E-Lieve topical treatment
E-Lieve, a topical vitamin E treatment, provides instant relief to soft-tissue irritation and can be used to treat damaged gingival tissue during and after dental procedures. Because E-Lieve is also a moisturizer, it absorbs into the tissue, reducing inflammation. The product also acts as an antioxidant by protecting cell membranes from oxidation, which can damage healthy gum tissue.
E-Lieve’s convenient unit-dose tube packaging allows for easy application and take-home use. Each tube contains one dose (0.5mL) of vitamin E. The product eliminates cross-contamination and waste, and provides easy cleanup and easy inventory control.
Patient FastTrack intake app

Based on client feedback, the company added enhancements that give practices even greater customization of the registration process. The patient registration process can now be tailored to fit a practice’s individual needs with customizable questions, editable patient agreements, improved patient forms and enhanced security.
Ultrapro Tx Sweep DPA prophy angle
Ultradent’s new disposable prophy angle, Ultrapro Tx Sweep?DPA, was designed to minimize splatter during polishing. The product’s unique brush guard attached near the head of the angle sweeps away saliva and prophy paste as it accumulates, which reduces splatter by 95%. The flexible bristles of the brush guard prevent splatter before it gathers by efficiently stopping saliva and paste from collecting and roping around the outside of the cup.
To reduce prophy paste waste and keep the treatment field clean, the Ultrapro Tx Sweep DPA sweeps excess saliva and paste back toward the tooth. This allows hygienists to continue working, with no need to refill the cup with additional paste.
