Oral-B Laboratories extends its advanced technology with the introduction of the new Braun Oral-B 3D Excel, a top-of-the-line power toothbrush that is said to remove plaque deep between teeth, leaving a remarkably clean, fresh feeling similar to that experienced after a professional cleaning.

Key features and benefits include double the pulsation speed of the Braun Oral-B 3D - resulting in an intense, yet gentle cleaning sensation during brushing and a more polished feel after brushing; enhanced control - improved features for full control during brushing; pulsation cessation - a pressure sensor automatically suspends pulsations if too much pressure is applied, helping to maximize the brushing experience.

The Braun Oral-B 3D Excel exclusive, dental professional offer is $56.95 (U.S.) and includes: two handles, a charger with four-brushhead storage, two FlexiSoft® brushheads, two InterspaceTM (designed for cleaning between teeth as well as around bridges, crowns, and implants) brushheads, and a travel case.

Endo Round Scaler Tips

Click here to enlarge image

AMD introduces Endo Round Scaler Tips. The tips provide safe and effective ways to explore the pulpal floor so canals are found more quickly. The increased surface area of the balled tip provides a greater margin of safety against perforation of the pulpal floor while cutting a wider path in the search for canal orifices.

AMD offers include free adapters so these tips can be used with any Piezo scaler, not just AMD's PowerPiezoTM Ultrasonic Scaler.

The tip is highly effective in removing chamber-accessible silver points. When the tip is placed against the silver point, its vibrations cause the point to expand and contract, breaking any cement interface.

For more information, contact your local dealer or call AMD at (972) 365-6151.
