As a research-driven manufacturer of consumable materials, COLTENE has always been searching for innovative solutions and clever concepts for tomorrow's practice routines. At the same time, the group of companies is constantly growing through strategic partnerships and strong alliances to be able to offer its customers that added quality, reliability and service. This is why the COLTENE Group strengthened its position last autumn with two well-known industry leaders. The Canadian infection control specialist SciCAN and the French endodontics experts MicroMega ideally complement the existing COLTENE product segment portfolio. Immediately, COLTENE now stands for three topics: 1. infection control, 2. tooth preservation and 3. treatment efficiency.
The infection control specialist
Within infection control as the first topic, COLTENE transforms – thanks to SciCan – to a comprehensive system provider for instrument reprocessing as well as surface cleaning and disinfection. The comprehensive portfolio includes state-of the- art ultrasonic cleaning equipment and solutions, thermal disinfection equipment and autoclaves, as well as high-quality cleaning and disinfection wipes for the dental practice. COLTENE is now broadening its focus from consumables to large-scale devices.
Tooth preservation from the root to the crown
Sustainable tooth preservation has always played a central role for COLTENE and forms the second product cornerstone. A well-rounded portfolio of restorative and endodontic systems for the preservation of vital and non-vital tooth substance includes first-class adhesives, composites and accessories, as well as outstanding root canal instruments, irrigation solutions and root canal filling materials. With MicroMega, the already highly innovative endodontics division will offer an even more customised range of files and endodontic equipment.
Smart and efficient aids
And topic number three focuses on treatment efficiency. The wide range of different, sophisticated aids that dentists rely on every day includes high-precision impression materials, highquality wound care products and cotton wool products, as well as efficient suction cannulas and first-class rotary instruments.
