KaVo Kerr has unveiled its Take 1™ Hydro™, a VPS impression material for restorations.

KaVo Kerr has unveiled its Take 1™ Hydro™, a VPS impression material for restorations on Sept. 17. The Take 1 Hydro features one of the industry’s lowest contact angles at ≤10° on uncured material, allowing clinicians to push impression materials deeper into the sulcus to capture margins and details without distortions, the company said in a press release. This reduces the need for do-overs and lowers patient frustration, the statement said.


“For dentists, clinical staff, the laboratory, and patients alike, having to retake impressions or make adjustments because of flaws or ill-fitting restorations is a huge source of frustration,” said Yoshita Chaudhri, Marketing Manager at KaVo Kerr. “With Take 1 Hydro VPS impression material, we’ve made it easier for clinicians to take accurate, detailed impressions on the very first try.”


The Take 1 Hydro also has a durable, elastic material that delivers dimensional stability, which minimizes shrinkage during shipping and handling, KaVo Kerr said. The result is crowns that better match the patient’s preparation. The surfactant formula breaks down moisture barriers between the preparation area and impression material, which creates surface activation that supports better fitting crowns that require fewer adjustments.


“We recognize that no two intraoral situations are alike, and different doctors have different preferences,” said Kim Dyer, Director of Product Management at KaVo Kerr. “To meet those varying needs, Take 1 Hydro offers a curated selection that simplifies the doctor’s choices.” 


The variety of choices includes regular and fast set times and options for challenging intraoral like full or partial edentulous impressions, full arch restorations, and single and multi-unit applications, the press release said. 

KaVo Kerr is a dental solutions provider with a portfolio of dental diagnosis and treatment solutions, including restoratives, digital imaging solutions, and treatment units.
