The weekly new products podcast from Dental Products Report, Product Bites is a quick dip into the latest dental innovations. [3 Min]
Welcome to Product Bites, a weekly podcast from Dental Products Report, providing you with a rundown of recently launched and updated dental technologies, materials, instruments, and everything else you might use with patients or while running your practice.
I'm your host for this week, DPR Editorial Director Noah Levine, and on this week's podcast we'll be covering rezSharp Scalars and Curettes from TBS Dental, the Sensonic electric toothbrush from Waterpik, and Henry Schein Thrive Service Plus. So let's jump right in and talk about these latest industry innovations.
The new reSharp line of scalers and curettes from TBS dental are designed to be sharp for a long time. They're made from aerospace-grade stainless steel, and they feature a unique hand grip with a twist that TBS Dental developed to reduce hand fatigue and provide an optimal grip for long scaling and root planing procedures. They feature silicone grips to make them comfortable for everyday use, and they're available in universal curettes, sickle scalers, anterior sickle scalers, posterior sickle scalers, area specific Gracie curettes, area specific AF Gracie curettes, and calculus explorers.
The Sensonic electric toothbrush from Waterpik features a new bristle pattern that's designed to hug the natural contour of tooth surfaces. The electric toothbrush apparently can do 4 times more plaque and bacteria removal than manual brushing alone in hard to reach areas. It provides three different brushing modes, and has a battery that is said to deliver up to four weeks of use on a single charge.
Henry Schein's latest addition to their Thrive subscription services is Henry Schein Thrive Service Plus. This equipment repair subscription service provides priority access to the company's ServiceFirst technicians to deliver in-office repair for large dental equipment. Part of the Henry Schein Thrive Rewards program, the service also provides technical advisors for remote support who can help eliminate the need for on-site service. Subscription members also get priority dispatch from ServiceFirst teams when they need critical equipment repairs.
