[Pericardium Membrane]

OSSIX Agile

OSSIX AgileTM is an innovative pericardium-based membrane powered by the GLYMATRIX® technology, which is scientifically proven to assure a long-lasting barrier effect and predictable results. OSSIX Agile is made from decellularized porcine pericardium (collagen type I and III) and powered by GLYMATRIX technology to provide a strong, easy-to-handle, and biocompatible solution for guided bone regeneration (GBR) and guided bone regeneration (GTR) procedures.
The membrane is designed to deliver a lasting barrier with greater resistance to degradation.GLYMATRIX technology mimics the natural collagen cycle in the body, a natural biochemical. A key stage of the technology utilizes naturally occurring nontoxic sugar to cross-link collagen molecules, facilitating the longevity and the resistance to exposure that characterize OSSIX® regenerative solutions.
The membrane is designed for easy handling—it conforms well to tissue, defect, or graft; can be applied on both sides of the membrane; the tissue membrane features convenient handling compatible with a range of fixation methods, using sutures, screws, or tacks; has high tensile strength; is easy to trim; and does not stick to itself. It is intended for use in the following cases: alveolar ridge augmentation and reconstruction; alveolar ridge preservation consequent to tooth extractions; over the window in sinus elevation procedures and for support of the Schneiderian membrane; in intra-bony defects around teeth; and guided tissue regeneration procedures for periodontal defects.

DEXassist

Dental imaging technology group DEXIS has announced the launch of the DEXassist solution, featuring assisted intelligence (AI)-enabled 2D findings as an addition to the DEXIS 10 Imaging Suite Software. Assisted Intelligence is a term often used to describe a form of AI that works in conjunction with human users to enhance their capabilities, decision-making processes, and overall performance. AI capabilities integrated into the software are intended to support dental practitioners in the analysis and interpretation of dental images. The AI algorithms assist in identifying specific pathologies or abnormalities in 2D intraoral X-rays, providing additional information and insights to aid clinicians in their diagnosis and treatment planning. This solution aims to redefine how practitioners approach the interpretation of intraoral x-rays, according to a press release from DEXIS. The DEXassist solution, which is said to seamlessly integrate with the DEXIS 10 software, draws on the power of AI from DTX Studio™ Clinic. It is designed to empower dental professionals to identify and analyze 6 crucial pathologies in 2D intraoral x-rays. These include cavities, calculus, bone loss, periapical radiolucency, root canal filing deficiency, and discrepancies at the margin of an existing restoration. In a click, clinicians can now identify key focus areas when taking x-rays directly within the DEXIS software, enhancing diagnostic accuracy and streamlining the decision-making process. Moreover, the DEXassist solution is said to facilitate effective communication with patients by presenting AI findings in an easily understandable format. Built on the robust DEXIS Imaging Suite Software platform, the DEXassist solution not only maintains high-performance standards but also introduces new efficiencies and diagnostic capabilities. The solution encourages standardization in workflows, ensuring consistency and reliability in dental practices.

[Clear Aligners]

SureSmileSimulator

The new SureSmileTM Simulator is a software tool that uses the company’s Primescan scan data to create a custom 3D visualization of the patient's possible smile following SureSmile® Clear Aligner Treatment. Powered by the company’s DS Core, a cloud-based platform that combines products, services, and technology to help shape the future of dental practices, users can easily access multiple patient records including scans, x-rays, and documents from multiple devices through the web-based browser facilitating a seamless start to your SureSmile workflow. With the simulator, clinicians can show their patients their new smiles before they start treatment. Minutes after uploading an intraoral scan from the Primescan intraoral scanner, the SureSmile Simulator creates a 3D visualization of the patient’s potential new smile following the clear aligner treatment. The simulation is designed to help support treatment acceptance, enhance case evaluation capabilities, set expectations, educate patients, and streamline the SureSmile Workflow with DS Core and Primescan. A 3D visualization is a great way for patients to see the potential value of their investment. Additionally, this workflow educates patients about their estimated treatment duration and potential results. You can save and send images to your patients so they can show family and friends. Once you receive a commitment from the patient, clinicians can initiate the SureSmile aligner treatment, including uploading photo records, scan data, and x-rays directly from DS Core to SureSmile.
