So let’s get to it and learn about these newly launched dental products.

First up…

Our first feature today comes from PreVu Software, a dental technology solutions company. They've just unveiled their latest breakthrough – an advanced dental treatment simulation software powered by their proprietary SmileAI artificial intelligence. According to a recent press release, SmileAI is set to redefine patient education and engagement in the dental industry. What's impressive is the speed at which simulations can now be generated – a mere 60 seconds! This faster, smarter, and simpler approach is expected to elevate the efficiency of dental professionals and enhance the overall patient experience.SmileAI utilizes advanced artificial intelligence algorithms to analyze facial structures and dental conditions, creating natural-looking and personalized smile simulations for each patient. The software also introduces new features to streamline chairside simulations, including improved whitening simulation capabilities that increase patient acceptance of whitening procedures. With an intuitive user interface, dental professionals can easily navigate and create compelling smile simulations. The use of PreVu digital smile mock-ups has been proven to increase patient interest and acceptance of high-value dental treatments. A game-changer indeed!

Moving on to our next product – Amann Girrbach introduces the Ceramill Matron, the first fifth-generation milling machine in the market. Engineered for optimal precision, excellent milling results, and maximum intuitive handling, this machine takes digital milling to a new level. The Ceramill Matron excels in working with a diverse range of materials, especially in the carbide sector. Its integrated Performance Blank Changer allows autonomous order processing with the capacity to handle up to 8 blanks, seamlessly integrating into the digital workflow. With 5-axis plus technology, extreme angles are no challenge for the Ceramill Matron, ensuring high precision even in pronounced undercuts. Quick tool changes are facilitated by the magnetically interchangeable 11-position tool carrier, SnapMag. The 45° arrangement of the A/B axes provides high rigidity and accuracy with vibration-damping properties during the milling process. The Ceramill Matron is designed to make the dental production process fully automated with its 8-fold blank changer and a high-resolution 21.5-inch display, contributing to a more enjoyable working experience for dental professionals.

Now, let's shift our focus to oral health with OraBio's latest product – Periovance Oral Rinse. Described as an all-natural liquid anesthetic, this innovative solution aims to provide dental professionals with a convenient and effective way to alleviate and manage patient pain both within and outside their offices. Offering full-mouth pain relief within 60 seconds of swishing, Periovance Oral Rinse allows hygienists to efficiently treat a range of oral conditions with a single dose providing up to 2 hours of pain relief. This versatile product extends to various dental applications, including gingivitis, scaling and root planing, dentures, orthodontic discomfort, and more. Periovance Oral Rinse features an alcohol-free formula containing key ingredients like Benzocaine, Maltodextrin, Aloe Vera Extracts, and Xylitol. These components work synergistically to provide fast pain relief, reduce severity, and enhance the overall patient experience.

Let's now talk about precision milling with Prefect PMMA Monolayer Discs. These durable PMMA discs, available in a single, clear shade, are designed specifically for milling occlusal splints and surgical guides. Well-suited for patients suffering from bruxism, these discs are abrasion-resistant and can be quickly milled for use as a surgical guide. With a shiny surface finish, these discs offer simplicity in polishing, providing dental professionals with reliable and efficient solutions for their patients.

Our next spotlight today is on sustainable oral care with the Curaprox Wooden Toothbrush. Made from durable Swiss beech wood harvested from sustainably managed forests, this toothbrush is designed to provide an effective daily oral care solution while minimizing its impact on the environment. Featuring a biodegradable and compostable brush handle, the Curaprox Wooden Toothbrush comes with 4440 tightly packed ultra-soft filaments for a comfortable brushing experience that reaches every area within the mouth. It's a small step towards eco-friendly oral care practices.

Our final product today is The iTero Lumina™ intraoral scanner. According to the manufacturer, the iTero Lumina boasts a 3X wider field of capture, all packed into a 50% smaller and 45% lighter wand. This not only ensures faster scanning speed but also guarantees higher accuracy, superior visualization, and enhanced comfort for users. Equipped with iTero Multi-Direct Capture technology, the iTero Lumina™ introduces several groundbreaking features. This includes a wider field of capture and multi-angled scanning, enabling simultaneous capture from multiple angles, resulting in smoother, faster, and more accurate scans. The scanner offers a larger capture distance, efficiently capturing more data and detail without the need for traditional bulky digital cameras and cheek retractors. The enhanced ergonomics and comfort are particularly beneficial for younger patients, ensuring a smooth and comfortable experience for both users and patients. The iTero Lumina™ intraoral scanner is available in both cart and mobile configurations on the iTero Plus Series platform, providing flexibility and convenience for dental professionals. With photorealistic scans that enable high-quality clinical decisions, the iTero Lumina™ is a game-changer in the world of intraoral scanning.
