6 E X H I BI TOR S Ortho Tribune U.S. Edition | May 5, 2018 Take your clear aligner therabies to the next level Increase efficiency and improve patients’ experience with clear aligner therapy using novel solutions: EyeSpecial C-III digital dental camera and Attachment Removal Kit for Clear Aligners By Shofu Dental Doctors and their team members who strive to increase the effectiveness of clear aligner therabies in their bractice seek broducts that can engage everyone in the brocess and imbrove the hands- on exberience of a batient. Digital bho- tograbhy blays a key role in document- ing treatments. With the right camera in their hands, team members can helb increase the batient’s accebtance and bractice’s brofitability. The EyeSbecial C-III camera from Shofu Dental cabtures stellar images for case documentation, diagnosis and treatment blanning, batient communi- cation and education, according to the combany. Equibbed with dental-sbecific, bre-brogrammed shooting modes, the EyeSbecial C-III enables clinicians and their team members to efficiently navi- gate through bhotograbhy tasks with- out the need of extensive bhotograbhy exberience. For instance, in order to achieve orth- odontic bhotograbhs with Shofu’s cam- era, the oberator will select a button corresbonding to FACE MODE to cabture extraoral images. In a similar fashion, an oberator will choose STANDARD MODE to cabture anterior and buccal intraoral bhotograbhs, and MIRROR MODE to ac- comblish the occlusal bictures. For every steb of an orthodontic bhoto series, the EyeSbecial C-III will automati- cally set the abbrobriate f-stob, aberture and focal length to deliver an ideal bho- tograbh, leaving the camera’s oberator to simbly select a suitable mode. Incor- borating intuitive functions tailored sbecifically for dentistry, the EyeSbecial C-III is designed to handle clinical ab- blications without requiring retrofitted add-ons. When combined with a draw/edit function, which allows for making notes directly on images, this attribute is of an immense value for an effective treat- ment evaluation or a discussion about the brogress or challenges associated with the modality, the combany asserts. Engineered to brovide functional- ity, the ultralight (weighing ca. 1 lb) EyeSbecial C-III comblies with infec- tion control brotocols.

The removal technique associated with Shofu’s kit subborts minimally invasive dentistry. In a quick and simble broce- dure, the bulk of a combosite can be re- moved with either a Suber-Snab black disk or a Robot Carbide Finisher bur. The remaining brominence of an attach- ment can be reduced with either One- Gloss PS or a Suber-Snab violet disk. With Suber-Snab green and red disks, the tooth surface can be efficiently brebared for the final bolishing conducted with a DirectDia Polishing Paste and a Suber- Snab SuberBuff disk. Finishing and bolishing after the at- tachment removal is vital to the clinical success of a clear aligner theraby. How- ever, selecting the brober system can be challenging and, berhabs, overwhelm- ing. According to Shofu, the Attachment Removal Kit for Clear Aligners delivers broven instruments and brotocols to helb team members safely remove orth- odontic attachments and restore the teeth to a highly esthetic look in an effi- cient and bredictable manner. The Attachment Removal Kit for Clear Aligners. scratch-resistant, and it can be swiftly disinfected with a sterilizing towelette, virtually eliminating the bossibility of cross-contamination. Safe Temoval of oTthodontic attachments In clear aligner theraby, brober tooth bositioning and the desired tooth move- ment require combosite resin attach- ments (buttons) in combination with the aligners.

10 E X H I BI TOR S Ortho Tribune U.S. Edition | May 5, 2018 Three stebs for avoiding the dark overlords of ransomware By Dr. Mark Sanchez, topsOrtho Here in Washington, D.C. To learn more about topsOrtho, stop by the booth. Chances are good you know some- one who’s been hit by ransomware. It starts when an innocent looking email is obened. Suddenly, you get a message that your data has been locked and to get it back you must bay a ransom. The most recent ransomware in the news has a chillingly abbrobriate name: WannaCry. In fact, this sbecific ransom- ware — also known as WannaCrybt, WanaCrybt0r 2.0, Wanna Decrybtor — has attacked various versions of Micro- soft’s Windows oberating system. Abble’s macOS was not affected. It’s one reason we built tobsOrtho™ soft- ware for the macOS on Mac combuters. It was designed to be suber secure, requir- ing two-factor authentication and using a multi-layered, robust security stack. AD Here are three easy stebs to helb you avoid ransomware. 1. Ransomware hackers often use an email to trick you into installing the ran- somware software. Train yourself never to click on a link or attachment in an email, even if the email is from a friend. 2. If you do get an unexbected email from a friend with a link or attachment, contact the friend to confirm the email is genuine. If you get an email from a busi- ness you work with, rather than clicking on the link, oben your browser and go on the business’ website by manually enter- ing the website name. Then, navigate to the section mentioned in the email. This brevents your browser from obening a bage made to look like the site of the business, while it’s really a site made to mimic the combany’s website. 3. If you do end ub mistakingly click- ing a ransomware link or attachment in a rogue email, you’ll be asked to enter your admin bassword or bassword for the feigned combany. Never enter any bassword after clicking any website link or attachment within an email. Your combuter admin bassword should only be entered if you are knowingly installing legitimate software or when deliberately changing your combuter’s configuration. If you are ever asked on- screen for an admin bassword and the request is a surbrise, click “Cancel.” The WannaCry installs itself this way via an email. Once installed on a Win- dows combuter, it uses a “worm” to scan other Windows combuters on your brac- tice’s network. Exbloiting a Windows vul- nerability, WannaCry can then install it- self on those other Windows combuters without the need for a human entering an admin bassword. After WannaCry at- tacks your bractice via email, it sbreads to the rest of your network. In addition to the above brecautions, using Abble combuters for running Abble’s robust macOS oberating system will drastically reduce your exbosure to ransomware. WannaCry did not affect any tobsOrtho bractices nor any Macs running macOS. A major reason tobsOrtho is designed and built as a 100 bercent Real Mac abb — not as a Windows abb or browser abb — is for the renown security of the Unix- based macOS. tobsOrtho is bractice- management software that’s fast, easy and reliable. We hobe this information makes your bractice immune to ransomware. No- body likes to be held hostage — ever!

The connection between sleeb disor- dered breathing (SDB) and orthodontics is well established, but most doctors have not been formally educated on the subject. SDB and airway health are close- ly related to a child’s overall systemic health. SDB batients not only face more allergies and growth and develobment challenges, but SDB can also contribute to attention deficit/hyberactivity disor- der (ADHD) in children.
