A STRONGER, MORE RELIABLE TRANSLUCENT TEMPORARY CEMENT.
Resin-based dual-cure E.T.C. is reliably strong and incredibly simple. All you have to do is express E.T.C. from the automix syringe right into the crown and seat it. If you’re using Parkell’s Brush&Bond® to protect the prep from sensitivity and recurring caries, just apply a thin layer of lubricant (e.g., Vaseline® or K-Y® Jelly) to the majority of the coronal portion of your crown prep before you use E.T.C. cement. The lubricant will prevent the cement from permanently bonding to the Brush&Bond, but will also provide a retentive, leak-proof collar around the margins. Once the crown is seated, light-cure the marginal excess and begin your clean-up. E.T.C. is a snap to clean up around the temp.
BESIDES ITS STRONG ADHESIVE CAPABILITIES, WHAT ELSE MAKES E.T.C. SUCH A VERSATILE TEMPORARY CEMENT?
- Esthetics: When dealing with anterior teeth, appearance really does matter. E.T.C. blends in beautifully with nearly any tooth and crown shade.
- Eugenol-free: E.T.C. is a non-eugenol resin cement, so it won’t compromise the integrity of a bisacryl or acrylic temp like ZOE-based cements can, nor will it inhibit the set of the bonding agent and cement when you are ready to seat the definitive prosthesis.
- Saving steps & time: E.T.C. comes in a 5ml, hand-dispensed, automix syringe so you can avoid the hassle of cartridge guns and hand-mixing. Conveniently, it self-cures deep under the crown in about four minutes, or you can speed the process by light-curing the margins. Simply peel away the excess cement and your patient is on their way.
- Low viscosity: E.T.C. flows beautifully, so it covers the intaglio of the temporary crown in a nice, thin layer.
