The brave new world of dental technology: all the trends at the International Dental Show 2015 PDF Print E-mail

At a high level: progress for dentists – analogue and digital production alternatives – innovative methods and materials for the laboratory – a focal topic at IDS


Good teamwork between the practice and the laboratory is an important prerequisite for complex implant and prosthetics treatments. The dental technician, as a materials specialist, makes his specialist knowledge and experience available to the dentist. Faced with rapidly changing manufacturing methods, it is helpful if dentists are accompanied and competently advised by their materials specialists from the start and throughout their treatment planning. The varied work of dental technicians supports the dental industry with numerous new developments: innovative CAD/CAM software, optimised materials for these, analogue or digital manufacturing options, modern labour management and much more - in short: dental technology is on the rise. The "state of the art" in dental technology is best exhibited by the International Dental Show (IDS), which will take place from 10-14 March 2015 in Cologne.

It is above all digital technology that is changing the dental laboratory today: modern CAD/CAM-supported manufacturing processes dominate daily life in dental technology. In combination with materials optimised for this, digital procedures increase the precision of prosthetic and implant structures – requiring only a short time and low costs. For example, the production of ceramic crown and bridge frameworks using CAD/CAM-supported milling technology has caused the use of traditional casting processes to decline noticeably. This change is accompanied by extremely high-performing ceramic materials such as zirconium oxide or lithium silicates, which guarantee excellent aesthetic results and at the same time highly durable dental products. Digital processes are also suitable for processing metal alloys: many precious and non-precious metal alloys can be processed excellently using milling technology; in addition, techniques such as wet grinding of cobalt-chrome sinter alloys or, as an external service, the selective laser melting procedure, are playing an increasingly important role.

However, progress in the area of traditional analogue production procedures is by no means finished. Casting technology still takes on a central role in many laboratories – this applies for the processing of high gold content alloys as well as for non-precious metals. In addition, highly-developed electroplating technology is available for the materials-efficient production of gold fillings. Alongside gold, titanium is another particularly biocompatible material that can also be processed using soldering-free joining techniques. And for aesthetic, tooth-coloured veneers in the layering and press-on techniques, there are now complete systems of stains, enamels and dentine materials available. In the future, dental technicians will be able to choose from analogue production methods and a range of suitable materials for the production of high-quality prosthetics – which can be seen in advance at the coming IDS trade fair in Cologne.

Soon, the nearly universally applicable 3D printing of long-term, stable, high-performance composites and composite materials will emerge as the latest dental development in addition to the classic casting technology as well as the modern machining processes. For this, no great investment is necessarily required on the part of the laboratory, because the dental industry also provides the possibility of central order processing.

Dental technicians are increasingly involved in decisions about method selection and the creation of complex implant and prosthetics (supra-) structures. The dental industry supports this development in particular, every two years, with the world's largest trade fair in the sector, IDS Cologne. In addition to more than 2,150 exhibitors in an area of 150.000 m², this must-attend event for dentists and dental technicians also offers an extensive supporting programme including numerous product presentations and lectures.

"Modern dental technology plays a key role in the creation of prosthetics, including implant prosthetics", according to Dr. Markus Heibach, managing director of the VDDI. "IDS contributes significantly to the success of dental technology every two years. This leading trade fair for the dental industry provides an incomparable showcase and discussion forum for all innovations in dental technology."


The IDS (International Dental Show) takes place in Cologne every two years and is organised by the GFDI Gesellschaft zur Förderung der Dental-Industrie mbH, the commercial enterprise of the Association of German Dental Manufacturers (VDDI). It is staged by the Koelnmesse GmbH, Cologne.

Records Set at OSAP Boot Camp PDF Print E-mail
The Organization for Safety, Asepsis and Prevention (OSAP) has reported that its 2015 Infection Control “Boot Camp” set records for attendance, speakers, content, and exhibitors. The annual OSAP Boot Camp is a core educational course covering all the basics in infection prevention and safety. This year’s boot camp was held January 12-14, 2015 in Atlanta, GA, a site chosen for its proximity to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Nearly 400 people attended the 2015 OSAP Boot Camp, a substantial increase over the 250-275 average attendance in recent years. A new format for the meeting was well received by the attendees. “The presentations were fantastic but what was even more impressive was the open forum allowing the audience to ask questions, said Mike Smurr of Patterson Dental. “It was impressive how every speaker was able to answer questions off-the-cuff and provide such insight and clarity.”
There were also more exhibiting companies at the event, showcasing the latest infection control products and services. “I was exhausted from the amount of traffic I had at the booth,” said Michael B Heffernan of Halyard Health. “I gave out and also have sent out a ton of samples to folks showing huge interest in our infection control products.”
This year’s conference took advantage of the Atlanta location by featuring several CDC epidemiologists and a special CDC-oriented event. On Monday evening Dr. Harold Jaffe, a CDC scientist who participated in CDC’s early AIDS investigations, hosted a screening and discussion of “And the Band Played On,” a television movie about the early days of the AIDS epidemic. OSAP recently opened a new office in Atlanta, to provide easier access to CDC’s resources.
The OSAP Boot Camp is a crucial building block for every dental professional with infection control responsibilities in both the civilian and military sectors. “The very positive feedback that we received from the Army attendees to this year’s conference has already resulted in many requests to attend the 2016 boot camp,” said Dr. David Carr, DENCOM Infection Control Consultant. The 2016 OSAP Boot Camp will be held January 10-13 in Atlanta, GA.
Celebrating 30 years of service to the worldwide dental community, The Organization for Safety, Asepsis and Prevention (OSAP) is a growing community of clinicians, educators, researchers, and industry representatives who advocate for safe and infection-free delivery of oral healthcare. OSAP focuses on strategies to improve compliance with safe practices and on building a strong network of recognized infection control experts. OSAP offers an extensive online collection of resources, publications, FAQs, checklists and toolkits that help dental professionals deliver the safest dental visit possible for their patients.
