Zenith Dental, a company with a 25-year tradition of introducing dental products and the exclusive distributor of DMG-manufactured products, will introduce a complete system designed for post and core restorations during this year's 143rd Chicago Dental Society Midwinter Meeting.

Zenith Dental to unveil complete post and core restorative system

ENGLEWOOD, NJ | Posted on February 18th, 2008

The new LuxaBond?Total Etch, LuxaPost Composite Post, and LuxaCore Z-Dual Post Cement are designed to work together for post and core restorations.

* The inclusion of zirconium dioxide and DMG-patented nanotechnology sets LuxaCore Z-Dual apart from any other core material or post cement on the market. Particle agglomeration (clumping) within the resin matrix is virtually eliminated, and at 380 MPa, the composition has compressive strength. Moreover, clinical tests confirm that LuxaCore Z is nearly identical to dentin in cuttability and polishability. In addition, LuxaCore Z-Dual has 20-micron film thickness and flow.

* LuxaBond?Total Etch can be a partner for indirect techniques. The dual-curing adhesive system is compatible with all commercially available self-curing and dual-curing materials. No light is needed for LuxaBond?Total Etch curing. This makes it particularly well-suited for indirect techniques, such as challenging cementation of posts, core build-ups, inlays, onlays, crowns, and bridges.

* LuxaPost is a transparent glass-fiber-reinforced composite post with a flexural modulus that reacts to pressure and stress much like natural dentin. Its dentin-like properties allow LuxaPost to partner for LuxaCore Dual.

In addition, each new product is designed to work independently or in conjunction with similar restorative component materials.

For more information and a hands-on demonstration of the new system, stop by the Zenith/DMG booth (#1247) at the 2008 Chicago Midwinter Meeting.
