3D Simulation Tool
3Shape’s Treatment Simulator can now be used with Ivoclar Vivadent’s IvoSmile augmented reality technology to deliver visually engaging treatment presentations during consultations, according to the companies. A live iPhone or iPad patient image can be combined with a TRIOS-based treatment simulation to create a “virtual mirror” using IvoSmile. The process allows patients to see potential results from multiple angles in three-dimensional displays of their own faces.

Adhesive Removal Kit
Komet has expanded its Deep Purple Diamond bur line to include Smoozies for fast and easy adhesive removal after debonding. A tungsten carbide eraser removes the adhesive left after bracket removal, and rubber polishers can then be used to complete the process. Both flame- and cup-shaped Smoozies are gentle on the enamel and leave smooth, mark-free teeth, according to the manufacturer. Each kit includes four carbides and four erasers in a plastic bur block.
