TranSil – Transparent Matrix Material

“TranSil” is a quick-setting, two-part, transparent silicone (vinylpolysiloxane with high final hardness) material designed to be automatically mixed and expressed from a dispensing instrument normally used for impression materials.

Its unique clear character offers opportunities to simplify many clinical and laboratory procedures.

As one studies the images below, visualize the variety of procedures that would be facilitated by the use of “TranSil.”

For example, think of the benefits of “TranSil’s” translucency in fabricating perfect temporaries directly, or on a model with the elimination of several steps that are now required.

Product Benefits

Molding one, quick matrix on the bucco-labial and occlusal surfaces (with only a slight amount on the lingual) can serve to:

  • Quickly and efficiently fabricate a temporary (any composite can be easily cured directly through “TranSil”). “TranSil’s” clear character can ensure that any acrylic is ‘packed thoroughly’ and is completely filling the mold prior to curing. Note: Curing composites in an anaerobic atmosphere eliminates the dispersion layer and results in a denser, smoother surface that is easier to polish.
  • Provide an extremely accurate bite-registration. Improper bite relationships can be readily seen and realigned. The original bite registration, because of its clear nature, can subsequently be utilized in the laboratory for simplifying many procedures. (Figure 1)
  • Quickly replicate any original crown form into either wax, acrylic, composite, porcelain or other modeling material. The original tooth on the left was totally duplicated in four minutes. (Figure 2)
  • Any tooth or other dentition segment can be replicated in minutes. (Figure 3 and 3A)
  • Provide an opportunity to reproduce and transfer the original shape and occlusal anatomy of a patient’s teeth into either wax, composite or porcelain. Note how such a form can be utilized to view exactly how much space is provided for the final restoration. (Figure 4)
  • Simplify your staff’s daily challenges.

The Mini Bristle Brush is designed for polishing all types of ceramic restorations and the Mini Cotton Buff is designed for polishing all types of composite restorations. However, with the appropriate polishing medium, both wheels provide an outstanding finish to most dental materials; such as metal, acrylic resins, acetal resin, lithium disilicate, lucite-based ceramic and thermoplastic materials. DVA’s Mini Brushes and Buffs are available in either packages of 100 pieces or a combination package containing 50 Mini Bristle Brushes and 50 Mini Cotton Buffs.

Acryl-Marvel Adjustment Kit

Acryl-Marvel, a new polish for simplifying the finishing and re-polishing of dentures that required some final adjustment. The special compound is supplied in small individual shapes designed for use with only one patient.

Cross-contamination prevention procedures are thereby significantly reduced. The polish eliminates the scratches and trimming markings and high-shines the denture in one, continuous operation. No pumice is necessary. The resultant hi-shined, polished surface is extremely silky and lustrous; extremely resistant to the build-up of calculus.
