I have it—you want it! Omnichroma Flow and Omnichroma Blocker Flow

Oct. 30, 2021
Dr. Howard Glazer reviews a promising new product or material to hit the dental industry. In this installment, learn more about Omnichroma Blocker Flow and Omnichroma Flow from Tokuyama.

By now you’ve heard of the one-shade composite resin Omnichroma and its complement Omnichroma Blocker. While they’re outstanding in their ability to match any shade from A1 through D4, there may have been times when you, like me, wished they were available in a flowable format. Well, Tokuyama Dental heard us and has released Omnichroma Flow and Omnichroma Blocker Flow.

Both materials feature the same “one shade does it all” capability and can address a wider range of restorative options beyond their use as a base/liner. These flowables can be used on their own to complete both anterior and posterior direct restorations and will save you chair time and money from stocking restorative materials in different shades. These are highly polishable flowable materials with good flexibility and compressive strength. They resist stain and abrasion and have low wear and low polymerization shrinkage. I particularly like using Omnichroma Blocker Flow as my first layer when sealing a screw-retained implant access hole, as it helps to ensure I have no voids on top of the plumber’s tape over the screw. I then follow with the universal Omnichroma to complete the final restoration. Yet another benefit of using Omnichroma Flow and Omnichroma Blocker Flow—you’ll never run out of a specific shade! These are must-have products to up your restorative game.
