RECENT ADVANCEMENTS IN DENTISTRY THAT WILL GUIDE FUTURE

r.Pod 3D printer from Valplast

The r.Pod™ is a desktop 3D printer capable of printing thermoplastic resins for the construction of digital models, custom trays and soft tissue implant models. The printer is also capable of printing original Valplast® nylon resin for flexible partial dentures. Valplast® dentures that are printed with the r.Pod™ are compatible with custom designed denture teeth that may be milled or printed

Trios 3 Mono from 3Shape

 

The TRIOS 3 Mono is a new entry-level version of its TRIOS 3 intraoral scanner. The TRIOS 3 Mono is designed to deliver the same accuracy, speed and ease-of-use as all TRIOS intraoral scanners, but takes digital impressions without colour. It will sell at a price point at nearly 40 per cent less than TRIOS 3 colour models. Additionally, the TRIOS 3 Mono is upgradable to a TRIOS 3 colour model at any time. The cost of the upgrade is the price difference between the two scanners and a service fee.

Mobile True Definition Scanner from 3M

The compact, ergonomic design of 3M’s new tablet-based intraoral scanner is similar to other rechargeable tablets that patients and clinicians use in their daily lives, allowing clinicians to move freely between operatories without power cords or carts. Flexible mounting options are engineered to help to minimize workspace clutter, offering more space for the clinician and assistant to maneuver in small spaces. Informed discussion and visual patient communication is made easy with a system that can be placed directly into the hands or lap of a patient, where they see a digital visualization of their oral anatomy and, ultimately, gain a better understanding of proposed treatments.

Axsys Incorporated has entered into Reseller Agreement with DWS Systems

 

Axsys will distribute the DWS Systems Digital Wax®-D series of dental 3D printers. The Digital Wax®-D series Printers includes four rapid manufacturing systems reportedly suited to the needs of small, medium and industrial orthodontic laboratories. In the DIGITALWAX® D line there are also resins and materials for the production of castable high-definition crowns, bridges, medical devices and long-term temporary restorations. The DWS System’s Dental Series line of 3D Printers expands Axsys Dental Solutions’ existing portfolio of digital dental solutions.

D2000 dental lab scanner from 3Shape

 

At the Chicago Midwinter Meeting, 3Shape introduced their updated D2000 dental lab scanner. The updated D2000 features new enhancements designed to reduce even more time and steps in the digital dental workflow. 3Shape revealed five new ways the D2000 can reportedly shorten your workflow.

GEO Expert Wax Set from Renfert

 

The GEO Expert Wax Set reportedly allows the production of monolithic, diagnostic and aesthetic wax-ups for single restorations and bridgework, promoting coordination between the patient, dental office and laboratory from the very beginning (while waxing up). The set’s highlight is a comprehensive manual, which demonstrates how to create monolithic, diagnostic and hyper-realistic/true-to-nature wax-ups according to the philosophy developed by August Bruguera. These instructions are step-by-step and include many illustrations and texts.
