Newsletter July 2010

Dear Friends,

hopefully we are all happy about the start of the rainy season, either because mother nature was craving for water or we are simply enjoying the lower temperatures. Since it’s cooler outside and our work may become less stressful again, we’ve collected some interesting topics for you.

Dental Domain had successful summer activities this year, the first group of Dentists enjoyed already a trip with our team to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, where more will follow later. Many laboratory owner and technician had workshop with Vertex Dental and last but not least more than 150 Dentists joined our special Practice Management lecture by Dr. Stace Lind from Ultradent last week.

Furthermore we have collected some other short summaries in this edition of our newsletter.

Enjoy reading,
Your Dental Domain Team

LED’s be independent
Picture

The new Alegra contra-angle handpieces offers optimum daylight quality LEDs. This makes a motor light supply unnecessary! The unique W&H technology with integrated generator permits you to have outstanding independence in this area. The main features at a glance:

  • independent LED light, no changes at your chair installation
  • robust design
  • wide product range
  • sterilizable and thermodisinfectable
  • integrated water filter
  • Data matrix code
  • Outstanding W&H quality
  • Generator technology usable as an upgrade device in your existing equipment
  • Daylight quality LED, bright and durable

Generator technolgoy
In the Alegra contra-angle handpieces, a generator acts as a self-sufficient energy source that feeds the LED. The generator is similar in function to a bicycle dynamo. The system works entirely independently and thus does not need a light source for the motor being used. Daylight quality LED light is directly available for the dentist, without further investment or any effort.

Whitening with Accommodation
Much has been said in regards to whitening.  Actually, with too many choices in the market, it can spin your head around with confusion. Whitening has gone a long way with just gel and individual tray as an option and the hassle of wearing them till you wake up the following morning. And, at this day and age, people are just in a rush all the time. Even our manner of communicating, there’s text and, now, the famous twitter. The quicker, the better. But, is it really better?

Studies have shown that until the best whitening treatment is the good old fashion Take-Home style. Although, we may groan and moan that this is so, this style has been tried and tested to be the most effective and has more lasting effect. However, the market desire on this style has wane that the manufacturers are finally hearing what the market wants. Ultradent has introduced the innovative Tres White. What’s good about it is that it accommodates our desire for quick fix with minimal hassle yet maintains the good old fashion best result that Take Home Whitening brings. With Tres White, there’s no need for an individual tray anymore, it fits all. It also reduces the time consuming of wearing it. The patient only requires an hour per day for a minimum of 7-10 days. Plus, it has a higher concentration of hydrogen peroxide of 10% that is not the norm for Take-Home Whitening products. The best part is that it tastes really great with a variety of flavors to choose from and so easy to use, all you have to do is suck and swallow upon placement.

Now, with all that accommodations that provide great results, they even step up one point higher in the scale of giving what the market wants. Recently, they came up with Tres White Ortho. Who says that you cannot whiten when you have braces? The complicated becomes uncomplicated, and the difficult becomes easy. All of this at a very reasonable price.

So, aren’t you yet interested in making your patients try it out now or even better try it yourself?
