Heraeus Kulzer launches new impression material

Heraeus Kulzer has launched its new Flexitime Monophase Pro Scan impression material.

The new material was shown in a recent international study of 46 dentists to be an improvement over the company's Flexitime Monophase impression material, according the company.

The three-month study demonstrated that the material delivers better precision, flexibility, and security. The material received high marks from the dentists participating in the study: 97% praised the readability of the impression, 86% praised its higher Shore A hardness, and 87% rated working with the impression material as comfortable to very comfortable.

Flexitime Monophase Pro Scan's flexible setting-time feature allows sufficient working time for all monophase techniques, as well as for more extensive and complex cases. Its short intraoral setting time increases efficiency and reduces stress for dentists, while increasing patient comfort.

The material's higher Shore A hardness of 65 indicates that the new material is especially suitable for implant impressions, generating optimal fit of the abutment due to the secure fixation of the implant posts. It also features optimized hydrophilicity and flowability, ensuring optimal flow in the sulcus and to the implant posts, thus accurate reproduction of details.

With its matte surface and greater opacity, the material's color is easily read by laser scanners and facilitates visual checking of the impression result. The impression is easy to remove from the mouth and remains free of distortion due to excellent recovery from deformation, according to the company.

As a result, the material offers high dimensional stability to ensure accurately fitting temporary dentures. The material can be used with CAD/CAM technology, as powder-free, direct scanning of the impression without requiring previous model casting reduces the possibilities of imprecision and increases accuracy and efficiency in the digital workflow, the company noted. This also enables the dental technician to start fabricating the framework before the gypsum model has been prepared.

The field of indications for the Pro Scan ranges from crowns and bridges, through inlays and onlays to transfer and implant impressions and functional impressions.
