  • Introducing ExperTemp™—A New Temporary Crown & Bridge Material

    September 20, 2013 SOUTH JORDAN, Utah

    Ultradent Products, Inc. introduces ExperTemp, a new temporary crown and bridge material that maintains both the function and esthetics of natural dentition. ExperTemp can also be used to fabricate inlays, onlays, and long-term temporaries that closely resemble the final restoration.


    ExperTemp, a bis-acryl composite provisional material, is composed of a 10:1 self-cure chemistry, making it easy to work with, while providing exceptional strength, flexibility, and abrasion resistance. With minimal effort, ExperTemp trims and polishes beautifully. In addition to its high abrasion resistance and flexibility, it also features low oxygen inhibition at polymerization. ExperTemp fluoresces similarly to enamel and sets at approximately 40–100 seconds intraorally. It can be repaired with a packable composite, a flowable composite, or additional ExperTemp material.


    ExperTemp is available in shades A1, A2, A3.5, B1, and Bleach White. All kits include one 50ml cartridge of ExperTemp and 15 Mixing tips.


    To learn more about ExperTemp, please call Ultradent Products, Inc. at 800-552-5512 or visit ultradent.com.

  • ISO Adopts Ultradent’s Notched Edge Testing Method

    September 4, 2013 SOUTH JORDAN, Utah

    ​The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) recently adopted Ultradent Products Inc.’s notched-edge shear bond strength testing method as a new standard. Ultradent created, refined, and has taught the notched-edge testing method over a number of years, resulting in a reproducible technique that many research organizations across the globe use today. After conducting a rigorous study involving over 20 independent organizations, ISO determined the notched-edge method superior to other shear bond strength testing methods previously available.


    ISO Standard 29022 specifies a shear test method used to determine the adhesive bond strength between direct dental restorative materials and tooth structure, such as dentin or enamel. The method is principally intended for adhesives and includes substrate selection, storage and handling of tooth structure, as well as the procedure for testing. A key element within the testing is a notched-edge crosshead used to shear the bonded specimen with an even distribution of force. Testing results are more accurate with a notched contact because they will closely approximate adhesive shear strength, rather than peel strength produced by using a straight contact.


    The ISO develops and publishes international standards to ensure that products and services are safe, high quality, and reliable. ISO protocol is employed by many organizations worldwide such as the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), who often grant approval only to products that pass ISO’s meticulous testing standards.


     

    For more information on the notched-edge shear bond strength test, visit the ISO website at iso.org, or see the attached PDF document. For details regarding Ultradent’s UltraTester, which uses the notched-edge method, please visit ultradent.com/ultratester, or call 800-552-5512.
