Acrylic temporization materials, while widely used by dentists, are associated with certain well-known disadvantages. The timing of the temporization process is dictated by the chemistry of the material. Relatively high-volumetric shrinkage can affect fit and function. Hand-mixing material is not only time-consuming and messy, but also inherently imprecise.
Iso-Temp temporary material overcomes these problems. The new multi-phase, auto-mix resin material makes it easier and faster to fabricate single- and multiple-unit temporary crowns and bridges.
Iso-Temp temporary material produces lower heat than acrylics while polymerizing, reducing the chance of pulpal damage. It is available in four popular shades: A1, A2, A3.5 and C2. If additional shades are desired, tints can be used effectively to customize.
