Caesy DVD 2006
CAESY DVD 2006 released
CAESY Education Systems releases its newest version of DVD software, CAESY DVD 2006. As with previous versions, the informative and concise presentations explain diagnoses, procedures, alternatives, and postop instructions to patients. The DVD is designed to be used in every operatory, allowing the dentist to review a presentation on veneers in one operatory, while a hygienist is showing a perio presentation in a second, and an assistant is showing root canal information to an emergency patient in a third.
CAESY DVD 2006 has five new and 15 updated multimedia presentations featuring 3-D animation, full-motion video, and easy-to-understand narration. The High Technology (formerly called New Technology) and TMD sections have been completely updated with the latest information on the topics using new video, audio, animations, and graphics. The hard-tissue and soft-tissue laser presentations have been replaced with one presentation covering the latest on both topics. Four new neuromuscular dentistry presentations have been added to the TMD section - Neuromuscular and TMD, NM Diagnosis, NM Treatments, and What is NM?

You spend long hours working with your patients. You take great care to give them the very best treatment possible, but when was the last time you invested in your own health?

It features two independently adjustable back supports that quickly and easily adapt to the spinal contour of the user with the press of a button. The upper and lower back supports move up and down and forward and backward independently, allowing unparalleled flexibility to fit you. The multi-adjustable armrests move forward/back, wider/narrower, up/down, and turn-in/turn-out. The HealthChair is the perfect compliment to loupes or a microscope, providing proper spinal support to the clinician while working in an upright position.
If you share an operatory or examination room with others, you’ll appreciate how the HealthChair quickly returns to your setting.

New Calamus� Flow obturation delivery system
Clinicians performing root canal therapy can now achieve dense, three-dimensional fills with comfort and convenience using the new CalamusFlow obturation delivery system from DENTSPLY Tulsa Dental. Designed for ergonomic control and easy clean-up, the CalamusFlow system has a slender, pen-like handpiece that provides tactile sensation, visibility, and comfortable access to all areas of the mouth. Lightly pressing and releasing any flat portion of the activation cuff around the handpiece allows the start and stop of gutta-percha flow into the canal. The temperature and flow rate of gutta-percha are easily controlled with buttons on the console, and the amount of filling material loaded in the handpiece can be monitored through the indicator window. The system features disposable Calamussingles gutta-percha cartridges, which make working with warm filling material neat and convenient, with no mess. Cartridges are filled with gutta-percha specifically chosen for its flow characteristics, and they are available in 20-and 23-gauge sizes.

Say goodbye to future caries attacks!
Cosmedent Inc. introduces CosmeSeal, a powerful new light-cured pit and fissure sealant material. Whether you prefer CosmeSeal-Filled (a microfill sealant) or CosmeSeal-Clear (an unfilled sealant), you will be impressed by CosmeSeal’s excellent delivery, easy placement, and natural appearance. Because CosmeSeal-Filled has a microfill filler, it surpasses all hybrid filled sealants. While the material has some color for easy detection, it blends nicely with actual tooth color for a realistic appearance. Its small particle size makes the material polishable and virtually indiscernible at the margins.
CosmeSeal-Clear is perfect for those patients and clinicians who prefer an invisible sealant. It is undetectable by color, but easily differentiated from tooth structure by feel. Both sealants have a low viscosity and a non-runny consistency.
For more information, call (800) 621-6729 or visit www.cosmedent.com.

Mark VI apex locator
Miltex introduces a new micro-sized apex locator that can be positioned near the oral cavity. The Mark VI apex locator is used within the field of vision of the operator to reduce fatigue. Dental assistants love it because it is easy to set up and the cables are very short - so less time is spent untangling and making space for a bulky piece of equipment.
Using sophisticated software, the Miltex Mark VI immediately converts analog signals to digital format and transmits data via short cables. The cables are 80 percent shorter than those used in other apex locators, reducing electromagnetic interference that can affect accuracy. It is powered by two lithium batteries that are available almost anywhere.
The Mark VI can be clipped anywhere at a very short distance from the oral cavity. Five LEDs, distributed every half millimeter, show the depth of progress. It accurately locates the apex in all canal conditions, including dry, wet, and bleeding canals. The unit offers a full two-year warranty.
