OrVance Retainer Cleaner
OrVance has launched a cleaner for removable orthodontic appliances that can be used only twice a week. The effervescent OrVance Retainer Cleaner can be used with select appliances including retainers, aligner trays, mouth guards, night guards, and bruxing and TMJ appliances. It’s not intended to be used with dentures or removable bridges.
The product is available in packages with a three-month supply (28 tablets) and in sample-size packages with four tablets (a two-week supply) for orthodontic and dental practices. Packaging and patient samples also provide a QR code to a video that educates patients how to care for their retainers and aligners.
VeriWash 3D Print Material Cleaner
Whip Mix’s new VeriWash station is designed to clean
3D-printed resin after processing. The VeriWash’s oscillating,
multispeed stirrer produces a vortex that creates efficient,
effective and powerful cleaning whether the units are individual
or still attached to the build plate.
Its two alcohol baths make an effective step-wash system that
cleans efficiently and less alcohol is needed because the alcohol
can be reused from the fresh bath to the dirty bath. The unit’s
design offers features such as mode, time, and a start/stop button
display, giving the operator full and automatic control of the
cleaning process. A mesh basket makes it easy to keep track of
small printed parts when cleaning.
