EsthetX Flow™—A flowable composite that stacks

EsthetX Flow™ from DENTSPLY Caulk. This is a flowable composite derived from EsthetX--Caulk's entry in the micro-hybrid composite category. It has some properties that set it apart from other flowables. When it is syringed into a cavity prep, it will stack. With a little instrumentation, it becomes more fluid and adapts to the cavity walls.

Therefore, in a class V situation, inject EsthetX Flow™ and it will stack without slumping. This will definitely save chair time and frustration. Now I prefer a microfill for class V because I believe that the flexibility of the material is key to retention. But for those of you that want the strength of a microhybrid, you will find EsthetX Flow™ to be easy to use.

EsthetX Flow™ has excellent radiopacity a highly desirable property when used in class II situations. Syringe it into the box, manipulate it a little, and it will flow to the cavity walls with excellent adaptation. In your radiograph, you will find the line between the natural tooth and the restoration to be distinct.

It is made in seven Vita shades and is available from your dealer.
