LUSCENTTHE ORIGINAL LIGHT-TRANSMITTING POST
The fiberglass-resin LUSCENT Anchors fulfill dentistry’s preference for very strong, non-metallic posts that are consistent with adhesive practice and procedures. The anchors can be placed in very narrow and large canals with conventional adhesive techniques and materials to support the core foundation and aesthetic restorations.
The radiolucent anchors, homogeneously attached to the canal and core material, transmit the tooth color without being visible under most adverse light conditions. They also provide a sound core-crown gingival interface radiating natural color through soft and hard tissues surrounding teeth.
• Transmits polymerizing light within the confines of canals
• Provides the one-stop core anchor foundation with all restorative materials
• Reflects natural hues for flawless aesthetic restorations
• Visible radiolucency in canal and through the core materials
• Available in 6 diameters to fit very narrow and large canals
Restoration of endodontically-compromised teeth with LUSCENT Anchors:
One of the most challenging aspects of restorative dentistry is the esthetic restoration of the endodontically-treated tooth. In the past, the focus has been the search for the best methods to achieve clinical success based on the post itself. Currently, evidence points to the deficiency of focusing on the type of posts and materials rather than considering the post-core complex in function.
Although teeth flex in function, the ultimate restoration in its totality should create an integrally sealed unit that does not yield, bend, or flex. Extreme impact forces should be absorbed by the periodontal complex, and the internal structures of the root should be reinforced to resist fracture.
Luscent Anchors Fulfill All the Criteria
With the introduction of the Luscent Anchor, past technical compromises are eliminated. The anchors transilluminate light, are easy to use, and offer significant benefits in radiolucency, retention, and superb esthetics.
Endodontic treatment compromises the strength of the tooth. The Luscent Anchor combines strong fiberglass rods encapsulated in a resin matrix that transmits light within the canal confines. A benefit of the translucent anchor is that it can be used with dual-cure resins and bonding techniques, which allow sufficient time for exact centering and seating of the anchor, as well as a complete fill of the composite inside the canal. The Luscent Anchor integrally bonded to the composite core/crown complex provides durable support with natural background hues for esthetic restorations.SHOP NOW
