An intraoral scanner is a handheld device used to directly create a digital impression of the oral cavity. Light source from the scanner is projected onto the scan objects, such as full dental arches, and then a 3D model processed by the scanning software will be displayed in real-time on a touch screen.
Mask is a covering worn over the mouth and nose in order to reduce the transmission of infectious agents or to prevent the inhalation of pollutants and other harmful substances.
A scar repair sheet is a soft silicone self-adhesive occlusive sheet. It is designed for the management of hypertrophic and keloid scars and the prevention of hypertrophic or keloid scarring after surgery on closed wounds. The sheet should be cut down to the size of the scar; multiple sheets can be used for larger scars. The adhesive side should be placed downwards onto the scar. Adhesive bandage tape can be used if the sheet doesn’t stick. They should remain over the scar for a minimum of twelve hours a day.
Compression stockings gently squeeze your legs to move blood up your legs. This helps prevent leg swelling and, to a lesser extent, blood clots. If you have varicose veins, spider veins, or have just had surgery, your health care provider may prescribe compression stockings.
An alginate dressing is a wound dressing that contains alginate fibers derived from seaweed. These dressings are used in the management of wounds that are producing a great deal of exudate, such as deep sores. These dressings are made primarily of seaweed derivatives, and the fibers are spun into ropes or sheets. As the alginate absorbs fluid, it is converted to a gel that provides moisture to the wound bed. Alginates always require a secondary dressing to keep them in place.
Hydrocolloid dressings provide a moist and insulating healing environment that protects uninfected wounds while allowing the body's own enzymes to help heal wounds. These dressings are unique because they don't have to be changed as often as some other wound dressings and are easy to apply.
The silicone foam dressing offers extreme absorbency, great fit and promotes fast healing for most wound types and stages. This self-adhesive foam dressing helps create a conducive environment for healing by keeping the wound moist and preventing bacteria contamination/activity.
A dental microscope is an important tool that allows for better visualization through magnification of objects. In dentistry, microscopes enhance precision which not only enhances the quality of the dentists’ work but also helps ensure the long-term dental health of the patient. For dentists, some of the primary goals include micro-invasive surgeries, minimizing risks and reducing the overall healing time.
A microscope is an instrument that can be used to observe small objects, even cells. The image of an object is magnified through at least one lens in the microscope. This lens bends light toward the eye and makes an object appear larger than it actually is. The microscope may provide a dynamic image (as with conventional optical instruments) or one that is static (as with conventional scanning electron microscopes).
Dental 3D printers feature light or laser that polymerizes a liquid with the computer-guided precision required to produce small objects with intricate details. The dental 3D printing workflow has four steps. The first step is to scan – collect a digital impression with an intraoral scanner. Send the scans to a lab or to a design station. The second step is to design – import the digital scan into design software (CAD) and design. The third step is to print – once designing is complete, import the file to print preparation software for printer setup. The last step is to prepare – wash, dry, and post-cure printed parts.
