Rock Hill, S.C.—June 23, 2010—KOMET USA will use a state of the art digital marketing tool that plays videos directly on a mobile phone, showcasing its innovative product line.

 

KOMET USA’s upcoming Summer 2010 sales brochure will feature Microsoft® Tag, an innovative way for a person to use his or her mobile phone to play videos. The technology allows a person to scan a “tag” and play videos featuring KOMET’s OS Discs/OS30 oscillating handpiece and Endo Rescue Kit (Kit 4601).

The announcement was made today by Warren A. White, KOMET USA’s Chief Operating Officer of Sales and Marketing.

“This technology now gives KOMET USA’s current and potential customers an opportunity to see some of our products in action, without sitting in front of a computer,” White said. “The technology can be used with any smart phone, whether it’s a Droid, Blackberry or iPhone. KOMET USA is all about innovation, and we’re using this technology to better educate our customers on how much KOMET can make an impact in their practice.”

About the OS Discs/OS30 Oscillating Handpiece

Developed in conjunction with Professor Dr. Jost-Brinkmann of the Berlin Charité Dental Hospital in Germany, the OS (oscillating segment) Discs are safe and efficient for interproximal enamel reduction. OS Discs are 60-degree segmented with a radius of only 1.4 cm and a pivoting angle of 30 degrees, allowing access into tight spaces with excellent user control. The OS Discs are more effective than manual enamel reduction with greatly reduced risk of injuring the soft tissue. The OS Discs allows enough vision for the user without the need of a disc guard and provides optimal chip removal. The OS Discs are designed to be used in the KOMET OS30 oscillating handpiece. When using the micro-motor at full capacity, an effective performance of 5,000 oscillations per minute is reached. It is also possible to use the OS30 in an air motor; and at the motor’s maximum capacity, an effective performance of 2,500 oscillations per minutes can be reached. Before using the OS Discs KOMET USA recommends eliminating the interdental contact with a honeycomb-designed diamond strip. Afterwards, the user must guide the OS Discs from the occlusal side through the contact point in a slow, but continuous movement for maximum efficiency. KOMET USA developed 15 different OS Discs to be used with OS30 handpiece—nine with fine-grit diamonds and six with medium-grit diamonds. Out of the 15 OS Discs, eight are one-sided and seven are two-sided, and come in various thicknesses (0.13 mm to 0.45 mm).

About the Endo Rescue Kit (Kit 4601)

Developed in conjunction with Dr. Dominique Martin of Paris, France, KOMET’s Endo Rescue Kit is specifically designed for the quick and simple retrieval of a fractured rotary nickel-titanium instrument within the canal. This easy-to-use kit is invaluable to practitioners when an emergency occurs. The kit comes with an H269GK.315.016 endodontic tungsten carbide bur to enlarge the pulp cavity, improving a practitioner’s vision into the canal. Two reamers (G180A.204.110/G180.204.090) excavate the last few millimeters of the canal, providing the practitioner enough access to the broken instrument. The centre drill RKP.204.090 drill exposes the instrument’s surface, and finally, an extremely-fine trepan bur (RKT.204.090) is placed onto the fragment, seizing and holding it in place using residual dentin. The broken file is then removed from the canal in a counter-clockwise motion. The kit also comes with manual screw (150.155) for those practitioners who would rather not use a handpiece.

Research has shown that irrigants are more effective when they are electro-mechanically activated.

Acoustic streaming and cavitation have been proven to significantly enhance cleaning of difficult anatomy. Studies have shown that low frequency (Sonic) oscillation (160-190Hz) was not sufficient to create acoustic streaming or cavitation within the canal space.
