10 news CDA Presents — September 7, 2018 Brush or ﬂoss ﬁrst? Study suggests ideal sequence for removing plaque Flossing before brushing may reduce dental plaque and help maximize the beneﬁts of cavity-ﬁghting ﬂuoride By The American Academy of Periodontology Staff n Researchers have found that flossing before brushing may be the ideal sequence for the most thorough removal of dental plaque. The report is featured in the Journal of Periodon- tology (JOP), which is published by the American Academy of Periodontol- ogy (AAP). Titled “The Effect of Toothbrushing and Flossing Sequence on Interden- tal Plaque Reduction and Fluoride Retention: A Randomized Controlled Clinical Trial,” the study assessed 25 participants who were asked to brush their teeth first, then use dental floss to clean the spaces between their teeth (brush-floss). In a second phase, the same group was asked to use floss, then brush their teeth (floss-brush). Researchers found that the amount of plaque between the teeth and in AD the mouth overall was significantly reduced when participants used the floss-brush approach. The researchers contend that as flossing loosens bacteria and debris from between the teeth, brushing afterward (when the mouth is rinsed with water) further clears the mouth of these particles. Plaque bacteria are the primary culprit behind the development of periodontal disease, an inflammatory condition that occurs when bacteria accumulate below the gum line. Peri- odontal disease can lead to swelling, irritation, gum recession and tooth loss if left untreated. “Patients often ask which step should come first in their daily oral hygiene routine,” said Steven R. Dan- iel, DDS, president of the AAP. “While this study finds that flossing before brushing may result in the reduction of plaque, it’s important for everyone to remember to do both every day to maintain the health of their smiles.” The study also found that fluoride, a mineral that aids in the prevention of cavities and tooth decay, remained in the mouth at higher levels when participants flossed before brush- ing. Study subjects used a fluoride toothpaste during both phases of the investigation. “As with choosing the right type of toothbrush and interdental cleaner, patients should also consult with their dentists on whether a fluoride toothpaste is best for them,” Daniel said. The AAP recommends flossing regularly, brushing twice a day and undergoing yearly comprehensive periodontal evaluations for the pre- vention of periodontal disease, which is treatable and often reversible with proper and timely care from a peri- odontist. The complete study can be found on the JOP portal of the Wiley Online Library at https://onlinelibrary.wiley. com/journal/19433670. About the American Academy of Periodontology The American Academy of Periodon- tology represents more than 8,000 periodontists — specialists in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of inflammatory diseases affecting the gums and supporting structures of the teeth and in the placement of dental implants. Periodontics is one of the nine dental specialties recognized by the American Dental Association.
12 exhibitors CDA Presents — September 7, 2018 EyeSpecial adds features for faster and easier use Pre-programmed shooting modes enable digital camera users to navigate through tasks without extensive photographic skills or experience By Shofu Dental Staff n According to Shofu Dental, cap- turing high-quality clinical photo- graphs in a predictable and consistent manner has been the hallmark of EyeSpecial C-2, the first digital cam- era designed exclusively for dentistry. A third-time recipient of the pres- tigious Cellerant’s Best in Class Tech- nology Award, the EyeSpecial C-2 cap- tures images for case documentation, diagnosis and treatment planning, patient communication and educa- tion, insurance verification, legal documentation and dental lab col- laboration. Proprietary to Shofu’s camera are dental-specific, pre-programmed shooting modes that enable clini- cians, assistants, hygienists and den- tal laboratory technicians to navi- gate through their photography tasks without the need of extensive photo- graphic knowledge or experience. For instance, in order to record orthodontic photographs with the EyeSpecial camera, an operator will just need to select the button corre- sponding to FACE MODE to capture extraoral images. In a similar method, an operator will choose STANDARD MODE to achieve anterior and buccal intraoral photographs, and MIRROR MODE to accomplish occlusal pictures. For every step of any photo series, the EyeSpecial will automatically set the appropriate f-stop, aperture and focal length to deliver an ideal photograph, leaving an operator with the selection of a pre-programmed mode. Incorporating intuitive, high-tech functions tailored specifically for dentistry, the EyeSpecial camera is designed to handle dental applica- 5 The new and improved EyeSpecial C-3 digital dental camera helps dental practices and laboratories increase patient acceptance and productivity.

Specifically, one of the more useful features of Shofu’s camera is the ISOLATE SHADE MODE, which instantly grays out the gingival tissue to improve visual perspicacity for accurate shade analysis and com- munication with a dental laboratory technician. When combined with a draw/edit function, which allows for making notes directly on images, this attrib- ute may be of a value for an effective treatment evaluation or a discussion about the progress or challenges in a treatment modality. Equipped with a cropped-frame, high-resolution sensor and ultra- innovative FlashMatic module, a pro- prietary system of ring and dual-point flashes, Shofu’s camera demonstrates true-color reproduction and an excep- tional depth-of-field range, according to the company. Here in San Francisco For a live camera demonstration and to learn how the new EyeSpecial C-3 can improve communication with your dental laboratory and patients, stop by the Shofu booth, No. 828. The EyeSpecial also possesses anti-shake attributes that ensure clear images with each use. The panoramic LCD screen of the camera is larger than displays and view- finders of typical digital single-lens- reflex (DSLR) and point-and-shoot cameras, and it can be operated with a gloved hand. The screen employs gridlines that facilitate a proper image alignment, helping reduce the risk of photo- graphing patients at an incorrect angle. Engineered to provide function- ality, the ultralight (weighing ca. 1 lb) EyeSpecial camera complies with the most stringent infection control protocols. The heavy-duty camera’s body is water-, chemical- and scratch-resistant, and it can be swiftly disinfected with a sterilizing towelette, virtually eliminating the possibility of cross-contamination. The latest model of this smart camera, EyeSpecial C-3, is packed with plenty of milestone upgrades, including a larger sensor, a faster processor, optimized software and a higher resolution LCD screen, all of which will help the entire dental team achieve their photography tasks in a more intuitive, faster and easier fashion, the company asserts. For a live camera demonstration and to learn how the new EyeSpe- cial C-3 can improve communication with your dental laboratory and patients, visit Shofu’s booth, No. 828.

16 exhibitors CDA Presents — September 7, 2018 Planmeca expands CAD/CAM portfolio with the launch of the PlanMill 30 S 5 (Photo/Provided by Planmeca USA) AD By Planmeca USA Staff n Planmeca USA recently announced the launch of its newest mill, the Plan- meca PlanMill® 30 S, for chairside milling. The PlanMill 30 S made its debut at the California Dental Asso- ciation tradeshow in Anaheim back in May and can now be found at booth No. 1428 here in San Francisco. The Planmeca PlanMill 30 S has been designed for optimal precision by combining high-performance servo motor technology and dura- ble milling components. Capable of reaching maximum speeds of 100,000 rpms, a 4-axis high-speed spindle is ideal for single-visit restorations and everyday milling of inlays, onlays, crowns or bridges, according to the company. Direct drive linear force motors used in the manufacturing of aero- space components are unique to Plan- meca milling units, and the company asserts they result in an accurate and robust platform capable of milling a range of materials to provide the best treatment option for the patient. A user interface coupled with Sys- tem 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 pro- cess by detecting worn or broken burs and automatically replacing them for a refined restorative finish. The Plan- meca PlanMill 30 S is designed on an open platform for seamless integra- tion with most dental equipment. “The launch of the Planmeca Plan- Mill 30 S is an ideal option for custom- ers who are considering CAD/CAM technology but have been hesitant to invest,” said Brett Hines, president of Planmeca USA. “When combined with the Emerald Scanner, Planmeca 3-D imaging and Romexis software, the 30 S creates an incredible system that brings the digital workflow to life in one seamless, easy process.” Here in San Francisco To learn more about the Planmeca PlanMill 30 S, stop by the Planmeca USA booth, No. 1428, or visit www. planmecausa.com.
18 exhibitors CDA Presents — September 7, 2018 Patients discover the advantages of a metal-free, lightweight, comfortable option for RPDs By Solvay Dental 360 Staff n Solvay Dental 360™ went to the source to gain perspective on the patient experience for its metal-free removable partial dentures made with Ultaire™ AKP. ‘Very comfortable, very lightweight, very easy to speak with’ For decades, Connie wore low-quality upper and lower partial dentures with poor occlusion, putting her remaining teeth at risk. She was eager to try a metal-free option, especially when she heard it was lightweight, comfort- able and biocompatible. “The Ultaire is very comfortable, very lightweight and very easy to speak with. I don’t feel that it moves as I talk or eat,” Connie said. “I feel that it follows the contour of my mouth more, and it’s very much more comfortable. If someone approached me about the Ultaire product, I would definitely tell them that it’s a good product and absolutely try it!” ‘Ultaire is great, it’s fantastic, I love it’ For years, Zitta had worn metal den- tures with clasps that left her mouth scarred and sore. Then Zitta’s dentist prescribed Ultaire AKP metal-free removable partial dentures, and her mouth pain became a thing of the past. Made from high-performance poly- mer and molded to the shape of the individual patient’s mouth, Ultaire AKP dentures lock into place with smooth, stationary, bone-like clasps. At the final try-in appointment, Zitta surprised everyone by dancing with joy about the fit and feel of her new Ultaire AKP partial. “Ultaire filled out my mouth better. It transformed my whole face,” Zitta said. “Ultaire is great. It’s fantastic. I love it.” ‘It has been life-changing for me’ Two years ago, Jaclyn was fitted with a lower metal partial denture to replace her missing back molars. But her partial was tighter on one side than the other, and it tended to trap food underneath the metal. Adjustments 5 Connie’s metal partial vs. her Ultaire AKP partial.

She still suffered extreme metal denture discomfort. “A lot of healthy things that you eat such as nuts and granola, things that I loved, I was unable to eat them,” Jaclyn said. ‘It has been life-changing for me. Eating with the new Ultaire frame, it’s like I have my molars back. I mean, most of the time I forget I even have it in my mouth.’ Here in San Francisco To take advantage of a special offer – two Ultaire AKP partials for the price of one – be sure to visit booth No. 2132. The day Jaclyn’s dentist first put the new Ultaire AKP partial denture in her mouth, Jaclyn could feel the difference immediately, “It actually fit perfectly the first time ... It has been life-changing for me,” she said. “Eating with the new Ultaire frame, it’s like I have my molars back. I mean, most of the time I forget I even have it in my mouth.” Ready to try Ultaire AKP?
