This device allows clinicians to polish without the restraints of cords, short battery life, or the weight associated with a traditional hygiene handpiece. The ProMate CL features dual-mode speed control, six speed settings (500 to 4000 rpm) and a long-lasting, rechargeable battery. Pac-Dent reports the new instrument is compatible with all popular (Doriot style) disposable prophy angles.

The I-Max Ceph and I-Max Ceph 3D feature a small footprint, standard- and reduced-dose cephalometric examination options, and a sensitive sensor with short exposure time. In addition to two-dimensional radiography, the I-Max Ceph 3D can easily be switched to three-dimensional cone beam imaging. It offers exceptional image quality, multiple fields of view (from 5×5 to 12×10 cm), three-dimensional object scanning, and airway study capabilities.

Clarity Aligners Flex + Force, a new aligner system from 3M Oral Care (800-423-4588; 3M.com), allows clinicians to choose between two levels of flexibility (i.e., modulus of elasticity).

Featuring rigid, one-layer construction, Clarity Aligner Force gets the nod when clinicians take a segmental mechanics approach. Offering a customized patient experience and suitable for multiples types of cases, including mixed dentition, these stain- and scratch-resistant aligners offer excellent force persistence, as well as easy insertion and removal.
