We all search for tools and techniques that will make our practices more productive and reduce our stress. In my practice, one tool that I've come to value highly is the Pentamix 3 Automatic Mixing Unit from 3M. I have one of these machines for each operatory in my practice because I believe that to be practical and productive, we must use each treatment room to its full capacity.

The Key to Accurate Impressions

The Pentamix 3 unit has many features that make it an indispensable tool for accurate impression-making. It provides a completely consistent, homogeneous mix, allowing for void-free impressions. It also helps save material by only dispensing the required amount. As a longtime user of these machines, I have had the opportunity to use several of the generations, and the new Pentamix 3 Mixing Unit offers several helpful improvements over the already very efficient Pentamix 2 unit.

The newest generation device mixes and dispenses 3M  impression materials twice as fast as the previous generation, which enables dentists and assistants to be more efficient with their working time to capture an accurate impression. This new generation also allows for the use of quick-setting materials. The Pentamix 3 unit also has a smaller footprint than the Pentamix 2 unit, so it doesn't take up valuable counter space in the operatory. In fact, the Pentamix 3 unit has the smallest footprint of any mixer on the market.

Efficiency and Convenience

The Pentamix 3 Mixing Unit has a number of intuitive features that make it very efficient to use. The mixing unit is designed to be convenient for both right-handed and left-handed users. The mixing tip can be attached easily without opening its cover. It also allows users to quickly change cartridges when 2 different viscosities are used. In addition, a gauge displays the amount of material left in the cartridge. The mixer is designed so that, even when the cover is closed, the product names and the working and setting times of Penta Cartridges can be easily seen by the user.

An Indispensable Tool

Good timing is a critical element of capturing an accurate impression, so I believe an efficient mixing unit is an important component of every operatory. With its faster speed and helpful design, the Pentamix 3 Automatic Mixing Unit provides dental professionals with a valuable tool for impression-making.
