SOUTH BEND, Ind., July 31, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Heraeus Kulzer, LLC, the worldwide leader in dental esthetics, announced today that its Flexitime impression material has been designated a "Clinical Problem Solver" by THE DENTAL ADVISOR.
The article appears in the July/August issue of THE DENTAL ADVISOR publication and can be viewed on the organization's website.
Flexitime's innovative impression materials, which come in six different viscosities and cover a full range of indications, offer clinicians exceptional precision and flexibility. These materials are designed to put the clinician in complete control in any situation while delivering an exceptionally accurate marginal fit. It can take as little as 30 seconds of working time for routine cases, or two-and- a-half minutes for more complex cases.
Flexitime's ability to hold up without tears or distortion makes it particularly effective when multiple pours of an impression are required in order to get several study models. It also delivers exceptional detail for use as a working model, and its heavy body and light body materials may be combined for use with both quadrant trays and single unit cases.
The heavy body material may also be used as a pre-op bite registration material for multiple unit cases, and the light body material may be used for sequential relines in the bite registration process. In addition, Flexitime's Monophase material is ideal for bite registration with TMJ patients, as it lets the patient be easily guided into the desired bite position.
The Flexitime product line includes:
- Flexitime regular set VPS (vinylpolysiloxane)
- Flexitime Xtreme fast-setting VPS
- Flexitime Bite standard bite registration material
- Flexitime Dynamix speed automatic mixing machine
