FONA Around the World: IDEX Istanbul 2018

Sometimes it feels like we are always on the move! Our Product Specialists travel all around the world for exhibitions and events, where they meet our partners and dentists.

This time we went to Istanbul, Turkey, to attend IDEX 2018 and present our new product offering to the local market. Dentists were eager to see FONA solutions and have the chance to try them and talk to our Product Specialists, who are always happy to answer questions by curious dentists.

Our integrated CAD/CAM system, MyCrown, was one of the most popular attractions on the booth, along with multiple fields of view extraoral system, Stellaris 3D, diode laser Aquamarine, intraoral imaging sensor Stellaris and hygiene products, including Purgenius, among others that were on display.

MyCrown is a complete chairside CAD/CAM system, consisting of an intraoral camera, design software and milling unit. MyCrown Scan, the lightweight and compact preheated intraoral camera, can be used as a colour 2D and 3D intraoral camera, thanks to its built-in sensor. MyCrown Design software guides the dentist through every step, ensuring smooth performance and ease of use, whilst material properties are under full control throughout the entire process.

MyCrown Mill communicates with the acquisition unit via wireless connection and can serve multiple acquisition units for easy sharing. It is a table top solution that plugs into a power outlet and requires no air or water line. The two-spindle system, with wet milling and wet grinding properties, ensures fast manufacturing of restorations with about 12 minutes to produce a crown.

Purgenius is a unique external water-retreatment system, suitable to any treatment center, irrelevant of age or producer, that does not require added chemicals or distilled water. The compact device removes biofilm, filters and decalcifies water, thus dramatically increasing treatment water purity and safety for patients, staff and extending handpieces lifespan.

The exhibition was wonderful and we were glad to be there. The booth was busy and MyCrown Mill was producing restorations throughout the whole day from scans, performed on models on the booth, by visiting dentists. Everyone enjoyed using MyCrown Scan, intraoral scanner, and following the design steps in the software.

We had a great time at IDEX in Turkey and are already looking forward to the next local events!
