IF YOUR DENTAL SCHOOL EXPERIENCE was anything like the one Joshua Austin, DDS, MAGD, had, you might have submerged composite compules in baggies in a hot water bath to decrease the viscosity of the composite and increase its flow.
These days, a product exists so you don't have to do that—the Calset Warmer from AdDent Inc. Dr. Austin recently demoed this composite warmer, using it to heat both resin composite and hand instruments. Watch the video below to see how the material flows after it comes out of the composite warmer.
