What not to miss in Chicago this year, Part 1
Part one of DPR's 2017 innovation roundup from the Windy City.
The Plus (+) Series extraction forceps by A. Titan are said to be the next advancement of exodontia instruments necessary to perform atraumatic extraction, using minimally invasive techniques. Made in Germany using advanced manufacturing technology, the Plus (+) Series forceps have beak designs and an ergonomic handle for improved tactile feel and control. Designed to have a distinct mechanical advantage, the beak designs with internal serrations reportedly are able to contact significantly more tooth structure to minimize fracture and transmit disruptive extraction forces to the periodontal attachment apparatus.

ACTEON North America
ACTEON North America announced the X-Mind® Trium 3D CBCT device that facilitates osseointegration with instant volume measurement and bone density assessment. The X-Mind Trium reportedly provides exceptional image quality with 75 μm voxel resolution for a variety of applications such as dental implant planning and endodontic diagnoses. The wide range field of view (110x80, 80x80, 60x60, and 40x40) is designed to make it possible to focus on the region of interest based on the diagnosis. The X-Mind Trium works with the ACTEON Imaging Suite, which can assess volume and bone density for improved bone grafting procedures and implant placement while all scans are produced in STL format for export into surgical guide design software. The software also has a virtual endoscope feature for airway evaluation and nerve canal tracing for implant planning. The X-Mind Trium is fully upgradable from a 2D panoramic X-Ray to 3D, and a Cephalometric arm can also be added so the device can grow as your practice grows. The X-Mind Trium will be introduced by ACTEON North America at the Chicago Mid Winter Dental Meeting from February 23-25, 2017 in booth 3011. See more at: acteongroup.com
