  San Jose, CA (PRWEB) January 27, 2015       One trait almost all celebrities have in their quiver of talents is their irresistible charisma that announces itself through their self-assured demeanor, poise and a dazzling smile. But when a broken veneer threatens to eclipse the beaming smile, what does the celebrity do? Well, not just a local celebrity but a top notch sportsman, a national celebrity –- winner of three Super Bowls!       To get the glory of his pearly whites restored he starts from his home in Portola Valley, types 40880 Fremont Boulevard, Fremont, on his GPS and heads towards Pannu Dental Care.     And lo and behold, the former 49er makes an entry into the office on December 23, a day so busy for dentists that they would prefer to forgo blinking their eyes than to lose a few precious seconds. With oscillating expressions of amazement, awe and pride the front desk staff greets Roger Craig courteously. He explains his predicament and is prepared to dunk his teeth into the goey impressions and wait patiently for days, even weeks to get a veneer. But it turns out to be a day of surprises – of course pleasant ones – for him.       Living in the hub of technology where scientific advancements are giving a tough competition to the realm of magic, it is difficult to be startled by scientific procedures or instruments.

Full Spectrum Laser Debuts High Resolution Phoenix Digital Light 3D Printer Line; 3D Printer World Convention and Expo Sees Launch of Phoenix Digital Light Projector 3D Printer Line

Full Spectrum Laser (fslaser.com/), and its FSL3D subsidiary, the rapidly growing laser and 3D-printer engineering and manufacturing company based in Las Vegas, Nev., today unveiled two new, high-resolution, digital light 3D resin printers intended for jewelry and dental markets at the 3D Printer World Convention and Expo in Burbank, Calif. On display for the first time was the new Phoenix Touch 1080P DLP 3D Printer.

Digital light projectors (DLP) expose images into light-hardening liquid resin to quickly build a 3D object layer by layer. Since the entire 2D field is exposed at once, DLP technology can enable much faster print times without sacrificing quality. The Phoenix Touch 1080P comes with a built-in, standalone touchscreen computer, advanced software for Macintosh or Windows, and features a ball screw for the highest Z-axis motion accuracy in the industry. XY pixel resolution is a sharp 50um and the build volume is 96mm x 54 mm x 100mm. Unique to FSL3D, patent-pending SuperVAT(TM) technology on the Phoenix Touch line of 3D printers replaces consumable PDMS-type build containers common on competitor's printers for faster and more reliable prints without the costs and time involved with changing PDMS vats.

AuthAir, Inc. Introduces AuthAir Dental's Enhanced Business Intelligence

AuthAir Inc. , the company best known for its pioneering work in seamlessly integrated authentication, unveils the latest software for its flagship AuthAir Dental product at this week's Yankee Dental Congress in Boston. The software builds upon AuthAir's reputation for helping dental and healthcare practices meet regulations with little-to-no change in their daily procedures. While keeping ease of implementation and assistance meeting HIPAA guidelines paramount, this latest release focuses on delivering profit-enhancing guidance to doctors looking for real-time, actual data to guide their decision-making.

Convergent Dental Celebrates Explosive Growth, Widespread Adoption of its Innovative Solea CO2 Hard and Soft Tissue Dental Laser

Yankee Dental Congress - Convergent Dental Inc. , a privately held dental device company, is proud to announce the significant milestones the company reached in 2014, the first year its flagship dental laser Solea was available to the market. Solea has quickly established itself as a critical tool in the dental operatory because it enables any dentist to virtually eliminate anesthesia and blood from operative dentistry. Solea's success is largely attributed to its unique 9.3 micron wavelength and computer controls, both of which are firsts in laser dentistry.

Empowering dentists to perform virtually anesthesia-free and blood-free procedures is transforming practices with dramatic efficiency gains and entirely new patient experiences. With drills, dentists lose valuable time injecting patients and waiting for numbness, then they are limited to working in one quadrant of the mouth due to the risk of patient injury. Solea dentists report performing 95 percent of both hard and soft tissue procedures without anesthesia or bleeding, enabling them to start immediately, routinely execute multi-quadrant dentistry, fill cavities when they are discovered in hygiene and perform soft tissue procedures they would never have done without a laser. These time savings result in dentists performing six or more procedures per day and revenue gains of 25-40 percent.

New Technologies Bring Hope Smiles to Patients With Disabilities

For many special needs patients, orthodontic care may seem out of reach due to physical and developmental challenges. However, new technologies in treatment, and the availability of advanced education in caring for special needs patients, are making a surprising and welcome difference in the lives of many patients with disabilities. The American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) reports that many of its members are able to successfully address the orthodontic treatment needs of those with physical, cognitive and developmental disabilities.

"In particular, the orthodontic challenges seen in patients with cerebral palsy, autism, Asperger's and Down syndrome are being addressed with positive outcomes," say David R. Musich, DDS, MS, and Matthew J. Busch, DDS, Chicago-area orthodontists with a long history of treating special needs patients.

New technologies are opening new doors for special needs patients seeking treatment for tooth alignment issues and complications specific to a patient's disability. These include temporary anchorage devices that help move specific teeth, minimally invasive surgical procedures, clear aligners that can be removed for hygiene purposes, implants, self-ligating brackets, and improved oral hygiene measures. In addition to overcoming the oral health challenges created by disabilities, these special patient populations, just like others, benefit from the boost of confidence that comes with a healthy, beautiful smile.

Emotionless while vacuuming saliva

WITH his deadpan assistant hoovering the inside of my mouth with that ghastly sucky pipe, the spits and hisses splitting the sanitised silence, the dentist took a step back and tutted.

"Looks as if you've been eating too much sugar," he offered in that irritating "will they ever learn?" tone.

"I don't mind you calling me fat," I mumbled, my tongue wrestling with the angry pipe, "but I've warned you before about calling me sugar."

Is your pet suffering in silence?

Most common clinical health problem in dogs and cats can go unnoticed by pet owners

GUELPH, ON, Jan. 29, 2015 /CNW/ - A new survey by Ipsos Reid has revealed the good, the bad and the ugly about pet owners' awareness of dental diseases in their cats and dogs.

According to the survey, conducted on behalf of Royal Canin, while nine in ten Canadian pet owners believe dental disease is linked to their pet's overall health, a quarter of them are unaware of the clinical signs of the disease and only 12 per cent of them could identify all the signs of the disease. What's worse is that many pets may be suffering in silence.
