Ultradent Announces Mosaic Composite!

At last week’s Chicago MidWinter meeting, Ultradent began taking orders for their newest composite named Mosaic.
 
This material has been in development for a while now and I’m very excited that it is at last available for order.
 
One of the things I really like about Ultradent as a company is their steadfast commitment to quality.  They just won’t bring something to market that is not the absolute best they can produce.  What this means to you as a customer is that you know this material has met or exceeded the company quality control specs before you ever get your hands on it.  I had a chance to experiment with Mosaic in the lab at Ultradent about a year ago.  I was impressed with it then, but they were determined to make a few improvements to it before making it available for purchase.
 
I began to use it fairly exclusively near the end of October 2016 and have been putting it through clinical testing ever since.  In my experience with it, I’ve found it to be an outstanding material.  It is available in both enamel and dentin shades giving you a wide range to deal with and performs exceptionally well with layering.  The handling is exquisite with a great consistency that does not slump and is easy to sculpt.
 
Mosaic also has incredible polishability making it have a natural shine and luster.
 
This is definitely a composite to have in your office.  After working with it for the last quarter, I can say this product is *highly recommended*!!!

Here is the press release from Ultradent:
 

Ultradent Products, Inc. Proudly Introduces 

Mosaic™ Universal Composite

 

SOUTH JORDAN, Utah, February 21, 2017 Ultradent Products Inc. proudly introduces Mosaic™ universal composite, which balances beauty and performance for lasting, lifelike restorations. Mosaic composite can be used for all restorative purposes: basic or complex. Its well-balanced nanohybrid formula produces restorations of the highest quality. Combining the strength properties required for posterior use with the esthetic characteristics desired for anterior use, Mosaic universal composite ensures superior results both visually and functionally.

 

Mosaic universal composite’s smooth, pliable consistency allows for total control during manipulation. Once the material is shaped, it won’t flow or slump out of place. Available in 20 intuitive dental and enamel shades, it provides predictable shade matching using single, double, or multiple-layer techniques, as it was designed to emulate the same levels of translucency and opacity seen in natural dentition. Dentin and enamel shades also mimic the same fluorescence that occurs in natural dentin and enamel. The proprietary dispersion of nanofillers in Mosaic composite allows for a high polish and long-term gloss retention, allowing the restorations to maintain a long-term luster. Low volume shrinkage and low shrinkage stress reduce the potential for strain on the restoration during polymerization, while high compressive and flexural strength ensure that the restoration can withstand repetitive chewing and biting forces. 

 

Mosaic universal composite comes in unique, four-gram syringes, featuring an innovative design with a smooth, contoured handle and barrel to allow for easy cleaning while still being easy to grip and identify. It is also available in convenient .2-gram unit-dose singles.
