  • UniCore Post and Drill System Improved for Greater Strength and Durability of Multi-Functional Drill

    October 1, 2006 South Jordan, UT

    Ultradent Products, Inc. now offers the UniCore Post and Drill System with an improved multi-functional drill. Utilizing the same mechanical design and properties of the previous system, the new drill is designed for greater strength and durability. 


    The new UniCore drill is designed and manufactured to increase overall performance during post preparation procedures. The new drill has the ability to complete 15 procedures involving the removal of gutta percha – a 50% increase over the previous indication. The new drill is also capable of completing 15 post procedures requiring the removal of rigid-based carriers (e.g. Thermafil®) and at least five procedures where removal of a pre-existing fiber post is necessary. 

    Other improvements to the UniCore drill include a refined heat-generating tip, which allows the drill to move quickly through gutta percha or Thermafil. The diamond coating surrounding the collar dissipates heat during post or Thermafil removal, which prevents heat transfer and damage to surrounding hard tissue. 

    The UniCore kit includes highly esthetic posts which are radiopaque and translucent. The posts are tapered in the apical direction to naturally follow the tooth’s anatomy and match the flexural modulus of the root. The pre-stressed fibers and non-violated fiber core contribute to a remarkably strong post which provides maximum protection of the root and retention of the core and crown. 

    UniCore’s unique packaging greatly simplifies setup, procedure and clean up. The drills are packaged with matching posts in spill-proof modules which are autoclavable. The modules utilize ISO-standard color-coding for easy identification. In addition to the original UniCore Post Placement Kit (contains Size #1-#4), Ultradent now offers a newly-configured kit containing Size #1 and #2 posts and drills. 

    For more information about the UniCore Post and Drill System or any of Ultradent’s Endodontic products, please call Ultradent Products, Inc. at (800)552-5512, or visit us online at www.ultradent.com.

Evaluators were unanimous in their rating of ViscoStat Clear as excellent/good or worthy of trial by colleagues.

  • 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.
