Once an hour, an attendee wearing an Imagine™ sticker was randomly stopped and awarded a can of Jensen’s InSync universal spray glaze, the newest member of the InSync Paste Stain and Glaze product line. It offers a quick application process that allows more units to be completed with less labor, and also eliminates a firing cycle since it’s sprayed directly over set surface stains.

  • JUVORA™ Dental Disc Makes U.S. Debut

    PEEK—poly-ether-ether-ke-tone—was the talk of the IDS in Cologne last year; now, it’s come to the U.S. in the form of the JUVORA Dental Disc made from PEEK sourced directly and exclusively from Invibio® Biomaterial Solutions, a global leader of PEEK biomaterials. Available from JUVORA Inc., the disc received FDA clearance for milling frameworks for complete and partial removable dentures and implant overdentures earlier this year.
