You can’t put a price on having peace of mind.” You can see it all here in New York in booth No. 4627.
18 exhibitors Greater New York Dental Meeting — Nov. 27, 2018 Planmeca Emerald: Next-generation scanner By Planmeca USA Staff n The Planmeca Emerald is a light- weight, ergonomically designed scan- ner that quickly captures intraoral color images in real-time, accord- ing to Planmeca USA, the company behind the product. Its compact, slim design provides a comfortable feel, the company asserts. Dual-function controls allow the clinician single-handed opera- tion of the software. “Smart” heated scanner tips are autoclavable and eliminate fogging, enabling continu- ous scanning and use tracking. One of the most impressive aspects of the Planmeca Emerald, according to the company, is its speed and ease of use. Every dental professional has the ability to capture accurate digi- tal impressions ranging from single- tooth to full arch within minutes, cap- turing individual images for patient or laboratory communication. The scanner uses a multi-color laser- based system for color reproduction. The Planmeca Emerald is built on an open system platform, creating AD Here in New York Visit Planmeca USA at booth No. 5425.

The “Plug N’ Play” capability with USB-3 con- nection allows clinicians within the office to use the Planmeca Emerald without concerns about Wi-Fi connec- tions. The portability enables sharing between operatories and multiple PCs, and because it includes Plan- meca Romexis, a server-based solu- tion is available. A replaceable cord reduces the need to replace the Emerald scanner because of wear and tear of the elec- trical cord, thereby extending the life of the scanner. As always, customers can take 5 Mark Ebersold of Planmeca here in New York (booth No. 5425).

The Planmeca Emerald gives cli- nicians the freedom of practicing dentistry the way that best suits their practice, the company asserts. Clinicians that prefer to only scan can send files to third parties with- out additional click or subscription fees. If clinicians choose to offer same-day dentistry to patients, they can add a mill.

Currently, dental assistants and other clinicians must use one hand to hold the tongue with a mirror and the other hand to hold the HVE evacuator tip. In contrast, LinguaGuard allows the clinician to use a single apparatus held by one hand without compromis- ing the levels of protection, stability and suction. This frees the other hand to reduce chair-side working time and improve the overall quality of care. LinguaGuard’s design ensures a strong fit and reliable support, and it slides easily onto the HVE tip. Impor- tantly, it also allows for safe, comfort- able retraction without the risk of “tissue suck,” Kulzer asserts. “Our introduction of Ivory Lingua- Guard continues Kulzer’s proud tradi- tion of enhancing productivity and patient comfort,” said Lesley Melvin, Kulzer’s director of marketing and product management. time demands on both clinicians and their patients are greater than ever, which is why we are so passionate about helping our valued customers improve their efficiency and the patient experi- ence.” “The LinguaGuard is the second recent productivity-enhancing product in Kulzer’s Ivory line.

28 exhibitors Greater New York Dental Meeting — Nov. 27, 2018 ‘Equipment down!’ Why we #RelyOnHenrySchein 5 Dr. Karen Roschella and Dr. Ann Zinger share their personal story through the #RelyOn HenrySchein campaign. (Photo/ Provided by Henry Schein) AD By Henry Schein Staff n It was a Tuesday morning, and Dr. Karen Roschella and Dr. Ann Zinger found themselves in a panic. Just three hours into their fully booked, 12-hour workday, two of their X-ray heads stopped working. Ordering and installing new X-ray heads can take upwards of three weeks, which would significantly disrupt the practice and create a logistical nightmare of rearranging patient schedules. Thankfully, they called Henry Schein, and an equipment service technician immediately altered his schedule so he could help. He was able to put their minds at ease and temporarily fix the X-ray heads, which remained operational until new units arrived. Roschella and Zinger experienced a dentist’s nightmare: multiple pieces of equipment going down with a full day of patients ahead. They quickly learned the value of timely technical support to their practice in Marriotts- ville, Md. Roschella and Zinger continue to rely on Henry Schein as a valued part- ner, using the company’s full-service model to improve operational success and clinical outcomes. “If we didn’t have Henry Schein to call, I don’t even know who you would call. It’s a dental X- ray unit, there is only a handful of people who are going to know how to address that situation, and get it done quickly. You have to have someone you trust, who under- stands the severity of your situation,” Zinger said. “As a clinician I’d rather spend my time with my patients providing clini- cal care for them, not dealing with the business aspects of dentistry. That’s why we rely on Henry Schein to take care of that for us,” Roschella said. #RelyOnHenrySchein is Henry Schein’s new brand campaign that puts the spotlight on Henry Schein cus- tomers. Through a collection of stories, #RelyOnHenrySchein provides health care professionals with a platform to share their unique experiences in managing productive and efficient practices. The campaign initially featured three dental practices and their unique stories. More customer success stories are under production.

According to Bisco, Pro-V C&B was developed using a multifunctional acrylic composite, creating a tempo- rary restoration that is a superb mix- ture of “strength, durability, flexibility and esthetics that emulates a natural tooth.” The self-curing material is avail- able in four essential shades, polishes AD Here in New York Visit Bisco Dental Products in booth No. 1200.

According to the company, addi- tional features and benefits of Pro-V C&B include: fast setting within four minutes; fast finishing with quick removal from impression and natural luster (saving both time and money); simple application that flows ideally into the impression with great control; and strength that is suitable for long-term temporary restorations. In addition, the material offers tooth-like translucency, opalescence and natural fluorescence and is suit- able for demanding anterior tempo- raries, according to the company. 5 Don Rice of Bisco says the new Pro-V C&B temporary crown and bridge material is strong and durable and offers excellent esthetics.
