President’s Message

Welcome to our 3innovations Summer issue filled with tools for growth and ideas to keep
you going all summer.

We are pleased to announce the launch of PerFormance Provisional Components.
Intraoral preparation time is much faster than with titanium and patients can leave with
pleasing aesthetics the day of surgery. The PreFormance Post and Temporary Cylinder
offer some of the longest temporary in vivo use of polymers on the market—180 days
versus 30 days. Click here for more information.

In addition, we are happy to announce the launch of our new OSSEOCISION Surgical
Drill System featuring a revolutionary design in foot controls. The ergonomic, state-of-
the-art foot control gives instant response to human commands, activates the system
from almost any angle and gives you the freedom to focus on the procedure, not the
pedal. Click here for more information.
