  • Ultradent’s Anatomical Matrix System

    June 12, 2006 South Jordan, UT

    Ultradent announces the release of the Anatomical Matrix System, complete with a patented matrix and retainer clamp design. The specialized design of the matrix and retainer clamp result in restorations that mimic the natural curvatures of a tooth. 

    The system includes four distinct shape matrices providing options for different size teeth. The thin and flexible material allows the bands to conform to any tooth surface. The specialized contours ensure that the matrix will not catch on the gingival margin during placement. The matrices are interchangeable with all brands of sectional retainers. 
    The system includes one distinct retainer clamp shape which can be used with any shape and size of tooth. The clamp stacks easily allowing the sides of the tooth to be held in a matrix at the same time. The clamp tines are contoured to fit precisely with the matrix bands resulting in multiple contact points and minimizing the extra space created between the teeth. All rubber dam forceps and other sectional matrix forceps can be used to place the retainer clamps. 
    Ultradent’s Anatomical Matrix System has a variety of kit configurations, including regular, large and extended matrix sizes. For more information about the Anatomical Matrix System, please call Ultradent Products, Inc. at (800) 552-5512, or visit us online at www.ultradent.com.

  • Whiten with Caries Prevention using Opalescence PF

    February 24, 2006 South Jordan, UT

    Potassium Nitrate plus Fluoride found in Opalescence PF1 combined with the proven effectiveness of Ultradent’s carbamide peroxide formula offers a powerful solution for take-home tooth whitening. Clinicians now have a prescription for tooth whitening while preventing the incidence of caries. 


    Recent studies using Opalescence PF have demonstrated that Ultradent’s patented formula results in greater overall enamel health and strength. A study in the Journal of Operative Dentistry reports that the combination of Potassium Nitrate and Fluoride in Opalescence reduces the susceptibility of caries2. In the same study, it is also reported that Opalescence PF increases the mineral content of the enamel for greater tooth strength. 

    In addition to the proven benefits of caries prevention, Opalescence PF lowers tooth sensitivity. Opalescence PF and other Opalescence products are available in a variety of concentrations, formulations, flavors and kit configurations to meet all whitening needs. 

    As the leader in whitening for over 25 years, Ultradent is excited to announce another breakthrough. With caries prevention, improved overall enamel health and unsurpassed whitening, Opalescence PF has revolutionized the quality and benefits of tooth whitening.
