Veraviewepocs panoramic X-ray unit from J. Morita
Veraviewepocs is a high-speed, panoramic X-ray available as a film or digital system with a cephalometric option. It offers a panoramic scan time of just eight seconds, resulting in reduced patient radiation exposure. Both the film and digital systems produce brilliant, contrast-rich images for accurate diagnosis. Additionally, the digital model features a high-resolution CCD sensor with a CsI scintillator. CsI is more efficient than standard scintillators; light scatter is reduced, resulting in a sharper image. With several automatic functions, Veraviewepocs is easy to operate; it is self-calibrating and no adjustments are necessary once it is connected to power. With a full range of panoramic and cephalometric imaging capabilities, it is the ultimate diagnostic tool. Other features include auto focus, auto exposure (film), superior cassette system, uniform magnification (image layer center), plus easy and accurate patient positioning.

The i2: The next-generation Isolite
The new i2 is a strong, lightweight, titanium unit weighing only 2.5 ounces. The new, streamlined design integrates electrical supply with vacuum, eliminating the need for a separate fiberoptic bundle. The i2 is less cumbersome to use and stores easily on your assistant’s toolbar. The i2 introduces new proprietary technology that uses vacuum to cool the LED light. With this design, Isolite has eliminated fiberoptics and light boxes from the operatory. The LED light is ultra-bright, long-lasting, and allows fingertip adjustment of light intensity. Dual fingertip controls independently adjust maxillary and mandibular sections for vacuum strength - helpful for patients with tooth sensitivity, or to compensate for low vacuum in the operatory. The i2 comes with a disposable, single-use, flexible Isolite mouthpiece that is available in four sizes. Experience the difference operating with bright light in a dry field with tongue and saliva control.

KaVo DIAGNOdent pen
Confidently detect hidden decay with KaVo’s new handheld caries detection aid, DIAGNOdent pen. This cordless, lightweight, highly accurate diagnostic device uses laser technology to extend the clinician’s vision into sub-surface sites where caries can develop, multiply, and thrive. Just like the DIAGNOdent, the DIAGNOdent pen is highly effective at detecting incipient pit and fissure caries that would otherwise test negative using X-rays, explorer, or other diagnostic means. It aids in differentiating healthy from diseased tooth structure without resorting to guesswork. The DIAGNOdent pen allows the dentist or hygienist to quantify and monitor caries over time. Extremely reliable and noninvasive, the DIAGNOdent pen caries detection aid will allow you to provide a greater degree of preventive care to patients.

Implant drill stop
A common problem related to the surgical placement of dental implants is the difficulty clearly seeing the depth markings on the drills. A detachable stop which controls penetration of the drill into the bone greatly increases safety and minimizes risk. The stop allows the surgeon to focus on the axial dimension and not be required to keep their eyes on the markings. The stop prevents creating an osteotomy deeper than a predetermined depth. The drill stop is fabricated of surgical stainless steel, is autoclavable, and can be used indefinitely.
The stop is designed to be used with the Straumann drills. Two diameters of stops are available. The smaller stop can be used with 2.2/2.8/and 3.5 mm drills. A larger diameter is needed for the 4.2 mm drill. The stops are offered in 8/10/12/14 mm depth control. Stops are available for both short and long drills. The stops also may be incorporated into a surgical stent and serve as a drill sleeve with depth control.
For more information, visit www.drillstops.com.
Ergo Elite™ telescoping system
The Ergo Elite Telescoping System is one of the newest additions to ASI’s line of Advanced Endodontic Systems™, with full instrument integration from only one foot control.
