Blizzident touts its new toothbrush as being able to clean teeth in six seconds fat – an enticing claim in today’s extremely fast-paced society. This toothbrush has a unique design that resembles an upside-down scrub brush. The Blizzident bristles are tailored to each individual’s set of teeth using a 3D model created from an impression or scan provided by one’s dentist. Adhering to the brushing guidelines provided on the website – brushing and grinding about 10 to 15 times – ensures that all areas of the teeth are cleaned. Blizzident lasts for about a year and can even be enhanced with dental foss simply by routing foss through small slots in the device.
Flossolution’s Flossguard line of products was created by Flossolution founder and Orlando dentist Dr. Tim Pruett, who, after listening to his patients’ many concerns, realized that his patients needed a new approach to fossing. Flossolution offers a start-up kit that includes a charging base, "Flossengine," "Flossarm" with Flossguard technology, and a free brush arm. The start-up kit supplies fossing needs for two months, and replacement Flossarms, Brusharms, and Flossers are available. The Flossguard line provides quick, painless, and professional flossing.

Carestream Dental recently introduced the CS WinOMS Cloud, a cloud version of their practice management software. The cloud version of the 25-year-old software allows oral surgeons to store data, patient information, and applications in one place; dental teams can access needed information 24/7 via any Internetconnected device.

CS WinOMS Cloud always uses the most recent version of the software, so there is no longer a need for manual upgrades.
