Dentists know that the choice of dental alloy products can impact a patient’s comfort and satisfaction with their restorative procedure. Kerr Dental is proud to offer a number of dental alloys, so you can select the best product or products for your practice. Contour is an alloy that features 70% spherical and 30% lathe-cut particles. This unique feature allows improved contact and helps to avoid chipping of the margins of the amalgam. Contour is a convenient product; there is no need for special tools or amalgamators to open or use the alloy. In addition, it uses the traditional and industry standard color-coded system, which means that there is no need to learn a new system. Finally, the amalgam is packaged in a re-sealable capsule so that no special disposal of the used product is required.
Tytin is a high-quality spherical silver amalgam. With a high silver content, Tytin is a smooth and easy-to-work with product. When using this dental alloy, Class I restorations allow polishing almost immediately after initiation of use. Like the Contour product, Tytin capsules are self-activating and also work with any amalgamator. The Tytin-Firm Condensation formula is of especially high-quality, and blends both firmness for good resistance, and sufficient plasticity to flow into the corners of the tooth. It finishes smoothly and with good appearance for increased patient satisfaction. Like the Tytin capsules, Tytin FC is self-activating and doesn’t require any additional equipment or activation device.
Finally, Kerr Dental is proud to offer OptiMix, a programmable amalgamator. Fully computerized, this product can be used with many different dental alloy products and is specially designed to ensure consistency of your mixes. Even better, OptiMix doesn’t use control cards, and is instead controlled by a programmable
microprocessor that is used for custom mixing. The LED display screen confirms all pertinent information: capsule type, mixing time and mixing speed. If you are looking for a dental alloy manufacturer, consider Kerr Dental for all of your restoration and amalgamation needs.
