In a few short weeks, the Internationale Dental-Schau – the leading trade show for dental care and dental technology – opens its doors in Cologne. The event, which takes place every other year in March, offers thousands of trade visitors the chance to find out all they need to know about new developments in the dental sector. FORESTADENT has traditionally presented its product innovations at the trade event, and will do so again this year. Now the company looks forward to a productive appearance in partnership with its subsidiary FORESTADENT IMPLANTS, which was founded in 2017 and will come to IDS for the first time.


Stand design reflects corporate roots

To ensure another success, the family-run business has opted for a special design for its 80-square-metre stand (hall 10.2, stand R061), which will be located in the same place. Echoing the roots of a business with more than 110 years of tradition, illuminated display cases in the style of a jewellery exhibition will catch the eye, while chain curtains will separate the discussion area from the presentation space. The company’s history goes back to 1907, when founder Bernhard Förster purchased a small factory to make spring rings and chain fasteners for the local jewellery industry. FORESTA brand watch mechanisms and complete watches would later be included in the range of ultra-precise microcomponents, ultimately leading to the manufacture of quality orthodontic products in the early 1970s.

Presenting the latest treatment solutions

FORESTADENT products featured in the city on the Rhine from 12th-16th March will include Mini Sprint® II brackets. With various new features added to the earlier versions, the popular classic bracket for conventional ligation now delivers even greater efficiency in clinical application. Available with Mini Sprint® II brackets is the McLaughlin Bennett 5.0 prescription, the latest version of the McLaughlin/Bennett/Trevisi technology in use around the world – exclusively supplied by FORESTADENT. The stand will also showcase the advantages of modified torque and in/out values for clinical application.

Another theme will be the digitalisation of processes, as in the Accusmile® system. The FORESTADENT aligner generation is particularly notable for its flexibility and versatility, which promise practitioners greater control and added value for their own practices.
