Groundbreaking REVEAL technology from Designs for Vision, Bohemia, New York, adds a new dimension in clinical practice. This innovative system features a blue excitation headlight with specially filtered eyewear that provides hands-free fluorescence visualization in real time. The narrow spectrum excitation headlight stimulates the byproducts of bacteria associated with caries, calculus, and periodontal conditions, causing them to emit endogenous fluorescence, while the eyewear allows clear, vibrant visualization. Designs for Vision’s fluorescence guided system helps clinicians identify and differentiate between active and arrested caries lesions. In addition, it facilitates detection and treatment of supra- and subgingival calculus, as well as 
accumulations of perio-active bacteria. 800-345-4009.

Billed by iSonic, Chicago, as the world’s smallest commercial ultrasonic cleaner with a stack transducer, the new desktop-style DS310 accommodates a standard 9-ounce polyethylene terephthalate (PET) cup to hold patients’ dentures and other appliances for in-office cleaning.

Burs and files can also be cleaned in the integrated stainless steel beaker or, alternately, placed in a bur/file guard for cleaning. In addition, an optional plastic strainer attaches to the beaker for easy retrieval of items after processing. Featuring a digital timer, touch-sensing controls, and a color LED display, the iSonic DS310 has an 0.8-liter tank and a powerful 55-watt transducer that provides a level of cleaning intensity. 847-850-0404.


Cranberry, Pinole, California, introduces Bio Nitrile Biodegradable Nitrile Powder Free Examination Gloves. These gloves are designed to meet the rising demand for environmentally sustainable and eco-friendly products. The biodegradable properties of the glove are attributed to a unique additive that induces microbial activity upon introduction to the landfill, resulting in the material breaking down up to 90% within a mere 1.5 years. Despite being biodegradable, the gloves pass and exceed ASTM standards for tensile strength and force at break. Cranberry Bio Nitrile gloves offer eco-friendly benefits without compromising on protection or durability, making them suitable for examination use in dental and medical settings. 707-553-6190.


The new Teeth Whitening Trays from BURST, Covina, California, are described as a powerful at-home whitening treatment created with the support of hundreds of members from BURST’s community of more than 35,000 oral health professionals. BURST says this collaborative input ensures the trays are effective, yet gentle enough for even the most sensitive patients. Designed for safe and easy use, the trays combine 12.5% hydrogen peroxide with acidity-lowering potassium hydroxide and soothing xylitol to achieve professional-grade bleaching results. Each tray comes prefilled to treat hard-to-reach areas with no guesswork, molding or impressions — just simple 15-minute treatments for significantly whiter teeth after the recommended 7-day course of treatment. The trays are vegan and cruelty-free, and the formula contains no parabens, phthalates, sulfates, major allergens, artificial sweeteners, flavors, or colors.

Philips, Stamford, Connecticut, has unveiled its Sonicare Cordless Power Flosser, an interdental cleaning aid that provides a simple and effective way to improve gingival health by removing up to 99.9% of plaque. The device was developed for patients who need to establish a habit of flossing and are looking for an effective, consistent, and convenient self-care solution. Compared to its tabletop predecessor, the Philips Sonicare Cordless Power Flosser offers a compact format that facilitates seamless integration into a patient’s oral hygiene routine. It utilizes Quad Stream technology, a unique cross-shaped nozzle that creates four wide streams that are reportedly 150% more effective than floss. The flosser, which provides a thorough clean interproximally and along the gingival margin, also features Pulse Wave technology that provides brief pauses in the cleaning pulsations to prompt patients to glide the nozzle to the next interproximal space to ensure a whole-mouth clean. 800-422-9448.
