Cariology Education in Canadian Dental Schools: Interinstitutional Symposium Dental caries remains one of the most prevalent chronic diseases worldwide.1 Approximately 60% of Canadian children, adolescents and 96% of adults are affected by this burdensome, costly condition. Up to 12 million Canadians have unmet dental treatment needs – often related to caries - with most requiring restorative and preventive care.2 Recent studies suggest that the operative-based approach of managing dental caries continues to prevail among dental practitioners, with teeth entering the re-restorative cycle unnecessarily, or too early.3 This evidence highlights the need for more efficient approaches to bringing evidence-based caries management into practice and accepting the new paradigm. Undergraduate dental education plays an essential role in establishing the foundation of future dentists’ caries management practices and can accelerate the processes to implementation of the new caries paradigm into dental practice.4 A Core Curriculum Framework in Cariology, designed for undergraduate dental students, was recently introduced in several countries around the world.5,6 The main purpose of this framework was to develop essential evidence-based competencies related to Cariology education that could be readily adopted in dentistry education.7 Currently in Canada, there is no consensus among dental schools regarding core elements related to the Cariology curriculum.8 Thus, there is a need for the harmonization of evidence-based Cariology teaching in Canadian dental schools to ensure that dental students are appropriately trained to implement the new caries paradigm into practice. In this context, a two-day interinstitutional symposium on Cariology education in Canadian dental schools was organized and hosted by Drs. Tikhonova and Girard in Montreal, McGill University faculty of dentistry (November 2018). The overall aim of the symposium was to bring together experts in Cariology and dental education, researchers and knowledge users to develop a consensus on an evidence-informed Core Cariology Curriculum, including strategies and research agenda for enhancing its implementation in Canadian dental schools.

The symposium participants included Cariology educators from all ten Canadian dental schools, national and international educators and researchers with expertise in Cariology, curriculum implementation and reform (e.g., academic deans, dental clinical directors, clinical instructors) and research trainees. A Transformational Learning Theory framework was used,9 which helped the participants to reach an informed, objective and rational consensus about the actions needed to be in place to enhance undergraduate Cariology education in Canada.

Cariology Education in Canadian Dental Schools: Interinstitutional Symposium

Cariology Education in Canadian Dental Schools’ symposium participants, November 2018.

The first day of the symposium was dedicated to building a consensus on Core Cariology curriculum for Canadian dental schools. To begin with, the American and European Core Undergraduate Cariology Curriculums were introduced by two invited speakers, followed by a presentation about the current state of Cariology Education in Canadian dental schools.8 Drawing on the American version of Core Cariology curriculum,6 the participants worked in groups and reviewed the specific domains of the curriculum: 1. knowledge base; 2. diagnosis, risk assessment, and synthesis; clinical decision making: 3. non-surgical therapy, 4. surgical therapy; and 5. evidence-based cariology in clinical and public health practice. Collective discussion followed, focused on priorities, common learning objectives and outcomes for Cariology education in Canadian dental schools. Ultimately, the participants were able to come up with a draft consensus document of an adapted version of Core Cariology Curriculum for Canadian dental schools. This document will be reviewed again by the cariology educators from each Canadian dental school. At this time more than one representative (e.g., academic deans, clinic directors) from each dental school will be invited to review the curriculum and the final document will be published.


Dental News

The second day was dedicated to discussing the integration of the Core Cariology Curriculum in Canadian dental schools’ settings. The main principles and methodology of knowledge translation intervention were presented and followed by small group and then general discussions on the a) anticipated challenges and solutions for the Cariology curriculum integration; b) the setting up a research agenda in undergraduate Cariology education.

Cariology curriculum integration Challenges: • There is a gap between the implementation of didactic teaching and clinical cariology teaching: - Absence of cariology curriculum; - Imbalance between preventive dental care and surgical procedures; - Lack of evidence-based practice approach among cariology clinical instructors; - Shortage of well-educated staff for implementing the evidence-based cariology into educational settings; - Lack of interaction among the various dental health professionals in the context of clinical cariology teaching (e.g., clinical instructors and dental hygienists);

Meeting report

Cariology Education in Canadian Dental Schools: Interinstitutional Symposium

Future research project(s): - Lack of calibration of clinical cariology instructors in caries diagnosis and treatment planning; - Part time clinical instructors: repeated training issue; inconsistency in caries management approach; - Discontinuity of cariology training among different school years of dental education; - Inconsistent cariology follow-ups among patients; - Lack of credits related to non-operative treatment of caries in dental schools. • Dental curriculum is already overloaded in terms of didactic and clinical teaching; • Lack of educational expertise to support cariology curriculum change; • Complex/non-updated dental software used in clinical settings.

Solutions: • Support from academic deans, associate deans, clinical directors; • Building inter-university cariology education sharing platform; • Using the same nomenclature in cariology; • Building working groups to coordinate Cariology curriculum implementation in academic settings; • Reward points system for the academic staff involved in cariology curriculum implementation; • Introducing cariology curriculum from the first year of undergraduate schooling; • Involve residents/graduate dental students in the undergraduate cariology training; • Integrating evidence-based dentistry exercises in the undergraduate dental clinic; • Commencing periodic follow ups to assess caries risk and caries lesions status; • Training sessions for clinical instructors and dental students in caries lesions diagnosis; • Incorporating dental hygienists in the context of undergraduate cariology clinical training; • Integrating cariology into restorative or other “hot” topics of continuing education courses for clinicians/ clinical instructors.


Dental News

Outcomes: The outcomes of interest related to the implementation of cariology curriculum can be measured among patients, students, clinical instructors, general practitioners. • Monitoring caries progression; • Caries risk changes; • Number of non-surgical therapies; • Number of hours devoted to the didactic cariology teaching; • Knowledge and clinical decision-making process; • Patients’ perspectives on care and caries management; • Continuing education courses evaluation.

Study designs/instruments: • Developmental evaluation of educational models; • Qualitative studies (e.g., observations and interviews); • Experimental studies; • Dental charts reviews; • Surveys.

Potential challenges related to project implementation: • Clinical time: several recall appointments related to implementation of non-operative treatment strategies; • Level of communication between students and professors (both groups need to be trained); • Building the same language within the community of practice and different stakeholders; • Be organized, have leaders, have money.

Conclusion: • A preliminary consensus on an evidence-informed Core Cariology Curriculum for Canadian dental schools was achieved; • Participants agreed to continue to work collaboratively on implementing the cariology paradigm in Canadian Dental Education and practice; • The integration of Cariology paradigm in Canadian Dental Education and practice creates new opportunities for research.

Oral Hairy Leukoplakia in Patients With No Evidence of Immunosuppression Abstract Objectives: Oral hairy leukoplakia (OHL) is caused by Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) and is often associated with HIV and other immunosuppressive conditions. It is rare in HIV-negative patients, but has been reported in patients who use immune-modulating medications (e.g., cyclosporine). The objectives of this study were to determine the occurrence of OHL in HIV-negative patients and report Langerhans cell counts in these lesions. Study design: A series of 7 new cases of OHL among HIV-negative patients is described. Langerhans cells were counted using an immunoperoxidase stain for CD1a and light microscopy.

Results: The 7 patients were male, ranging in age from 26 to 69 years. Clinically, all lesions were diagnosed as leukoplakia on the lateral border of the tongue. Microscopic examination revealed hyperparakeratosis and candidiasis in some cases, acanthosis and a band-like zone with clearing of cells in the upper spinous layer, which were EBV-positive by insitu hybridization. There was a significant decrease in Langerhans cell counts in OHL patients. Conclusion: OHL can occur in HIV-negative patients.

Introduction First described in 1984, oral hairy leukoplakia (OHL) is a mucosal disease caused by infection with Epstein-Barr virus (EBV).1 OHL is a benign lesion, presenting most often as an opportunistic infection in immune-suppressed patients.2,3 OHL is the most common EBV-related lesion in patients with AIDS, and its presence in HIV-infected people is a sign of severe immunosuppression.3 It has also been described in patients who are immunosuppressed for reasons other than HIV infection.4 Only a few reports exist of OHL occurring in patients who are apparently immune competent.4-10 EBV infection of epithelial cells in OHL was first described by Greenspan et al. in 1985 11; it is now well established that EBV is the cause of OHL. Primary infection occurs in the tonsillar area, followed by latent infection of resting B-cells, with probable later reactivation and reinfection of epithelial cells.12 December 2019

Oral Hairy Leukoplakia in Patients With No Evidence of Immunosuppression

Clinically, OHL manifests as unilateral or bilateral, white or grey patches on the lateral margins, dorsal or ventral surfaces of the tongue that cannot be wiped off (Fig. 1). It exhibits a range of appearances from faintly visible white streaks to deep furrowed, “shaggy” surfaced leukoplakia.13 It also occurs occasionally at other oral and oropharyngeal sites.13-15 Microscopically, OHL features hyperparakeratosis with an irregular corrugated surface; a zone of cells showing clearing of cytoplasm and peripheral nuclear beading of chromatin in the superficial stratum spinosum; and acanthosis.13 Nuclear beading and margination of chromatin is caused by EBV replication.13 Candidiasis is often present.13 Because the presence and etiologic role of EBV nucleic acids in epithelial cells has been well documented, in-situ hybridization is a valuable tool for confirming the diagnosis of OHL and for distinguishing it from other white lesions, such as hyperkeratosis, with similar clinical and histologic features.11,16,17 OHL has been described as a clinical indicator of immunosuppression.3 Its association with HIV, AIDS, transplant recipients and other patients on immunosuppressive medication, as well as hematologic malignancies, has now been extensively documented.13,18 Although, initially, all cases of OHL in HIV-positive patients were in men who have sex with men, it has now been seen in all groups infected with HIV.13 A large number of cases of OHL have been reported in patients who were immunodeficient for reasons other than HIV infection, such as transplant recipients using immunosuppressive medication, people with asthma using steroid inhalers and patients with primary blood disorders.3,4,8,19 OHL has also been reported in conditions with an underlying immune dysfunction, including autoimmunity or hypersensitivity.4,20-23 A comprehensive list of HIV-negative patients with OHL has recently been published.4 Notably, OHL can occur in HIV-negative patients who are not taking immunosuppressive medication or therapy of any form, who are apparently immune competent and who have no apparent predisposition. Although only 8 such cases could be traced in the literature from 1989 to 2015,4,5,7-10 from this body of literature, it is clear that OHL is not limited to HIV-positive or immune-suppressed patients.

In this paper, we present a series of 7 new cases of OHL in patients who were not evidently immune suppressed. At the time of presentation, the HIV status of these patients was not known, and they were tested after the diagnosis of OHL was made. Because Langerhans cell numbers have been reported to be lower in OHL patients with AIDs,24,25 we also aimed to determine whether Langerhans cell counts in OHL patients who were HIV negative were different from counts in “normal” control tissues.24 The purpose of this paper is to highlight to dentists that OHL can occur in patients who are not immunosuppressed.

Materials and Methods Six paraffin-embedded formalin-fixed specimens were retrieved from the archives of the pathology department at the University of Western Ontario and 1 from the College of Dentistry, University of Saskatchewan, for review of the microscopic features and clinical reports. Medical histories were obtained from the pathology requisition forms and the submitting dentist. All specimens were stained with hematoxylin and eosin and periodic acid– Schiff stain (with and without diastase digestion) to determine the presence or absence of Candida albicans and glycogen. The study cases were compared with non-inflamed tongue control cases where only hyperparakeratosis presenting as a leukoplakia was present (normal controls) and HIV-positive, OHL-negative patients who presented with a leukoplakia of the lateral tongue. Epstein-Barr virus in-situ hybridization

All tissues were examined for the presence of EBV by means of in-situ hybridization using a standard laboratory protocol (EBV (EBER) PNA Probe/Fluorescein, Code Y5200, and PNA ISH Detection Kit, Code K5201, Dako, Mississauga, Ontario, Canada). Langerhans cells

The number of Langerhans cells (antigen-presenting cells) was evaluated using a routine immunoperoxidase stain for CD1a (monoclonal mouse anti-human, clone 010, Code IR069, Dako, Mississauga, Ontario, Canada). CD1a-positive cells were counted in non-overlapping,

microscopic fields at 200× original magnification and recorded per unit area (mm2) of the squamous epithelium of lesional tissue (n = 7), normal control tissue (n = 7) and HIV-positive controls (n = 9). For each case, the entire area of epithelium present was measured, and the average number of Langerhans cells per mm2 was calculated. Cell counts were made by 3 investigators blinded to the histopathologic diagnosis. Statistical analysis

A 2-tailed unpaired Student t test with Welch correction was conducted on the Langerhans cell counts, using GraphPad Prism 7 (GraphPad Software, La Jolla, Calif.). Statistical significance was set at 0.05.

All patients showed similar histopathologic findings (Fig. 2A), were HIV negative and were positive for EBV detected by in-situ hybridization (Fig. 2C). After diagnosis of OHL, patients were tested for HIV. Because OHL is regarded as pathognomonic for immunodeficiency status,3 in particular for HIV infection, is an AIDS-associated lesion,11 may be an initial indicator of HIV infection13 and also for logistical reasons, as the patients were seen at different offices in areas around the province, a second test for HIV was not completed. In all cases, the clinician reported that the lesions resolved without recrudescence or recurrence and without any additional treatment.

Ethics approval

We have read the Helsinki Declaration and have followed the guidelines in this investigation. Approval was obtained from Western University Health Science Research and Ethics Board (HSREB number 105016).

Results All 7 patients were male, median age 51 years (range 26– 69 years), and all lesions presented as a white patch on the tongue, all of which healed uneventfully. A summary of the clinical findings is presented in Table 1. All patients either had a smoking history or other medical conditions, such as diabetes, hypertension, hyperlipidemia and gout (Table 1). Patients were receiving medications for these conditions, all of which were controlled, but duration and dosage were not disclosed.

Langerhans cell counts

The median Langerhans cell count per microscopic field (at 200x original magnification) in OHL, normal control patients and HIV-positive controls was 2 (range 0–36), 6 (range 0–95) and 11 (range 0–61) respectively, considered highly significant (p < 0.001) (Table 2). Immunohistochemistry for CD1a to identify Langerhans cells is shown in Figures 2E and 2F.

Discussion Few cases of OHL have been reported in immune competent patients.4 Four patients in this case series had pre-existing medical conditions, which were controlled. For 3 of the patients reported here, only possible tobacco use and perhaps other unknown factors inducing local immunosuppression could be considered to play a role as so-called “cryptic immunopression.”13 There have been reports of OHL cases not associated with immunosuppression,5,26 but it was not clear whether local immunosuppression was absolutely ruled out. The possibility of cryptic immunosuppression as suggested by Greenspan et al.13 must be considered and perhaps more thoroughly investigated in these patients. Such investigation would include whether patients are using inhaled steroids, immune-modulating drugs,27 such as cyclosporine or azathioprine, are diabetic or have some factor creating a local immunosuppression. Chambers et

al.4 suggest that “systemic conditions leading to deficient immune system function and local factors together facilitate the development of OHL.” EBV occurs worldwide, and as many as 90–95% of adults in the United States between the ages of 35–40 years have been infected. Transmission of EBV usually occurs through intimate contact with the saliva of an infected person and is not normally transmitted through air or blood. After the initial infection has been resolved, the virus can remain latent in B cells and can cause a lytic infection in the oropharynx. Recrudescence of the viral infection is caused by immunosuppression and reactivation of the virus from its latent state.12,14 The mechanism by which EBV causes OHL has not yet been fully determined, although several possibilities exist: infection by virus present in saliva; reactivation of latent virus in tongue epithelial cells; or transmission of EBV from lymphocytes to epithelial cells during periods of relative or active immunosuppression.12,28 Three of the patients reported here had type II diabetes, which was controlled in all cases. When diabetes is not controlled, chronic immunosuppression, delayed healing and/or salivary hypofunction may result in oral mucosal disease.29 At least two studies have found increased EBV DNA and OHL in people with diabetes.4,30 Milagres et al.30 concluded that EBV infection of the lateral border of the tongue of people with minor immunodeficiency (e.g., pregnant women and people with diabetes) was considerably higher than in healthy people.

Another factor contributing to the development of OHL may be the long-term use of steroid medications. In a recent study, Chambers et al.4 concluded that 28 patients who were using inhaled steroids for asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease were at risk of developing OHL.4 Rushing et al.19 reported the occurrence of OHL in 2 patients who were on immunosuppressive therapy, concluding that it probably resulted from new or persistent infection with EBV. The mechanism appears to be a local immunosuppressive effect.4,31 The development of OHL was previously seen to arise only in patients with immunodeficiency. In a recent study, Chambers et al.4 recorded OHL lesions in some patients with normal complete blood counts who were not taking immunosuppressive medications. Although these patients had no known risk factors for OHL and were presumed to be HIV negative, they had not been tested for HIV. In these patients, other factors were considered to be contributing to the development of OHL, with 1 case concluded to be an idiopathic transitory disorder following the lesion’s spontaneous regression.4 In HIV-positive OHL patients, the number of Langerhans cells in the epithelium is generally decreased.24 Walling et al.24 suggest that EBV replication is directly responsible for

decreased Langerhans cell counts in the oral epithelium in cases of OHL. In our HIV-negative patients, the number of Langerhans cells was decreased in those with OHL lesions compared with control patients. Walling et al.24 found that EBV replication decreases oral Langerhans cell counts independent of HIV infection, which is consistent with our findings in HIV-negative patients. Our patient 6 had a higher Langerhans cell count in an area of epithelium where in-situ hybridization was negative for EBV, but clearly lower in the area of epithelium where EBV was present. In this case, Candida hyphae were also present. Generally, OHL does not require any treatment, as it tends to resolve spontaneously,4,21 as in the patients described here, whose OHL resolved after biopsy. However, recurrence is frequent in patients who are immune suppressed.13 A variety of treatment options for lesions that do not resolve have been examined or suggested in the literature. For example, podophyllin, a cytostatic plant toxin, has been suggested, although some adverse effects have been reported.32,33 A combination of 25% podophyllin and 5% acyclovir cream has been reported to be effective.34 A single case report has recommended December 2019

topical gentian violet.35 Antiviral therapy may be most useful to treat OHL, although there is a lack of consensus on the most efficacious treatment regimen. Resolution has been found to occur in most cases treated with oral acyclovir (800 mg every 6 h for 20 days), valacyclovir (1000 mg orally every 8 h for 28 days) and desciclovir (250 mg every 8 h for 14 days).36,37 Medical treatment may be particularly useful in patients who are not immune suppressed and who have persistent, recurrent or recrudescent lesions.13

In this paper, we describe 7 cases of OHL in patients who were HIV negative and not taking any immunosuppressive medication. It is important that dentists be aware that OHL can develop in those who are not immune deficient and perhaps have “cryptic” immunosuppression (e.g., local immunosuppression resulting from inhaled steroids), as suggested by Greenspan et al.13 This is important, as OHL generally develops in a site that is at high risk for epithelial dysplasia and oral squamous cell carcinoma, making accurate diagnosis essential to avoid overtreatment.

Extensive Swelling and Fistula in the Anterior Mandible: An Unresolved Case of Osteomyelitis Introduction

Dr. Hassem Geha MS Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology University of Connecticut, School of Dental Medicine, Farmington , CT

A 58-year-old white Caucasian female presented with chin swelling with a fistula of about 6mm in diameter. The lady claimed that she had undergone root scaling one month before and that after couple of days, she started noticing a swelling of her anterior chin, and after 2 weeks she noticed a fistula opening. She visited her dentist who put her under antibiotherapy for 10 days. The swelling persisted and the fistula became larger. As there were no clinical signs of caries or periodontal issues in the mandible, the dentist referred the patient to the radiology clinic to try and detect a potential etiology of the infection. The patient denied that she had had a fever and she was rather well with no medical issues.

Presentation to radiology When the patient presented to the radiology clinic, it was 29 days since she had the root scaling. A clinical examination of the teeth and periodontal tissues did not show any signs of caries and the periodontal probing was within normal limits (2-2.5 mm depth probing). The texture and colour of the gingiva and oral mucosa in the mandible were within normal limit. However, the chin swelling was obvious and the skin showed signs of redness and some purulent exudate was being discharged spontaneously. On palpation, the swelling did not seem to have a uniform consistency, it was tender on the left aspect and hard on the right aspect with no pain.

Radiology treatment A Cone Beam CT scan (0.8mm slice thickness), including the maxilla and the mandible, was acquired to evaluate the teeth and mandibular bone. Radiographically, the maxillary and mandibular teeth showed no caries and the alveolar bone level was within normal limits with just a mild marginal bone loss. There are no radiographic signs of periapical radiolucency on any of the mandibular teeth.

Extensive Swelling and Fistula in the Anterior Mandible: An Unresolved Case of Osteomyelitis

Figure 1: 3D rendering of the soft tissue of the skin showing the swelling and the fistula

Observations In the anterior mandible, there was extensive swelling of the soft tissue that corresponded to the clinical status of the patient. The external aspect of the buccal cortical plate and inferior cortex of the mandible exhibited areas of expansion and new cortical bone formation inferiorly and anteriorly that expanded the soft tissue of the skin. Detached bone fragments were also noted in the swollen soft tissue of the skin. The overall shape of the new bone formation was concave with the center of concavity in the area apical to tooth 42. The fistula track was also traced from the most external bone fragment to the skin surface and superimposed over the center of this concavity. The trabecular bone density in the mandible, mainly in the anterior mandible, was within normal limits.

Figure 3: Axial view showing the bone formation on the inferior cortex of the mandible, a sequestrum and the fistula. Note the concavity at the level of the anterior symphysis

Diagnosis and treatment The extensive bone reaction, in the anterior mandible and formation of sequestra, were consistent with osteomyelitis. The radiographic information was not conclusive as to the etiology of the infection. However, we considered that this is most likely not from a dental origin. The main reasons are that: • there was no reactive trabecular bone in the mandible, 
 • the reactive bone was only noted on the external aspect of the buccal and inferior cortex of the mandible, 
 • the alveolar bone did not also show any noted reaction
 We further noticed that the fistula extended to the level of the outer sequestrum (this might have been due to the large slice thickness we acquired the scan with.)

Dental News

Based on the clinical and radiographic data, we proposed that the infection is not likely to be from a dental origin but rather potentially from the skin.

Radiology Extensive Swelling and Fistula in the Anterior Mandible: An Unresolved Case of Osteomyelitis

The proposed diagnosis was cellulitis leading to mandibular osteomyelitis. The patient was referred back for an antibiogram and appropriate antibiotherapy. 
 As for many cases that come to our practice, this was an unresolved case because we could not identify the origin of the infection. While the radiographic signs supported a non-odontogenic origin of the infection, the clinical signs that supported cellulitis of a “skin” origin were not conclusive as we expect the patient to exhibit some symptoms such as fever in addition to the swelling and fistula.

Fugure 4: 3D rendering of the bone

Cellulitis Cellulitis is a common infection of the skin and the soft tissues underneath. It happens when bacteria enter a break in the skin and spread. The result is infection, which may cause swelling, redness, pain, or warmth. The most common bacteria responsible for cellulitis is Staphylococcus (staph). Osteomyelitis is an infection of the bone, a rare but serious condition. Bones can become infected in a number of ways: Infection in one part of the body may spread through the bloodstream into the bone, or an open fracture or surgery may expose the bone to infection. In most cases, a bacteria called Staphylococcus aureus, a type of staph bacteria, causes osteomyelitis. Some chronic conditions like diabetes may increase the risk for cellulitis osteomyelitis, but the patient denied such systemic condition.

Restorative dentistry Dr. Andreas Reiger Talheim, Germany

The Potential of VITA ENAMIC multiColor in the Esthetic Zone In the following interview, we hear from the Dentist, Dr. Andreas Reiger (Talheim, Germany), who shows us the possibilities of the VITA ENAMIC multiColor blank (VITA Zahnfabrik, Bad Säckingen, Germany) for minimally invasive esthetic reconstructions in the front. He explains this with the help of a case study of a young female patient whom he provided with four hybrid ceramic veneers with wall thicknesses of only 0.2 millimeters in the cervical area in regions 12 to 22. He also gives recommendations on what dental practices and laboratories should consider when processing hybrid ceramics.

The two polychromatic VITA ENAMIC multiColor blanks are already integrated into the finely graded layer structure. Therefore, restorations made from this material blank are already very dynamic from within. What clinical challenges did you face in this case, and what could multichromatic hybrid ceramics help solve? The young patient was dissatisfied with the esthetic appearance of her veneers on the maxillary incisors. As part of the new restoration, the labial surfaces of the incisors had to be relocated palatally in order to achieve a harmonious curve of the dental arch. Of course, I wanted to proceed in a minimally invasive manner during the follow-up preparation and not “sacrifice” any additional tooth substance.

Fig. 1: A young female patient was dissatisfied with her veneer restorations made of glass ceramic.

Why did you choose the VITA ENAMIC multiColor multichromatic hybrid ceramic blank for this patient›s restoration? For monochrome CAD/CAM blanks, tooth shade gradient and natural translucency can only be reproduced through staining.

The thin minimum layer thicknesses of the hybrid ceramics, which were only 0.2 mm in the cervical area, were particularly advantageous.

The Potential of VITA ENAMIC multiColor in the Esthetic Zone

Here’s the motto: “Less is more!� Natural teeth are dependent on their morphology and surface texture. The labial surfaces of restorations should not be completely flat. Prior to the high-gloss polish, a lifelike texture must be specifically incorporated. The finely nuanced shade and translucency profile of the VITA ENAMIC multiColor block in six layers automatically ensured a natural appearance of the restorations. As a result, an individualization with stains would be omitted.

Fig. 2: The restorations at 12, 11, 21 and 22 showed deficits at the incisal edges. In your opinion, which processing and treatment steps were decisive in this case for clinical and esthetic treatment success? The planning was extremely important in this case so that the patient and I knew in advance which result was possible. In the lab, a classic wax-up was created on prepared situation models, which I scanned in order to be able to orient myself according to the biogeneric calculation of the veneers for determining the definite length and width.

Fig. 4: The tooth axes of the incisors were irregular. The veneers had a clumsy, superimposed effect. What is the esthetic potential of the new multichrome blank for front-end restorations and what are its limitations? Especially at low thicknesses which are supported by natural hard tooth substance, the material can fully reveal its minimally invasive and esthetic potential. In addition, the restorations can be incorporated directly after polishing without crystallization, sintering, healing and individualization firings. In the case just described, the patient had a complete restoration in five hours.

Fig. 3: The arch of the teeth did not harmonize with the curve of the lips.

What should clinicians look for in the extraoral and intraoral finalization of hybrid ceramic crowns in order to achieve nearnatural, vibrant results?

SolFlex 3D printers: additive digital dentistry In different sizes available and V-Print resins for laboratories and practices An ever growing number of dental and practice laboratories are digitalising their workflows. SolFlex 3D printers have been elegantly designed by experts and are hand-crafted in Austria and Germany using only high-quality industrial grade components. Complemented by large building volumes in a true desktop size and an easy to use touch screen interface, SolFlex 3D printers are innovative robust machines that perform at the highest level. Benefiting from such high-quality design, SolFlex 3D printers perform at a noise level that is virtually unnoticeable. The SolFlex printer comes in three sizes for use in both laboratories and practices. The SolFlex 3D printer uses the tried and tested DLP (digital light processing) units. Together with the innovative highperformance UV LEDs used, it is capable of printing layer after layer with an exceptional degree of precision.

The use of a patented flexible vat (Flex Vat) results in only minimal pull-off forces. As such, it is possible to generate thinner and finer components whereby only minimal support material is required. The SolFlex 650 is designed for precise printing of large, massive objects in large quantities. To meet this requirement, the SolFlex 650 can be equipped beside the Flex-Vat with a rigid tray, the so-called PowerVat that makes it possible to use highly viscous materials and to storage material in the vat. In addition the PowerVat comes with costeffective replaceable film. Thanks to the moving lightsource, also known as Pixel Stitch technology (PST), building quality and precision will remain high regardless of where the object is placed on the platform. The lightsource moves into different positions in order to keep the same distance between the light source and the build object.

Furthermore, it is based on a solid state UVLED light source with a low level of energy consumption and a long service life. The outstanding performance stability of the light source leads to a highly reproducible printing process.

roughly the same amount of space as a conventional PC printer. The large vat volume also allows the devices to run without supervision, for example, overnight.

This becomes very important for high-precision objects like crown and bridge models or drilling templates. Thanks to the revolutionary PST, the printer boasts impressive performance in terms of resolution and construction volume. The SolFlex 3D printers are available either with or without sensor technology (Sensor Monitored Production). A laser sensor system monitors the construction process whilst also enabling optimisation of the construction speed. This guarantees a consistently high component production quality and increases print speeds up to 40 %. Weighing between 15 and 20 kg, all the SolFlex printers are very light. In the laboratory, the printer takes up

For more than 30 years, as a dental company that conducts extensive research, VOCO has been known for its expertise in the field of light-curing resins for restorative dentistry. With the increasing digitalisation in dental practices and dental laboratories, VOCO is now transposing this knowledge and experience to the field of additive production. The V-Print materials for 3D printing are developed by an interdisciplinary research team of dental technicians, dental engineers and chemists all along the digital workflow. Printing materials need to satisfy a range of different requirements in the manufacturing of digitally produced objects. The materials must support the user from printing to postprocessing right up to their use in the dental laboratory or patient. The developer teams at VOCO are well aware of the requirements on these materials thanks to their many years of expertise in the dental environment and the result is high-quality, application-friendly products “Made in Germany�. For example, in combination with V-Print printing materials, the VOCO SolFlex 3D printers allow the highly precise production of dental objects thanks to optimally coordinated processes.

Printer materials V-Print model beige is suitable for the additive production of precision components for all dental models, specifically also for the deep-drawing technique. The material allows optimal visibility of the preparation margins and prevents showing through when applying shades to restorations. V-Print model beige impresses with its smooth and scratch-resistant surface.

V-Print SG is the material of choice for highly precise dental surgical guides with which the implantation can be carried out accurately and exactly as planned. For optimal clinical use, V-Print SG can be steam sterilised at 134 °C for max. 5 minutes without any detrimental effect to the accuracy of fit. V-Print SG is classified as a class IIa medical device, is flavourless and boasts a high flexural strength.


SolFlex 3D printers: additive digital dentistry

V-Print splint – Unnatural or excessive loading of the teeth or the temporomandibular joints can result in dysfunctions. Splints are employed with the aim of restoring the optimal harmonised function of the masticatory system. With their high flexural strength and precision, splints made from V-Print splint are not only long-lasting, but also comfortable to wear. The biocompatibility is a matter of fact here, and the neutral flavour ensures it is well accepted by the patient. V-Print splint is classified as a class IIa medical device.

V-Print cast is a light-curing resin for the generative production of burn-out objects for casting and pressing processes and often forms the basis for the production of dental restorations. V-Print cast and 3D printing technology make it possible to fabricate objects which are precise and can be reproduced multiple times. V-Print cast restorations are free of impurities and can be used with commercially available phosphate-bonded investment materials. The good green strength ensures a safe removal of the printed objects from the build platform. The high edge and formstability makes reliable checking of occlusion and lateral movements possible. As is the case for all V-Print printing materials, V-Print cast is also sedimentation-stable and thus permits immediate filling of the vat and starting of the printing. There is no need for timeconsuming shaking of the material. V-Print cast even remains sedimentation-stable during longer-lasting print jobs. As is the case for all V-Print printing materials, V-Print cast also does not require post-exposure under inert gas conditions.

V-Print SG, V-Print splint and V-Print model beige are also compatible with ASIGA - MAX UV. Customers of VOCO and Asiga benefit from a wider choice and can thus act with flexibility in their daily business. At VOCO, known as an innovative and researching company you can be curious about the continuous development in the field of printing technologies and V-Print printing resins.

Press release

New center for specialty dentistry at the National University of Singapore is officially opened In a joint initiative with the National University Health System (NUHS), the Faculty of Dentistry at the National University of Singapore (NUS) officially opened its new treatment center on the Kent Ridge Campus in July. The National University Centre for Oral Health, Singapore (NUCOHS) answers the population›s growing need for access to general and specialty dental treatments. The center also offers more students the possibility of community-based education with access to high-end equipment in dentistry. For example, the NUS provides its students, among other things, with 265 Sinius treatment centers from Dentsply Sirona to use for treatments. Following an extensive planning and consultation phase carried out by its International Special Clinic Solutions business division (ISCS), Dentsply Sirona was awarded the contract to install the modern Sinius treatment centers in 2017. This was implemented together with Fondaco, Singapore and included extensive training of the teaching staff and students on how to use the Sinius centers. «In January this year, the final treatment centers for the NUCOHS left the warehouse,» explained Jörg Vogel, Vice President of the ISCS. «We are very pleased and proud that we have successfully implemented a project of unmatched size for us for one of the most renowned dental faculties in the Asia-Pacific region.»


Dental News

Dental treatments on a larger scale Since July, up to 500 patients a day can be treated at the NUCOHS. The center also offers the population a number of treatment options with advanced technologies – from general dental treatments to subsidized, highly specialized procedures. A focal point here is the growing need for dental care among older patients and those with special needs. As a result, all treatment rooms are wheelchair accessible, with some of them designed so that even patients with severely limited mobility can access the treatment centers easily. Education closely linked to community In addition to providing outstanding clinical care for its patients, the NUCOHS is primarily committed to excellence in research and education. The center is home to Singapore›s only Chair of Dentistry at the NUS.

By integrating the Chair in the center, students can be trained on a larger scale than before. Furthermore, the faculty focuses on the advantages of education within the community. Thanks to direct contact with the patients, students should already become familiar with their needs for dental care and treatments early on in their career.

Modern technologies for a high standard of education «We would like to offer our students first-class education in the field of dentistry and thus prepare them as well as possible for their practice routine,» said the Dean of Faculty, Professor Patrick F. Allen. «In addition to community-based training, we focused on innovative teaching methods and the use of high-quality technologies.»

This is reflected not only in the high standard of equipment in the treatment rooms; the NUS also offers its students the possibility of learning the basics of clinical procedures with the help of virtual reality and haptic simulation.

Injection moulding for a predictable aesthetic outcome Extensive treatment planning can be time-consuming. However, this time is often saved at the actual execution of the treatment plan. Meanwhile, the aesthetic outcome will be more predictable and the total procedure is less stressful, as part of the treatment can be done outside the mouth, in absence of the patient. A 35-year-old woman consulted the practice because she was dissatisfied with the appearance of her frontal teeth. At the clinical assessment old restorations with marginal discolouration, a devitalised, darkened tooth #11 with a noticeable crack on the incisal surface and rotations of the lateral incisors and right canine were found. (Fig. 1). Treatment options were discussed including the need for shape correction as well as slight colour adjustments. The patient refused the use of ceramics because of the treatment cost.

After internal bleaching of tooth #11 with sodium perborate, the tooth shade was similar to the adjacent teeth (Fig. 2). In the next session, the old restorations were replaced; simultaneously, the shape of the rotated teeth was corrected to achieve an ideal integration of the future veneers, which could be made of uniform thickness (Figs. 3 and 4). Essentia Dark Dentin and Medium Enamel were used. Thereafter, impressions were made. A wax-up was prepared on the model (Fig. 5). This allows to focus on proper shape and symmetry outside the mouth, which is always more practical.

It was decided to treat the teeth with G-ĂŚnial Universal Injectable composite veneers using an injection moulding technique: it renders a predictable aesthetic result and is cost- and time-effective.

It also gives an indication of how thick the applied composite layer will be; in this case, only a thin enamel replacement layer was needed. As an additional benefit, the patient needs to spend less time in the dental chair.

Injection channels were created (Fig. 7), ending at the incisal edge, so the sprue could be easily removed without altering the shape of the restoration.

The day after the first treatment session, the patient returned. The teeth were cleaned and the frontal teeth in need of restoration were slightly roughened (Fig. 8). Fig. 8

Next, they were etched with phosphoric acid (Fig. 9), leaving the typical frosty surface (Fig. 10). One by one, the teeth were isolated by separating them from the adjacent teeth using Teflon tape (Fig. 11).

G-Premio BOND was applied, left undisturbed and then strongly air-blown before polymerisation (Fig. 12a). The silicone key was seated into the mouth and G-ĂŚnial Universal Injectable (shade A2) was injected (Fig. 12b) and light-cured through it (Fig. 12c).

After removing the silicone key (Fig. 12d), composite excesses could be easily removed with a sharp blade. The EXACLEAR impression is very precise, so all the texture that was being put in the wax-up could be replicated in the final restorations (Fig. 13). The finishing procedure is simplified in this technique; since shape and texture are already established and there is no sticky oxygen inhibition layer. All that was needed was some polishing December 2019

Injection moulding is a contemporary technique in dentistry, which enables to reproduce a detailed morphology in a quick way. For this technique, a transparent matrix is used (EXACLEAR), through which the composite can be cured without leaving an oxygen inhibition layer. With the minimally invasive cavity preparation, the resultant space needs to be filled with a composite with a more flowable consistency. World-leading technologies have enabled GC to define a new benchmark in composite: G-ænial Universal Injectable, an injectable composite offering exceptional strength, polishability and aesthetics, also ideally suited for this technique. It’s a new paradigm in thinking that a composite with a more flowable consistency is actually your strongest option!

It is my distinct honor to be standing here today on behalf of my colleagues, those of us who’ve been invited to participate in this the fifth international Dental conference hosted by King Abdulaziz University. This visit of course also gives me a privileged opportunity to meet up with some of our own dental school graduate alumni, several of whom now occupy faculty positions at this university. At the time when there are many stressors in the world and even conflicts, in academia, we have an opportunity, and I would suggest even a responsibility through our shared passion and dedication to scholarship, education and research which are all aimed at increasing knowledge and improving the health of our patients and even communities and nations.

Furthermore, this conference follows soon after the milestones announcement that King Abdulaziz University faculty of dentistry has become the first in the world outside the United States to receive US Commission on Dental Accreditation (CODA) approval. That is truly momentous and I congratulate Dean Mira and all his faculty on this achievement. The implications are highly significant and we look forward to working together in the future. In conclusion, I once again congratulate the organizers for this conference and for the Royal patronage of the conference and look forward very much to participating over the next few days.

The Commission, at its Aug. 1 meeting, granted an accreditation status of Approval Without Reporting Requirements. This means that students from the university who are enrolled and successfully complete the program at the time of accreditation will be considered graduates of an accredited program. “An important reason international programs apply for CODA accreditation is to be assessed against CODA’s requirements,” said Dr. Arthur C. Jee, CODA chair. “The CODA accreditation evaluation process ensures and improves educational quality in post-secondary education. This likewise improves and consistently elevates educational standards. We congratulate and look forward to working with the international predoctoral dental education program sponsored by the King Abdulaziz University, and their promotion of continuous quality and improvement of their program through the Commission’s accreditation process.”

Prof. Abdulghani Mira Dean of the Dental School at King Abdulaziz University

The Commission on Dental Accreditation assesses the application for accreditation at stage four, using the same policies, procedures and accreditation standards that are in place for U.S.-based programs. A CODA accreditation does not mean graduates from King Abdulaziz University are licensed to practice dentistry in the U.S. Licensure for a graduate of any program accredited by CODA is still dictated by individual states practice acts. The final authority on licensure requirements rests with the individual state dental boards or similar agency.

Dr. Lauro Medrano-Saldaña presiding the celebrity luncheon The Greater New York Dental Meeting took place during the holiday season for its 95th annual session. The GNYDM is the largest and most popular Dental Meeting, Exposition and Congress in the United States. The Greater New York Dental Meeting participates in the U.S. Department of Commerce International Buyer Program, which supports the international purchase of U.S. exported products. This program includes on-site multilingual personnel assistance to facilitate international purchases of dental products and equipment. Worldrenowned clinicians addressed a vast array of topics ranging from clinical dentistry to the latest information and research. Topics were addressed in a wide variety of formats including “live” dental procedures, hands-on workshops, seminars, essays, panel discussions and scientific poster sessions. As cutting-edge knowledge and information expands yearly, the GNYDM provided educational programs that reflect the most relevant and indemand topics in Dentistry. One of the highlights this year was the “3D Printing & Digital Dentistry Conference.” and the “World Implant Expo.” Developed in partnership with the American Academy of Implant Dentistry, the International Congress of Implantologists and the European Academy of Osseointegration, this Expo brought together the best and brightest implant dentists from around the world to lecture and provide workshops at the Meeting. Also returning for the third year is the “Global Orthodontic Conference,” as well as the Dental Laboratory Technician 4-day event and the second annual “Pediatric Dentistry Summit” and the “Airway Health Summit”. There is no place quite like New York City to experience the excitement of the holiday season.

Incredible inside. Incredible outside. Ready for the future with the new Lara sterilizer Be prepared for today and for tomorrow – with the new Lara sterilizer from W&H, users not only have state-of-theart today, but additional high-tech for the future. Equipped with fast cycle times and a safe documentation system, Lara simplifies and speeds up the sterilization process. Lara offers so much more: with W&H´s new invented activation code system, users can easily upgrade additional features. This allows Lara to be easily adapted to individual and future requirements of the practice.

Incredibly fast, incredibly easy to use

Enhanced functionality by easy upgrade

From inside a full power package, from the outside a real eye-catcher: The new Lara convinces with its smooth surfaces and its colour touchscreen, which allows fast and intuitive navigation through the menu structure. The clear aim of the operating concept is to save time in order to have more time available for the treatment of patients. Even the standard version of Lara is equipped with one of the fastest cycle-times of its class.

Depending on future requirements of the practice or regulatory needs, the new Lara sterilizer can be easily customised and upgraded by the activation code system. This allows users to activate even more speed and an extended documentation. The activation codes and functions at a glance:

To meet the demand for complete traceability, a high capacity USB drive automatically records the cycle reports throughout Lara´s entire service life. Users benefit from control and safety during instrument reprocessing. Optionally available: a label and cycle report printer, which offer printed documentation without additional computer or software. An automatic water filling valve provides additional efficiency: it allows connection to a demineralization system. This means manual filling and draining are no longer required. Activation Code “Performance”: even faster cycle times by upgrading to Eco Dry +, which automatically adapts the drying time to the mass of load. Saving time and energy. Activation Code “Fast Cycle”: a type S fast cycle whenever needed, the fast cycle allows sterilization of unwrapped instruments in just 20 minutes. Activation Code “Traceability”: this functionality enables the customisation of the sterilizer to trace back to the person who initiated the sterilization cycle. Activation “All-in-one”: this code activates all functions mentioned above at once.

Whatever happens in the future – with Lara, you are well-prepared! In addition to the standard Lara functionalities with the high level of W&H quality, the new activation code system offers the opportunity to prepare today for tomorrow’s requirements. This gives dental practices more flexibility and, above all, the certainty that they are optimally equipped for all upcoming tasks. website:

and fulfilling career is a component of our happiness but maintaining relationships with peers and colleagues enhance social inclusion and promotes a culture of wellbeing. Connections to others around you and your life provides support in society, engagement and happiness. Whether we are busy or feeling blue, we have to promise ourselves to make time for others, by limiting work hours and investing in cultivating relationships through social activities. This can either be a network of close friends, like alumni friends we know or people we would like to know better or family members with the same value systems and traditions. Friendships improve our health and well-being because they help us feel supported and understood. Put this at the top of your to-do list for 2020.

EVO.15 The world’s safest contra-angle, developed by Bien-Air Dental In response to public health authorities’ growing concern over patient burns caused by rotary dental instruments, Swiss medical technologies company Bien-Air Dental has developed the EVO.15, the safest contra-angle on the market today. In procedures involving contra-angles, the slightest contact between the instrument’s push-button and the inside of the patient’s cheek may cause the instrument to overheat, resulting in possible burn injuries. The most severe cases have caused third-degree burns requiring reconstructive surgery, and potentially exposing the practitioner to lengthy legal action. Equipped with patented CoolTouch+™ heat-arresting technology, the EVO.15 is the only contra-angle proven never to exceed human body temperature. Additionally, the EVO.15 features a considerably smaller and lighter shockproof head and premieres technological innovations ranging from a new spray/ lighting system to an improved bur-locking system. Committed to safety, the EVO.15 gives progressive dental practitioners peace of mind in all situations.

New Chiropro Pure simplicity Designed to simplify the fitting of implants, the New Chiropro has been fully developed around a single philosophy: simplicity. A single control button allows you to control the entire system. Simply turn the button to navigate via the menus and adjust the settings, and press it to confirm the selected value. Moreover, the control button the only point of contact between dentists and the unit during procedures - can be easily removed and sterilised to simplify maintenance. Thanks to its clear and concise interface, the New Chiropro plainly displays all the information required for procedures to go smoothly: type of instrument, speed, torque, irrigation flow and direction of rotation. Pre-set operating sequences and the option to modify settings based on patients’ dental features also make the New Chiropro easier to use. Dental News

Dental Unit Waterline (DUWL) Treatment Providing safe and compliant dental water is critical to implementing and maintaining effective infection control protocols. Exposure to poor water quality can pose a health risk for patients and clinicians. Crosstex offers a safe and reliable option for Dental Unit Waterline (DUWL) treatment to protect your patients, staff and practice: The DentaPure™ Cartridge. EPA approved DentaPure Cartridges are available for independent water bottles and dental units plumbed directly to city water. The cartridges contain iodinated resin beads. As water flows through during a typical treatment, it pulls 2–6

ppm of atomic isotopes of non-allergenic elemental iodine (I2) from the resin into the water stream. The elemental iodine interacts with the bacteria in the water, controlling it. The DentaPure Cartridge is effective for one-year, or 240L of water if usage records are kept. Your waterline treatment protocol becomes a simple annual routine.

All claims made when used with potable water.


Sterile Procedure Packs

Our Job, Your Solutions Clinical point of view

Primescan Enjoy the scan With its completely new, patent pending digital impressioning technology the new intraoral scanner Primescan enables highprecision digital impressions to be taken of the entire jaw. These scans present numerous possibilities for users. Primescan was designed for various digital workflows – with the laboratory directly in the practice, with CEREC or in cooperation with external partners. Validated interfaces noticeably simplify the process, offering dentists the flexibility they desire. With Primescan, Dentsply Sirona introduces an intraoral scanner to the market, that has significant product features, achieves outstanding results and takes digital impressioning to a higher level of quality. Speed: With Primescan, you can produce scans amazingly fast. You can capture an entire upper jaw in well under 30 seconds, and a full jaw scan in less than a minute. During the scanning process, the dynamic lens completes more than 10 movements per second, thereby enabling the “Dynamic Depth Scan.” The result is more than 1 million 3-D points per second. This is thanks to Intelligent Processing, which filters, processes and compresses the high volume of data so that models can be calculated faster. Accuracy: The high-precision Smart Pixel Sensor captures the data at an extremely high resolution and assesses the contrast in each pixel. For every 3-D image, Primescan consolidates more than 50,000 images per second, thereby offering a level of scanning precision that has never been achieved before. A new technology, for which a patent application has been submitted, in the form of optical high frequency analysis is used to calculate the 3-D points, resulting in an increased level of accuracy. This is further supported by an optical design that has been optimised for the measuring principle used and by the mechanical robustness of the optics. Easy to use: Primescan enables a flexible, intuitive and very simple scan procedure, enabling faster access to tooth surfaces without the need for significant tilting. The captured images are calculated in a flash and put together without any visible scan interruptions. A great feeling: Primescan is an intraoral scanner that can be subjected to all necessary hygienic reprocessing (wipe disinfection, autoclaving, hot air sterilisation, high-level disinfection). This is made possible by three sleeve concepts (stainless steel sleeve, stainless steel sleeve with disposable window, disposable sleeves).

10 years of Icon

Resin infiltration therapy with additional possibilities Introduced at the IDS in 2009, resin infiltration with DMG’s Icon is now well-established as a microinvasive treatment option. The procedure was originally developed as a treatment without drilling for initial proximal caries using a highly fluid resin. The additional option of successfully treating cariogenic white spots on smooth surfaces was soon recognized and confirmed by studies. Meanwhile, considerable progress has been made.

Wider treatment spectrum: including fluorosis and trauma Scientific evidence supports the use of resin infiltration therapy for mild to moderate fluorosis. Many fluorosis patients have already had lesions treated esthetically and safely with Icon. Also, the treatment of traumatic and idiopathic lesions is now officially indicated. In addition, resin infiltration treatment has already been successful in treating many cases of MIH. Scientific confirmation studies are still pending.

After this initial success, one technical highlight followed the other hard on the heels. The first Synea generation cast its spell over dentists with its elegance and monobloc design in 1998.

W&H was the first manufacturer in the dental industry to integrate the LED into a turbine head. Finally, the light was where it was needed the most – close to the treatment site. But that wasn’t enough. With its 5x Ring LED+, integrated into the small head of the Synea Vision turbine, W&H underlined its position as the technology leader once again in 2014 and offered dentists a shadow-free view of the treatment site. With W&H’s LED innovations, dentists benefit not only from improved light conditions, but also from reliable functionality even after multiple hygienic reprocessing such as sterilization.

A must-have for every dentist With the sterilizable 5x Ring LED+, integrated in the small head of the Synea Vision turbine, W&H underlined its position as the technology leader in 2014. Dentists benefit from a shadow-free view of the treatment field.

Synea – a synonym for top quality “Made in Austria” meets the high standards placed on dental preparations. W&H has proven with innovative highlights that the company is a master of its craft and even capable of rendering the impossible possible. The focus is always on advancing the dentist’s work. Perfect combination of revolutionary technology and high quality service has allowed W&H as a reliable partner to set new standards in dental practices around the world. Synea products are and always have been the must-have for every user.

The head of the red contra-angle handpiece grew smaller with each of the three Synea generations. Today, compact dimensions ensure improved flexibility within the limited confines of the oral cavity. Dental News
