New products are introduced at AAE meeting in Orlando
ORLANDO, FL, USA: Many companies launched new products at the 2009 Annual Session of the American Association of Endodontists. The meeting, which was held here 29 April through 2 May, showcased the products and services of dozens of exhibiting companies.
Many attendees visited the SybronEndo booth to investigate the company’s Twisted Files, which are now available in new sizes. There was also a great deal of interest in the RealSeal One bonded obturation system available from Sybron.
Discus Dental Smart Endodontics introduced its LightSpeedCRX and LightSpeedMRX instruments, which are designed to clean and shape the coronal third and middle third of the canal. These new files complement the LightSpeedLSX files, which are used for the apical third. Discus also unveiled its new HotTip cordless warm vertical compaction device, which is used along with the HotShot for obturation of the canal.
Of course, before the canal can be cleaned, shaped and filled, the practitioner needs to see what he or she is up against. Companies offering magnification equipment showcased the latest in microscopes and loupes. Seiler Precision Microscopes offered demonstrations on the prototype for a brand new model of scope with many new features and benefits.
A new anesthetic delivery device — the Anesto — was unveiled by Innovadontics, a distributor of products manufactured by W&H. Designed to be quick and easy, the Anesto allows anesthetic to be delivered first to the soft tissue and then to hard tissue. The developer of Anesto, Dr Hamid Abedi, was on hand to offer demonstrations.
