Dr. Practice by DentalEZ

We recently introduced the latest utility room offering at CDA Anaheim. The new RAMVAC® Badger LF is an efficient, powerful, LubeFree dry vacuum system that is an alternative to traditional vacuum units, providing simple set-up and requiring minimal maintenance and space.

The Badger LF is a dry vacuum system that is perfect for brand-new dental offices, or that easily replaces traditional water ring pumps or aging dry vacuum units. Designed for single or multiple users, the Badger LF is flexible and compact, and effortlessly connects to pre-existing plumbing, making installation a breeze. The tank and control unit are directly integrated into the Badger LF system, resulting in a small, space-saving design.  

The Badger LF’s highly efficient displacement pump maintains consistent suction regardless of the number of units in use, ensuring smooth operation at all times. Moreover, the waterless vacuum system reduces costly water and sewer bills and its LubeFree operation reduces the burden of regular maintenance tasks on dentists and their staff. From multi-user group practices to budget-conscious small practices, the Badger LF is an eco-friendly choice.

The open frame design of the Badger LF provides cool unit operation and easy maintenance. There are no traps to clean or maintain and the system provides quiet operation. The Badger LF also delivers worry-free routine maintenance reminders, and is equipped with a self-diagnosing control system that alerts the user of possible mechanical issues. In addition, the Badger LF is protected by a 2 year/4,000 hour (whichever comes first) limited product warranty & 5 year/10,000 hour (whichever comes first) pump warranty. Like all RAMVAC products, the new Badger LF is exclusively manufactured in an ISO-certified facility.

The Badger LF is available in 2 models: Badger LF1 for 1-2 HVE equivalent users and the Badger LF2 for 2-3 HVE equivalent users. To schedule a Badger LF demo, please visit www.dentalez.com/BadgerLF

StarDental® introduced the newest member of the 430 high-speed handpiece family at CDA Anaheim, the 430 Torque. Available in various configurations, the 430 Torque delivers freedom of choice and unprecedented power.

Ergonomically designed with rugged 100% stainless steel construction, the 430 Torque is outfitted with an attractive satin finish, resulting in a stylish yet durable handpiece. The 430 Torque is available with or without fiber optics, and either a lubricated version or LubeFree version that provides dental practices with substantial cost and time savings.  

The 430 Torque offers 27 watts of power – feel the difference! An independent test by The Dental Advisor shows the 430 Torque has the highest watts of power, of the handpieces tested, at 27 watts* and maximum power output. The double bucket rotor design and dual air control maximizes airflow to the turbine, allowing the 430 Torque to deliver powerful performance for every procedure.

The coaxial water spray optimizes the direction of the water pressure in order to thoroughly cool the bur and flush the working area, keeping the instrument, as well as the operatory site, cool and clear. Moreover, a unique vortex washer design minimizes harmful debris and “suck back” into the housing of the handpiece, inhibiting unwanted buildup that leads to eventual turbine engine damage. 

The small head design of the 430 Torque provides superior oral accessibility and operatory field visibility, and the high power enables fast and precise removal of tooth surface and amalgam. What’s more, the low noise level of the 430 Torque reduces the possibility of auditory damage and provides a more pleasant patient experience.

The balanced design and angled head of the 430 Torque allows for a neutral wrist position, an important factor in minimizing hand fatigue. The dual beam glass design prevents shadowing in front of the bur to assure an unobstructed, clear view regardless of handpiece positioning or lighting.

StarDental supports MDOT

Written by

The Montana Dental Outreach Team (MDOT) is a non-profit humanitarian aid group that supplies free dental care for those in need. For the past ten years, MDOT has worked to better the lives of those in Eastern Europe, Central and South America, and Haiti.

Dr. Bartoletti, founder of MDOT, believes strongly that a true and genuine need to help others is where we can find meaning in our lives. And not only does MDOT service those in abject poverty, it also provides college students with the opportunity for service, and to be mentored by dentists and trained aid workers.

DentalEZ® is proud to share that StarDental® is a continued supporter of MDOT. This year, StarDental provided Titan® Blis-sonic Scalers to Dr. Bartoletti and his team heading to Sister Stan's Orphanage in Ghana. Star's Titan® Blis-sonic Scalers cleaned over 600 peoples teeth of which 98% never had any dental work done before. It's something DentalEZ is extremely proud of.

We would like to thank Dr. Bartoletti for his continued service in making the world a better place for all. To learn more about MDOT.

Utah Dental Conference

Written by

DentalEZ® is excited to announce our supporting of Dr. Harvey Levy in his participation courses at the Utah Dental Conference. Dr. Harvey Levy is renowned in the industry for his practice of general and hospital dentistry, specifically in the special-needs market.

Organizing his participation courses into eight workstations, Dr. Levy's teaching philosophy is based on the Confucian directive: “Tell me and I will forget; show me and I may remember; involve me and I will understand.” Attendees will be thrown into the thick of the action practicing best restraint practices on each other, while learning how to be more accessible to handicapped patients.

At Dr. Levy's practice in Maryland, he treats a large number of wheelchair and gurney-bound patients. For the patients who need to be transferred into a dental chair, Dr. Levy uses our J-chairs® with Air glide. The flexibility of movement allowed by Air glide creates many options for accessibility. In Dr. Levy's workshop, you will see J-chairs with Air glide sliding in action across a treatment room. Check out Air glide technology in action here.

DentalEZ will have a rep on hand at Dr. Levy's course at Utah Dental Conference to demonstrate Air glide technology and teach best practices in oral screening with Identafi. Identafi uses three different colored lights to search out any abnormal soft tissue in a person's mouth. Identafi is the most efficient way to enhance visuals of abnormalities that the naked eye might not be able to see. Learn more about Identafi.


Dr. Levy's participation workshop will be held at the Utah Dental Conference on Thursday, April 21 from 2-4pm. We hope to see you at Utah Dental Conference. Be sure to visit our booth (#523) and share your thoughts below!

April is Oral Cancer Awareness Month

Written by

Oral cancer kills nearly one person every hour of every day of the year. Of the people newly diagnosed, only about 60% will live longer than 5 years. And among those survivors, most suffer long-term problems such as severe facial disfigurement or difficulties eating and speaking. The death rate associated with oral cancer remains high due to the cancer being routinely discovered late in its development. There will be approximately 43,250 people in the U.S. diagnosed with oral cancer this year. Even worse, awareness in the public is extremely low. This is the purpose of dedicating April to Oral Cancer Awareness.

There are many parts of the oral cavity. The lips, cheek lining, gums, tongue, and throat all pertain to the oral cavity. Because of the severity of oral cancer, it is important to understand all the areas of vulnerability. HPV is the leading cause of Oral Cancer while tobacco use of any kind and heavy alcohol consumption greatly increase your risk for oral cancer. The fastest growing segment of oral cancer patients is young healthy non-smoking individuals due to the connection to the HPV virus. Poor diet lacking fruits and vegetables can also lead to oral cancer contraction, while long exposure to the sun puts your lips at risk. Oral cancer is not just limited to the people living these lifestyles. It can happen to anyone, even the healthiest adults. 

Oral screening is the best way to combat oral cancer. Performed by a dentist or primary care physician, oral screening is quick and painless. Traditionally done with gauze or air syringes, new technologies such as the Identafi have made oral screening quicker and more accurate. Utilizing Multi-Spectral Fluorescence and Reflectance technology, Identafi enhances visuals of abnormalities in the mouth that may not be seen with the naked eye.

 

 

Identafi by StarDental

The Identafi uses white, violet, and amber wavelengths of light to excite oral tissue in distinct and unique ways. As a result, biochemical changes can be monitored with fluorescence, while morphological changes can be monitored with reflectance. The combined system of fluorescence and reflectance uses the body's natural tissue properties as an adjunctive tool for oral mucosal examination. Conventional examination of tissue is performed using a highly concentrated white light.

Wearing reusable Identafi filtered eyewear to enhance visual effects and allow transmission of reflected light, the health professional then switches to violet for a second observation. The clinician's photosensitive glasses block the violet excitation light and allow the observance of the tissues natural fluorescence. Violet light enhances normal tissue's natural fluorescence; however, suspicious tissue appears dark because of its loss of fluorescence.

When suspect abnormalities are present the selector is switched to amber light, which enhances normal tissue's reflectance properties so the clinician may directly observe the difference between normal and abnormal tissue's vasculature. This independent view of vascular architecture may assist in the assessment of confounders when screening for oral cancer.

 

Studies indicate abnormal tissue has a diffuse vasculature, where normal tissue vasculature is clearly defined. The combination of all three Multi-Spectral wavelengths provides the clinician with more visual information, improved results over direct visual exam alone and increased confidence for recommending biopsies.
