SHOW REVIEW news A real product experience W&H held several “Walk & Hands-on Tours” at IDS At IDS 2019, Austria-based com- pany W&H decided not to host one large press conference, but rather to invite the press to attend specially stylised “Walk & Hands-on Tours”. Held at different times throughout the trade fair at the W&H booth, the tours allowed participants to get up close and personal with the latest products released at the fair. On Wednesday, Dental Tribune In- ternational attended an afternoon tour. Simon Niedermüller, Director of Business Management, led the tour. Besides a number of products that the company had on display, W&H launched its latest cloud-based tech- nology, the ioDent system. “The ioDent I l T D / e b b i r G e k u L @ Simon Niedermüller, Director of Business Management at W&H, led the tour. platform is an Internet of Things platform connecting different W&H I l T D / e b b i r G e k u L @ from our products, implantology products through to our sterilisers, but also provides service support to the clinics,” explained Niedermüller.

SHOW REVIEW industry Dürr Dental presents itself again as a modern provider of systematic diagnostic solutions The future of dental diagnostics is digital. That is why Dürr Dental is developing both the hardware and the software for a complete digital workﬂow. Among the new products presented by the specialist for dental technologies during IDS 2019 were VistaVox S Ceph and VistaSoft. VistaVox S Ceph: An all-in-one unit for the full range of radiographic diagnostics n Dentists are already using VistaVox S for excellent panoramic and CBCT ra- diographic images. With VistaVox S Ceph, Dürr Dental is now offering or- thodontists an all-in-one digital radio- graphic device adapted to their needs. One of the special features of VistaVox S and VistaVox S Ceph is S-Pan techno- logy for excellent panoramic images. Here, VistaVox S selects from a large number of parallel layers the image sections that correspond best to the anatomy of the patient. This results in images showing the actual positio n- ing of the teeth, automatically can- celling out certain mispositioning errors. This means fewer repeat im- ages and huge time-savings. Just like VistaVox S, VistaVox S Ceph really stands out with a perfect 3-D imaging volume (Ø 130 × 85 mm). It follows the natural shape of the jaw arch and, thus, perfectly maps the relevant region for diagnosis—including the molars. VistaVox S Ceph offers all the qualities of VistaVox S—with the addition of six programmes for time- saving cephalometric exposures. These AD include the options “Lateral Head”, “Full Lateral Head”, “PA Head”, “Sub- mentovertex”, “Waters View” and “Hand”. As with all other products from Dürr Dental, VistaVox S Ceph is all about smooth processes and user friendliness. That is why the new product features two sophis- ticated sensors. There is no need for unplugging and reconnecting be- tween the 3-D radiographic unit and the Ceph boom, a process that is both cumbersome and risky. The therapist selects the required pro- gramme, positions the patient, and can then immediately start taking the radiograph. VistaSoft: The heart of your digital practice The latest genera- tion of Dürr Dental ima g - ing software covers the complete digital ima- ging workflow for den- tal practices. VistaSoft from Dürr Dental offers nine different modules that cover all the func- tions, including taking and processing digital radiographic and camera images, transferring ra- diographic images via the cloud, and planning implants and drilling templates. This is thanks to the ergonomic design and one-click design philosophy, which ensure that practice team members can get used to the software very quickly and use it intuitively. VistaSoft Implant is a state-of-the-art tool for complete back- ward planning, from crowns to im- plants. The resulting planning data is saved as an open STL file and can be forwarded without complications to, for example, a laboratory. The same applies to drilling templates, which can be created with the mo- dule VistaSoft Guide. The VistaSoft Cloud offers the perfect platform for sharing, for example, CBCT images really easily with colleagues, labo- ratories, clinics or patients. Data and comments can be exchanged effi- ciently and securely, as the image data is transmitted via the VistaSoft Cloud in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation. VistaSoft is compatible with all current radio- graphic, scanner and camera systems from Dürr Dental. 7 LISBON | 14 | 15 | 16 | NOV | 2019 CHOOSE THE BEST SPOT FOR YOUR BRAND WITH MORE THAN 15 800 VISITORS IN 2018, EXPODENTÁRIA IS THE LARGEST DENTAL EXHIBITION HELD IN PORTUGAL.

industry SHOW REVIEW DryShield’s new isolation system lands in Europe Interview: Adopting intraoral scanners is vital for success An interview with Matt Muramoto, Regional Sales Manager at DryShield An interview with Thomas Weldingh, Deputy Group CEO of 3DISC last IDS responded very positively to the DryShield system—it was the first time they had seen an entirely auto- clavable system on the market. They were talking about its cost-effective- ness and ease of use with installation in seconds, and, of course, they appre- ciated that DryShield, like other mod- ern isolation systems, can dramati- cally increase efficiencies: a study of 100 dentists showed a typical reduc- tion in chair time of 20–30 per cent. How comfortable is this system for patients? Because Dr Nguyen works with kids, patient comfort was a top priority. The material is a soft, ﬂexible silicone that doesn’t impinge on the soft tissue, and is great in addressing mandibular tori and other oral issue. DryShield increases comfort for patients: all the li quids are aspirated, the patient’s throat is protected, his or her mouth can rest on the bite block, and the procedure is over more quickly. The bite block is interchangeable, which means it can be selected to fit to an array of different-sized mouths, for both children and adults. We’re starting to see patients ask their dentists if they use DryShield, and also dentists using DryShield to attract new patients. Given the continually evolving nature of dentistry, companies need to con- sider education when entering a new market. What is DryShield’s approach to education? DryShield’s vision is to bring new technology to the dentistry profession— to help the profession grow and to help dental practices evolve. We be- lieve that modern isolation is essential for dentists in serving their patients while gaining ﬂexibility and efficiency. Dentists that already use modern isola- tion understand the value proposition of DryShield in terms of providing greater safety and patient comfort, re- ducing chair time and ensuring that schedules run in an efficient manner. It’s the more traditional isolation users that need a little more education on the tech nology and its value. For in- stance, we talk to customers about our very simple sterilisation protocol, in which DryShield goes into the normal autoclave workﬂow with other dental tools. We go above and beyond by offering every customer a Q & A ses- sion with an expert, talking through the installation process, patient intro- duction and so on. We also provide quick-start guides, monthly tips and how-to videos in order to provide help at each stage of the experience. For more information, visit www.dryshield.com 7 n Modern isolation systems are de- signed to accomplish the tasks of a high-suction evacuator, dry angles, cotton rolls and gauze in one easy-to- use device. DryShield is an exciting and innovative company in this field and just made its second appearance at the International Dental Show (IDS) in Cologne in Germany after recently receiving the CE marking for its eponymous product, allowing its sale in Europe. Dental Tribune Inter- national spoke with Matt Muramoto, a Regional Sales Manager at DryShield, at IDS 2019 about the device and the company’s plans for introducing the system to European dentists. DryShield promises to be an all-in-one system. What features does it offer? DryShield was designed with the dentist in mind by our Founder, Dr Lan Nguyen, a long-time practising pae- diatric dentist. He was seeking to ad- dress a need that he and his colleagues faced, with an all-in-one isolation device that was autoclavable, comfortable and easy to use. DryShield combines iso- lation, retraction of the soft tissue, pro- tection of the throat from liquids and debris, and aspiration of the oral cavity. It frees up the dental assistant—who, by the way, loves DryShield—to multi- task and prep for the next procedure. We’ve had great success with DryShield since launching in May 2014. Why has DryShield decided to enter the European market? We have experienced enormous success in the US and Canada, and Eu- rope was the next area of expansion for us. We have had so many dentists contact us from all over Europe re- questing an isolation system that was autoclavable. They were looking for something that could fit into the eco- nomics of a typical dental office, rather than expensive disposable mouth- pieces. Europe represented an attrac- tive market with a high level of demon- strated interest in our product. Now that we have our CE marking, we are selling in Europe and actively building relationships with dealers. What has the response in Europe been so far? The response has been fantastic since our partici- pation in IDS 2017. Attendees at the 5 The Heron IOS intraoral scanner from 3DISC. 5 Thomas Weldingh is Deputy Group CEO of 3DISC. n The US-based company 3DISC, which recently launched the Heron IOS (intraoral scanner), specialises in quality imaging solutions for den- tists. Dental Tribune International spoke with Thomas Weldingh, Dep- uty Group CEO of 3DISC, about this scanner and the company’s focus at IDS. Mr Weldingh, which products is 3DISC highlighting at IDS 2019? We are proud to be showcasing the Heron IOS solution. Recent up- grades mean that the scanner now de- livers more detailed and accurate im- ages, has a larger range of indications and operates at a faster speed. Heron IOS is the smallest and most light- weight colour scanner on the market and provides unsurpassed ergonom- ics for dental professionals. It is de- signed and manufactured in the US. Can you describe the price model of the Heron IOS? 3DISC primarily targets small- to mid-sized dental practices. What factors have led to this segment of the market being your focus? The adoption of intraoral scan- ners in solo practices is vital for companies’ success. Approximately 70 per cent of all dental practices in the US and 75 per cent in Europe are solo practices. However, only an esti- mated 5 to 15 per cent have intraoral scanners. Simplicity is key for most practices in this segment. The Heron IOS is recognised as being a simple, reliable and cost-effective solution with an open system structure that allows for ongoing ﬂexibility and freedom of choice. The Heron IOS is available at a one-time, affordable fee, with no ad- ditional costs. The scanner comes with a free programme that auto- ma tically updates the scanner with software upgrades as they are re- leased, improving characteristics such as scanning speed, scanning accuracy, colour rendering and us- ability. It is safe to invest in this scan- ner today, knowing you will always have the latest generation even years from now. Thank you very much for the inter- view. 7 AD The ﬁrst surgery and sterilization line that shows your professionalism!

SHOW REVIEW industry Shaping the future of dentistry with function and aesthetics n The dental think tank edelweiss dentistry is known to have pioneered the only direct biomechanical ve- neering system that has overcome the disadvantages of organic fillers which are commonly used in com- posite veneers. Applying the laser- sintered concept, this technology has dramatically reduced the natural shortfalls of conventional compos- ites and, thereby, enhanced aesthet- ics and function. The product range varies from ultrathin anterior and occlusal enamel shells to root canal posts with build- ups, and even includes a novelty in paediatric dentistry: integrating in- organic composite crowns instead of conventional metal crowns or zir- conia crowns. This enables a safe and easy treatment, creating healthy smiles for children. Never before has it been fea- sible to directly create the natural shape and youthful luminance of a tooth so easily and perfectly in only one appointment. Its versatile area of application, together with its time- and cost-saving procedure, ma- kes the edelweiss DIRECT SYSTEM a sound investment in the future with the best interests of the patient in mind. The philosophy of edelweiss dentistry is simple: making dental treatments easy and affordable for patients and dentists alike while following ethical aspects of modern treatments, which is achieved by respecting the principles of biocom- patibility and bioaesthetics. This all together allows minimally invasive treatments. Restoration and optimisa- tion are carried out while considering and preserving the healthy tooth structure. The function and aesthet- ics are reconstructed with a highly filled nanohybrid composite very similar to the tooth substance—a concept that clearly speaks in favour of non-restorative or additive tech- niques. This makes the edelweiss DIRECT SYSTEM the state-of-the-art for modern and minimally invasive aesthetic dentistry. The translucent VENEER and OCCLUSIONVD shells, as well as the PEDIATRIC CROWNs, represent the anatomical basis for individual or complete dental reconstructions. After a successful splint therapy, the OCCLUSIONVD shells, where “VD” stands for “vertical dimension”, can be adjusted individually and be used adhesively as non-prep overlays to solve functional problems. The edelweiss POST & CORE system achieves in adhesive bonding with the tooth, from root to crown, a biomechanical monobloc. The posts have a conical shape for better post space adaptation. The translucency of the fibre-free post, supported by the integrated lens design, allows un- interrupted light transmission for com- plete polymerisation. Moreover, the opaque build-up in dentine shade A1 comes in different anatomical forms. Like VENEER and OCCLUSIONVD shells, edelweiss PEDIATRIC CROWNs are made of a laser-sintered barium glass, rendering them both anti- bacterial and plaque-resistant. Un- like conventional paediatric crowns, edelweiss PEDIATRIC CROWNs have the same ﬂexural modulus as that of natural teeth and that is why the antagonist teeth will not be dam- aged. The mesial and distal margins of the edelweiss PEDIATRIC CROWNs follow the natural gingival line of the primary teeth and imitate these teeth in both form and function. The prefabricated, bioaesthetic mor- phology allows for a quick and safe treatment. You can achieve the maximum aesthetic results—that are also mini- mally invasive—in just one appoint- ment. No matter the dental situation, edelweiss has the right restoration for it.

Each element of the Handy Sur- gery line has been studied in order to replicate the most important character- istics of a real operating room, resulting in products inspired by a dental unit but with more advanced functions, and to improve the dentist–patient interaction in utmost safety. Handy Surgery is ideal for specia- lised medi- cal clinics that offer a wide range of ser vices, in- cluding den- tal, cosmetic, der- matological, gynaecological and oto- rhinolaryngological treatments. The sterilisation line, complete with exclusive equipment, is designed to bring together all the equipment and instruments necessary for the sterilisa- tion process without creating any hin- drance or obstruction. Sterinox is a se- ries of top-of-the-range products aimed at dental surgery clinics, but is also suit- able for ordinary dental practices re- quiring utmost sterilisation safety. Handy Surgery is synonymous with • versatility—the equipment and ac- cessories can be adapted to the in- dividual needs of each clinic • linearity—the minimal design and materials that are used give the en- tire range a professional and stream- lined look, sending a message of cleanliness and safety to patients • exclusivity—the entire line has two pat- ents, attesting to its uniqueness and level of innovation for professional or- thodontic treatments and more. Now Handy Surgery includes a comprehensive design for a sterili sation room that is • professional—designed to guaran- tee maximum professionalism and cleanliness • technological—including a set of high-performance and high-tech in- struments and equipment that are indispensable for carrying out all the steps in the sterilisation process • safe—the highest hygiene stan- dards minimise the risk of any form of contamination.

SHOW REVIEW industry Chlorhexidine, but not as you know it… CURAPROX Perio Plus+ CURAPROX Perio Plus+ is chlorhexidine combined with CITROX. This unique combination has been proven to be more effective than chlorhexidine alone. n Swiss oral health company Curaden launched CURAPROX Perio Plus+ at IDS 2019. This pioneering antiseptic range is chlorhexidine, but not as you know it—the mouthwashes, gel and toothpaste are all naturally enhanced chlorhexidine products, and pave the way towards organic oral antiseptics with minimal side effects. The secret? A potent and natural antibacterial: CITROX. Maximal effect… Research led by Prof. David Williams at Cardiff University in the UK has proven the unique sy n- ergy between chlorhexidine and CITROX—a natural antibacterial agent extracted from bitter oranges. “The active agents in CITROX can attack multiple sites of a microbial cell, leading to improved deactivation, and making the agent effective at inhibiting microorganisms known to cause infections in the oral ca- vity,” says Prof. Williams. “Our re- search has shown that a combina- tion of chlorhexidine and CITROX was demonstrably more effective at inhibiting bacteria, compared with using either of these ingredients alone.” paste contains a balanced 0.09 per cent.

SHOW REVIEW industry Polydentia showcases its innovative restorative solutions at IDS n Polydentia thanks everyone for vi- siting us at IDS in Cologne. We highly value the interest in our new products and our line of sectional matrix sys- tems. For fi ve days, dental profession- als, opinion leaders and dealers from all over the world could appreciate our restorative innovations displayed during the dental expo. This year, we also offered six live product demon- strations featu r ing dentists and Style- Italiano silver members who ex- plained how they achieve excellent anterior and pos terior restorations and save chair time with our sectional matrix systems and conservative dentistry so lutions. We would like to thank Drs Katherine Losada, Anna Salat, Jordi Manauta, Giuseppe Chio- dera and Antonio Nicolò for presenting our products during the dental show. Polydentia products launched at IDS MyTines Small, Medium and Large are autoclavable, replaceable and interchangeable ring extremities especially developed to fi t on to my- Clip 2.0 and myRing Forte. These ex- tremities enhance the adaptation of Polydentia’s sectional matrices to a wide range of clinical situations and teeth with different crown heights. In the case of different tooth morpho- logies, the ability to combine myTines Small with myTines Medium on the same Polydentia sectional ring pro- AD vides an improved matrix adaptation to the teeth and a fi rm grip, thus, re- ducing composite fl ashes and optimi s- ing stability. MyTines Large, instead, offers the ideal system when dealing with restorations of a wide cavity, even in the case of a missing cusp. MyJunior kit is the fi rst sectional matrix system for paediatric dentistry, and has been especially developed for smaller primary and young perma- nent teeth. The kit offers child-friendly solutions that help save valuable chair time and reduce the child patient’s distress. Two junior sectional matrix rings are included in the kit, myClip Junior and myRing Junior. These mini- mally invasive, safe-to-use, brightly co- loured paediatric rings combine stabi l- ity with the appropriate separation force, enabling dentists to achieve ideal contact surfaces. In addition, the extra grip provided by the fl exible extremities, myTines Junior and the rounded silicone tubes ensure better adaptation of the sectional matrices, hence, preventing annoying compos- ite fl ashes and overhangs. Unica anterior is a simple and ideal matrix for anterior restorations such as Class III, Class IV and Class V, direct stratifi cation composite ve- neers and shape modifications. Thanks to its contoured shape, Unica anterior adapts correctly to the dif- ferent morphologies of anterior teeth and makes it possible to restore pro- ximal and cervical margins at once, even in the presence of a rubber dam or gingival retraction cords, thus, re- ducing chair time signifi cantly. The placement wings allow fast and effi - cient matrix positioning. Further- more, Unica anterior, once positioned, allows the dentist to easily visualise the fi nal shape of the restoration, even before starting the procedure. Diamond24 are anatomically shaped silicone tubes designed to be used with Polydentia’s sectional matrix ring myRing Classico. Dia- mond24 can be oriented in 24 dif- ferent combinations of shape and length, ensuring optimal matrix re- tention and adaption to the tooth, even in the case of diffi cult clinical situations.

industry SHOW REVIEW An outstanding IDS 2019: A retrospective n For the 38th edition of IDS, the fa- mous Japanese architect Kengo Kuma created an entirely new booth design for GC. It was praised by many visitors, customers and members of the press, who took photographs of the booth and shared them on social media. There was a high turnout, and many people were interested in the latest innovations by GC. “There is an increased interest in complete solu- tions brought about by the high work pressure in contemporary labs and practices,” said Josef Richter, Chief Operating Offi cer and President of GC Europe AG. “GC accommodates these practitioners with its newest digital developments, integrated services and a complete portfolio of products that are complement each other, spar- ing practitioners effort in fi nding compatible products; everything that is needed can be found at the same place, with clear information and in- structions for even the most complex situations.” The Aadva Lab Scan 2 and the IOS 100P and IOS 200 intraoral scan- ners, for laboratory and intraoral use, respectively, attracted extra at- tention. The digital solutions will be further expanded in 2019 with new 3-D printers to be added to GC’s digi- tal portfolio. At IDS again, internationally re- nowned dentists and dental techni- cians shared their experiences with visitors at hands-on workshops and Speakers Corner. Contemporary topics, such as molar incisor hypomineralisa- tion, injection moulding techniques, high-strength lithium disilicate aes- thetic restorations and different luting alternatives, as well as tips and tricks in the collaboration between laborato- ries and dentists, were addressed. IDS is also a great place for net- working with peers. The busy chats during the breakfasts and happy hour at the booth created a festive at- mosphere. Shortly before IDS, the US International Trade Commission dis- missed the allegations of patent in- fringement fi led against us by one of our market companions and that be- came a hot conversational topic, with a lot of praise for Initial™ LiSi Press the pressable ceramic system.

Combining a soft polypro- pylene body with a unique lateral solution deli very, PD has designed a 30-gauge needle that can easily adapt to the canal anatomy, irri- gate effortlessly and clean areas once impos sible to reach. The re- sult is enhanced cleaning and ir- rigation for a more effi cient, com- fortable treatment compared with conventional metal needles. PD’s patented needle design encompasses two side vents posi- tioned back to back at the tip for powerful lateral irrigation and a tapered shape to match the root canal preparation, unlike metal needles. The 4 per cent tapered design maximises the shear stress along the root canal walls to im- prove mechanical cleaning effi - cacy. The IrriFlex needle safely per- forms powerful and complete irri- gation of the root canal to improve removal of residue, such as debris, smear layer and biofi lm, in areas impossible to reach with conven- tional metal needles. The needles are produced in a clean room certifi ed ISO 7 and deli- vered individually in sealed pouches designed for single-patient use, thus, maximising safety. With this new needle, PD sup- ports general dentists and special- ists in performing root canal irriga- tion more effi ciently, comfortably and safely. Comfort for you, too. The difference is in the details. The A-dec 500 chair is engineered for better dentistry. The pressure-mapped upholstery comforts the patient, while the thin graceful backrest optimizes ergonomics and brings you in close. Lasting innovation. True comfort. For you and your patient.

SHOW REVIEW industry The new generation of Lisa: Incredible inside. Incredible outside. the drying time to the mass of the load. This reduces the cycle time, increases the lifespan of the instruments and op- timises the energy consumption. That not only results in significant time-sav- ing in reprocessing, but also makes Lisa a “green solution” in everyday practice. The outstanding technology in- side the new Lisa was developed to meet the highest demands. Lisa offers new safety standards, new intelligence and a new user experience, owing to the crystal-clear colour touch display for intuitive navigation through the intelligent menu structure. In addition to these innovative features, the ste- riliser offers all known and proven Lisa functions, such as User Authen- tication, Remote Data Storage, shared LisaSafe (label printer), Programmable Start, 3-D maintenance animation, help buttons and Remote Monitoring thanks to the Lisa Mobile App. Visit wh.com for more information. 7 n With the new Lisa steriliser, W&H continues on its journey towards pro- viding even greater user comfort and safety. From the inside, the W&H ster- iliser offers a wealth of innovative technologies that go beyond the every- day user experience. Equipped with artificial intelligence, Lisa turns high- end type B sterilising into an efficient and safe work process. From the out- side, Lisa convinces with its perfect ergonomic design. Incredible experience With EliSense, the new Lisa pro- vides an unexpected user experience and the best performance. Its LED indicators and display offer informa- tion on cycle status, temperature and much more to optimise both work- flow and output. Additionally, now with new artificial intelligence, Lisa brings increased efficiency and con- trol. EliSense’s Smart Sense helps to shape and optimise the daily work routine. Thanks to this, Lisa con- tinues to learn use-by-use and makes suggestions for greater efficiency in the sterilisation process. It informs users about optimum steriliser usage and even reminds them when the next routine test should be per- formed, depending on local regula- tory requirements. In short, EliSense Smart Sense is a revo lutionary tech- nology which goes beyond everyday user experience. The new W&H steriliser provides clear information on cycle status de- livered by EliSense Status Sense. For the first time, a glance at the unit pro- vides all information needed. Small LEDs on the display indicate whether a cycle is in progress or finished, giving users a complete overview of the cycle status at all times. EliSense’s Temperature Sense serves to protect the practice team and is an important aspect of the new Lisa. Equipped with this fea- ture, the W&H steriliser will warn if the door is open while the load is still too hot to be touched. Lisa, thus, takes care of user well-being and of- fers greater safety during work pro- cesses. Incredible traceability A high standard of hygiene is the hallmark of every dental practice. With the new generation of Lisa, this standard is now becoming even more stringent. EliTrace is the new enhanced Lisa documentation sys- tem and for the first time offers full traceability down to the single instru- ment or set without any extra soft- ware or computers. The result is a high level of safety for practices and their patients.

industry even with this crowding and then explain to the patient that if he or she doesn’t want the dentist to prep this tooth then he or she needs to un- dergo an orthodontic treatment. The possibility of having this visual infor- mation and communicating with the patient enables you to achieve superb outcomes. Koubi: We need to have a very clear vision regarding the digital technologies because it is a reality al- ready. In order to be good with digital technologies, you need to be a skilful driver and manager of the whole pro- cess because, as we have already mentioned, digital technology serves you as a tool. But you and your lab technician need to be well educated. That’s the basis of your teamwork. Sometimes, people are confused be- cause they believe digital technolo- gies will provide them with all of the clinical solutions, but that’s not true. It only supports us in our work; it speeds it up and improves its quality. We use artificial intelligence to sim- plify our life, but not to replace the human with his or her mind and knowledge. Kuday: I would like to talk through it from a human perspective. If we retain the human factor in the technology, then everything will be alright. Nowadays, we are talking about self-driving cars replacing driv- ers. Sooner or later, it is going to hap- pen. But if we would like to do some- thing as a team, we need to integrate the human factor to control the whole process. From an ethical point of view, human touch is mandatory during the digital workflow. The ope- rator needs to be either the dental technician or the dentist, not the en- gineer. The human, not the techno- logy, has to be the creator and leader. The new digital technologies are de- veloping very, very rapidly. For exam- ple, if you buy an iPad today, tomor- row it will be out of date. This is dic- tated by today’s economic situation. Do we need major reforms in den- tistry? If so, what might those be with regard to digital technology? Koubi: We need many reforms in dentistry. I will speak also on behalf of my friends and colleagues. In France, two types of dentistry have been established for years: mass den- tistry and elite, boutique dentistry. Digital dentistry is very useful for mass dentistry because it makes aes- thetic treatment faster and more af- fordable, but we have to keep in mind that we work in the medical field, not in economics, for example, and we are treating patients. We have to take responsibility for all our actions. Di- gital technologies will improve the average quality of our work, but will never be better than an exceptionally good dentist. It is the same in other medical fields: surgical robots per- form better than an average surgeon, but robots will never be more skilled than an experienced and well-trained surgeon. Most dentists cut too much tooth structure. If you examined 1,000 impressions, you would see that most teeth are over-prepped. Thus, the risk of complications rises. Thanks to robots, we can standardise quality. Is it the best quality? No, it is not, but that’s not the purpose. So it needs to be clear that digital den- tistry is certainly our future, but I don’t believe everything will become digital. We need to implement also the human touch in order to exploit all advantages that digital technolo- gies provide, but at the same time to avoid their weaknesses. What does the future hold for den- tistry in your opinion? How do you see the dental world in 20 years? Koubi: Our future is digital for sure! We will have less useless stuff; the impression trays and impression materials will be forgotten. Every- thing in the dental office will be clean, white and clear as it is now in our clinic. My wish and hope for the future is that dental students will receive better training and be better prepared for the digital workflow. The digital process needs to be better integrated into university curricula. Universities all over the world have to make a significant shift and to im- plement digital education in every dental specialty so that students graduate already prepared to work with digital technologies because nowadays they have to learn how to do it after graduation by attending additional courses and lectures. Edu- cation, not only university education but also continuing education, will become more and more relevant and it will be key to success. Gurel: My short-term project is to see our robot DIGICUTO working. Five years ago, nobody believed that the iPhone would be so small and able to multitask so quickly. Now, it is a reality: your phone, your computer, your camera, everything is becoming even smarter. Our idea has already been born. When we will realise it depends on two things: technical is- sues, which in my opinion will be solved soon, and patient acceptance— people usually ask me not how it will be done technically, but how patients will allow a robot to prep their teeth instead of a dentist. In the near fu- ture, cars will be driven without driv- ers by artificial intelligence. Our con- cept is the same; it is even safer. I think the near future will look like that. I hope, as Stefan said, that dig- ital technology will enable us to offer even more affordable treatment plans. I hope that new 3-D printable materials like ceramics will speed up treatment and once again make it cheaper so that more people world- wide will have access to high-quality dental care instead of what they are getting now. Everybody deserves to be treated in a precise and predict- able manner. Kuday: Regarding future deve l- opment, I think “affordable” is de- finitely the key word. Everybody de- serves to have unique restorations, not only wealthy people. I would like to emphasise that, if the quality of 3-D printed restorations is high enough, then I will accept it. What do you think the role of leading brands will be in the future? Gurel: We are all professionals with many years of experience, work- ing with big companies. In my opi- nion, the companies should not sell materials only, but should sell com- plete storylines, and by that, I mean things connected with each other, so that if somebody starts working with some system he or she should not even think about leaving it. Just like Apple. Once you buy an iPhone , then you buy an iPad, then a MacBook Pro, so you always stay in the family. Why? Because they are very nicely connected with one another. Many people nowadays are afraid of the word “digital”. They are concerned that they don’t have advanced com- puter skills, and don’t know how to use the software or how to shape the teeth digitally. Working in a digital workflow doesn’t require all of this. A digital protocol should be very user- friendly and intuitive so that once you start using it, you will feel the urge to dive even deeper into it and to also try a scanner, for example. And if it is easy to work with, then you won’t even think about buying a device from another company. If you follow the Ivoclar storyline and you are satisfied with all of its products, then you won’t buy another brand’s porcelain blocks, for example, be- cause you are sure that quality of the end result is guaranteed only if you stay in the family. And if the brand you are satisfied with also offers you a robot to prep the teeth, it will com- plete the whole storyline and you won’t look for different solutions. Getting a milling machine from one company, porcelain from another and a scanner from a third will create a higher risk of mistakes and com- plications, so adopting one brand is more convenient for everybody. Koubi: Dentists want to buy so- lutions, not ingredients. If you go to an Italian restaurant, you order a whole plate, not the pasta itself, and you are sure that it will be cooked al dente. It is similar to some of the brands on the market: they stress the qualities of some ingredients, some materials, but customers are looking for integrated solutions. This is im- portant for producers to keep in mind and for them to develop and improve their sale strategy according to it. Kuday: At the beginning of the congress, Ivoclar Vivadent launched IvoSmile, an application for smile de- sign that gives you the final outcome after aesthetic rehabilitation of the smile. Anybody can download it from Ivoclar Vivadent’s website; even pa- tients can download it and give it a try. This means companies are think- ing ahead and they are already trying to establish and improve the connec- tion with each other. SHOW REVIEW Gurel: When a company delivers a product to patients or to dentists, it should be connected in a clear work- flow. If the patient sees the smile design and approves it, the dentist shouldn’t have any fear or uncer- tainty regarding how to achieve it. In my opinion, dentists won’t even try it because they might be afraid of how to proceed, how to create such a smile design. That is the reason why I am saying we should have a well- established workflow and every new product launched on the market needs to be connected with the rest. When a patient wants a particular smile design, the dentist needs to be certain which 3-D design programme to use. I believe defining a very clear treatment process lies in the near future of companies. Thank you very much for this inter- esting conversation! It has been a pleasure having all three of you! 7 Acknowledgement This conversation was held with the kind support of Ivoclar Vivadent, who provided its lecture room for the speakers to comfortably sit and chat after their lecture at the Competence in Esthetics congress in Belgrade.

industry Hydroxyapatite toothpaste from SANGI arrives in Germany From outer space to your mouth. with a microcrystalline form of the active ingre- dient especially for the European market, while in Japan, the mHAP par- ticle size has been re- duced to the nano range since 2003. The original tooth enamel remineralis- ing toothpaste APADENT with protection against dental caries and perio- dontitis will be available in three va riants in Ger- many: APADENT Total Care, APADENT Sensi- tive and APADENT Kids. The APAGARD product line, which is particu- larly popular in Japan, is based on SANGI’s mHAP and helps to re- store the shine and den- sity of enamel in three va- riants. APAGARD M-plus, in a convenient family size, offers a balanced mi. of all of the product benefits. APAGARD SMOKIN’ is particularly effective for the pre- vention of stains caused by ciga- rettes, coffee and wine. Finally, the company’s most popular product in Japan, APAGARD PREMIO, com- pletes the range with a higher mHAP concentration. Traditional Japanese company SANGI, based in Tokyo, has now launched its hydro.yapatite tooth- pastes in Germany. At IDS, SANGI provided evidence-based informa- tion about the use and scientiﬁ c background of its products at a press conference titled “The original from Japan: Space-inspired toothpaste with hydro.yapatite for reminerali- sation”. SANGI Chairman and founder Shuji Sakuma began with insight into the company’s history. Starting out as a small commercial enterprise, SANGI acquired a NASA patent for reminera- lising bones and teeth. This eventually led to the idea of using the mineral hydro.yapatite. In 1980, SANGI laun- ched the world’s ﬁ rst toothpaste con- taining hydro.yapatite as an agent for remineralising teeth: APADENT. A second product line, APAGARD, followed ﬁ ve years later. SANGI’s special form of hydro.y- apatite (medical hydro.yapatite—mHAP) was ofﬁ cially recognised as an anti- caries drug 15 years later by the Ja- panese government. The effect was proven in several studies. SANGI products, including those manufac- tured for other companies, are very popular in Japan and they have a mar- ket share of 7 per cent in oral care. In the top-end segment, APAGARD actually holds a share of 50 per cent. APAGARD PREMIO was the ﬁ rst toothpaste to be awarded Hall of Fame status by @cosme—Japan’s number one consumer beauty pro d- uct reviewer—as it was the most re- commended toothpaste for three con- secutive years, from 2015 to 2017. Owing to this popularity, SANGI e.e- cutives decided in 2011 to e.port the products to Russia, Canada, Eastern Europe and some Asian countries. Since the end of 2017, the company has been preparing to e.port its pro d- ucts to Western European countries too through SANGI Europe, which es- tablished it in Germany. After this brief introduction, den- tal hygienist Izumi Hashizume pre- sented several studies and microscopy images to demonstrate how SANGI’s mHAP works. The mHAP reminera- lises the enamel on and below the sur- face and adsorbs harmful bacteria such as Streptococcus mutans more effectively than other calcium phos- phates do. By coating e.posed den- tinal tubules, this active ingredient also protects against hypersensitivity and helps restore the shine and colour of the natural tooth structure. The product lines for the German market launch are APADENT and APAGARD. SANGI produces EU- compliant versions of these products REGISTER FOR FREE! DT Study Club – e-learning platform SHOW REVIEW MEDIA AG Oversees Relations Manager Dominik Demel moderates the SANGI press conference at IDS as Shuji Sakuma, the Founder of SANGI, looks on. Jochen Freibert, who is respon- sible for market development and regulatory affairs at SANGI Europe, e.plained that the company was pur- suing a fairly conservative marketing approach in Germany. The products are being distributed e.clusively through pharmacies and dental cli n- ics through the two wholesalers Sanacorp and Hageda-Stumpf. The company has chosen not to advertise and is putting more emphasis on product samples, broad public rela- tions work, a wide range of infor- mation in the form of studies, e.pla- nations of hydro.yapatite and re- commendations.
