Innovation is NOT the result of rational thought, but the process of bringing the idea to life takes rationial thinkers…
The best ideas are just simple fixes for everyday things…
Saliva Ejectors…Have you tried the new Crosstex #110-7696 White/White Saliva Ejector. Its’ innovative design offer a unique and patented rounded smooth edge with perfectly placed suction ports. This Saliva ejector optimizes fluid removal while minimizing trauma to the tissue.
Ok – that was right out of the flyer – in my terms, it won’t grab the tissue when you are sucking out the spit.
Dentapure – two ways to control the water biofilm issue. City water or bottle water problems are now solved with a product that costs $250 (Cdn) and gets replaced about once a year. Simple install, problem solved. Let’s get ‘er done!!
Surefil Flow – the bulk fillable flowable composite. Great reviews, including my own territory. High radiopacity and it fills and self levels – eliminate several steps in placing your posterior composites!
FuturaBond – a very highly rated, very fast technique for bonding. Self etch on all surfaces, and excellent reviews. As competitively priced as any bond out there. Almost 50% of my customers have switched….
Vertise Flow – another winner! A flowable that is self adhesive. You can imagine the possibilities – check out the bonding strength to dentin and enamel, as well as other substructures! Amazing.
N-Durance – I told the Septodont rep, we don’t need another composite. But at least if we get another one – it better be good! This one can solve a problem – if you are having trouble with radiopacity – this product shows up on your xrays like a high beam headlight on a starless night! I like the packagine (20 x .25gm capsules – slightly larger caps mean you get 5 gms in your 20 caps instead of the 4 gm that many manufacturers offer) The pricing is in the low end, and the intro prices bring this product up on my radar. Its’ getting excellent reviews – so I am ready to put it on the list even though I haven’t had any of my customers buy yet.
Masks – Crosstex has also introduced a line of masks that answer the question on fit. They call the masks secure fit, and are available in a variety of ASTM performance. The Blue #774-0093 offer the highest performance and are competitively priced at $16.99 per box. A comfortable, tight fitting mask can provide up to a 100x greater reduction in exposure (see Crosstex for studies)
