Ori Intraoral Scanner from Ori Dental

Ori Intraoral Scanner

Ori Intraoral Scanner

Ori Dental’s new Ori Intraoral Scanner has a variety of different features to appeal to dental professionals looking to expand their scanning capabilities at an affordable rate. It is designed to guarantee higher accuracy, differentiating between soft and hard tissue, and is said to be the only dental scanner made in the United States. Described as a modern alternative to traditional dental impressions that delivers a faster, easier, and more accurate solution, the scanner provides a better patient experience overall. It is constructed with aerospace-grade aluminum, and touts high strength and longevity. With an open software system, dental professionals can send their scans to their preferred laboratory, and these can be made with the product’s less-than-5-minute scan time.

Why you may want to consider this scanner

The scanner has no operating fee, allowing clinicians to eliminate the concern over adding monthly fees. The foundation of the scanner as well as the mission behind it is to focus on a portable, affordable intraoral scanner for service dentistry. Additionally, the lightweight, comfortable scanner is said to eliminate hand, arm, and shoulder fatigue in dental professionals.

Magnet-X from Panthera Dental

Described as the world’s first removable magnetic implant bar, the Magnet-X provides permanent stable magnetic retention that maintains the denture in place.

Magnet-XTM

Described as the world’s first removable magnetic implant bar, the Magnet-X provides permanent stable magnetic retention that maintains the denture in place. Part of the company’s Integrated Bar™ product line, the Magnet-X is a removable Wrap-Around bar that offers a new solution for All-on-X patients. It was developed with technical advice from Miles Reed Cone, DMD, and is a first in that it responds to geriatric patients’ needs. The magnetic forces guide the denture to the correct position and keep it in place. The magnets self-align the bar into the correct position autonomously and the patient does not need to find the right position or chew to get the denture into place. The magnetic male and female parts provide a durable solution and constant retention, with no need to replace worn out parts.

Why this implant bar is unique

Thanks to the custom abutments that are included, the bar offers divergent implant flexibility with up to 30° correction. These abutments lie straight on implants, so additional multiunits are not needed. In addition to the magnetic advantages, Magnet-X offers the same benefits as the Nylon™ Integrated Bar: It is perpendicular to the occlusal plane, compatible with over 200 implant platforms, and provides the same ease of handling and hygienic advantages as a removable prosthesis.

Elvatome® 2.0 from TBS Dental

the Elvatome 2.0 surgical instrument features the company’s new TWIST handle for optimal ergonomics

[Surgical Instrument]

Editor's Choice: Elvatomes were created to help displace the tooth out of the socket. Rather than pulling the root, the goal is to occupy the space between the tooth and bone (periodontal ligament) pushing the tooth out of its socket.

Elvatome® 2.0

Designed to provide significantly improved access for simple to complex extractions while providing comfortable grip and ease of access to any shaped root, the Elvatome 2.0 surgical instrument features the company’s new TWIST handle for optimal ergonomics. The 2.0 is thicker than the original Elvatome so it’s said to reduce clinician fatigue and increase rigidity when working in interproximal areas. The TWIST handle guides clinicians to make a recommended “push and twist” motion. The clinician can easily obtain a purchase point with a penlike grip fashion and convert to a palm grip providing additional apical pressure along the long axis of the tooth. By positioning the instrument along the long axis of the root, the clinician can apply pressure with their palm with the index figure resting closer to the tip.
