Spring Selection 2024 - Round 3: Semi-Finals


Quadrant champions have been crowned and now the 2024 Spring Selection features just a quartet of dental products. Which of these will move on to next week's final showdown? Vote now.

Spring Selection 2024 - Round 3: Semi-Finals

Lower Right Quadrant Champion

Spring Selection Lower Right Quadrant Seed 1: Stela from SDI


Well suited for Class I, II, III, and V restorations, Stela is a self-cure composite designed for efficient, reliable placement. The material cures starting with the restoration interface, rather than the exterior surface which helps prevent marginal gaps, eliminate postoperative sensitivity, and reduce restoration failure.





Upper Right Quadrant Champion

Spring Selection 2024 Upper Right Quadrant Seed 4 - Payment Manager from Carestream Dental

CS 8200 3D Access

This 4-in-1 system is designed to enhance user experience, leading to improvements in diagnoses, patient care, and business growth. A versatile system catering to the diverse imaging needs of clinicians, including full-arch scanning, the CS8200 3D access offers 2D panoramic imaging, CBCT imaging, 3D-object scanning, and optional cephalometric imaging.

Carestream Dental



The Matchup:

The lone surviving 4 seed faces off against one of the two 1 seeds to advance this far. Stela, the innovative self-curing direct restorative from SDI has been seeing solid support throughout the bracket, while Carestream Dental's versatile cone beam solutions has also easily dispatched the competition thus far. Something will have to give as they clash to see who takes their place in the finals.

Who is one step away from the title, The self-cure composite or the cone beam imaging solution?

Spring Selection 2024 - Round 3: Semi-Finals BISCO Vs. Garrison

Upper Left Quadrant Champion

Spring Selection Upper Left Quadrant Seed 1 - Theracal LC from BISCO

TheraCal LC®

A light-cured, resin-modified calcium silicate indicated for direct and indirect pulp capping and as a protective liner, TheraCal LC acts as a protectant of the dental pulp, and the hydrophilic resin formulation is designed to create a durable liner.





Lower Left Quadrant Champion

Spring Selection 2024 Lower Left Quadrant Seed 3: Strata-G Sectional Matrix System from Garrison Dental


Designed to form a 270° Seal for ultimate flash control. It is said to provide strong tooth separation yet is easier to open due to the Nitinol drawn-wire nickel titanium that is aligned at the molecular level for superior performance. Designed for more uses, the PEEK ultra-durable reinforcement on the back of the ring allows Strata-G to retain a higher percentage of initial strength for much longer.

Garrison Dental Solutions



The Matchup:

Maybe it's because it is the most established product in the field, but 1 seed TheraCal LC from BISCO has marched through the first two rounds without much of an opposition. Now with a spot in the finals awaiting the winner, it faces off against the latest matrix solution from Garrison, a 3 seed that has managed to squeak its way through the first two rounds of voting. Will TheraCal continue to dominate, or will the thus far dormant support for the Strata-G matrix answer the call in the semi-finals?

Vote For Your Favorite:

Which of these products will go for the title next week, the liner that does more or the matrix that keeps flexing?
