    April 1, 2007 South Jordan, UT

    The UniCore Starter Kit contains ten posts – five each of sizes #1 and #2. The kit also contains a size #1 drill and size #2 drill. The UniCore post is esthetic, translucent, and is based on industrial composite technology, resulting in a post that is flexible and durable like dentin, but rigid and refined enough to provide excellent retention of coronal restorative materials. The patented UniCore drill is capable of removing up to 15 ThermaFils, gutta percha, Resilon cones, and other obturators before needing to be discarded. The drill also features a heat-generating tip and high-bandwidth flutes to quickly excavate fiber posts without the need for extra drills and reamers (up to five procedures per drill.) 
    The UniCore Starter Kit is packaged in intuitive, spill-proof modules that greatly simplify setup and sterilization. The posts and drills can be autoclaved in the module, minimizing the time necessary to sterilize posts and drills.

  • Citric Acid 20% Solution

    April 1, 2007 South Jordan, UT

    Ultradent Products, Inc. announces the release of Citric Acid 20% solution, the highest strength citric acid on the market for endodontic use. Ultradent’s Citric Acid 20% is ideal for dissolving calcium hydroxide materials, such as UltraCal XS from a canal. 


    Citric Acid 20% solution is a slightly viscous, water-soluble solution recommended as a cleanser and conditioner of prepared root canals. It cleans dentinal tubules and aids in the removal of smear layer material. It also acts as a mild chelating agent, softening dentinal walls for more efficient removal of sclerotic and necrotic tissue which in turn facilitates lubrication during instrumentation. 

    Citric Acid 20% solution is tinted slightly orange for easy identification. Delivery of Citric Acid 20% is recommended with Ultradent’s NaviTip or NaviTip FX. 

    For more information about Citrix Acid 20% Solution or any of Ultradent’s endodontic products, please call Ultradent Products, Inc. at (800)552-5512, or visit us online at www.ultradent.com.

  • Ultradent’s Peak SE Adhesive System

    February 1, 2007 South Jordan, UT

    Ultradent Products, Inc. today announced the launch of a new dental adhesive system, PeakTM SE Adhesive System. Peak is a versatile system with options for self-etch and total-etch techniques. Either technique results in bond strengths to dentin and enamel which outperform traditional systems. 

    Peak SE Primer is a self-etching primer that works specifically with Peak LC Bond Resin to achieve the highest bond possible in a single-step system of conditioning and priming the tooth for adhesion. The ethyl alcohol carrier promotes a consistent coat and penetration which allows for a longer working time, reliable bond strengths and reduced sensitivity. Peak SE Primer is offered with Ultradent’s unique syringe-to-syringe JetMix delivery system to ensure a consistent, fresh adhesive chemistry with every application. The chemistries are activated when the syringe components are mixed together and remain fresh for over 30 days. 
    Peak LC Bond Resin is a syringe-delivered, light-cured, resin bonding adhesive. Depending on the treatment preference, the resin can be used with either the SE Primer for a self-etch technique or Ultra-Etch for a total-etch technique. Peak LC Bond Resin incorporates a 7.5% nano filler, which penetrates tubules to reinforce and strengthen the hybrid layer. The material has the optimal viscosity to provide a consistent application with greater control in delivery. 
    For exceptional bond strengths, virtual elimination of post-op sensitivity and convenient delivery, Ultradent’s Peak SE Adhesive System takes bonding to a higher level. 

    Peak SE Primer and Peak LC Bond Resin are available in a combination kit or separate as an introductory or refill kit. For more information about the Peak SE Adhesive System, please call Ultradent Products, Inc. at (800) 552-5512, or visit us online at www.ultradent.com.

  • Ultradent’s JetMixTM Syringe

    February 1, 2007 South Jordan, UT

    Ultradent Products, Inc. introduces JetMix PeakTM, a unique syringe-to-syringe mixing and delivery system. JetMix is designed to offer a fresh and consistent mix for chemistries with two components such as Ultradent’s new Peak PeakTM SE Primer. 

    JetMix is a syringe-in-syringe system designed to prevent chemical degradation inherent with most single bottle self-etch adhesive systems. Components of the JetMix system are separated by a thin membrane. The chemistries within each component are mixed together when the end plunger is quickly and fully pressed (or JetMixed) into the middle barrel, rupturing the membrane. Once mixed, the self-etch primer remains fresh for over 30 days. 
    Self-etch adhesive systems which are packaged pre-mixed face specific challenges including degradation of mixed chemistries, which can result in reduced bond strengths. By keeping interactive chemistries separate until ready for use, JetMix provides a fresh mix that maintains unsurpassed bond strengths to both dentin and enamel. 
    For more information about JetMix or Ultradent’s Peak SE primer, please call Ultradent Products, Inc. at (800) 552-5512, or visit us online at www.ultradent.com.
