Our waterlines seem to be clogging much more than usual. What is the proper maintenance protocol to be sure we don’t have clogged lines during patient care? Is there something we should be checking daily or weekly?
Do you recommend purging the lines at the end of each night or just flushing for two minutes at the beginning of the day and flushing after each patient?
Could you give me your opinion on the Dexis Carivu and the Kavo Diagnocam? Do you think they are a useful adjunct to digital radiographs?
Does the bond decrease over time and why?
Why is the bond to dentin even higher than enamel?
There was a time when getting a bond of 20 MPa to enamel and dentin was considered a success. Now I read that some bonds to enamel and dentin are in the 30s and more. Why are the bonds that high?
