Press

The most renowned newspaper and specialized press of the dental industry regularly put the spotlight on ITENA Clinical products especially when tested by a consumer panel.

The new Itena-Clinical product Total C-Ram completes the cementation product range of TotalCem. This is a dual cured permanent adhesive resin cement whose adhesive strength is 50% superior to the CIVMAR one on zirconium. The Total C-Ram, which is odourless and tasteless, has been specially formulated for adhesive cementation on ceramics, zirconiums and composites.

 

The product is very simple to use, near-universal application. Its simplicity of use makes it a highly worthwhile product for practitioners with no assistant, especially for cementing prostheses with more than one element. The material’s fluidity and curing time are really most useful.

I’ve become a great fan of Itena’s PureSnow, mainly because of its Pure Boost thermal diffuser system which makes whitening more effective. This innovative, compact and easy-to-use battery system is attached direct to the retractor and covers the whole of the zone to be bleached, giving a uniform distribution of direct heat. No longer does whitening have to be closely timed; and the patient remains fully mobile throughout.

I’ve used this composite since it first came on the market. It covers all applications for antero-posterior composites, and I’ve foundit to be a good material for milk teeth or permanent teeth. It is ideal for layering. Its great advantage is the accuracy with which its shades match the Vita standards, and the fact that it can be used in large syringes or compules.

There is no need, accordingly, to remove it between two tries, though adhesion lessens with more layers, making it easierto come unstuck.Lastly, the icing on the cake: unlike other products, the temporary elements give off no unpleasant odours even after many days in the mouth. Dentotemp, then, has all the virtues which put it among this year’s top products

I use it on a daily basis for cementing prosthetic elements onto implant abutments: its fine texture and fluidity mean crowns can be positioned perfectly. The material is tough enough to allay any fears of our prosthetic elements coming prematurely unstuck,while still allowing them to be dismounted voluntarily if need be. So really it’s the dentist’s perfect helper.
