Carestream Dental Launches New ‘TechCheck’ Promotion to Diagnose Outdated Equipment and Offers Treatment Plans for Practices


ATLANTA—Sometimes,
even dental practices need to be diagnosed—for broken or outdated
technology, that is. Starting now through early December, Carestream
Dental’s new TechCheck promotion gives practices the chance to trade in
or upgrade their existing equipment, ensuring that doctors are treating
their patients with the most up-to-date technology available.

The
TechCheck, which runs until Dec. 19, includes a free consultation to
identify opportunities for technological improvements, such as switching
from desktop-based to cloud-hosted practice management software or
updating from 2D to 3D imaging. Practices will then have the option to
upgrade or trade in their current technology for the latest offerings
from Carestream Dental, including special savings of up to $25,000.

“When
equipment is up-to-date, practices can improve patient diagnosis,
optimize workflow, ensure they are HIPAA-compliant, and improve
technology integration options,” David Roudergues, director of U.S.
dental equipment, Carestream Dental, said. “The TechCheck lets doctors
take care of their patients, while Carestream Dental takes care of their
technology.”

More
importantly, doctors would be well advised to understand the
implications of using older models that are compatible only with Windows
XP, as they are more susceptible to security breaches and HIPAA
violations that could require disclosure to all patients. Working with
the most recent equipment, or at least equipment that can be easily
updated, is also important when it comes to HIPAA-compliance. Practices
should be aware of whether their office complies with the latest
requirements as well as if systems can be updated or if replacements are
necessary.

“Even
patients can tell you how quickly technology changes these days—just
think of their smartphones—and dental technology is no different,”
Roudergues said. “A perfect example is the transition from 2D to 3D
imaging and, more recently, the move to digital impressions. These
advances took place just within the last 10 years; it can be exhausting
to keep up with it all. A TechCheck consultation removes the guesswork
and helps a practice determine whether there are better, more current
equipment options available to them.”

Some
of the technology that Carestream Dental will be evaluating includes
extraoral imaging systems, CAD/CAM systems, intraoral sensors and
practice management software, to name just a few.

Carestream
Dental also provides resources such as checklists and self-assessments
for   knowing when to upgrade on its blog, the Digital Image Stream, at www.carestreamdentalblog.com. For more information about Carestream Dental’s TechCheck or to schedule a consultation, visit www.carestreamdental.com/techcheck.

Brasseler USA® Introduces the Forza V3 Piezo Ultrasonic System


Stunning LED illumination, slim handpiece design and user-friendly interface all in a compact, space-saving unit

SAVANNAH, GA (September 5, 2014) – Brasseler USA®, a leading manufacturer of quality instrumentation, is pleased to unveil the Forza V3 Piezo Ultrasonic System.   Featuring stunning LED illumination, a slim handpiece design, and an intuitive interface, the Forza V3 provides users a long list of features and benefits all in one compact, space-saving unit.

Available in both fiber optic and non-fiber optic models, the Forza V3 is easily installed in any dental operatory. With a wide range of piezo ultrasonic tips available, the Forza V3 is ideal for a variety of clinical procedures including restorative, hygiene, periodontal, general scaling, implant maintenance and endodontic surgery.

The Forza V3 Piezo Ultrasonic System operates in a linear motion, providing less sensitivity for patients. Moreover, the Forza V3 requires less water to control heat and operates with little to no vibration, increasing overall tactile feel.

“One of the most impressive features incorporated into the Forza V3 is the lightweight, slim handpiece,” according to Ronnie Hiers, Product Manager at Brasseler USA.  “Traditionally, piezo users had to compromise on weight and size if they wanted to include fiber optics. With the Forza V3, not only are users provided the brightness and natural daylight color of an LED, but they also gain superior access and visibility from the ultra-thin design.”

The Forza V3 is equipped with an exclusive Piezo Accelerator Mode that instinctively provides additional power at the most critical moments when more power is needed. Continuously activated, the Piezo Accelerator Mode provides reliable power and stable frequency output.

Dr. Alex Fleury, an endodontist located in Dallas, Texas, attested to the Forza V3’s superior performance, “One word: Fantastic! LED light is great and especially useful for those not using a microscope. The power is excellent, and overall, the Forza V3 is a great machine; indispensable for my line of work.”  

Other key features of the Forza V3 include:

•    Weighing in at only 33 grams, the slim, ergonomic design of the Forza V3 handpiece provides excellent access while reducing hand fatigue.
•    Dual LED fiber optics deliver clearer vision and maximum visibility.
•    A control unit holder provides multiple mounting options and a sliding bracket feature that allows the unit to be conveniently stored away when not in use.
•    Easy power and water adjustment knobs on a simple-to-operate control panel.
•    Over 80 piezo tips to choose from for a variety of clinical applications.

Forum Offered at CDA North Gives Dentists a New Take on Technology Options

SAN FRANCISCO—A corporate forum at CDA Presents in San Francisco asks general practitioners to consider cone beam computed tomography (CBCT).
The
forum takes place 3:00-5:00 p.m., Friday, Sept. 5. Two Continuing
Education (CE) credits are available to attendees of the course.

“You
cannot treat what you cannot see,” Cohenca, the course instructor,
said. “CBCT provides us with a more accurate diagnosis and treatment
strategy, thus, increasing successful outcomes and avoiding further
complications.” 

Although
CBCT technology has been available to dentists since the early
2000s—and has experienced a massive surge in popularity over recent
years—most general dentists are still not trained to understand its
benefits, indications and interpretation. 

CBCT
scans provide a complete visual image covering multiple planes,
including axial, coronal and sagittal. They offer several benefits over
both 2D and computed tomography (CT) imaging, such as higher-resolution
images; more accurate linear measurements; faster acquisition times,
which reduce the chance for patient movement and retakes; lower
radiation; and even user-friendly software.

“A
single radiograph is a two dimensional shadow of a three dimensional
object,” Cohenca said. “Mathematically, that means we only see 66
percent of the actual anatomy. A CBCT, however, produces a
three-dimensional digital image while providing significantly less
radiation to our patients.”

These
3D digital images also serve as an excellent tool when discussing
treatment options with patients. It is much easier to convince a patient
to accept a treatment plan when the doctor is able to reveal an issue
on a 3D image that actually looks like the patient’s mouth rather than a
flat, 2D image with distortion and overlap.

Cohenca
serves as professor of endodontics and pediatric dentistry at the
University of Washington and Seattle Children’s Hospital. He is a
Diplomate of the American Board of Endodontics and was one of the
pioneers in the use of CBCT technology.
