The new Star®ETorque™ advances the electric handpiece with a one- touch system that allows the practi- tioner to move seamlessly between high- and low-speed applications, according to the company. From car- ies removal to root canal treatment, StarETorque covers a range of opera- tory needs with a lightweight tool that combines power, performance and flexibility. The other innovative product showcased at the DentalEZ booth, No. 416, is the InOffice™ workstation developed for the dental practice. This new workstation can be cus- tomized for today’s needs, with the flexibility to add new features as the needs of the practice change. “We’re excited to debut these new products at CDA Anaheim,” said Bob Senesac, DentalEZ’s senior director of marketing. “As high-performance partners of the dental industry, we are constantly striving to develop new products that provide solutions to everyday challenges in the deliv- ery of oral health care. We’re focused on simplification and efficiency, value-based products and outstand- ing customer service and support.” StarETorque electric system The StarETorque uses a small, light- weight, brushless motor for less noise and vibration to benefit both patient and dentist. The motor is autoclav- able, with six customizable operative modes for both endodontic and pre- paratory procedures, which provide the ultimate in flexibility, according to the company. “This compact, intuitive system gives dental professionals the free- dom to work seamlessly through a variety of procedures,” said Eric Reno, senior product line manager of handpieces. “It’s truly customizable, 5 The StarETorque customizable electric s/stem.

12 exhibitors CDA Presents — May 17, 2018 Solvay Dental 360 shows off its paradigm-shifting polymer Here in Anaheim, company offers dentists special pricing for premium alternative to metal partials By Solvay Dental 360 Staff n Solvay Dental 360™ is bringing Ultaire™ AKP, a high-performance polymer for removable partial den- ture (RPD) frames, here to the CDA Presents the Art and Science of Den- tistry in Anaheim. Ultaire AKP was specifically designed to fill the gap between metal RPDs, which can be too rigid and stiff, and other polymer frame materials that can be too flexible. Here at the show, Solvay Dental 360 will have a special offer for den- tists who visit its booth: Two Ultaire AKP partials for the price of one. To recieve the offer, dentists can stop by booth No. 590. “Dentists and patients alike are demanding better materials for RPDs, and Ultaire AKP delivers in a way that metal and other polymer options sim- ply cannot,” says Shawn Shorrock, global director, Solvay Dental 360. “We saw an unmet need to replace metal in dental materials, similar to other markets we serve such as orthopedic and cardiovascular, and we worked closely with dentists to ensure Ultaire AKP best serves their needs and those of their patients.” As patients become more aware of the effects of metal — the potential allergies, toxicity and taste — they are also becoming more proactive, ask- ing for partial dentures that feel natu- ral, comfortable and are esthetically appealing. Ultaire AKP is an innova- tive aryl ketone polymer that pro- vides a biocompatible, lightweight, metal-free, non-irritating and more esthetically pleasing alternative to traditional metal RPD frames, accord- ing to the company. Ultaire AKP is a rigid material — not flexible — suitable as a metal replacement and different than the other non-metal materials currently on the market, the company asserts. It is both strong enough and tough enough to be tooth-supported and help reduce bone loss, yet it is flexible enough to engage undercuts more deeply. Making multiple adjustments to a milled RPD can be time-consuming and frustrating for patients and den- tists alike. Furthermore, months or even years of adjustments tend to wear down once-healthy teeth. Not 5 At top, the Ultaire AKP. 3 At left, the traditional metal partial dentures compared to the Ultaire AKP. (Photos/Provided b/ Solva/ Dental 360) only does Ultaire AKP provide an esthetically pleasing, biocompatible alternative to metal, once an RPD made out of Ultaire AKP is designed and fitted, adjustments should not be necessary — saving the dentist and patient valuable time. “Ultaire AKP is a paradigm- shifting polymer — it really hits the sweet spot between metal and the flexible systems on the market today,” says Ryan Murphy, PhD, technology manager and polymer scientist at Solvay Dental 360. Here in Anaheim To learn more about Ultaire AKP, stop by the Solvay Dental 360 booth, No. 590. “It is a unique proprietary chemis- try developed specifically for RPDs. There is no direct one-to-one compari- son to any of the metal or polymer sys- tems that are currently on the market for RPDs.” Solvay Dental 360 is a part of the global company Solvay, a leader in high-performance polymers used in the health-care industry for medical and dental devices, equipment and instrumentation, including implant- able applications. With more than 35 brands in more than 1,500 formulations, Solvay has the broadest portfolio of high- performance health-care polymers in the world, the company asserts.

18 exhibitors CDA Presents — May 17, 2018 New materials designed to quicken procedures, shorten work time and save money HyperGrip Restoration Pickup Liquid and STELLAR DC Acrylic Pattern Resin now available By TAUB Products Staff n TAUB Products developed Hyper- Grip Pickup Liquid as an alternative to expensive single-use tacky micro sticks. By dipping and coating the brush head of any standard micro stick, create more than 400 place- ment sticks from one bottle. Once the liquid is dry, be confident in picking up and holding delicate veneers, crowns, internal implant screws, ortho brackets and even four- unit zirconia bridges, according to the company. HyperGrip will not leave a residue. Use the finished HyperGrip coated sticks with Veneer Styx Place- ment and positioning instruments for the best placement of veneers, crowns, inlays and onlays. TAUB is also proud to introduce a revolutionary dual-cure acrylic resin — STELLAR DC Acrylic. STELLAR DC Acrylic pattern resin is great for creat- ing verification indexes, transfer and insertion guides for implants; pick-up impression copings; abutment seat- ing jigs; connecting or fixing single implants parts for soldering and weld- ing; and creating structure models of implant components. It can be light cured in 20 seconds or will cure on its own in 60 seconds. It provides the fastest production time of any pattern resin and acrylic, burns out com- pletely, has no polymerization heat during cure and leaves no residue, according to the company. The material can be layered, repro- duces detail accurately and grinds easily, the company asserts. A new technique allows it to repair cracked or damaged dentures in minutes. “STELLAR DC Acrylic is a great addition to our product line,” said Jordan Taub, executive vice president, TAUB Products. “Using our chemistry and technology, we can now offer the CDT and prosthodontist an acrylic that increases production by dramatically reducing production times, which helps the bottom line. STELLAR’s on- demand continuous flow of material allows quick and easy fabrication.” 5 H/perGrip Pickup Liquid, left, and STELLAR DC Acr/lic. (Photos/Provided b/ TAUB Products) TAUB is known for three prod- ucts that solve many issues when placing cement-retained implant res- torations: GoCHx Gel Syringeable Chlorhexidine, Liquid Magic Resin Barrier abutment access plug and ZERO-G Bio-Implant Cement. According to Jordan Taub: “Zero-G provides permanent cementation of implant restorations and at the same time retrievability of those restora- tions. This is the best of both worlds for the doctors who want access to the abutment and also for the doctors who never want the restoration to come off. When we designed this cement, we understood incomplete cleanup of other cements, and peri-Implantitis was a cause of concern. Giving Zero- G the highest radiopacity over any other implant cement makes any excess cement extremely visible. The cleanup is unlike anything else on the market; any excess can be completely removed.” Here in Anaheim To learn more about HyperGrip Res- toration Pickup Liquid, STELLAR DC Acrylic Pattern Resin or any of TAUB Products’ other offerings, stop by the booth, No. 1280. Liquid Magic Resin Barrier Mate- rial is used for implant and cosmetic dentistry. It can be used to fill abut- ment access holes, replacing Teflon tape and other products typically used. Liquid Magic is placed into the access hole, light cured and can be easily removed. Liquid Magic can be used for cement or screw-retained restora- tions. As a barrier product, it can be used when isolation is desired. GoCHx Gel Syringeable Chlorhex- idine is a thin, non-alcohol based gel containing 0.8 percent chlorhexidine in a water-soluble formula. As a gel, GoCHx can be applied precisely, stay- ing where it is placed, and rinses com- pletely. Use GoCHx Gel for everyday use. From no-prep restorations to full mouth reconstruction, using emax®, CEREK®, zirconia, lithium disilicate, feldspathic porcelain and PFMs, FUSION-Zr® Esthetic Resin Cements provides the best results, accord- ing to the company. These esthetic cements allow dentists to present their best work by offering ease of use, fast cleanup, high-bond strength and correct color representation.

22 exhibitors CDA Presents — May 17, 2018 Compliance and CDC: What you should know By Howard S. Glazer, DDS, FAGD for n Is your office in compliance with the new CDC sterilization guidelines? Recently the CDC issued additional guidelines infection control, which contains the most up-to-date infection prevention recommenda- tions and expectations for safe care in the dental setting. Dental hand- pieces are specifically mentioned in the following quoted statement: including “Dental handpieces and associated attachments, low-speed motors and reusable prophylaxis angles, should always be heat steri- lized between patients and not high level or surface disinfected. Although these devices are considered semi- critical, studies have shown that their internal surfaces can become contaminated with patient materials during use. If these devices are not properly cleaned and heat sterilized, the next patient may be exposed to potentially infectious materials.”1 In my humble opinion, it implies that any item that can be removed from the air line should be heat steri- AD angle and an Elite nose cone attach- ment, you then get for free — yes, free — your choice of one Prophy Pro Hygiene handpiece or one Atom high- speed handpiece. It is Medidenta’s way of helping us out so that our den- tal practices will comply with these new guidelines. You probably have seen Medi- denta’s CDC bundle advertisements. Because the CDC guidelines specifi- cally call out slow-speed motors, this three-piece kit allows you to have a slow-speed motor with attachments and also receive a hygiene handpiece for free. Or, of course, you can get the free Atom high-speed handpiece, which I personally think is the bomb! Reference 1.

This independent study by the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, found that buffering 1 percent lidocaine with epinephrine 1:100,000 with the Anutra Local Anesthetic Delivery System® “reduces the pain on injection with a maxillary field block and results in similar lengths of pulpal anesthesia tested with a cold stimulus” as compared to the traditionally used 2 percent lidocaine with epinephrine 1:100,000. As a result of the study showing the benefits of the lower concentra- tion of lidocaine, Anutra Medical is now adding 1 percent lidocaine with epinephrine, 1:100,000 as one of its regular product offerings. In other studies conducted in April 2017, utilizing the Anutra Local Anes- thetic Delivery System, The School of Dentistry at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, found that, “Mean blood level differences of lido- caine for each patient were signifi- cantly lower after nerve block with the buffered drug compared with the nonbuffered agent.” Anutra Medical is excited to intro- duce 1 percent lidocaine 1:100,000 into the dental market in a more accessible format than it has been in the past. The option of this new concentration of lidocaine to dental practitioners further shows Anutra’s dedication to increasing patient expe- riences while transforming practi- tioner’s efficiency, according to the company. Anutra is currently accepting orders for the new product offering. 5 The Anutra Local Anesthetic Deliver/ S/stem. (Photo/Provided b/ Anutra Medical)
30 exhibitors CDA Presents — May 17, 2018 REVEAL HD Bulk: When you need speed but don’t want to sacriﬁce strength or esthetics By Dr. Joseph Kim 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 composite, optimized for 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- ture is accompanied by low volumet- ric shrinkage, high flexural strength and excellent radiopacity, resulting in long-lasting, durable restorations. 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- 5 (Photo/Provided b/ BISCO ginal leakage and dentinal sensitivity issues. Depending on operator prefer- ence, a flowable composite resin may be used in the deepest and least accessible areas of the preparation, including undercuts and the cavosur- face margins of proximal boxes. The appropriate shade of REVEAL HD Bulk can be placed in a single incre- ment for most Class 1, 2 and 3 restora- tions. For preparations that include areas that are deeper than 5 mm, it is advisable to build the restoration in appropriately sized increments. Keep in mind that because of its unique chemistry, care should be taken to avoid unnecessary exposure to light, including from ambient and overhead sources, in order to avoid Here in Anaheim Stop by the BISCO booth, No. 400, to learn more or visit reveal.bisco.com or call (800) 247-3368. premature hardening of the material. Finally, the restoration can be fin- ished with fine diamonds and finish- ing carbides, followed by finishing points. It is worth noting that since REVEAL HD Bulk’s viscosity has been tuned for bulk fill applications, it is preferable to limit occlusal carv- ing and shaping to primary anatomy prior to curing. After curing, greater detail may be added with finishing burs, as needed. Alternatively, when darker or restorative opaceous composite shades are required, REVEAL HD Bulk can by 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. REVEAL HD Bulk has been specifi- cally designed to address the needs of clinicians who require the speed of a bulk fill restorative composite with- out sacrificing strength and ignoring esthetics. It is currently available in the most commonly used shades, from A3 to B1, in both syringe and unit dose form.

Brady shares her experience with the new Ivory® ReLeaf ™ from Kulzer. What are some of the challenges you face as a clinician during common dental procedures? Keeping the field isolated from saliva, managing the water spray from equipment and retracting the tongue and cheek. Which procedures do you ﬁnd suction devices to be most useful? All procedures, as long as the suction can be hands-free. AD Here in Anaheim To learn more about the new Ivory ReLeaf from Kulzer, visit the booth, No. 742, to request a sample. You were one of the ﬁrst clinicians to try the Ivory ReLeaf. In what situations do you ﬁnd it to be most effective? It can be used with or without a bite block, so it is great for patients who cannot tolerate a bite block or have small mouths. It can also be easily taken in and out of the mouth as needed, and the patient can close his or her mouth, which is necessary for some proce- dures. What do you see in terms of the impact on patients when using the product? They are more comfortable as they do not feel the water pooling in their mouth and like they have to resist swallowing. It also protects the inside of their cheek. 4 Dr. Lee Ann Brad/. (Photo/Eric Seid, today Staff) What do you see as the value of Ivory ReLeaf to a practice? Shorter appointments, greater daily production, enhanced patient comfort and setting your practice apart.

38 exhibitors CDA Presents — May 17, 2018 ‘Uni-Verse-All’ holds any size sensor New product makes taking X-rays easier and faster for everybody n Digital X-rays are changing how you manage patient diagnostics. But while digital is faster and easier to use, it poses some unique challenges too. Sensor positioning is one such challenge. Unlike film, sensors are rigid and thick. And unlike film, there is no standard size to a “size-2” sensor. All this makes finding a quick and easy way to position your sensor somewhat more difficult than when you were using film. With Flow Dental’s new Uni-Verse- All positioner, you could take every imaginable X-ray while using only one positioner and one aiming ring. Sounds impossible, yet Flow’s Uni- Verse-All sensor positioner does just that. It will hold just about any size sensor. The Uni-Verse-All sensor holder lets you reposition the sensor along the bite plane so you can go from AD Here in Anaheim To learn more about Flow Dental offerings, stop by booth No. 662. a periapical to a bite wing in seconds, and without changing parts. The Uni-Verse-All is easy to use and set up is fast. You choose from two sizes of sensor holders (both included in Flow’s starter kit). You then snap the sensor holder into the Uni-Verse- All positioner and slide on the aiming ring. Just like that you’re ready. Move the holder down for anteri- ors or periapicals, up for bite wings. Lightweight for added patient com- fort, Uni-Verse-Alls are re-useable and autoclavable. A starter kit with everything you need retails for less than $57.
