This next-generation bonding agent focuses on providing optimal performance on the surfaces dentists use bonding agents on the most—enamel and dentin. This single-bottle system provides stronger adhesion and higher bond strengths than the leading competitor, so users can feel more confident in their ability to deliver restorations that can withstand the test of time with no postoperative sensitivity. One key differentiator with this system is the introduction of the simplified touch application technique, which is an alternative to the scrubbing step needed when applying many other bonding agents to the prep surface. Dentists just need to dip the head of the chemically treated activator brush into the Brush&Bond MAX liquid and simply touch it to the prep surface, going back and forth to pick up more liquid until the entire prep surface is moist.
What else makes this bonding agent special?
Brush&Bond MAX also treats dentin hypersensitivity and seals crown preps with a durable surface coat during temporization. Because of its low film thickness, it is imperceptible in x-rays and won’t interfere with the seating of lab-fabricated restorations when used in conjunction with resin-based adhesive cements.
[ Pediatric Flowable Composite ]
Editor’s Choice: This new flowable eliminates the need for the technique-sensitive bonding procedure for pediatric patients.
Beautifil Kids SA
Shofu has a new pediatric self-adhesive flowable composite, Beautifil Kids SA, which was introduced at the Chicago Dental Society 2022 Midwinter Meeting. It is said to be a BPA-free, self-adhesive, nano-hybrid flowable restorative with bioactive Giomer technology. Notable features include high bond strength, precision placement, and well-blended light transmission and diffusion properties. All of these combine to provide certain benefits for pediatric composite cases, such as antibacterial effects, acid neutralization, and fluoride release and recharge. Beautifil Kids SA is indicated for preventive resin restoration, small Class I, and other nonload-bearing restorations. It will be available in 2 shades, Primary (B1) and Permanent (A2), and will come in 2.2-g syringes.

Health care communications app vTail has announced its expansion into the dental market.

The app is free, Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act–enabled, and is said to be safe for clinicians wishing to keep their data secure.
