Bisco Introduces the Core-Flo DC Lite

April 2015

Core-Flo DC Lite

Bisco has long prided itself on its ability to bring science to the art of dentistry through its wide range of versatile products that are revolutionizing dental offices around the world. Bisco is proud to introduce Core-Flo DC Lite, a dual- cured, radiopaque, fluoride-containing core material. Core-Flo DC Lite is a brand extension of Bisco' s tried and true stackable core material Core-Flo DC.

Core-Flo DC Lite is a self-leveling low viscosity material, perfect for cases where a band may be required, lower viscosity is desired, or initial subgingival margins are present and not visible (eg. fractured cusp). Core-Flo DC Lite's compressive and flexural strength offers the clinician reliability and durability when fabricating direct restorations. Core-Flo DC Lite is indicated for core build-up, post cementation and as a dentin replacement material.

Universal Primer

Core-Flo DC Lite is available with Universal Primer™, a low-film thickness, dual-cured adhesive and primer that is designed for the dentist who may not want to light cure the adhesive layer under indirect restorations. The combination of Universal Primer and Core-Flo DC Lite offers high bond strengths to dentin, enamel and fiber posts.

Core-Flo DC Lite In Action

The post cementation and core build-up technique for Core-Flo DC Lite is a multi-step process. A self-etch or total-etch post space is created and then rinsed thoroughly. All excess water or pooled water is removed with a brief burst of air before the Universal Primer is dispensed and mixed. Two coats of Universal Primer are then scrubbed into the tooth canal and air dried in order to remove any excess solvent that may be present.

After determining the appropriate post length, the post is coated with Universal Primer and air dried. Core-Flo DC Lite is then injected directly into the canal and the apical end of the post is coated. The post is then seated gently into the canal and Core-Flo DC Lite is expressed around the post to further build-up the core to the desired height and shape and light-cured. Proceed with final preparation for the impression.

The Major Benefits of the Core-Flo DC Lite

Core-Flo DC Lite's optimal self-leveling viscosity allows for excellent adaptation resulting in gap-free margins when replacing natural dentition with a direct core build-up. It's high strength and water sorption provides a strong foundation for both crowns and direct restoratives. The material is easy to prepare and cuts like dentin.

Core-Flo DC Lite's void-free flow makes it an ideal material to use for post cementation. Core-Flo DC Lite is available in an 8g auto-mix dual-syringe in two esthetic shades: Natural/A1 & Opaque White.
