The KATANA Zirconia range at a glance

November 18, 2017 | Business

When it comes to the aesthetic performance of restorations in the anterior region, a key aspect to consider is translucency—the ability of the material to let light pass through it without becoming transparent. As teeth are naturally quite translucent, it is often noticeable if a restoration is of a low-translucency material, as it will not blend in. In addition, if the material is of a different colour to the surrounding teeth, it will likely appear unnatural. As the originators of multilayered zirconia technology, Kuraray Noritake Dental is proud to present our KATANA Zirconia range, a ceramic solution for restorative procedures that, owing to its superior translucency and variety of shade options, blends with the surrounding dentition perfectly.

“Clinicians will be very satisfied with the bonding agent’s performance”

November 13, 2017 | Business, Interviews

Before universal adhesives were available, two major techniques were used: total-etching adhesives, which basically work with phosphoric acid etching on enamel and dentine; and self-etching adhesives, which can be used with or without the option of etching enamel selectively. Prior to the introduction of self-etching adhesives in the late 1990s, dentists used mostly total-etching techniques. While this procedure achieves strong enamel bonding, it can also be very technique-sensitive and involves several steps. As a consequence, dentists welcomed the development of simplified adhesives. In 2011, the new generation of universal adhesives was introduced, with the aim of replacing all previous generations.

How rapid bond technology changes universal dental bonding agents

September 30, 2017 | Business

Much of the success of Kuraray Noritake Dental’s adhesive has come off the back of our originally developed MDP monomer (10-Methacryloyloxydecyl dihydrogen phosphate). After applying for a patent for it in 1981, we started using this monomer’s excellent chemical adhesion properties, hydroxyapatite and metals in PANAVIA EX, our first adhesive resin cement, as well as in our CLEARFIL SE BOND adhesive. Through a process of extensive research and development, we have been able to combine our MDP monomer with hydrophilic amide monomers to create rapid bond technology. Our new universal adhesive system CLEARFIL Universal Bond Quick relies on this technology to deliver a lasting bond faster, and easier, than ever. By building on our past successes to deliver better solutions, this new technology embodies what Kuraray Noritake Dental does best—innovate and develop new and improved products.

CLEARFIL Universal Bond Quick: the next step in bonding agents

September 25, 2017 | Business

In 1978, Kuraray Noritake Dental introduced CLEARFIL BOND SYSTEM F, the first total-etch bonding system. Through renowned products such as the CLEARFIL SE BOND self-etching primer and bonding system and the PANAVIA family of adhesive resin cements, we continued to focus on providing new solutions through research and development. Continuing in this trendsetting tradition, Kuraray Noritake Dental is proud to present CLEARFIL Universal Bond Quick, our newest universal dental bonding agent. Delivering a reliable and lasting result instantly upon application, CLEARFIL Universal Bond Quick eliminates the need for waiting, rubbing, or additional layers. Simply apply and proceed.
