  1. Dr. Marty Zase Loves Access Edge!

    Dr. Marty Zase, from Colchester, CT, sings his praises for Access Edge, our Kaolin Clay Gingival Retraction Paste: "I use this product every single day in my practice, and honestly I wouldn't want to practice without it!”

    Access Edge is a high-viscosity, kaolin clay-based gingival retraction paste. It contains kaolin clay, to gently separate the gingiva from the tooth, plus aluminum chloride to help control bleeding and prevent seepage. Access Edge is injected subgingivally or packed around the tooth, then left in place for a minimum of 2 minutes. As the paste dries, Access Edge creates gentle, yet effective retraction to open the sulcus. The aluminum chloride and kaolin clay act to control bleeding and prevent seepage, keeping the sulcus dry.

    At Centrix we make dentistry easier!

    Centrix donates to the DTA Foundation.

    In a heartwarming letter from the Dental Trade Alliance, Laura Fleming Doyle, the Executive Director, let us know how much our donation meant, and how important it is to help those with special needs. Their grant project is one that is near and dear to our hearts.

    Laura wrote:

    "Centrix’s donation in 2017 made a real impact as the DTA Foundation worked to broaden awareness of oral health’s impact on overall health while working to improve access to oral health care in America.

    She went on to elaborate, "Without you, the innovative pilot projects and dental student scholarships funded by the DTA Foundation would not be possible. Your kindness and generosity in choosing to support the dental industry’s foundation is very much appreciated."

  3. Refined Finishing and Polishing with GripStrip and ProxiDisc

    In a recent blog post by Dental Product Shopper, Allison Walker discussed how you can get the most refined finishing and polishing of your restorations by using GripStrip, interproximal finishing and polishing strips, and ProxiDiscs, interproximal separators.

    Our products incorporate a high percentage of diamond abrasives into the polishing surfaces, resulting in a significant reduction of the micro-roughness of the surface. The benefits for your patient are two-fold: a smoother surface for enhanced esthetics and more life-like reflectance and luster.

    For more information, or to purchase these products, please visit our GripStrip Product Page and our ProxiDiscs Product Page.

  4. 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.

  6. 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!
