Louis Kaufman, DDS, MBA
I have been in the dental industry for over 20 years, and I am an educator and lecturer because I love to learn. Dentistry is constantly evolving, and leading the change is my core mission. My focus is on understanding and leveraging the latest technologies to improve clinical outcomes and the patient experience. As a speaker, I enjoy educating dentists about simple strategies and tactics that can improve their processes while also increasing revenue. Another aspect that I keep up-to-date on is the development of dental materials. One of the materials I use that has stood the test of time is DenMat's Core Paste® XP. I first learned about the material from Robert Ibsen, DSS, more than 20 years ago, and I continue to be an advocate because it is easy to use and simplifies the procedures in my practice.
1. Core Paste XP features high compressive strength and superior handling properties for simple placement and long-term clinical success. Core Paste's stackable viscosity, cutting properties, and dual-cure formula make it ideal for core buildup procedures. 2. Ready for core buildup. All of the decay was removed prior to etching and adhesive application per the manufacturer's instructions. 3.Core buildup completed using Core Paste XP white shade. The material is easy to distinguish from tooth structure and cuts and contours like dentin, making it easy to shape.
What are the best features of Core Paste XP? The handling properties and long-term durability of the product make it stand out.
When do you use the material? I use Core Paste XP for multiple procedures in my office, including core buildups, prefabricated posts, and core cases.
Does it simplify your practice? Yes. It is predictable, durable, and easy to use. I believe in having a couple of go-to materials in my practice, and this is one of them.
