Featuring the world’s first-ever bioactive universal and self-etch adhesives, RE-GEN is a suite of bioactive materials comprised of a flowable composite, bulk fill and resin cement, and pit & fissure sealant. By employing Bioglass as an active ingredient, this is said to resolve all the uncertainty surrounding previous generations of bioactive materials. Bioglass is backed by 50+ years of medical use and is supported by scientific research, along with countless clinical studies, according to the manufacturer. Bioglass has been proven to form a hydroxyapatite-like surface layer after being in contact with tooth and biological fluids, thus promoting a regenerative process and a stable, long-term restoration. The unique blend of ingredients in the RE-GEN family of products provides a restoration that is osteogenic, antimicrobial, biocompatible, and BPA Free.

Why this suite of materials stands out:

The cornerstones of the RE-GEN suite are the bioactive adhesives. Current bioactive materials are limited in their ability to provide the functional ions to the compromised tooth because the tooth has been sealed with an adhesive.

Apex Dental Materials

Form 3B

Described as incredibly accurate, the Form 3B 3D printer consistently produces crisp and precise parts from more than 10 materials. The new printer is designed to work with the next generation of dental materials and is backed by a dental-dedicated service team, and powerful software to help streamline workflows. Resins can be swapped with a simple cartridge system, and the 3B printer can be used to produce crown and bridge models, clear aligner models, diagnostic models, surgical guides, occlusal splints, wax patterns for casting and pressing, and digital dentures with a selection of 4 base shades and 6 tooth shades. Additional materials from 3rd parties are available for the printer through the Formlabs Materials Partner Platform that ensures proper printing with these materials on the new 3B printer.

Why this 3D printer is different:

Along with launching its latest printer, Formlabs also launched a dedicated dental division with a team of specialists in dental 3D printing. The printer is backed by a new Dental Service Plan that puts the expertise of the company’s dedicated dental team to work for dental practices and laboratories using its printers.

Each system includes hygiene-specific training, turnkey practice guidebooks with step-by-step practice integration tips, and access to exclusive on-call Epic Expert support, with leading clinicians to provide peer to peer support.

Why this dental laser is unique:

With more and more states in the U.S. allowing hygienists to treat patients with lasers, this new laser is designed specifically for the hygiene department and is portable and affordable to make it easier to utilize the technology.



[Scan Software]

Scan Clarity Score

Dental laboratories can often feel frustrated due to the lack of quality scans sent to them for restoration fabrication. Pearl’s Scan Clarity Score allows dental labs to score and bucket each patient scan based on margin clarity. If the scan is of high quality, the margin is automatically marked and sent on for crown design. If the margin clarity score is low, it’s flagged for human intervention and/or for a call to be placed by the dentist. By systemically processing the quality of margins, dental labs, dentists, and most importantly, patients benefit from higher quality dental restorations.

Its thin film thickness is designed to make it easier to seat restorations without the hassle of occlusal adjustments related to cement layer that’s too thick. It is said to be easy to use with fast clean up, superior marginal adhesion, virtually no post-op sensitivity, and can increase time for dentists and patients alike.

[Restorative Template]

Uveneer Extra Template System

The Uveneer Extra Template System from Ultradent offers more natural restorations with four new upper anterior designs-Extra Large, Large, Medium, and Square templates complementing the original Uveneer system. These templates work with any preferred composite to create reproducible composite veneers with predictable shape and symmetry. The templates prevent the oxygen inhibition layer from forming during the curing process, resulting in hard, glossy surfaces-while also allowing light to pass through to the composite for effective curing. The templates themselves are designed to be autoclavable.
