Opalescence Trèswhite Supreme by Ultradent - You may have looked at this product before, but this is a totally new and improved bleaching tray that makes the whole bleaching process very quick and easy for your patients. I have always liked the results with the Opalescence line of products over the years, so I have come to trust them. Dr. Dan Fisher’s idea to combine the time-tested power of the Opalescence gel with the simplicity of the Trèswhite delivery system is truly innovative. With Opalescence Trèswhite Supreme, you’ll get effective, reliable whitening with ease, because the convenient trays are prefilled with Opalescence PF gel, which provides outstanding whitening with less sensitivity while rebuilding enamel and preventing decay. >The trays are loaded with 10% hydrogen peroxide for faster results, now with great new flavors. The tray design is more comfortable because it quickly and automatically aligns and positions the soft, thin bleaching tray. The material adapts to fit any smile, so your patient will hardly know it’s there. This product does not require models or tray fabrication. Have your patients wear it 30 to 60 minutes, once a day, for results in five to 10 days. The new high-tech packaging provides superior stability and shelf life. Order by calling (800) 552-5512 or visit for more information.

Septocaine® with epinephrine 1:200,000 by Septodont - Based on your responses at my seminars, I know that you are all aware of this great anesthetic that has revolutionized dentistry with its quick onset and profound anesthesia. Now Septocaine is available with 1:200,000 epinephrine for those patients who have had a problem with the original 1:100,000 level. I have not seen any untoward reactions with my patients, but it is certainly great to have this new formulation. Usually about 75 percent of the audience raises their hands when I ask if they know about and use Septocaine. If you have never tried it, you owe it to your patients to get some and begin using it. I know you will get great results because I do. I use Septocaine in about 85 percent of the teeth that I treat. Order from your dealer, go to, or call (800) 872-8305 for more information.

OptiBond® All-In-One Dental Adhesive System by Kerr Dental - This is the one I have been waiting for! A single-component, light-cure adhesive, OptiBond All-In-One provides adhesion to all surfaces and substrates for both direct and indirect applications - even indirect metal-based restorations when used with Maxcem™ resin cement. It might be the only bonding agent you’ll need to stock. This adhesive has all the qualities you have come to expect from the OptiBond brand name. This single-component material etches, primes, and bonds. What caught my attention was the ability to use this system in indirect situations. With a film thickness of just five microns, All-In-One will certainly make the veneer cementation technique much easier and better. Kerr claims an excellent adhesion to enamel, dentin, porcelain, and ceramics. The ternary solvent system is comprised of three solvents that provide enhanced shelf life, a uniform adhesive layer upon curing, and effective enamel etching for long-term bond performance. No dual-cure activator is needed. All-In-One comes in both a bottle or a convenient Unidose system that will give you the very best chemistry possible. Order from your dealer or contact for more information.

VANISH® by OMNII Preventive Care, a 3M ESPE Company - Fluoride varnishes have been a practice problem for years. You quickly have a love/hate relationship with these materials. You have cleaned and polished your patient’s teeth, and to protect and desensitize them you paint them with a material that stains the teeth all over again. It doesn’t make a whole lot of sense, but we do it because fluoride varnish does a lot of good things for teeth. It makes the enamel stronger and more resistant to the caries process. It is great for reducing and even eliminating tooth sensitivity. Now, VANISH comes along with a 5% sodium fluoride white varnish that all but disappears after you apply it. This definitely sets a new standard in fluoride varnish therapy. VANISH safely delivers 22,600 ppm of fluoride in a quick, clean formulation that rapidly sets in the presence of saliva. VANISH comes in unit-dose packaging that sets the standard for control of cross-contamination. The enhanced flow characteristics allow VANISH to reach areas traditional varnishes may miss.

Soothe-Guard® Protective Aprons by DENTSPLY RINN - Our patient X-ray protective apron was beginning to show wear. The plastic coating was faded and cracked. We had begun to wonder how much protection it was providing. About that time, I saw an ad for the Rinn Soothe-Guard Aprons, so I bought one to give it a try. I must say that these aprons are the most comfortable I have ever used. The silky-smooth material has a great feel and is easy to clean. Our patients have noticed the new look in our radiography aprons and made favorable comments. The new aprons come in two colors - buttercup yellow and navy blue. My staff voted for the yellow. A brand new collar design helps the shield contour to the neck and chin very well. The Soothe-Guard is available in adult and child sizes, with and without collars, as well as Pano-Cape and separate collar styles. The protective aprons come with .3 mm or .5 mm lead equivalency, giving you the 100 percent protection that only genuine lead lining can provide for your patients. Order from your dealer, or for more information on the new Soothe-Guard Protective Aprons contact DENTSPLY RINN at (800) 323-0970, or visit
