A listing of featured products.
VOCO (888-658-2584; vocoamerica.com) introduces Structur CAD, a family of esthetic composite blocks and discs that is said to be ideal for short- or long-term provisional restorations. Designed to allow practitioners to mill temporary crowns and bridges quickly and reliably, Structur CAD has outstanding edge stability after milling. Polishing is quick and easy, and the material’s fluorescence is reportedly similar to natural dentition. These milled temporary restorations are easy to reproduce and repair, and can be customized with conventional composites. Cementation can also be customized to fit the patient’s particular situation, and Structur CAD does not need to be fired or glazed. It is available as a block or disc in shades A1, A2 and A3.
In synch with the realities of today’s practice, MouthWatch (888- 278-7574; mouthwatch.com) offers TeleDent, a mobile-friendly workflow solution that makes communication more convenient for patients, and collaboration more efficient between multidisciplinary care providers. TeleDent enables the sharing of patient data, clinica information, intraoral images and videos in real-time or via storeand-forward technology. It also enhances referrals and facilitates oral health screenings, clinician/ patient consultations, and collaboration between general practitioners and specialists across a variety of dental and medical fields.

DENTAL ENDOSCOPE FACILITATES CARE
OraVu (480-884-1552; oravu.us) offers the DeVA-1 2G Dental Vision Assistant that locates the camera sensors in the distal tip of the digital camera fiberscope so a lens coupler is not needed to focus. This new design is said to allow cleaner and crisper images and videos when viewing deep into the sulcus. The second-generation DeVA-1 digital endoscope allows periodontists and dentists to see deep into the gingival pocket without flap surgery. The system is available in two configurations: a lightweight, wheeled system that can be moved throughout the office, and portable unit that can be easily disassembled and transported where needed.
