ST. PAUL, Minn. – (May 12, 2011) – 3M ESPE, the worldwide leader in impression solutions, introduces a new wash delivery system that brings easier handling to intra-oral syringing—Impregum™ and Imprint™ 3 Intra-oral Syringes. These new unfilled syringes that deliver a dentist’s preferred choice of wash impression material, continue 3M ESPE’s more than 30-year record of delivering innovative impression solutions.
The small size and ergonomic design of the Impregum and Imprint 3 Intra-oral Syringes make it easier for dental professionals to access hard-to-reach areas of the mouth, resulting in more precise applications and final restorations with excellent accuracy. The syringes are compatible with anyVPS or polyether wash material delivered from a 50 mL hand dispensed cartridge, and offer better intra-oral handling than standard hand dispensers.
In addition to their easy handling and convenience, Impregum and Imprint 3 Intra-oral Syringes can also help reduce product waste in the impression-making procedure. As compared to hand dispenser tips, the Imprint 3 Intra-oral Syringe results in 67% less material waste for VPS materials, while the Impregum Intra-oral Syringe produces 84% less waste for polyether materials.
The syringes also enable dental professionals to dispense individual doses of wash material, giving them exact control over the material amount, with no pre-dosed quantity—which is found with existing unit dose systems in the market. Because they are single-use products, the syringes allow for a more hygienic procedure and there is no need for time-consuming cleaning steps such as disinfection of the syringes, mixing tips or cartridges.
With easier handling and less material waste, the Impregum and Imprint 3 Intra-oral Syringes give dental professionals a new state-of-the-art dispensing option.For more information, visit www.3MESPE.com/GreatImpressions or call 3M ESPE Customer Care at (800)-634-2249.
