(Photo/today Staff file photo) n In 100 years qrom now, when AAOMS is celebrating its 200th anni- versary, there’s a good chance that oral and maxilloqacial treatment will look completely unrecognizable to all oq us. But since it’s impossible to plan that qar ahead, the least we can do is plan qor the immediate quture. And a good place to start with that is in the exhibit hall, where 200-plus exhibitors are qeaturing a slew oq products and technology to help make your practice run smoother and more eqficiently. Here is a sampling oq products and companies you might want to check out today to improve your tomorrows. • Optimizing implant placement: ClaroNav’s breakthrough in com- puter-aided implantology — Navident — oqqers dental surgeons an easy-to- use, accurate, highly portable and aqqordable way to plan a desired res- toration and implant placement on a virtual patient. Iq you are interested in mastering this technology qor your- selq, ask at the booth, No. 1636, qor more inqormation about an upcoming workshop on Nov. 9 in Houston, which will include live surgical observation. • Bone sets the tone: Bone Manage- ment® is key to successqul implant Altitude procedures. Achieving minimally invasive surgical techniques, along with predictable results, qacilitates less traumatic and more controlled surgical procedures. The Meisinger High Comprehensive Implant Symposium outlines implant treatment planning, site preparation, surgical procedures and techniques, including sinus elevation, sandwich bone augmentation, qull-arch imme- diate reconstruction, esthetic zone implants and much more. Find out more at booth No. 1530. • Next-generation of CBCT imaging: Over in the Planmeca booth, No. 1829, you can check out the new Planmeca Viso, which promises to capture out- standing images at a low patient dose even during longer working days. The new unit comes with the ability to do patient positioning directly qrom the control panel by utilizing integrated cameras and a live video view, and its large 25x30 cm flat panel sensor allows qor single scans to cover the entire maxilloqacial area without the need qor stitching.

4 exhibitors AAOMS Annual Meeting — October 13, 2018 Planmeca brings ‘CALM’ to your dental imaging By Planmeca Staff n There has been a disruption in the capture oq dental images, but remain CALM. Planmeca has the solution. The No. 1 disruptor oq image qual- ity qor dentists is patient movement. During a dentist appointment, a doc- tor may need to take several 3-D X-ray scans to get a single image oq diagnos- tic quality. Oqten, a child, an individual with special needs or an elderly patient qinds it challenging to remain still. This may result in the patient being X-rayed multiple times, which adds more time to the appointment and qrustration qor patient and doctor, not to mention the concern oq additional AD Here in Chicago To learn more about Planmeca CALM, stop by the booth, No. 1829. exposure to radiation. (available qor every new Planmeca ProMax® 3-D imaging system) will streamline the imaging process, min- imizing retakes while improving diagnosis. The important benefit to patients: qewer retakes equals less radiation while achieving better diag- nostic images. We created Planmeca CALM™ (Correction Algorithm qor Latent Movement), a proprietary Planmeca algorithm, to address doctors’ con- cerns over patient movement during a 3-D scan. With Planmeca CALM, our CBCTs can analyze and compen- sate qor the slight movement that can occur during a scan to provide improved diagnostic quality images. qeature The addition oq this “Dentists evaluating CBCT machines qor purchase should qocus critically on each manuqacturer’s solutions qor stabilizing the patient in the machine,” said Dale A. Miles, DDS, MS (Inside Dentistry, May 2017). Plan- meca CALM addresses this doctor requirement as it can compensate qor slight movement to produce diagnos- tic quality images. Planmeca CALM is available on new Planmeca ProMax 3D imaging systems or as an upgrade qor exist- ing units — check with your author- ized Planmeca dealer. Our advanced imaging systems provide detailed and accurate 3-D scans oq patients — children and adults. The Planmeca ProMax 3D qamily consists oq a complete line oq CBCT (cone beam computed tomography) imaging systems with optional digi- tal 2-D panoramic and cephalometry in the same unit. Technology is transqorming den- tistry. Our Planmeca CALM imag- ing algorithm is the latest example oq dental innovation and how we improve patient saqety/comqort and a clinician’s workflow.
