Premier® Enamel Pro™ prophy paste
Premier introduces Enamel Pro, the only prophy paste with ACP (Amorphous Calcium Phosphate). Enamel Pro creates ACP when it contacts the patient’s teeth and saliva. As ACP forms, it is incorporated within the enamel surface where it remains after rinsing. The available ACP helps prevent future damage by stimulating re-mineralization. Scientific data supports that Enamel Pro actually gives greater luster for whiter, brighter teeth.
Patients and dental professionals appreciate the unique presentation, pleasant aroma, flavors, and taste of Enamel Pro, as it removes stains and polishes quickly without splatter. Available in multiple grits and four flavors - mint, grape, strawberry and cinnamon.

Delton® Seal-N-Glo™ Pit & Fissure Sealant
Delton - the most trusted name in pit and fissure sealants - now offers a product which eliminates the guesswork involved with placing sealants and confirming placement during recall appointments. Delton Seal-N-Glo Illuminating Pit & Fissure Sealant is a 38 percent filled, syringe-delivered, opaque sealant with fluoride. Through the use of a UV pen light, Seal-N-Glo fluoresces a blue/white color. The fluorescent glow provides clinicians with a visual verification of the sealant margins at the time of placement and offers the easiest way to verify retention and inspect margins during patient recall appointments. Unlike other products on the market, Seal-N-Glo’s fluorescent technology is valuable throughout the lifetime of the sealant.

Pulpdent’s Embrace First-Coat Primer now offered as a refill item
Pulpdent Corporation, manufacturer of Embrace™ WetBond™ products, is now offering Embrace First-Coat™ Primer individually as a refill item. First-Coat is a key component of the Embrace Restoration & PFM Repair Kit. The repair kit, which is used to repair fractured porcelain restorations and can be used intra-orally, has received extremely high ratings from the world’s most respected independent testing organizations.
Embrace First-Coat is a unique, light-cure resin primer that replaces Silane and metal adhesives and is placed on both the porcelain and metal surfaces. It contains no solvents and represents the first significant improvement in porcelain repair materials in two decades. It can be cured with any curing light.
Testing indicates that the adhesive bond strength between First-Coat and porcelain is stronger than the cohesive strength of porcelain itself. First-Coat obsoletes the use of Silane as a porcelain primer. It solves the difficult chemistry problem created by bonding an organic resin to an inorganic ceramic surface.
First-Coat is available in a 1.2 mL syringe and includes 10 flocked applicator tips.

New crown prep product offered
Common Sense Dental’s PrepCheck tabs are equipped with a special coating that marks the tooth in areas that need to be reduced. PrepCheck promotes adequate reduction allowing for the ideal thickness of the final restoration, and it ensures superior strength and esthetics. This prep-marking system can increase accuracy and promote better fit for all types of crown preps.
PrepCheck tabs come in three sizes - 1 mm for gold crown, 1.5 mm for PFM, and 2 mm for nonmetal.
Use PrepCheck in three simple steps - 1) Prepare crown prep as usual and select size; 2) ask patient to bite on the PrepCheck tab. Do not pull or tug on the tab. A properly prepared tooth will resist tug even if occlusal reduction is adequate; 3) look at the occlusal contacts on adjacent teeth. These should appear to occlude when the tab is in place.
If the occlusal contacts do not meet, adequate reduction has not been achieved. Remove the tab and reduce areas that are marked by the special coating on PrepCheck tabs.

FibreKleer™ post system
The clear FibreKleer post system is the latest in esthetic, high-strength fiber post technology from Pentron Clinical Technologies, LLC, one of the first manufacturers to introduce esthetic fiber posts. The FibreKleer post is ideal for all post applications, especially under all-ceramic crowns where final esthetics are critical. The post takes on the shade of the restoration, preventing the grey shadow effect that can occur with metal posts. This ability ensures more natural-looking restorations. Its high light transmission enables light initiation of dual-cure cements to speed the placement procedure.
Because of its unidirectional arrangement of glass fibers, the FibreKleer post has an impressive flexural strength of 1577 MPa and a flexural modulus of 26 GPa. So it’s not only strong, it may minimize root fractures. The posts are available in two body designs and a variety of sizes - parallel with a retentive head for increased mechanical core retention, and tapered for conservative dentistry and minimal tooth reduction.

New Zirconia Procera® Esthetic Abutment Selection Kit
Nobel Biocare introduces a revolutionary new concept for restorative implant dentistry - the Procera Esthetic Abutment Selection Kit. First of their kind in the industry, this new concept offers individual, pre-determined abutment designs in zirconia that optimize biocompatibility and soft-tissue response, while virtually eliminating the need for a fixture-level impression. The abutments come in a variety of pre-determined sizes and shapes derived from analyses of thousands of clinical cases. The kit offers a variety of pre-made zirconia abutments, allowing the doctor to choose the one that best matches the patient’s tissue contours. Because the emergence profiles are already built-in, minimal or no chairside adjustment is required. Approximately 80 percent of a doctor’s restorative requirements can be handled directly out of the selection kit with minimal adjustments on the same day of surgery.
