Does Encore require the use of a matrix or core form?
No. Encore® does not slump and therefore does not require a matrix or core form.
Can eugenol materials be used AFTER Encore is used?
Yes. Eugenol containing material can be used AFTER Encore is fully cured.
How does Encore cut?
Encore cuts similar to dentin and is easily cut with a standard diamond or bur.
How to Use this Product
- Prepare the tooth:
Remove all decay and old restorative material. Any eugenol present must be rinsed away with ethanol before proceeding. A prefabricated post may be cemented in place using ContactCure™ cement.
- Etch the tooth:
Apply Onyx™ 40% phosphoric acid etching gel to dentin and enamel surface.
Attach needle to syringe and express with a slow, steady pressure.
Rinse off after 10 seconds, leaving surface moist but not wet.
- Apply Adhere™ bonding agent:
Mix two drops of Adhere adhesive with one drop of dual-cure activator. Apply two thin, even coats to dentin and enamel surfaces with a Benda® Micro applicator. Apply a gentle stream of air for 5 seconds to evaporate the solvent. Surface should appear shiny. If not, re-apply another coat and dry gently.
- Mix and apply Encore:
Using opposite ends of the mixing spatula, dispense equal amounts of Base and Catalyst pastes onto the mixing pad (note: for a longer working time, use a higher percentage of catalyst paste). Mix thoroughly for 10 to 15 seconds, then back-load into the NeedleTube™ syringe tip.
Fill the tip no more than 1/2 full. Press filled tip over the green plug to seal it, and insert into a Centrix C-R® syringe gun. Bend needle if required.
Inject Encore into the post hole and/or prepared area, squeezing the syringe with a slow, steady pressure. Keep the tip imbedded in the material as you inject, to reduce the chance of voids.
- Finish the core:
After material is fully set (typically 4 to 5 minutes after injection), Encore can be cut to the desired shape, using water-cooled diamonds or burs.
Storage: All kit components should be stored at room temperature, or within a range of 50F-75F (10C-24C). Refrigeration may be used to extend shelf life. Return to room temperature before use.
Onyx etchant: Contains 40% phosphoric acid. Avoid contact with skin, eyes, or mucous membranes. In case of contact, rinse with copious amounts of water. Get medical attention for eyes.
