October 18, 2018

Henry Schein will distribute Sprig’s portfolio of products to help its customers place crowns that look and function just like natural teeth.

Henry Schein, Inc. recently announced that it has entered into a new exclusive distribution agreement with Sprig Oral Health Technologies Inc., a leading technology and clinical education company offering innovative products and solutions for pediatric dentistry.  

Henry Schein will distribute Sprig’s portfolio of products to help its customers place crowns that look and function just like natural teeth, giving younger patients more confidence in their smile.

Using nontoxic, biologic ingredients that create esthetically-appealing and durable crowns, helping to mitigate the risk of chipping or staining, Sprig products include: EZPrep, a bur system specifically designed for fast and accurate Zirconia crown preparation; EZCrown, an esthetically-pleasing, biocompatible pediatric dental crown that's designed to create long-lasting mechanical bonds, helping to ensure long lifespan; HemeRx, a retraction pellet solution that can reportedly effectively stop the flow of blood before a crown is inserted and help prevent an unpleasant taste in patients’ mouths, which is typically attributed to alternative materials comprised of ferric sulfate or aluminum chloride; and SmartMTA Mineral Trioxide Aggregate, a nontoxic bioceramic that's engineered to set in two-and-a-half minutes when compared with other materials that can take hours to set, helping to improve efficiency in the practice and giving practitioners more time to see other patients.

“Our relationship with Sprig offers Henry Schein a unique opportunity to deliver innovative solutions customers can use to change the way they perform pediatric restorative procedures,” says John Boresi, vice president, global dental merchandising, Dental Exclusives. “The exclusive distribution agreement reinforces our commitment to helping dentists increase practice efficiency so they can focus on delivering quality patient care.”

For children who need crowns to restore chipped or severely damaged teeth, pediatric dentists have the difficult task of restoring anterior teeth that are small in size and close to the pulp, with thin enamel and less surface area to bond. Sprig’s innovative technology reportedly helps solve the difficulties of performing restorative procedures among children.

“Since Sprig’s invention over a decade ago, we have continued to find better ways to apply technology to teeth and distinguish ourselves as leaders in the industry,” says Brenda Hansen, CEO, Sprig Oral Health Technologies. “We are excited to partner with Henry Schein to bring our innovative solutions to pediatric dentistry, and ultimately provide children with a better experience at the dentist, and a better future.”
