A-dec optimizes limited space with new Slimline cabinetry

Click here to enlarge image

A-dec now offers Preference Slimline, a complete line of space-saving cabinetry that makes the most of small spaces. Preference Slimline allows treatment rooms with limited space to incorporate cabinetry where traditional cabinets won’t fit. At only 9.5 inches (241 mm) deep, Preference Slimline cabinetry saves floor space, yet still offers enough room to accommodate utilities, emergency supplies, and small cassettes and equipment. Upper storage units are deep enough to accommodate smaller cassettes and offer an innovative, sliding track-mount that improves flat-panel monitor positioning.

Preference Slimline also seamlessly integrates with A-dec 500® 12 o’clock and side delivery systems to eliminate the clutter of bulky umbilicals and floor boxes that often accompany wall-mounted systems. It allows the dental team to move about more freely and provides more accommodation for larger equipment such as lasers and air abrasion units.

Ivoclar Vivadent, Inc. announces the next generation of all-ceramic materials - IPS e.max. IPS e.max encompasses both pressable and CAD/CAM technologies for fabricating esthetic and strong metal-free restorations. Complex multi-indication cases can be completed with just one restorative system.

The new system includes IPS e.max CAD, which are high-strength, pre-crystalized glass ceramic blocks for single-unit copings for anterior restorations. When higher strength is required, IPS e.max ZirCAD also can be processed efficiently with CAD/CAM technology. When pressable fabrication techniques are warranted, IPS e.max Press offers ideal fit, form, function, and optical properties for anterior crown copings and anterior bridges. For press-to-zirconia techniques, IPS e.max ZirPress maximizes the marginal integrity of the restorations.

Unifying the IPS e.max components is the IPS e.max Ceram layering ceramic, which is compatible with all of the IPS e.max substructures. Its nano-fluorapatite glass ceramic formula provides an opalescence, translucency, and brightness that enables the creation of life-like restorations, regardless of fabrication technique.
