Futar Cut & Trim
Kettenbach has introduced Futar Cut & Trim, a new bite registration that replaces and improves the previous product, Futar Scan. Cut & Trim, which is "scannable," has a working time of 15 seconds and an intraoral setting time of 45 seconds, for a total setting time of 1 minute. Non-slumping, this product will not flow off occlusal surfaces, and the new blue shade provides improved readability.
The product's final hardness is D-35, meaning it sets rigid to eliminate any risk of vertical distortion when articulated. It also trims cleanly with a sharp blade. With six choices, Futar bite registration materials allow clinicians to choose the appropriate material to fit their particular needs.

NiTin Sectional Matrix System
Startup Reinvent Dental Products has launched its flagship product, the NiTin sectional matrix system.
Used primarily for Class II posterior composite restorations, the NiTin system differentiates itself with its ring construction. Created from drawn-wire Nitinol, the material undergoes a molecular alignment that ensures "like-new" separating forces even after hundreds of uses. Resiliency is reinforced with polyether ether ketone, a durable superplastic used exclusively in the construction of the backer and tips.
The system includes matrix bands developed with a pronounced curvature; color-coded wedges to aid in separation and interproximally sealing the band; ring placement forceps; and band placement and removal forceps.
