With more than 150 educational courses (includ- ing lectures and hands-on workshops) and 400 exhibitors demonstrating new techniques as well as innova- tive products and services, there are plenty of options to go around for mak- ing the best use of your time. If it’s education you’re interested in, you won’t want to miss today’s open- ing lecture on facial reconstruction, from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Presented by Lawrence E. Brecht, DDS, the director of maxillofacial prosthetics at New York University College of Dentistry, “Facial Reconstruction to Facial Trans- plantation: Success Through a Team Approach” will discuss the advan- tages of using a surgical-prosthetic- industrial team approach in recon- struction, from the simplest examples to the most complex. “We’ll begin with how a team approach can benefit children with a cleft palate and the simplest of ‘recon- struction’ of a smile for a baby and move up through jaw reconstruction for cancer and trauma patients — uti- lizing the ‘Jaw in a Day’ procedure — and move outside the oral structures, to the orbit, nose and ear, and the technology that is used to create those prostheses,” Brecht said. The lecture will end with a discus- sion of what Brecht calls the “worst- case scenario” — when facial trans- plantation becomes necessary.

4 exhibitors CDA Presents — September 6, 2018 Predictable and functional esthetics with low shrinkage and reduced stress By Shofu Dental Staff n One of the greatest limitations in the use of resin composites is the material’s shrinkage during polym- erization. This process, typically associated with dynamic development of elastic modulus, creates a network of stress cells within the resin composite and its interface with the tooth struc- ture. The unrelieved stress can weaken the bond between the tooth structure and the restoration. Consequently, marginal leakage, tooth fracture and a restoration’s displacement may occur and further initiate the forma- tion of secondary caries and post- operative sensitivity. On average, the majority of resin composites in the market shrink about 2 to 5 percent. As polymerization shrinkage can- not be completely eliminated, a pleth- ora of techniques and protocols has been developed to conduct the manip- ulation of restorative procedures to minimize the effects of shrinkage and associated shrinkage stress. Introduction of various new com- posite systems with low-shrink chem- istry may also help overcome the problem. A next generation of a bioactive composite indicated for all cavity classes, I—V, Beautifil II LS (Low Shrink) provides general practition- ers with the means to reduce polym- erization shrinkage and shrinkage stress while creating predictable and functional esthetics. Like all restorative materials from Shofu, this novel composite incorporates the proprietary bioac- tive Giomer chemistry, clinically proven in eight- and 13-year recall studies to release and recharge fluo- ride and other beneficial ions and inhibit plaque formation to help establish a stable pH in the oral envi- ronment. Highly filled, 83 wt percent, Beautifil II LS demonstrates excellent compressive and flexural strength (ca. 370 MPa and 120 MPa, respec- 5 Functional and naturally beautiful restorations created with Beautifil II LS.

Shofu attributes these results to a new proprietary monomer and high-density pre-polymerized fillers, which also exhibit tooth-like optical properties and natural esthet- ics. Available in syringes, tips and value kits, in 14 dentin and enamel shades, Beautifil II LS offers predict- able and functional esthetics with greater strength, higher wear resist- ance and naturally beautiful esthet- ics, according to the company. Features of Beautiﬁl II LS (Low Shrink) • Lowest volumetric shrinkage (0.85 percent) and shrinkage stress (2.72 MPa). • Greater strength and higher wear resistance. • Tooth-like esthetics with natural fluorescence and chameleon effect. • Polishes in an instant. • Sustained fluoride release/ recharge with bioactive Giomer chemistry. 5 Beautifil II LS.

14 exhibitors CDA Presents — September 6, 2018 Solvay Dental 360 shows off its paradigm-shifting polymer Here in San Francisco, 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 San Francisco. 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. 2132. “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 by Solvay 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 San Francisco To learn more about Ultaire AKP, stop by the Solvay Dental 360 booth, No. 2132. “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.

The complete unit includes two power packs, and each power pack can run up to 10 hours. Designs for Vision has also added the high-definition imaging to LED DayLite WireLess Mini HDi, providing a lightweight, cordless solution with light intensity comparable to many corded headlights. You can choose high-definition imaging with either a wired or wireless design to meet your preference, and all HDi headlights will illuminate the entire oral cavity. Designs for Vision’s WireLess head- lights free you from being tethered to a battery pack. The simple modu- lar designs uncouple the headlights from a specific frame or single pair of loupes. Prior technology married a cord- less light to one pair of loupes via a cumbersome integration of the batter- ies and electronics into the frame. The compact design of the LED DayLite WireLess headlights are inde- pendent of any frame/loupes. In addition, Designs for Vision is also featuring the REALITY 5-star rated The Micro 3.5EF Scopes, which utilize a revolutionary optical design that reduces the size of the prismatic telescope by 50 percent and reduces the weight by 40 percent while provid- ing an expanded-field, full oral cavity view at 3.5x magnification. Building on the award-winning design, the newest addition to the Micro Series line is the Micro 4.5EF Scopes. These scopes reduce both the size and weight of the telescopes by 44 percent.

20 exhibitors CDA Presents — September 6, 2018 Planmeca USA introduces its ULD certiﬁcation program By Planmeca USA Staff n In March, during the Hinman Dental Meeting in Atlanta, Planmeca USA introduced a certification pro- gram designed to encourage dialogue between patients and dental practi- tioners on imaging radiation levels. The Helsinki, Finland-based den- tal technology company, with North American headquarters in Roselle, Ill., manufactures and sells imaging equipment, such as the Planmeca ProMax® 3D family of units. This CBCT system has a unique ultra-low-dose (ULD) feature that delivers a lower dose of radiation while achieving imaging quality that allows clinicians to provide an opti- mal diagnosis. “A Planmeca ProMax 3D system using ULD can drastically reduce patient radiation by up to 77 per- cent — without a statistical reduction Here in San Francisco To learn more about the Planmeca Pro- Max 3D family of units or the Planmeca ULD certification program, stop by the Planmeca USA booth, No. 1428. AD in image quality,” said Brett Hines, president of Planmeca USA. Hines cited a study published by Dr. J.B. Ludlow and D. Koivisto that demonstrates radiation doses used in dental imaging can be reduced without loss of diagnostic quality. The company is not aware of any other dental imaging manufacturer with an independent study that can claim the same. Because of attention in the lay press about this issue, it’s more likely that dental patients, too, may have questions and concerns. To help encourage these conversa- tions about imaging safety, Planmeca USA developed a complimentary ULD certification program exclusively for Planmeca ProMax 3D ULD-capable systems. ULD certiﬁcation program features: • Planmeca ULD certified office display materials to inform patients that you are using advanced safety/ quality care X-ray equipment. • Access to downloadable digital materials for use on your website and social media outlets to educate and market your practice as Planmeca ULD certified. • Ability to become part of a searchable database of Planmeca ULD certified dentists, for prospec- tive patients who seek low-radiation imaging practices in their area. • A complimentary program avail- able to all practices using Planmeca ProMax 3D Ultra Low Dose enabled systems.
