Ergonomics and the workflow in the orthodontic practice

· Morita supports orthodontists with versatile solutions

In orthodontics, a smooth in-office workflow is a prerequisite for safe and comfortable treatment of patients, who often will be children and adolescents with short attention spans. Morita has been a long-time partner of orthodontists and provides individual solutions to ensure that the orthodontic treatment, from diagnosis to final outcomes, becomes “child’s play” for orthodontists, their teams and their patients.

The number of orthodontic practices in Germany that rely on cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) is permanently increasing. For the treatment that builds on CBCT, the orthodontist requires a dental unit that meets all the different requirements of daily practice and instruments that make the work efficient, pleasant, and safe. The Japanese company Morita has been quick to identify and address these daily challenges in orthodontics and has assisted orthodontists and orthodontic dentists and their teams as a reliable partner with comprehensive solutions for many years.

At the center of the treatment venue: the dental unit

The central element of Morita’s approach is Morita’s EMCIA orthodontic unit. Its many beneficial features help orthodontists work ergonomically and efficiently and deliver a comfortable treatment to the patient. With its revolving additional tray, the instruments integrated into the backrest and the fold-away foo section, Morita’s EMCIA unit optimizes the workflow and provides greater freedom of movement for the orthodontic team. Especially the integrated instruments come in handy when treating children. As the young patients usually have a short attention span and their motor skills are often not fully developed, they can be safely get out of the patient’s chair without being trapped by instrumenttubes. The combination option that is an integral part of the EMCIA concept meets the desire of older patients for more privacy in the treatment room. Multiple units can be installed in one room but still be clearly separated from each other thanks to their compact dimensions.

Little helpers in the treatment room: the instruments

The powerful AirSolfy Airscaler is the right tool for professional prophylaxis. It effectively removes plaque and concrements, and thanks to its unique brush heads, it thoroughly cleans the tongue and all interdental spaces, while being easy on the gingiva and other soft tissues. An extensive range of scaler tips, root-planing heads, interdental brushes, and tongue brushes completes the range of instrument accessories.

The PenCure 2000 curing light ensures continuous curing at different depths without scatter losses. Different modes of operation are available for different treatment modes. For example, the high-power provides reliable polymerization in just three seconds. The different fiber heads of the PenCure 2000 can be easily swapped and provide up a wide range of possible applications, from placing brackets to single-tooth bleaching.

For opening and enlarging — or reducing — interdental spaces or for finishing and polishing enamel, Morita recommends its TorqTech linear contra angle attachments with their large selection of diamond tips for different indications. The sleek design of the handpiece facilitates access to the molars, offering an ideal view of the treatment area. In addition, the TorqTech attachments feature secure chucks for a firm grip, high-quality ceramic-coated surfaces, and a precision-crafted gear mechanism that ensures a high degree of smoothness.

The metal surfaces of the ultra-bright MXS oral mirror are glare-free, and their grip end is calibrated with a 35-mm scale. Thanks to its ergonomic shape, a 14-mm diameter mirror, and a weight of only 4 grams, the MXS oral mirror allows delicate proprioceptive actions and is comfortable to work with.

Diagnostics and digital impressions in a few steps

Morita also has the right solutions for the diagnostic phase which is the starting point of any orthodontic treatment. The Veraviewepocs 3D R100 combination system has a unique triangular Reuleaux field of view based on the natural shape of the jaw that maps only the clinically relevant areas. For the IDS 2015, Morita has added two new Fields of View (FOV) with diameters Ø R100 × 40 mm and Ø 80 × 40 mm, allow more individual height adjustment and facilitating maxillary and mandibular imaging. The result is an even more accurate alignment with the patient and minimal radiation exposure, from which children and adolescents benefit most.

In the field of digital integration, Morita also bets on proven technology: True to the Best Partner principle, its 3D systems allow the connection of open-source intraoral or model scanners. Thanks to this open approach, all practitioners can work with their preferred systems.
