// Dental Adhesive

Rodin™ Bond

An expansion of Pac-Dent's Rodin™ product line, Rodin™ Bond dental adhesive is a versatile light-cured material, optimized for both direct and indirect restorations. The adhesive boasts cutting-edge glass filler technology, that deeply permeates dentin tubules helping create tight structural bonds that reportedly outperform unfilled adhesive systems. Rodin Bond is compatible with a wide range of dental materials, including dentin, enamel, composites, zirconia, and commonly used metals. When paired with Rodin Sensiguard, a 2-in-1 desensitizer, and primer, it enhances the bond and also seals dentin tubules, reducing sensitivity and preventing caries formation beneath restorations. Both Rodin Bond and Sensiguard are designed for efficiency, featuring a user-friendly flip-top cap for precise adhesive dispensing and unit-dose packaging to preserve material integrity.

Align Product Updates

Align has several new software and material updates for its treatment planning software, its iTero Element Plus series, its SmartForce attachment, and its Vivera retainer. Altogether, these updates have been made to streamline various Align workflows. First is the Plan Editor for Align’sClinCheck software. Plan Editor enables dentists to easily edit a treatment plan as needed, with changes going live in ClinCheck shortly thereafter. It will also ensure that patients receive the best treatment plan possible, as it can be modified as needed throughout the process. Next is new software Align Oral Health Suite, which is designed to allow clinicians to make custom oral health reports through the iTero Element series. Patients can better see dental and oral health conditions through easy visualization processes in the Oral Health Suite. Align has also announced a new feature for the SmartForce attachment, which cuts back on the need for double attachments, enhancing the esthetics of the aligner without sacrificing quality of care. Finally, Align has also announced a new subscription model for its Vivera retainers, allowing non-first time patients to order their retainer directly from their doctor to be shipped to their house. This will clear up space in the dental practice as well as save the patient a trip to the office. Note that this is only available to return Vivera users and that new patients will still be required to receive their first retainer through the dental practice. These new digital and material updates will strengthen Align’s roster of product offerings while providing new features that dentists and patients will desire.

Invisalign Palatal Expander

This 3D-printed device safely expands skeletal and/or dental narrow maxilla for growing patients, eliminating the woes of uncomfortable metal expanders that require a screw to turn. These palatal expanders are formulated using a proprietary 3D-printing formula that proves safe and effective in rapid expansion. Said to be clinically effective, this 3D-printed innovation may provide a more comfortable alternative for growing patients who may be fearful of potential pain that would typically be associated with metal palatal expanders. This device is also said to assuage typical hygiene concerns by being removable. When used with Invisalign First aligners, dentists can create a full orthodontic solution for early intervention in younger patients, according to a press release from the company. The Invisalign Palatal Expander aims to hit markets in 2024 pending regulatory approval.

Cocoshine

The newest toothpaste to hit the market from oral care company Cocofloss is Cocoshine, a whitening, nano-hydroxyapatite formula that is designed to tackle 4 important tasks simultaneously. It’s built to whiten, repair sensitivity, balance the oral microbiome, and rebuild enamel strength, all while being a gentle and refreshing toothpaste, according to a press release from the company. Its formulation of nano-hydroxyapatite is said to get down below the surface of the tooth to remineralize, therefore building it back up to a strong and healthy tooth. At the same time, this formula is also said to repair microcracks in the enamel, creating a smoother and whiter tooth. To address hypersensitivity, nano-hydroxyapatite can replace minerals lost and fill dentinal tubules. Cocoshine’s nano-hydroxyapatite is sourced directly from Fluidinova. Alongside the nano-hydroxyapatite (nanoXIM)Cocoshine also contains some key ingredients to create a healthy smile, including xylitol, coconut oil, and aloe vera. Cocoshine’s baking soda, silica, and nano-hydroxyapatite replace peroxide to whiten, eliminating the potentially abrasive chemical in favor of gentler alternatives. It contains no sulfates, parabens, propylene glycol, triclosan, artificial dyes, or sweeteners. Cocoshine is cruelty-free and vegan, per the press release, and comes in 2 different flavors called Delicious Mint and Lychee Breeze. Cocoshine is Cocofloss’s latest offering, joining a variety of oral care products such as toothbrushes and floss.
