Johannesburg 05 December 2019 - At Dentsply Sirona, we are focused on empowering dental professionals to provide better, safer, faster dental care. We provide innovative solutions to help dental professionals deliver the best possible dental care, for the benefit of their patients and practices. Mastering each step in every restorative procedure is essential for dental professionals to be able to provide the best possible dental care. Dentsply Sirona’s innovative solutions are proven to be both effective and efficient in helping dentists navigate even the most common procedures with greater success. Calibra® Ceram and Calibra® Universal are adhesive and self-adhesive resin cements from Dentsply Sirona, which can be used in both self-cure and dual-cure mode. They complement the light-curing resin cement Calibra® Veneer, which has been clinically proven for more than 12 years for the adhesive luting of veneers. Advanced materials enable smooth contoured surfaces with excellent shade-matching and stain-resistance. Innovative technologies make it possible to do indirect restorations in a single visit. Even though our solutions have been used to increase the effectiveness and efficiency of hundreds of millions of restorative procedures, we are committed to making them even better, ensuring dentists can continue to face each step of every procedure with confidence. Calibra® Ceram offers immediate long-term bonding that is ideal for all-ceramic crowns, CAD/CAM restorations and non-retentive preparations needing maximum strength. For a trouble-free procedure and the long-term success of the restoration, the cement used must meet these basic mechanical, biological, and handling requirements: • It must not harm the tooth or surrounding tissues. • It must allow sufficient working time to place the restoration. • It must offer viscosity and film thickness low enough to allow complete seating of the restoration. • It must quickly form a hard mass strong . . .
Johannesburg , 06 December 2019 - More than 30 years ago Dentsply Sirona brought CEREC to the market, a system which pioneered Single Visit Dentistry. CEREC has been continually developed in that time so that not only restorations, but also implant drill guides, custom implant prosthetics and even orthodontic indications are covered by the versatile system. In so doing, Dentsply Sirona set an important trend in dentistry: Treatment concepts with digital technology are now an emerging expectation amongst dental patients. CEREC not only provides many patient benefits, but also the clinical success has been demonstrated in more than 250 studies. When it comes to the use of CAD/CAM in the dental practice, the question is not whether it can be integrated into the existing workflows, but more how this can be achieved in the best possible manner. Save your patients the discomfort of a conventional impression tray and take impressions using the CEREC Omnicam, our small powder-free camera. The CEREC Omnicam allows you to take a coating-free scan of the natural tooth substance and gingiva. This saves you an extra step, reduces the learning curve and makes impression-taking more pleasant and time-saving than ever before. The CEREC Omnicam sits perfectly in the user’s hand. Thanks to the slim design and the compact camera tip, scanning posterior teeth presents no problems. Regardless of whether the patient is sitting upright or reclining, you can scan the upper and lower jaws ergonomically without having to adjust your natural working posture. In addition, the CEREC Omnicam allows you to determine the colour of the scanned teeth in the CEREC software based on your scan, and also allows you to expand your treatment spectrum to aligner treatment. This makes the CEREC Omnicam a unique multifunctional tool and offers you everything you need for your safe step into Chairside CAD/CAM.

While many experiences the year ending as a time filled with exciting thoughts of the upcoming holidays' others have an entirely different experience. For some, it’s filled with the dread of being exposed to the hole left by the absence of work while others are confronted with memories of lost loved one and better years. There are many things which can taint our experience of the holidays. Fortunately, all of them can be worked through or managed, and therapy helps. If you have the sense that this might apply to you, then now is the time to plan and set up the support you’ll need. First prize is to have a schedule that ensures you spend time with people who love you and who can be there for you. If this is not available, you need more, or can’t bear the thought of leaning on others; there is still time to arrange professional help. Establishing contact with a therapist is enormously helpful, even if you can’t begin sessions immediately. Merely knowing that you have started looking into a healing process or book a meeting for next year can produce enough hope and relief to carry you through. But where does one find this help? If you have access to private medical care, then you can consider approaching your GP and asking them to refer you to a counsellor or psychologist in your area. Those who don’t have such access can visit their local community clinic and ask the attending sister to please place you on the psychology waiting list or to refer you to a nearby clinic that can provide the necessary help. The very idea of approaching a doctor or sister is often so daunting that some people never take this first step. If this applies to you, you’ll be happy to know that several websites help you find the services you need. TherapyRoute.com is a good place to start. This platform includes informative articles, lists private practices as well as non-profit and community service facilities, automatically displays the services nearest to you and helps you . . .
Our very own Archbishop Desmond Tutu once said, “You don’t choose your family. They are God’s gift to you, as you are to them.” Cape Town’s leading family destination, Bay Harbour Market in Hout Bay is all about the very essence of family – sharing, laughing, secretly admiring, stealing a wink and creating those tiny moments that are remembered for a lifetime. “A family that eats together, stays together.” Right? The market boasts an intimate atmosphere with live music - perfect for the family to gather at this time of year. When paired with delicious nibbly bits, you have all the ingredients for a memorable experience. And it doesn’t stop there – throw in a pinch of craftsmanship, artistic flair and colour that pops in every corner… and finally, add some local wines, craft beers and cocktails. Now stir gently! “It’s all about the variety of cuisine,” says Bay Harbour Market spokesperson, Lyn Mance, when asked how the market has for so many years brought generations together. “From Mediterranean and Spanish to traditional Asian and German, we have a dish for every palette and every mood. That’s why we are a great destination for the whole family – from toddler to grandma, we have you covered!” Mance continues, “We get about 25 000 visitors per month, making us one of the most visited markets in the Mother City by both locals and tourists. With this in mind we have a safe and secure kiddies area as well, making sure the little ones are also entertained and enjoying themselves.” Apart from Bay Harbour Market, the region has more to offer as well… Take a walk down to Hout Bay beach or perhaps a drive around Chapman’s Peak for the world-renown scenery. World of Birds, the largest bird park in Africa, is as old as the hills and still extremely popular especially for the younger ones.

JOHANNESBURG, DECEMBER 3, 2018 - Trees are very important as they provide our planet with essential environmental services while also giving us jobs, products and fun. To celebrate the many fantastic things about forests, both natural and planted, the Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) is running a competition ahead of International Day of Forests on 21 March 2019. The prize: a trip to Rome! According to FAO, "the 2019 theme for the International Day of Forests is ‘Forests and Education’ and we want the world to know how you educate children and youth about the importance of trees and forests. Today, when more than half the world’s population lives in cities and are increasingly disconnected from nature, it is more essential than ever to bring an understanding and awareness of forests and their benefits into children’s lives at an early age.” FAO is inviting teachers, educators and parents to produce and submit a short one-minute video that shows how you impart a better understanding about the importance of forests and trees for our planet’s future. This could be a video of a traditional class, nature walk into a wooded area or plantation, a local park with trees, an artwork, a song or music lesson or even an exercise class. The Paper Manufacturers Association of South Africa (PAMSA) and Forestry South Africa have put together some resources with specific facts on the South African forestry and forest product sector. Visit the special page on www.forestryexplained.co.za for more information. Deadline for entries is 15 December 2018. (We recognise that this is after schools break up for the SA summer holidays. It could however be a fun activity for these last few weeks of school.) How do I enter? To enter the contest, just follow these steps: Make a short video that shows how you teach children and youth about the importance of forests. The video should not exceed 1 minute and can be produced with any professional or non-professional device . . .
