Argen - Bridges

Captek Nano crowns and bridges offer the most aesthetic, strong, and healthy option for the challenges dentists face every day. Dentists encounter challenges when teeth have endodontic treatment, margins are subgingival, preparations are dark, and patients are at high risk periodontally. Similar problems arise when bonding is not indicated or practical, with implant abutments, and with bridges and splints. The improved Captek Nano answers these challenges with a stronger, thinner structure. For more information, call (800) 921-2227 or send e-mail to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

Aseptico - Anesthesia System

An alternative to mandibular block anesthesia, the STA single-tooth anesthesia system allows doctors to precisely administer an intraligamentary injection that rapidly anesthesizes a single tooth rather than an entire quadrant. This means that patients won’t have the numb, cheeklike conventional syringe-delivered anesthesia. The system provides real-time visual and audio feedback and verbal announcements by using proprietary CompuFlo and dynamic pressure-sensing technologies. For more information, call (866) 244-2954 or visit aseptico.com.
