Best Product: Take 1 Advanced Rigid
Take 1 Advanced Rigid provides added stability and support for closed-bite impressions.
Kerr Restoratives' Rigid formulation of Take 1 Advanced is specially formulated to provide added stability and support, preventing distortion when using closed-bite impression trays.
Formulated with outstanding tear strength, elongation, and dimensional stability, Take 1 Advanced Rigid displaces intraoral fluids to register detail in any environment, without voids or gaps. Dr. Jon Molinare, who said he would definitely purchase the material and recommend it to colleagues said, “The first time I used the wash material I thought it was too thin to stay in the sulcus. I was pleasantly surprised to find it did just that.”
Take 1 Advanced Rigid is available in fast (4 minutes) and super-fast (2.5 minutes) set formulations via cartridge and volume delivery, allowing the clinician to customize use according to need and preference. A dentist with 24 years experience who rated the material as excellent said, “The setting time with the super fast set was fabulous for single or 2-unit impressions.” He also remarked, “The super is too fast for taking several unit impressions at the same time.”
A high elongation percentage ensures that preparation margins remain intact, even in tough cases below the gumline. Contrasting colors make margins especially easy to read. Identified by 7 evaluators as the feature they liked most, accurate capture of margins was rated as excellent by 9 dentists. “It captured the margins very cleanly, even in the presence of fluids,” said a New Jersey dentist who rated the material as excellent.
