Consider... every dental impression requires a stone model. It's the whole purpose of the impression. Earth Stone is not a new, additional item; it's simply a faster, cleaner, easier way of doing what must be done every day. As an added feature, it produces a better model. Ready in 10 minutes, harder, smoother and dimensionally more accurate than traditional yellow stone.
Cost comparison... realistically, the cost of dental stone for the average dental office is so small it's almost free and Earth Stone hardly changes that. But compare the benefits of Earth Stone from another perspective, chairtime, and suddenly the value of single visits become a reality.
Fast, Clean and Simple Bleaching Trays in a single visit, mouth guards, night guards, temporary splints, composite transfers. Here is a stone model in 10 minutes. No bowls to wash, No mess to clean up and No dust in the air. Simply, SHAKE & POUR.
Earth Stone may be hand shined to a high gloss with a clean soft cloth or with a rag wheel on a lathe. No need to soak, soap or spray. It also effectively offers the greatest degree of surface abrasion resistance available in a dental gypsum and far exceeds the hardest Die Stones or Resin Stones. No bowls, no dust, no mess to clean, simply Shake & Pour. Models set in 10 minutes. See Earth Stone in the December CRA Newsletter (Outstanding Products for 2004).
And here is a Sure way to eliminate bubbles in stone models!
For the Dental Assistant, there simply isn't time to waste time with do it over again. Calling in a patient for a 2nd impression because the first one had bubbles in critical places is a nightmare. A waste of valuable chairtime. If the impression is not right, it is obvious right away. If the model is not right, we won't know for an hour, long after the patient is gone. Now you can be sure the model will not have any bubbles. TAK Sure Cast is a quick and simple spray. It is the most advanced surface tension reducer available in dentistry. It has been specially formulated to offer superior results with the most difficult to wet, water repellent surfaces. Polyvinyl silicones, Poly ethers, waxes, and Alginates. After a quick spray of the impression, watch how smoothly the gypsum flows. Into every nook and cranny, with an intimate surface contact.
Here is a Die Spacer that is ready for wax-up in 60 seconds. A cyanoacrylate reinforced premium resin system that has been specifically designed for the needs and demands of both dentist and technician. The Clear Hardener/Sealer is used first to give the stone an epoxy like, chip and abrasion resistant surface. Paint it right on the margin of the die, it won't add to the dimensions, but preserves the critical margin area and prevents chaffing, excess carving abrasion and chipping to insure a correct fit. Unlike traditional paint type spacers, DieHard contains no fillers to weaken the system and thus requires no shaking. Following studies conducted at the University of Florida at Gainesville, School of Dentistry, Dentists, began for the first time, to specify to the laboratory that a specific sealer & spacer system be used for all C & B cases, that sealer & spacer.. was TAK DieHard.
