ESCHENBURG, Germany--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Excellent properties – Visalys® Temp was designated as an Editors’ Choice product by THE DENTAL ADVISOR. Visalys® Temp provisional restorative material made by Kettenbach, was awarded 5 pluses. The benefits of the product made from a new monomer free of BPA includes excellent esthetics, easy high final hardness, short setting time, easy trim, finishing, polishing and resistance to fracture.
THE DENTAL ADVISOR, a leading research publication, has been publishing since 1984. It had broadened its mission from simply providing objective information to the marketplace, to improving the level of products and care available to the patient. THE DENTAL ADVISIOR has provided the dental profession with evidence-based and clinically relevant information on dental restorative products, infection control products and dental equipment. The Editors' Choice award signifies a unique, significant product. The editors review each product and clinical evaluation article and then select the award.
Kettenbach recently received the Editors’ Choice award for Visalys® Temp, a two-component BPA free resin based on a multifunctional acrylic composite. It can be used to make highly aesthetic temporary crowns, partial crowns, bridges, inlays, onlays, and veneers including long-term provisionals. Dentists can make provisional restorations with Visalys® Temp that are remarkably stable and fracture resistant due to its unique, new monomer structure.
Tests demonstrate a particularly strong, aesthetic and comfortable result
Scientific studies at the University of Erlangen, as well as extensive clinical practice tests, prove that Visalys® Temp has excellent mechanical properties in comparison with leading competitor products. The stability and fracture resistance of a crown and bridge material are defined by six main parameters: bending strength, impact strength, diametral tensile strength, elastic modulus, fatigue factor, Barcol hardness. In an independent in vivo market study, dentists rated provisional restorations made of Visalys® Temp as being clearly more break-resistant than other manufacturers’ temporaries; 90 percent of those surveyed said they would switch to Visalys® Temp.
In addition, the material is easy-to-use and guarantees superior aesthetic results in addition to stability. The smooth surface ensures a pleasant feeling in the mouth and impedes plaque formation. Visalys® Temp can be precisely milled and minimizes dust formation. Its natural fluorescence and translucency are optimal for restorations of front teeth. Visalys® Temp also contains no bisphenol A, a substance suspected of impairing health.
