Product Bites – May 24, 2024


A bite-sized look at all the latest dental product launches. This week's episode features products from SprintRay, Overjet, Ivoclar, DEXIS, and Kuraray Noritake Dental.

Product Bites Script May 24, 2024:

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 Editor Kellie Nock, and on this week’s podcast we’ve got 8 new products with launches from SprintRay, Overjet, Ivoclar, DEXIS, and Kuraray Noritake Dental.

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

First up

SprintRay has introduced the new Pro2 desktop 3D printer. This printer is powered by the all-new Optical Panel technology, offering a 35-micron XY resolution and 385 nanometer UV light. The Pro2 can print up to 6 full-arch dental models in just 15 minutes, maintaining over 99% dimensional stability.

Alongside this launch, SprintRay unveiled 2 new resins from their BioMaterial Innovation Lab: a direct-print Retainer resin and a next-gen Dental Model resin. When combined with the Pro2, these resins enable clinicians to fabricate appliances with optimal anatomy and a precise marginal fit, making high-volume orthodontic production and precise restorative work faster and more accurate. Speaking of the SprintRay Retainer resin, this new material allows for the direct 3D printing of retainers, eliminating traditional labor steps and enabling same-day delivery. The SprintRay Retainer resin, combined with the Pro2 printer, offers an efficient solution for orthodontists, speeding up fabrication and ensuring precise marginal fit.

Next, let’s talk about the SprintRay Dental Model resin. This advanced resin is designed for orthodontic and dental models, promising significant speed and accuracy improvements for digital workflows. The Pro2 printer, in combination with the Dental Model resin, allows clinicians to create appliances with precise anatomy and fit. SprintRay also plans to validate Ivoclar resins with their 3D printing ecosystem, broadening the range of restorative materials and enhancing flexibility and speed in dental care delivery.

Moving on to artificial intelligence in dental insurance, Overjet has announced enhancements to its Insurance Intelligence platform. These upgrades enable dental insurers to approve claims much faster. The platform now includes Overjet Connect, which connects insurers with licensed professionals for case review, streamlining workflows across the U.S. With new AI capabilities, the platform can automatically review over 350 CDT codes, ensuring efficient and accurate claims processing.

In other news, Ivoclar has expanded its Variolink® Esthetic line with a new White opaque shade, available in both dual-cure and light-cure variants. These enhancements provide clinicians with more flexibility in adhesive cementation, ensuring consistent and reliable results across various restorative materials. The light-cure variant now features enhanced viscosity for easier handling, especially in veneer cementation, while the dual-cure variant offers new esthetic options with its White opaque shade.

DEXIS has introduced the Ti2 intraoral sensor, the successor to the DEXIS Titanium Sensor. This new sensor features a more durable housing, a proactive servicing module, and access to 2D AI dental findings. The AI capabilities can automatically detect a range of dental issues, including periapical radiolucency, bone loss, and caries, enhancing diagnostic accuracy. The Ti2 sensor also boasts improved drop resistance and the innovative WiseAngle™ cable design, ensuring patient comfort and longevity of the device.

Lastly, let’s highlight two new products from CLEARFIL™. The Universal Bond Quick 2 is a single-bottle adhesive system that forms an immediate bond to dentin and enamel, simplifying restorative procedures. It resists pooling and ensures consistent, strong bonds. Additionally, CLEARFIL MAJESTY™ ES Flow Universal is a high-viscosity flowable composite that mimics natural tooth structure, blending seamlessly with surrounding dentition. It's suitable for both posterior and anterior restorations, providing durable and esthetic outcomes.
