Product Bites from Dental Products Report provides updates on the latest dental products in just a few minutes a week. [3 Min]
Welcome to Product Bites, a weekly podcast from Dental Products Report providing you with a rundown of recently launched an updated dental technologies, materials, instruments, and anything else you might use with your 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've got a trio of new dental technologies in the form of LunaLite Dental, Viax3D, and OraQ. So let's get into it and learn about these new innovative solutions.
Up first is the LunaLite Dental, a new product from LunaLite. This is a laser guided x-ray positioning system that straps right on top of the x-ray generator you're already using, providing laser guided accuracy to your x-ray process. The LunaLite is designed to automate positioning to make FMX series capture more efficient. It's also compatible with bitewings and periapicals, making it an efficient addition to any x-ray workflow.
Next up is Viax3D from Viax Dental Technologies. This new solution brings guided surgery principles to interproximal reduction. It was developed in collaboration with DPR columnist Dr. Lou Shuman, and it's designed to simplify the interproximal reduction process while making it more accurate and efficient. The 3D-printed guides work in conjunction with specialized burs to create a very precise interproximal reduction protocol that makes it easier to integrate within other orthodontic treatments.
Finally, we have OraQ from OraQ AI. As the name implies, this is another artificial intelligence platform. This software solution uses AI to drive practice efficiency, and it's designed to help increase case acceptance. The software analyzes patient records, their dental and medical histories, and more to help clinicians be prepared for any patient as they walk in the door. It also helps suggest potential treatments those patients might be in need of. An online patient portal also provides home access for patients allowing them to see customized recommendations from the software anytime they want to.
That's all for this week's Product Bites from Dental Products Report. But we'll be back next week with all the latest in dental products. And in between be sure to check out dentalproductsreport.com/newdentalproducts to see all the latest industry innovations.
