Renfert introduces temp:ex cleaning liquid

The new solvent enables the gentle removal of zinc oxide-based temporary cements from dental restorations.

The new cleaning liquid temp:ex by Renfert is designed to dissolve and remove temporary dental cements quickly and efficiently in the practice – without hard manual work for the dental nurse and without risk for the restoration. Zinc oxide-based cement residues and deposits, with and without eugenol, are said to be dissolved and removed within 10 minutes. If the new cleaning liquid is used in the SYMPRO needle cleaning unit by Renfert, then the restorations are cleaned and ready for insertion in twice the time.

The removal of temporary cement from prosthetic restorations by hand is often strenuous and time-consuming and not without risk. Particularly with thin-walled restorations, the sharp instrument and the pressure applied may cause damage to, perforate or even break the restoration or cause injury to the specialist at work. Following the company principle of "making work easy,“ Renfert has taken this time-consuming cleaning method and developed a simpler and more efficient solution for the practice, temp:ex, for the automatic removal of zinc oxide-based temporary cement residues.
