Live demos excite IDS visitors:
Dentaurum presenters available for question-and-answer sessions
"That is really a wonderful idea" – "Mummy, I want braces like that" - Claudia Stößer, presenter of KFO-Creativ, heard statements like this again and again. Her live demo at IDS 2007 attracted great interest. How does Claudia Stößer manage to colour the Orthocryl® plastic so the braces look like part of an ocean with a small cheerful shark swimming in it? Where did Claudia Stößer get the idea of trying out the serviette technique on braces and how does it work? Questions and questions that the presenter was happy to answer at the trade fair. After hearing general information on the fabrication of creative braces, visitors to the trade fair could receive individual attention at the Dentaurum stand. Anyone who wants to find out more about the topic can attend one of the KFO-Creativ courses, which are offered at the Center for Dental Communication, the continuing education centre of the Dentaurum Group in Ispringen, and throughout the country.
Other topics of the live demos apart from orthodontic dental technology were model casting, single-component casts and ceramics. Model casting expert Klaus Dittmar talked about clasp model casting and dental technician Michael Martin presented his concept for fabrication of a telescopic prosthesis without gum or brackets in a single-component casting process. The presentation on aesthetic points in front and side tooth morphology by dental technician Nazif Idrizi was also well attended. Experienced Dentaurum dental technicians supplemented the presentations with product information on the topics of interest, such as casting technique and fitting accuracy when using EMF alloys for high-end restorations. Tips and tricks on polishing titanium, using the "combination ceramic" Triceram for ZrO² and titanium or on homogenous casting or machining CoCr alloys were also demonstrated and explained to the interested audiences in more detail.
This year the IDS offered visitors to the Dentaurum stand the unique option of finding out more about current trends and continuing education in prosthetics and conducting active discussions with well-known lecturers and experts.
All the above topics and many more are discussed in detail in courses offered by the Dentaurum Group. You can obtain the free course programme and additional information from:
