Heraeus Kulzer Inc. has announced that its Flexitime hydrophilic VPS impression material has been named the Best of the Best by The Dental Advisor, an evidenced-based dental industry newsletter.

The editors, staff and clinical consultants (over 250 practitioners nationwide) of The Dental Advisor evaluate dental products by objective clinical and laboratory research protocols. The Dental Advisor clinical consultants had the following comments about Heraeus Kulzer's Flexitime:

* "Smooth mix, sets quickly"
* "Excellent viscosity ¿ flows well and stacks nicely"
* "Light body and putty blend very well"
* "Excellent detail ¿ easy to read margins"

Flexitime takes as little as 30 seconds of working time for routine cases or a full two and a half minutes for cases that are more complex. In addition, Flexitime features an outstanding dimensional stability, straightforward processing properties and various viscosities and setting times.

This range covers all types of impressions taken in daily practice. Flexitime is the impression material that puts the dentist and dental technicians in control.

"We're very honored to receive The Dental Advisor 'Best of the Best' ranking in the light body and putty/light body combination categories," said Nicole Ford, Heraeus Kulzer's product manager of impression materials and hygienics.

"The fact that The Dental Advisor also recognized Flexitime as 'Best of the Best' in 2001 and 2003 makes us especially proud of this year's achievement."
