5 Ways We Help You Get to Lunch On Time

When things go right it’s a joy and when they do not, no one gets to lunch on time. There are many factors that influence efficiency during treatment procedures and, as you know, some of these are clinically unpredictable. However, there are factors that you can control to expedite treatment procedures and eliminate inefficient, costly frustrations that take up time. Here are ways we can help you get to lunch on time. . . and save over 100 hours of chairtime per year.

Learn ways to overcome 5 (or more!) frustrations that may be keeping you from getting to lunch on time.

I SPEND TOO MUCH TIME OR MONEY ON ZIRCONIA CUTTING

Up to 35% of all crowns placed over the next 5 years will contain a zirconia coping. The ADA estimates that a failure rate of 7-13% is expected on crowns that have a zirconia coping over this same time period.

Compare: Doctors reported it takes 20-40 minutes to remove a zirconia crown or 10-15 minutes to gain access with typical burs. This can be done in 1-2 minutes with a Great White® Z diamond. Remove 50 zirconia crowns and save 30 hours of chair time.

I AM USING TOO MANY OR SPENDING TOO MUCH ON DIAMONDS

Benchmark testing has shown that, Revelation Mulit-use Diamonds cut 11% faster than name brand diamonds and cost you 25% less (saving you up to $3.00 less per diamond). Doctors who switched to Revelation Multi-use Diamonds from a competing multi-use brand reported high satisfaction with cutting rate, feel and longevity.

Compare: When the average number of crown preps per year is 250, and it takes 3 diamonds per crown prep, but you are re-using those diamonds 4 times, you are using 187.5 diamonds for crowns per year.

SS White Revelation Multi-Diamonds save you $2.50 per diamond (versus competitor). This means you save $468 per year, using Revelation Diamonds.

 

I SPEND TOO MUCH TIME OR MONEY ON METAL CUTTING

The Great White® 2 can help reduce the number of burs inventoried in any office.

Compare: Doctors report that it can take 2 to 3 FG 557 burs to remove an old PFM. One Great White® bur can remove up to 3 PFMs with the same enhanced cutting rate shown on non-precious metal and amalgams. This has been reported to save you 8-16 hours per year.

I NEED A CARIES REMOVAL ALTERNATIVE WHEN PATIENTS DO NOT WANT/CANNOT HAVE ANESTHESIA

A New York University clinical study confirmed 85% of patients preferred treatments that used SmartBurs® II over traditional treatment that used anesthesia and carbide burs.

Compare: Clinicians have reported completing an additional 100 Class V and open Class I cavity preps with SmartBurs®II to remove decay with no anesthesia. This means a timesavings of up to 17 hours.

 

I SPEND TOO MUCH TIME ON SOME CLASS I PREPARATIONS

In a CRA evaluation, Fissurotomy Burs gained a 100% approval rating; and used in Class I procedures anesthesia is often not required.

Compare: Doctors reported a chairtime savings of 10 minutes for shallow Class I procedures using Fissurotomy® Burs with no anesthesia. According to the ADA, the average doctor performs 770 Class I procedures per year. If you complete 200 without anesthesia there are 33 hours of chairtime saved per year.
