for a wide spectrum of patient conditions
Leave patients comfortable. For a short length procedure, you need an anesthetic which gives profound anesthesia but does not make patient uncomfortable by being number for long later.
Addressing diverse needs. You need a plain solution or a solution with low epinephrine for patients where clinicians have recommended no to low vasoconstrictors.
of provisional pitfalls can derive from the preliminary impression1

Select the right tray. It’s critical to preliminary impression success! First test the tray to ensure proper clearance and fit. Selecting a dual arch tray allows for patients to come into occlusion, improving the accuracy of your impression and saving you valuable time checking and correcting for occlusion.
Shape your preliminary impression. Carving small lingual and buccal holes in the impression of your soon-to-be prepared tooth will allow for easier removal during its gel phase. And removing remaining interproximal contacts will allow for a more accurate fitting provisional.
Select the right material. While alginates and other preliminary materials might save pennies today, they can cost valuable time and money later. Algin•X Ultra material allows for both an accurate matrix today and in case your patient breaks or loses a provisional in the future.

Manage the tissue. While Aquasil Ultra+ material is designed for intraoral hydrophilicity and intraoral tear strength, nothing improves your impression success as much as adequate tissue management. A sulcus clear of fluids and debris sets the tone for final impression success.
Keep natural hydration. Aquasil Ultra+ material is designed to work with the tooth's natural hydration, helping reduce the risk of introducing additional trauma by desiccating the prepared tooth.
Precision placement. Choose a delivery system that allows for an ergonomic and accurate capture of the margin. Aquasil Ultra+ material’s digit Targeted Delivery System gets you up to 34% closer to the prepared tooth and is designed to improve delivery from start to finish.
Use a timer to know your work time. Ensure your material provides adequate intraoral working time. Higher humidity and temperatures found in the oral cavity increase set speeds of impression materials, minimizing your time and potentially introducing distortion, drags, and pulls. Aquasil Ultra+ material provides an industry leading intraoral work time to allow you adequate working time.

Make good proximal contact with the adjacent tooth structure preventing migration of the adjacent tooth to maintain the space for the final restoration. Integrity Multi•Cure material grants predictable restorations due to minimal shrinkage.
Always check the occlusion and occlusal fit to help prevent the remaining tooth structure from supra-erupting.
A smooth polish helps keep the surface resistant to plaque. That way you can make sure the gingival health is maintained. Integrity Multi•Cure material is highly polishable to help ensure future gingival health.
The look of provisional restorations plays a big role in overall patient satisfaction. Integrity Multi•Cure material is a temporary material with great esthetics.
Save up to 30% procedure time through the dual cure capability.

Cementation success is also largely dependent on a good tooth preparation. An ideal preparation should have at least 3-4mm of axial wall height and occlusal convergence or taper of between 8-10° to create inherent retention.
85% find the light curing option a faster way to clean up excess.1 Success of restoration involves ensuring there is no excess cement left that may cause gingival irritation or inflammation. Excess cement left on tooth can contribute to crown failure.

Esthetics are equally important. Calibra Universal material features Shade Stable™ chemistry – a non/bpo amine based which makes your chosen cement shade color stable over time.
