Cements, Composites and Other Products For Your Treatment Procedures

Posted

For carrying out effective restorative dental procedures, it is important that you have the right supplies and tools ready to treat your patient’s effectively. Sometimes, you only notice that you have run out of a particular supply when you need to use it, and this can be so frustrating for both the dentist and the patient being treated. To prevent this from happening, here are the supplies that you should stock up on.

Bulk EZ Dual Cure Restorative Composite

The first supply we would recommend is Bulk EZ Dual Cure Restorative Composite . This composite is perfect for using with direct restorations. It is first a flowable liquid, but it solidifies once it is cured by the dentist. You will notice when it has been properly cured that it will have similar properties to a traditional light cure composite.

With this composite, an unlimited depth of cure can be achieved, which is made possible bv the self-cure initiators. It can be used in conjunction with methacrylate-based dental bonding agents. Bulk EZ is available in three different shades (VITA A1, A2 and A3). Dentists have been known to use this composite for…

Direct restorations (preferably for Class I and II procedures)

Cavity liner

Core Build-up

Luting post

Each trial kit comes packaged with

  • Bulk EZTM A1 syringe (x1)
  • Bulk EZTM A2 syringe (x1)
  • Bulk EZTM A3 syringe (x1)
  • Bulk EZTM 17 gauge mixing tips (x10)
  • Bulk EZTM 19 gauge mixing tips (x10)
  • ZNano TM A2 unit dose (x5)

Cavity Liner with ACP

The Cavity Liner with ACP is another one of our recommended purchases. We found that the liner was easy to apply, and attaches well to all composites and adhesives that you use during a treatment. With each product ordered, there are two 3ml syringes.

Dentin Desensitizer with Fluoride

Dentin Desensitizer with Fluoride is perfect for guarding against dentinal hypersensitivity during treatment. It is simple to administer during a chairside procedure. The formula of the desensitizer works perfectly by quickly closing up dentinal tubules. The aim of the desensitizer is to prevent any fluid shifting, which is thought to be the main cause of hypersensitivity.

When we used the Dentin Desensitizer, we found that it was easy to apply and dried very quickly. It can be used with all restorative materials for the treatment of cervical sensitivity. Some dentists use it as well for preventing sensitivity after an operation.

Dispensing Gun - 4:1 & 10:1 HP Cartridge

The dispensing gun is suitable for extruding impression materials. It can also be used for bite registration materials from cartridges. The dispensing gun itself has an easy to use release lever with an accompanying plunger, which allows the dentist to simultaneously load and remove the cartridge in a quick easy movement. This gun really is an essential piece of equipment for the modern treatment room.

Dual Cure Flowable Core Build-Up Material

Dual Cure Flowable Core Build-Up material comes highly recommended as well from dentists who have used this material. It has a high flexural and compressive strength which makes it a must have for treatment rooms. We found that this material was suitable for when it was difficult for light to be shown upon the treatment area, and it is able to polymerize quickly thanks to the dual curing properties that it possesses. The material only takes five minutes to be self-cured, which is quite fast compared to other materials on the market at the moment.

Intermediate Restorative Material (50G Powder 15ml Liquid)

IRM Intermediate Restorative material should be used for intermediate restorations that are scheduled to remain in place for around one year. We found that the material was able to offer sedative qualities on tooth pulp, which prevented hypersensitivity. It is generally agreed that this acts as a great thermal insulator.

For best effect, the IRM Intermediate Restorative material should be used as a base under cements. It has also been known to be used as part of an emergency placement prior to complete treatment. We found that the material was broadly similar in strength to zinc phosphate cement and has excellent abrasion resistance. This is further enhanced by the unique sealing properties and low solubility of the material.

Self-Curing Permanent Resin Cement (7ml Automix Syringe with 6 Tips)

Self-Curing Permanent Resin Cement is a cement that can be used for a wide range of different procedures, because of its excellent self-curing and self-adhesive properties. Dentists tend to use this cement for the permanent cementation of crowns, bridges and veneers. This particular cement has a relatively high bond strength, so it is made to last and is completely insoluble. We found that post-operative discomfort was reduced because of its biocompatibility.

Temporary Crown & Bridge Material 50ml 10:1

You should also consider Temporary Crown and Bridge Material 50ml 10:1 . This material is a syringeable bis-acryl composite which can be used as part of a chairside provisional restoration. We found the material to be fast acting and offers excellent accuracy when used in conjunction with a vinyl polysiloxane impression material.

The material is available in six different shades, namely A1, A2, A3, A3.5, B1, and Bleach BL and is sold as cartridge in 50ml sizes. This means the material can be used with a 10:1 style auto mix gun.

Hemostat 30cc Bottle

The Hemostat 30cc should be used on your patients to guard against any minor gingival bleeding. It is important to note that the product doesn’t have any epinephrine included. This prevents any adverse reaction for patients prone to cardiac episodes. This particular bottle of Hemostat solution has an excellent shelf life. It can also be used as part of crown preparations and placing fillings, as well as helping to stop bleeding associated with minor surgery.
