KLOwen Braces is an in-office digital custom braces system that increases capacity and profitability for clinicians by making treatment more efficient. The clinician designs the smile through software, which then determines the best-fit bracket for each tooth. With an inventory of only 27 brackets (for the entire dentition), every tooth can be delivered to its optimal position directly. This system can be done either in the office or by the lab. The KLOwen Braces system is designed to achieve a true straight-wire system that eliminates wire-bending and bracket repositioning.

DMG recently added new Icon-Etch Refill etching gel to its Icon Smooth Surface product line. Introduced 10 years ago at the IDS, resin infiltration with DMG’s Icon is a microinvasive treatment option.
Icon-Etch refills will be available in the U.S. as an extension of the Icon Smooth Surface caries infiltrant, which treats smooth surface white spot lesions. It contains three .45ml syringes of the Icon Etch etching gel and 15 smooth surface tips. The procedure was originally developed as a treatment for initial proximal caries using a highly fluid resin without drilling. The additional option of successfully treating cariogenic white spots on smooth surfaces was soon recognized and confirmed by studies.
