3M Filtek Matrix

3M Filtek Matrix

Dental composites can be a great choice to restore or improve the esthetics of a patient’s smile, but the traditional process can be long and complicated. The Filtek Matrix procedure begins with a digital restoration design. A patient-specific matrix is created that helps the clinician transfer the digital design to the patient’s teeth using 3M dental composites. Unlike more invasive ceramic procedures, which often require the removal of tooth structure, the Filtek Matrix relies on additive composite techniques, where little to no tooth reduction is required.

Speaker: Adam Hodges, DMD

"This looks like something you can do because you can see the basic shape of the teeth, now you just have to clean it up."

"It does allow for some variability and you'll find the way that works best for you."

"Curing through the matrix is not a problem."

Infinity VUE Loupes

Designs for Vision Infinity Vue Loupes

The Infinity VUE Loupes are designed to provide a straightforward approach to ergonomics and are available in 3.0× and 3.5× magnification, with a 4.5× magnification option said to be coming later this year. Infinity VUE (Vision up Ergonomics) is said to keep practitioners’ chins up, necks straight, and eyes forward while viewing the oral cavity. Musculoskeletal issues plague clinicians, mainly due to bending over patients to gain access to the oral cavity. It may be even more physically demanding with a myriad of aerosol reduction devices in use, causing clinicians to move into a less desirable location in the operative area. The Infinity VUE Loupes are said to be the first solution by allowing clinicians to keep their heads, backs, and shoulders in a totally upright position. By changing the positioning of the internal prisms, these loupes allow you to see intraorally without having to bend your neck. Mounted on a Steam frame and with the side shields attached, the VUE Loupes weigh 3.2 oz.

Speaker: Irene Iancu, BSc, RDH, CTDP, OM

"[When this hygienist started wearing Infinity Vue Loupes she] was identifying caries better, she was looking at calculus differently. It changed the way she practiced."

"Loupes should be a representation of who you are."

"The first day I put on those pink loupes, I instantly felt more confident."

Additionally, its multislice capability allows easy navigation through 41 panoramic slices, enabling precise visualization of desired structures. The reconstruction algorithms provide exceptional sharpness and contrast in every scan, according to PreXion. Adding the CEPH arm to the system boosts the PreXion Evolve’s diagnostic potential for cephalometric exams. Its specialized CEPH sensor is said to create high-quality images of hard and soft tissue with equal excellence. Collimation mechanisms and rapid scanning techniques minimize x-ray exposure. The software features an innovative function that delivers a final image with greater detail and definition, especially in the region of incisors and canines, TMJ, and root canals. Add in the combination of algorithms, and it allows the reconstruction of an optimized panoramic image. The technology is designed to bring powerful diagnostic quality to the most challenging cases.

Speaker: Marty Jablow, DMD

“That’s the information you get from the cone beam that you’re not going to get from a 2D radiography.”

“It allows you to do things right then and there. Patients are impressed with it. You get a ‘yes’ instead of a ‘no’.”

“Lower radiation and extremely good image quality. Everything comes back to image quality…The better the image, the lower the dose, the better it is for the patient.”

Practice experience platform Weave has unveiled a new addition to its software suite––Practice Analytics. This innovative feature promises to revolutionize the way dental practices operate by providing them with the tools to gain valuable insights and make data-driven decisions, ultimately enhancing patient care and fostering business growth, according to a press release from Weave. Practice Analytics aims to be a game-change for practices utilizing Dentrix, Open Dental, and Eaglesoft practice management software. It expands on Weave's existing capabilities in Message Analytics and Phone Analytics, offering dental professionals a comprehensive set of performance metrics in real time.

Armed with this information, dental practices can create focus areas to improve on and streamline everyday operations. This powerful analytics tool empowers dental practices to track missed opportunities related to patient care, patient volumes, revenue, and resource utilization. It also helps them identify untapped growth opportunities that might have otherwise gone unnoticed. Weave's commitment to user-friendliness ensures that any staff member can navigate and interpret the data, according to the press release.

Stela from SDI. Image credit: © SDI

Developed in partnership between SDI and the University of New South Wales, the University of Sydney, and the University of Wollongong, Stela is a new self-cure composite said to be well suited for Class I, II, III, and V restorations.

The composite system includes Stela Primer which provides the catalyst to initiate the polymerization process at the restoration interface rather than at the occlusal surface as is the case when polymerization is initiated with a curing light. According to a press release, Stela's polymerization sequence reduces stress to reportedly reduce the risks of marginal gaps, postoperative sensitivity, and restoration failure.

Stela polymerizes with a snap set process that converts monomers into a complex network of cross-linked polymer chains. This reportedly binds the fillers to provide the material with high compressive and flexural strengths.

Stela is available in a single shade with chameleon capabilities to blend in with surrounding dentition. The composite contains fluoride, calcium, and strontium, and is free of BPAs and HEMA.

The composite is placed in a two-step process with the primer placed first, followed by the restorative material. It reportedly can be placed in as little as 15 seconds because it eliminates much of the traditional composite workflow of etch, prime, bond, and light cure.

The Stela composite material and Stela Primer both contain the 10-MDP monomer which has been shown to enhance bond strengths to dentin and enamel. Additionally, it is highly radiopaque and available in either syringe or capsule delivery.

The Hawkeye Probe. Image credit: © Paradise Dental Technologies

The 12 AOD Hawkeye prove provides an innovative angled offset to allow easier access to the periodontal sulcus AND easier reading for the clinician, specifically for posterior teeth.

Much like the curved 11/12 explorer, the 12 AOD Hawkeye can reach around bulbous enamel areas to more accurately record periodontal numbers due to its 28 degree offset. This means the instrument is double-ended right-left so the end that is used on the upper right buccals is used on the upper left linguals, and so on.

It is marked with the common 3-6-9-12 mm pattern on both ends and is made with a superior grade of thin surgical metal for ease of access and durability.

This proprietary medical grade treated stainless steel is like no other, and when paired with the resin handle results in a diagnostic instrument that is very light in the hand, weighing only 9.5 grams.

Speaker: Emily Boge, EdD, RDH, CDA, FAADH, FADHA

“These probes provide a higher level of diagnostics. They’re skinny, durable and more comfortable.”

"The Gleason Guide Sharpening System is what our students have used for sharpening for years and it’s been very successful.”

"It’s a full mouth probe but allows access to specific areas. It records more accurate periodontal numbers.”

This universal composite is designed for every shade and every class. OMNICHROMA is the world’s first universal composite that esthetically matches every patient’s shade, from A1 to D4, with a single shade. Its uniformly sized supra-nano spherical fillers (260 nm spherical SiO2-ZrO2) are the exact size and shape needed to generate red-to-yellow color as ambient light passes through the composite. There is no need to add pigments or dyes. The red-to-yellow color generated by the spherical fillers combines with the reflected color of the patient’s surrounding dentition, creating the perfect match using Smart Chromatic Technology. Its wide color-matching ability eliminates the shade-taking procedure, reducing composite inventory and saving clinicians time and money.

Speaker:

Robert Rosenfeld, DDS

"The ultimate goal is to create a single material that can not only mimic the appearance of translucent enamel layered upon more opaque dentin, but for that single material to also be able to match all shades of human teeth."

"With a single-shade composite, you get reduced inventory, reduced time spent selecting shades, and reduced difficult matching "hard to match" shades."

Candid’s CandidPro clear aligners now support mixed dentition, enabling clinicians to better treat a variety of different patients, according to a press release from Candid. Candid has especially affirmed its support for doctors that specialize in airway health, with younger patients now receiving the benefit of clear aligner therapy in conjunction with airway therapies. CandidPro built this new mixed dentition support with the assistance and collaboration of Philips Sonicare and utilized upgraded support for interproximal reduction. Adding on to that were attachments announced earlier in 2023, and this mixed dentition support became possible. Early airway therapy for young patients can help patients get ahead of potential issues later down the line, and Candid aims to go even bigger for 2024 and the years to follow.

Speaker: Ben Miraglia, DDS

"75% of patients could benefit from clear aligner therapy."

"The patient benefits from a reduced time commitment and a 'progress morph' on the app which drives compliance."

With a free account, practices can create posts for new temp shifts, search for professionals in their area, and communicate with candidates directly. onDiem eliminates staffing compliance burdens by offering prevetted employees, who are covered by malpractice and workers’ comp insurance. Its national footprint makes onDiem an ideal choice for single source staffing across multiple states. onDiem distinguishes itself from other staffing platforms by offering employees rather than contractors for temporary shifts. Not only does this solve the complex challenge of employee misclassification, it also allows dental professionals to take advantage of healthcare benefits, employer-paid taxes, and insurance coverage, without sacrificing scheduling and rate flexibility. This platform brings gig economy convenience to dental personnel and staffing challenges and helps dental professionals take charge of their career choices with a solid foundation.

Speaker: Crystal Spring, RDH, BS, LAP

"Health care providers deserve health insurance. That is something as an employee that you deserve."

"We're in an age where we have a lot of gig workers. These employees are being miscategorized and not getting the benefits they deserve."

"Ever since COVID, everyone in this room can acknowledge that we have staffing issues. Managing staffing issues is not an easy job."

"The regulations are clear, and the industry is catching on."

"Let's get back to your goals...and back to staffing as a value, not a liability."

Developed by the oral maxillofacial surgeon with over 40 years of experience, the Urbanek Device and Protocol is the only non-surgical, custom CAD-CAM, 3D-printed resin device that alleviates the inflammation of the TMD joint. Unlike a nightguard, this FDA-cleared medical device was specifically designed to treat the root cause of TMD. The device, customized to each patient, unloads the joint just like a set of crutches unloads an inflamed knee, the company says. The patient starts by wearing the device 24/7 for 2 months, and then at nighttime only for the rest of their life. That works for about 85% of the patients, reportedly, and the company has completed 4000 patient cases with a success rate of 95%, which indicates what can happen if they follow the protocol. Results have been successful with patients in as few as 2 office visits, the company states.

Speaker: Anthony P Urbanek, DDS, MS, MD

"TMD is a disparate array of confusing symptoms."

"All the known causes of TMD create inflammation within the TMJ."

"Some accepted causes of TMD include Bruxism, acute trauma, and functional malocclusion."

Designed to drive dental practice productivity and increase case acceptance, OraQ is a software solution that leverages artificial intelligence technology to help drive practice success. The software helps clinicians take a holistic approach to patient assessments. OraQ analyzes patient records, including medical and dental histories, ahead of appointments to prepare team members, then guides the new patient and recall appointment processes to provide consistency, and customizes its risk and recommendation to highlight the individual needs of each patient. The OraQ patient portal helps put patients in control of their oral wellness. It provides them with a dashboard of exam findings and clinician recommendations, and it simplifies medical jargon to increase their understanding of their oral health to promote well-informed decisions.

Speaker: Amreesh Khanna, DDS, BMedSc., GPR Cert, FICOI

"It's hard to not get distracted and we often think we need to see treatment as separate from the whole big picture."

"By letting you focus on what the patient has rather than what the patient needs done, that leads to creating value for treatment acceptance."

Featured Product:

Dentrix Detect AI from Henry Schein One

Dentrix Detect AI®

Combining Henry Schein One’s Dentrix platform and VideaHealth’s AI technology, Dentrix Detect AI is an AI-enabled x-ray analysis tool that provides real-time clinical decision support to dentists. Its full integration into Dentrix allows it to work within existing Dentrix workflows and eliminates the need for dentists to import or export images to utilize AI analysis. Each image is automatically analyzed in the software, helping dentists evaluate images more quickly. As a result, dentists can provide greater transparency to patients by making treatment recommendations chairside, which helps to improve case acceptance.

Speaker: Adam McDaniel

"It's helping provide you with more information to improve your patient care."

"AI really keeps everybody on the same page and focused on the things you want the patient paying attention to."

"[With Dentrix Detect AI] it's not a separate system or a separate software. This is your imaging software, this is not AI software by itself."

"Treatment plan acceptance increases through the use of AI."

Edward Goldin, DDS speaking about Ditron Dental USA implant solutions at the DPR Product Solutions Center during the 2023 Greater New York Dental Meeting.

Featured Product:

MPI™ and ULT™ Molecular Precision Implants

MPI™ Molecular Precision Implants

Designed to provide both high initial implant stability and a long-term anchor, the MPI implants feature a unique spherical helix chamber design that is said to capture blood and bone fragments to assist osseointegration. A beveled collar shifts the dental implant-abutment junction inward, allowing for platform switching. Additionally, the Moleculock™ biomechanical implant-abutment seal design makes the gaps too small for bacterial penetration which may reduce the risks of peri-implantitis. The ULT implants offer many of the same advantages along with a patented Reverse Concave Neck (RCN) with micro-threads that resist axial load. Both implant lines feature a familiar internal hex connection. With 50 years of experience in precision machining for high-end aerospace, aeronautical, automotive, and medical device companies, Ditron Dental is capable of producing parts at single micron level accuracies. The company’s quality assurance programs test products in numerous ways with a goal of ensuring zero defects per million parts, and then the products are mechanically washed, disinfected, and finally packaged in an ISO 14644-1 “Class 7” compliant clean room that has particle counts of less than 1 per million/m3.

Speaker: Edward Goldin, DDS

"This is based on a lot of research."

"The abutment-implant interface is a place where bacteria can gather and damage the crestal bone."

"The fact that all these components fit so well is what gives us these great results."

"That's how we improve dentistry. We have to think about the problem and figure out the solution."
