TOKYO, Japan: In 2012, Kuraray Medical and Noritake Dental Supply joined forces, and Kuraray Noritake Dental was born. By bringing together the materials and technologies developed by these market-leading companies, Kuraray Noritake Dental has continued to deliver a range of innovative and reliable products to more than 90 countries worldwide. Now, the company is inviting everyone to celebrate its tenth anniversary by attending its upcoming symposium, which has the theme “Up to now and from now on: From innovation to simplification”.

More than four decades ago, Kuraray shook up the dental market with the introduction of CLEARFIL BOND SYSTEM F, the world’s first total-etch adhesive system. Having inaugurated the era of adhesive dentistry, the company continued to introduce new products over the following years and focused on innovation backed by sustained investment in R & D.

The merger of the dental divisions of Kuraray and Noritake means that Kuraray Noritake Dental now benefits from an exceptional knowledge of organic and inorganic chemistry across its suite of dental solutions. The KATANA Zirconia range, for example, employs the company’s unique multilayered zirconia technology to provide a ceramic restorative material with superior translucency and perfect blending properties, whereas rapid bond technology ensures that CLEARFIL Universal Bond Quick delivers a lasting bond faster and more easily than ever. This ability to deliver products that are easy to use yet do not compromise on quality is what makes Kuraray Noritake Dental stand out.

Join the celebrations on 7 October

For its tenth anniversary symposium, Kuraray Noritake Dental has invited various international key opinion leaders to discuss their experiences with the company’s products. Prof. Bart Van Meerbeek, co-editor-in-chief of the Journal of Adhesive Dentistry and one of the most respected authorities on the topic of dental bonding agents, will pair up with the renowned Prof. Junji Tagami to examine the latest direct bonding and adhesive luting technologies. After this, Drs Michael Skramstad and Sameer Puri will discuss their day-to-day use of translucent dental zirconia and how it can optimise aesthetic outcomes for patients.

Dental technicians Aki Yoshida and Nondas Vlachopoulos will then show participants how to select the best variety of zirconia for various prosthetic production processes, after which Dr Nicola Scotti and Prof. Lorenzo Breschi will demonstrate the reality of modern user-friendly products for direct composite restorations. Finally, Prof. Markus Blatz and Dr Gerard Chiche will outline their decade of experience in using Kuraray Noritake Dental’s self-etching adhesives to bond all-ceramic crowns and onlays.

In between these presentations, a range of short videos will shine a spotlight on Kuraray Noritake Dental’s employees, who will share product development stories and interesting facts.

“We’re proud to be experts in creating science-based dental solutions focused on reliability and predictability, and are committed to improving oral health and enhancing quality of life across the world through these products,” a company spokesperson said, adding: “We invite the whole dental team to join us in celebrating ten years of innovation and breakthrough products.”
