Designed to allow dentists to capture and display digital images from inside a patient’s mouth, intra-oral cameras are a valuable tool for patient education and case documentation. Patients do not always accept treatment they cannot understand, but an intra-oral camera allows them to see what dentists see.A problem such as a fractured tooth can be easier to spot and impossible to ignore, when it is magnified on a computer monitor or TV screen. Shaped like a small wand, many dental intraoral cameras are highly portable and easily connect to a computer through wifi, via USB or via a docking station. Most commonly equipped with LEDs, these digital cameras can capture images without the need for external lighting.

Alginate Mixer reportedly produces a consistently smooth, creamy, bubble-free mix and eliminates hand mixing.
Dental sterilizers are imperative to a dental practice. Also referred to as autoclaves, dental sterilizers use steam – at temperatures reaching 270°F to completely sterilize instruments and equipment.This steam sterilization of various surgical tools and dental instruments is efficient and safe. Designed for safety as well as infection control, sterilizers lock while in use and unlock when instruments are sterile and dry. Depending on what is being sterilized an autoclave cycle can range from 6 to 30 minutes. While steam is a common method for dental instrument sterilization, some dental sterilizers use dry heat and eliminate moisture from the process. Dental autoclaves and sterilizers may be among the most used equipment in a dental practice.

With a simple touch of a button, degassing of the solution, i.e. air entrapments which hinder the cleaning process, will disappear.Note that degassing is required every time a new solution is added. A comprehensive range of accessories and BioSonic cleaning solutions provide the user with flexibility to efficiently clean and disinfect instruments, prostheses and other items throughout the dental practice.
What is cold sterilization? Cold sterilisation is a method of sterilization that requires the reusable semi-critical items to be immersed in an EPA-approved liquid chemicals. These chemicals can include glutaraldehydes, peracetic acid, and hydrogen peroxide-based solutions. Single-use items can never be cold sterilized. They are not manufactured to be sterilized and may resist the process because of the materials with which they are made.
