EDS EZ-Fill® Xpress
Essential Dental Systems, Inc (EDS) announces the introduction of EZ-Fill Xpress. With the same great epoxy chemistry as the original EZ-Fill obturation material, EZ-Fill Xpress is now available in an auto-mix syringe. EZ-Fill Xpress, combined with the patented EZ-Fill Bi-directional spirals, produces an apical seal as effective as lateral condensation and thermoplastic techniques without forcing excess cement apically. Traditional EZ-Fill obturation material is still available for those who do not prefer an auto mix syringe. For more information, call 800-223-5394 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Featuring revolutionary technologies and symbiotic products, Ultradent’s EndoREZ Obturation System offers the tools you need for minimally invasive obturation procedures. Rather than introducing pressure or heat, which can cause additional trauma, root fracture and pain to the patient, the EndoREZ obturation method uses chemistry to yield strong reliable bonds. The chemistry found in EndoREZ is a methacrylate-based, self-priming canal sealer. Hydrophilic and thixotropic, EndoREZ chases moisture deep into dental tubules and canal spaces, creating a complete seal and chemical bond.
Activ GP Sealer (Glass Ionomer)
Activ GP by Brasseler USA is a unique, patented obturation system consisting of a glass-ionomer sealer and highly active gutta-percha points. The gutta-percha points are laser verified and have undergone two patented processes of impregnating and coating the gutta-percha with glass-ionomer particles.
