Q: When should I use UltraTemp temporary luting/filling material?
A: UltraTemp luting/filling material should be used for routine 2- to 4-week temporizations. For restorations requiring longer retention, we recommend using UltraTemp™ REZ resin-based non-eugenol temporary luting/filling material.
Q: What is the setting time for UltraTemp temporary luting/filling material?
A: UltraTemp luting/filling material has a working time of approximately 45 seconds and has a 2-minute intraoral settting time. UltraTemp luting material is water soluble until set.
Q: Will UltraTemp temporary luting/filling material bond to composite core material?
A: UltraTemp luting/filling material will only minimally bond chemically, but it will hold as well or better to the composite core as it will to dentin. The bottom line is that the cement is designed to fail cohesively, hence maintaining a quality seal. This means that the temporary should separate fine, but the doctor will need to flick off excess cement from the core just as they would from the dentin. They should then scour the composite prep with abrasive just as they would with dentin.
Q: What do you use to seal the lingual access after a non-vital bleaching procedure while waiting to restore?
A: When it comes to sealing the lingual access of a walking bleach case, you want a good seal to prevent the movement of any staining materials into the chamber and Ultra-Temp luting/filling material accomplishes this quickly. Ultra-Temp luting/filling material is also compatible with the peroxide and is easily removed after the treatment time.
