Dental Advisor selects Pulpdent Tuff-Temp
WATERTOWN, MA — The Dental Advisor, which provides the dental profession with evidence-based and clinically relevant information on dental restorative products, infection control products, and dental equipment, recently rated Pulpdent Tuff-Temp™ Provisional Veneer, Crown & Bridge Resin 4½ (out of 5) and selected it as a 2011 Preferred Product. The product was evaluated by 27 consultants and received a 91% rating. The Dental Advisor reports objective clinical evaluations, product comparisons, comprehensive long-term clinical performance studies, and unbiased laboratory test results. Tuff-Temp Provisional Veneer, Crown & Bridge Resin is a new rubberized-urethane provisional material with advantages over acrylics and bis-acrylics. Tuff-Temp is the first innovation in temporary materials in almost two decades. The proprietary chemistry, available only from Pulpdent, provides greater strength and dimensional stability, and a tighter fitting provisional restoration. With Pulpdent Tuff-Temp Resin, temporaries are tough, impact-resistant, and grip the teeth. Chipping, breaking, debonding, and recementations are minimized or eliminated. Tuff-Temp is designed to grind and powder, producing crisp and accurate margins that do not soften or distort. It does not gum up or clog finishing instruments. Exceptional results can be achieved by trimming with a slow speed acrylic bur, fine grit diamond bur, or finishing and polishing disk system. A fast application of Tuff-Temp Provisional Glaze provides enhanced esthetics and patient satisfaction during temporization. Tuff-Temp is dual cure. It both self-cures and has a light cure option to produce a final set, full strength restoration on demand. The fast light cure option is also ideal for use with a clear vinyl polysiloxane template. For alterations or smile design, the Tuff-Temp system includes Tuff-Temp Provisional Add-on, a shade-matching, light cure, flowable resin formulated from the Pulpdent’s proprietary rubberized-urethane chemistry. It is packaged in a 50 mL automix cartridge that fits into a standard one-to-one gun used for impression materials and is available in six popular shades: A1, A2, A3, A3.5, B1 and Bleach.Pulpdent manufactures products for the dental profession, including adhesives, composites, sealants, cements, etching gels, calcium hydroxide products, endodontic specialties .and bonding accessories.
