  1. How Does Your Core Buildup Material Stack Up Against the Competition?

    Encore®D/C MiniMix®, our Unit-Dose Dual-Cure Core Buildup Composite material, truly stands up against its competitors!

    Encore® D/C is a superior core buildup material that ensures a complete cure, structural integrity and is easy-to-use. The unique MiniMix unit-dose cartridge eliminates waste and cross contamination; use only what you need! Encore D/C stacks beautifully, without slump, and ensures complete curing via dual-cure chemistry. Highly filled with superior compressive strength and radiopaque for easy identification, it cuts like dentin to avoid ditching in the margins. Both natural and contrast blue shades are available in unit-dose MiniMix cartridges, or in standard 25mL automix cartridges.

    Take the challenge and test your material against Encore D/C!

  3. Centrix and NoCord VPS Ads Recognized for Advertising Excellence

    This week, Dental Product Shopper and Readex Research recognized Centrix, Inc. for 2017 Advertising Excellence based on our NoCord VPS advertising that appears in the prestigious DPS trade publication. Specifically, the award recognizes our NoCord, NoKidding! campaign for overall Advertising Effectiveness that achieves “the highest attention-getting, believable and informative scores” in the research conducted by Readex on behalf of Dental Product Shopper.

    “We have always placed great faith in the power of advertising to our dentist and hygienist customers in trade publications like Dental Product Shopper and others. We also have great faith in the people working at Centrix who are dedicated to manufacturing, marketing and selling trusted, well-known products that are designed to ‘make dentistry easier.’” ~ Centrix Founder, William B. Dragan, DDS.

    New NoCord VPS from Centrix is another great example of this core belief. NoCord VPS was designed by a dentist for dentists to address some of the greatest challenges you face daily in your practice. NoCord VPS replaces the time-consuming need for packing cord, helps control fluids and bleeding and is super easy to use based on the standard wash and tray technique. If that’s not making dentistry easier, we don’t know what is.

    Congrats to the Centrix team for the amazing recognition from Dental Product Shopper and Readex Research!

Dr. McCulla and a team of 2 dentists, 4 hygienists and 3 oral surgeons provided free cleanings, extractions and fillings to patients in need.

    “This is an event we look forward to every year knowing we have served nearly 500 patients seeking free dental care to date.

  6. Couture Diamond Gripstrip™ – Easier Proximal Finishing

    central incisor with Class IV fracture that was restored with direct composite

    The Couture Diamond GripStrip was recently used in a case study for a central incisor with Class IV fracture that was restored with direct composite. The final finishing of the proximal area was done with the Couture Diamond GripStrip.

    Dr. Enachescu likes the Couture GripStrip due to the wide array of grit sizes and the free zone in the middle of the product. Dr. Enachescu uses the product by sliding the free zone between the contact point and holds the GripStrip with the short part towards the mouth and pulls back and forth to remove or polish the proximal area. Dr. William Dragan states, “GripStrip Finishing and Polishing Strips are diamond-coated to provide precision finishing and polishing for restorations in proximal areas. Because our strips contain two working areas of different grit sizes – a coarser grit for stripping and removing material, and a finer grit for polishing – you can finish and polish with only one strip… making interproximal finishing faster and easier!

    In the case study, Dr. Enachescu states “I use GripStrip to finish the proximal area after direct and indirect restorations and also to remove excess cement after cementation of indirect restorations.
