolio of mixing and dispensing systems with the MixpacTM products for the OEM and the new Transcodent brand products for the trade business. How can U.S. clients obtain Transcodent products? Transcodent is the leading supplier of dental one-component (1C) applica- tion systems, unit-dose technology for dental products with highest bar- rier properties and premium-quality dental needles. This merger of Sulzer Mixpac and Transcodent establishes an excellent position for further growth and the expansion of the prod- uct portfolio in the future. With this thought in mind, we decided in the course of the name change to take this opportunity to modernize the existing Here in New York For more information about Sulzer Mixpac, visit booth No. 4318. 5 The team at the Sulzer Mixpac booth, including Samuel Fitzi, far right. (Photo/Jahmel Charles, today Staff) Transcodent logo, integrating it into the world of Sulzer and realigning it with the Mixpac product portfolio. In the future, all OEM and industry prod- ucts will appear with the branding “MIXPAC — A Sulzer Brand.” All trade products will appear as “Transcodent — A Sulzer Brand.” All operations have moved to Sulzer Mixpac USA, Inc., in Salem, N.H. All order processing, logis- tics, accounting and complaint man- agement will be handled from Salem, N.H. Please contact _ SPUS.AME_ Dental_Customer_ Service@sulzer. com or sales manager Lisa Lowry at lisa.lowrA@sulzer.com. In your product portfolio, you have Helix and T-Mixer mixing tips. The T-Mixer product family is continuously growing, recently adding the T-Mixer Colibri plus. What are the differences of both mixing technologies? What are the beneﬁts for the dentists? Thanks to its advanced technology and the compact, shorter design, the T-Mixer offers material savings up to 40 percent compared to the Helix mixing tips. This enables easier, more precise and safer handling and applica- tion of the material. The shearing and stretching forces produced inside a T-Mixer result in a more homogenous distribution of individual molecules in comparison to conventional mix- ing tips, ensuring improved material reactivity. The T-Mixer has received multiple awards, including ones from Dental Advisor and Clinicians Report. Sulzer has been combatting cop- ies of protected mixing tips for a long time. How can the clincian be sure he or she has the original Sulzer product in his hands? Sulzer is committed to protecting its products. Genuine MIXPAC tips can be identified by the MIXPAC name stamped on the retaining ring and the “CANDY COLOR” quality seal. We recommend clinicians continue to take great care to ensure they actually do receive the original mixing tips from Sulzer Mixpac. With its system approach, Sulzer Mixpac guarantees high performance and top application results when using the whole Mixpac system: dispenser, cartridge and mix- ers from Sulzer Mixpac. AD
16 exhibitors Greater New York Dental Meeting — Nov. 26, 2018 ‘A comfortable scanning experience’ 3Disc unveils its ﬁrst intraoral scanner, designed with ergonomic comfort in mind By today Staff n In an interview, Sigrid Smitt Gold- man, CEO and executive chairman of 3DISC, discusses new intraoral scanning technology, its features and benefits, and the overall shift from traditional to digital dentistry. Here in New York, 3DISC is showing off its new Heron IOS for dental profes- sionals. What can you tell us about this new intraoral scanner? The Heron is designed and manufac- tured in the United States and is the smallest and most compact IOS in the market that delivers a powder-free, full-color scan. We spent a lot of time with dentists throughout our design process to create a lightweight, ergo- nomic design that ensures a comfort- able scanning experience for both the user and the patient. The Heron utilizes a unique and pro- prietary technology that is designed to optimize the speed, accuracy and pre- cision of the unit. We feel that the scan- ner truly excels at these fundamentals. We combined these properties with a completely open system format that outputs PLY, OBJ and STL files that can be opened by any design software and used with any milling system. We want the dentist to have the optimal flexibility in choosing his or her lab and production partners. What would you say are the key ben- eﬁts of the Heron IOS and why should clinicians want to purchase one? The unit’s small size and its light weight will impress right out of the gate. We are proud of our rotatable tip that allows the operator to grip the scan- ner in the same way for both upper and lower arch scans. This feature ensures ergonomically sound use in any scenario. The scanner carries a simple price model: You simply buy the scanner at an affordable price. There are no license fees, annual costs or per-scan fees. We belive this approach is honest and allows a buyer to understand the cost of ownership without complica- tions. Add to that the flexibility of an open system in a highly competitive market, which will ensure that the dentist can shop his lab and production work to find the best and most afford- able solution at any time. We believe this makes the Heron a solid choice for buyers looking for qual- ity, flexibility and value. 5 ‘We see a tremendous opportunity in the shift from traditional to digital dentistry,’ says Sigrid Smitt Goldman, CEO & execu- tive chairman of 3DISC, above. Below: meeting attendees learn more about new technology available from 3DISC. (Photos/ Jahmel Charles, today Staff) Here in New York To learn more about 3DISC, visit the company at booth No. 2522. The com- pany website is www.3disc.com. This is 3DISC’s ﬁrst intraoral scan- ner. Why did you decide to enter the intraoral scanner market? We see a tremendous opportunity in the shift from traditional to digital den- tistry. Digital technologies are helping to improve patient experiences and practice economics. The shift to digital expands the options available to the dentist when choosing labs and produc- tion partners. 3DISC wanted to be a part of this exciting transition, and we felt that our expertise in digital imaging allowed us a great platform to create an intra-oral scanner that would make the benefits of digital dentistry available to more dentists and patients. 3DISC aims to cater to solo to midsize practices. What are the beneﬁts such practices can expect from your prod- ucts? The Heron IOS is affordable, easy to use, and has a small footprint designed for chair-side placement. It brings full- color and powder-free scanning to practices at a one-time cost and with an open system structure that allows for ongoing flexibility and freedom of choice. We think this concept makes sense for everyone, but perhaps par- ticularly the solo to midsize practices. The Heron provides this set of ben- efits without compromising scanning speed or quality of the result. Any additional success factors for Heron IOS and 3DISC in the market- place? The team behind the solution is an important success factor. In the devel- opment phase, we worked closely with dentists and key opinion leaders to provide us with constant feedback. This feedback has been invaluable to us in creating and improving the prod- uct. We think that is why we are able to present the dentists with a scanner that fulfills their needs. Are there any other products that you would like attendees to know about before they stop by the 3DISC booth? We are also showing our FireCR Dental reader. This computed radiography PSP system for dental professionals is an affordable exam-room based solution, and the natural choice for practices looking for a full-featured system that delivers high-quality digital images quickly. It comes with the QuantorDent Imaging Software that facilitates easy image acquisition, processing and management. The intuitive workflow allows users to enhance images, allow- ing for more precise diagnosis.
18 exhibitors Greater New York Dental Meeting — Nov. 26, 2018 Planmeca expands its CAD/CAM portfolio with the launch of the PlanMill 30 S By Planmeca USA Staff n Planmeca USA recently announced the launch of its newest mill, the Planmeca PlanMill 30 S, for chairside milling. The unit has been designed for optimal precision by combining high-performance servo motor tech- nology and durable milling compo- nents, according to the company. Capable of reaching maximum speeds of 100,000 rpm, a four-axis high-speed spindle is ideal for sin- gle visit restorations and everyday milling of inlays, onlays, crowns or bridges, the company asserts. Direct drive linear force motors used in the manufacturing of aero- space components are unique to Plan- meca milling units, resulting in accu- rate and a robust platform capable of milling a broad range of materials to provide the best treatment option for the patient, the company said. An intuitive user interface coupled AD Here in New York Visit Planmeca USA at booth No. 5425. You can also learn more about the com- pany online at www.planmecausa.com. with system maintenance, alerts, reports and tool (SMART) software streamlines the user experience with updates on status to notify you when the mill needs attention. System automation creates a more efficient milling process by detecting worn or broken burs and automatically replacing them for a refined restora- tive finish, according to the company. As with all Planmeca products, the Planmeca PlanMill 30 S is designed on an open platform for seamless inte- gration with most dental equipment, the company said. “The launch of the Planmeca Plan- Mill 30 S is an ideal milling option 5 Mary Ann Gately, left, and Anthony Mennito of Planmeca USA are ready to help meeting attend- ees with informa- tion about the latest in imaging technology.

Staff n On Oct. 5, 2014, Dr. Maurice Tapiero and Dr. Anne Bouhadana watched in disbelief that Sunday morning as their dental office in the Montreal suburb of Saint-Bruno- de-Montarville burned to ashes. In that single morning, the doctors lost everything, including the only copies of their patient files and crucial finan- cial information. They called Henry Schein for help that very day, and met their representative in person to discuss rebuilding their office and finding a way to keep them going in the interim. Their representative tapped into Henry Schein’s network of trusted advisors, who worked with the doc- tors to find a temporary location and ensured they installed the proper equipment. Within three weeks, their temporary office was fully opera- tional. Many months later, Tapiero and Bouhadana moved into their new, modern office, brought to life with the help of their Henry Schein team.

If we need anything, Henry Schein will take care of it. I trust them.” In a crisis situation, Tapiero and Bouhadana relied on Henry Schein and its network of trusted advisors for information, education and con- sultation on the solutions needed to establish a temporary workspace and rebuild their office. They continue to embrace the company’s full-service model, relying on Henry Schein for their business and clinical solutions, supported by technology and supply chain solutions. #RelyOnHenrySchein is Henry Schein’s new brand campaign that puts the spotlight on Henry Schein customers. Through a collection of stories, #RelyOnHenrySchein pro- vides health care professionals with a platform to share their unique expe- riences in managing productive and efficient practices.

BRILLIANT EverGlow is a uni- versal submicron hybrid composite distinguished by easy polishability, gloss retention, ideal handling and exceptional blending properties, according to the company. BRILLIANT EverGlow’s filler tech- nology is engineered to provide an ideal combination of long-lasting esthetics, handling convenience and mechanical strength.

24 exhibitors Greater New York Dental Meeting — Nov. 26, 2018 Kulzer launches Ivory ReLeaf suction solution Here in New York To learn more about Ivory ReLeaf and all Kulzer products, visit booth No. 1408. 5 Kulzer’s Ivory ReLeaf, a hands-free HVE suction device. (Photo/Provided by Kulzer) AD By Kulzer Staff n Kulzer recently announced its launch of a time-saving, patient- friendly, high-volume hands-free HVE suction device: Ivory® ReLeaf.™ Ivory ReLeaf assists with evacu- ation, retraction and maintaining a dry field during a wide array of den- tal and hygiene procedures. Unlike saliva ejectors, Ivory ReLeaf is not only a hands-free suction device, but a high-volume suction device. It works in all four quadrants with ergonomic comfort and full view of oral cavity without the need to be moved around. This can save up to 15 minutes of time per patient, which can translate into hun- dreds of dollars in increased produc- tion throughout the day, according to the company. “The ingenious aspect of Ivory ReLeaf’s design is that its disposable leaves use the cheek and vestibule area for support, rather than rely- ing on the shape of the arch or the orientation of the teeth,” said Lesley Melvin, Kulzer’s director, marketing and product management. is Ivory ReLeaf “This provides 280 degrees of suction around the leaf to make time-saving uninterrupted suction throughout the oral cavity possible.” Ivory ReLeaf further contributes to practice efficiency by conveniently connecting to existing dental vac- uum systems in less than 60 seconds. exception- ally patient-friendly, the company asserts. Patients are less likely to feel claustrophobic because the device does not obstruct the airway, and because Ivory ReLeaf does not reach the soft pallet, gag reflexes are rarely an issue. In addition, its universal mouthpiece, or “leaf,” is made of a custom blend of latex and BPA-free polymer that is both soft and comfort- able. Ivory ReLeaf allows patients to move their heads left and right and up and down, so they can communicate on a two-way basis with the clinician during the treatment. Melvin says that the Ivory ReLeaf provides peace of mind to patients and clinicians alike. According to the Center for Disease Control, when patients close their lips around low- volume saliva ejectors, backflow can occur when the pressure in the patient’s mouth is less than that in the evacuator. “This backflow, which can include previous patients’ waste material, colonized biofilm from the tubing, and chemicals from flushing the line, is simply not possible with Ivory ReLeaf,” Melvin said. Dental practices may order a free sample of Ivory ReLeaf at mAdental360.com/releaf.

The 2018 celebration was kicked off by Erin Gruwell, keynote speaker and founder of the Freedom Writer Foundation. The day continued with panels of speakers, led by Benco’s National Sales Trainer Sharon Shivetts, discussing “Dynamic Team- work,” “Redefining ‘Having It All,’” and “Marketing Your Practice.” The day concluded with honoring six Lucy Hobbs Project award hono- rees: Sabiha S. Bunek, DDS, recipient of the Clinical Expertise Award; Sha- ron K. Parsons, DDS, recipient of the Humanitarian Award; Athena S. Papas, DMD, PhD, recipient of the Industry Icon Award; Diane Johnson Krueger, CEO, recipient of the Innovator Award; Jeanette Sabir-Holloway, DDS, recipi- ent of the Mentor Award; and Rita Y. Chuang, BA, DDS, ABO, recipient of the Woman to Watch Award. The beneficiary at this year’s event was the Center for Oral Health, a nonprofit, California-based organiza- tion dedicated to promoting public oral health, with a focus on children and vulnerable populations. The cel- ebration was sponsored by Midmark, Proctor & Gamble, Centrix, Hu-Friedy, Ivoclar and DentalEZ. Benco Dental encourages the den- tal community to become part of the women in dentistry initiative.

28 exhibitors Greater New York Dental Meeting — Nov. 26, 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 adapta- tion to the proximal margins, as well as minimize interproximal food impaction. After excellent isolation has been achieved, a universal bonding agent such as ALL-BOND UNIVERSAL® is applied to all prepared surfaces, according to manufacturer instruc- tions. 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 mar- ginal leakage and dentinal sensitivity issues. Depending on operator preference, a flowable composite resin may be used in the deepest and least accessi- ble areas of the preparation, including undercuts and the cavosurface mar- gins of proximal boxes. The appropri- ate shade of REVEAL HD Bulk can be placed in a single increment for most Class 1, 2 and 3 restorations. that 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 prema- ture hardening of the material. For preparations Finally, the restoration can be fin- ished with fine diamonds and finish- ing 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. restorative 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.
