Preliminary impressions are taken all the time in every dental practice. So it’s worthwhile selecting the appropriate material carefully, because the requirements are wide ranging: Ideally it’s as quick and easy to use as possible, while providing cost-effective high quality and precision. Kettenbach Dental’s Silginat® has been offering all this as a classic A silicone for 15 years now and has also gained growing international popularity as a result.
Impressively simple and precise
Silginat® is a medium-viscosity, elastomeric A silicone that was specifically developed for alginate applications (such as anatomical and opposing jaw impressions). High precision, the long-term storage stability, and the possibility of repeat pouring make for even more efficient impressions. Clean, simple, and reliable application with the 5:1 jumbo cartridge and its use in automatic dispensers ensures standardized and hygienic processes, also in the field of preliminary impressions.
The alginate-like consistency and low tear strength make Silginat® perfect for all impressions like for opposing dentitions, fabricating temporary crowns and bridges or anatomical models. The material is thixotropic but still flows, dimensionally stable with high resilience and is also scannable. A modern formulation for everyday requirements.
The experts from “The Dental Advisor” in the USA test dental products and their properties and evaluate them across a number of categories. This year, Silginat® claimed the TOP Award Winner 2023 in the “Top Alginate Alternative” category.
The US “Dental Product Shopper” review publication regularly has experienced dentists test established and new dental products for their clinical suitability. Recently, Silginat® from Kettenbach Dental was investigated and found to be convincing: The users highlighted its high dimensional stability in particular, which allows impressions to be stored for many weeks and poured repeatedly.
In the 15 years since its market launch, Silginat® has made a name for itself as a product for preliminary impressions as well as a convincing and reliable alternative to alginate and is the first choice for many users.
