VOCO Dental Aid
(Neu)

VOCO is proud to announce a new partnership with TeamSmile, a national non-profit organization based in Kansas City, Missouri dedicated to the oral health of under-served youth in America. VOCO has established an ongoing material sponsorship, that includes restorative and preventive materials, as well as a presence at local TeamSmile events in support of the dental professionals who volunteer their services. The VOCO America team is excited to support TeamSmile in the execution of their mission to “provide children in need with a life-changing dental experience through the power of sports.”

 

TeamSmile is the nation’s premier advocacy group that partners with local sports franchises, including MLB and the NFL, and dental professionals to promote their community events and increase oral health awareness within the child and adolescent at-risk population. During these events at which games, dancing, music, face painting and more are involved, TeamSmile brings together professional athletes, cheerleaders, team mascots, dentists and lots of community member volunteers to deliver oral health education, screenings, treatment, and teach those children in attendance how their oral health is linked to their overall health.

 

“We are very happy to join Team Smile,” said Leif Ebert, CEO of VOCO America, “I can’t think of a better organization that combines the family values of our organization with the rewarding purpose of our profession. It’s a great volunteer opportunity for our team members to become engaged in their communities and give back while providing support to local dental professionals that volunteer their services all in an effort to help local children in need. We are grateful for the opportunity to collaborate with our local communities at both the company and individual levels, knowing our efforts and materials are a part of something bigger that will contribute to bringing smiles to the faces of children across the country, making their lives healthier and happier.”

 

“We’re incredibly grateful to VOCO for their support of TeamSmile,” shares John McCarthy Executive Director of TeamSmile. “By contributing restorative and preventative materials, as well as their volunteer time, they are helping TeamSmile serve children in need throughout the country.  The TeamSmile model is unique, and our impact is deep, and it is partners like VOCO that help provide top-of-the-line materials to the dentists and hygienists to make this a first-class operation.  We truly appreciate the support from VOCO.”

 

VOCO America will participate in various upcoming TeamSmile events across the nation including Milwaukee, Washington D.C., and others.

VisCalor bulk - Highly-filled Thermo-viscous Bulk-fill Composite

Warm it, Flow it, Sculpt it!  VOCO is excited to introduce VisCalor bulk, the worlds’ first thermo-viscous bulk-fill composite that offers an entirely new 2-in-1 technology. Once warmed, VisCalor bulk delivers the viscosity of a flowable, then rapidly cools to body temperature once placed—allowing for the immediate sculptability of a packable. 

With an 83% fill rate by weight and a 4mm depth of cure, VisCalor bulk saves time by eliminating procedural steps and the need for additional materials used as a restorative base, liner or occlusal capping layer, effectively making VisCalor bulk two restoratives in one.

Previously, clinicians used heat to soften the consistency of a composite, but they were not able to totally transform its viscosity to a flowable consistency. Today, VOCO’s Thermo-viscous Technology (TVT) has achieved that transformation! VisCalor bulk’s unique technology is based on an entirely new monomer system and special silane coating of its glass fillers. This breakthrough technology, along with a new capsule design that is optimized for heat transfer, results in a unique but designed behavior of the restorative when warmed. Truly an exceptional innovation, VisCalor bulk offers speed and simplicity to streamline your restorative dentistry.

VisCalor bulk’s high fill rate, low shrinkage of 1.44% and excellent wear rate ensure the longevity and structural stability of the restoration. Its long and narrow capsule tip provides greater access to difficult-to-reach areas to ensure a bubble-free application, minimizing the potential for incipient decay and long-term failures. For enhanced esthetics, VisCalor bulk has a low water absorption and is available in four shades: Universal, A1, A2 and A3; with the versatile Universal shade requiring only a 10-second light cure.

Warm it, Flow it, Sculpt it – simplify your restorative procedures with VOCO’s VisCalor bulk while delivering an extremely high quality, long-term restorative solution.

VOCO Retraction Paste - The Essential Element for Precision Impressions
Product News
(Neu)

Introducing VOCO Retraction Paste, an astringent paste with aluminum chloride that effectively widens and dries the gingival sulcus, creating the ideal conditions for accurate and successful conventional or digital impressions.

 

VOCO Retraction Paste features a custom-engineered capsule with a long, fine, flexible plastic tip rather than metal, that avoids damage to the gingiva and allows for precise application. Its 2-stage viscosity makes for simple application. First, the paste easily flows under low pressure out of the capsule into the sulcus with minimal extrusion force, then once in place its viscosity increases to remain stable as it temporarily widens the sulcus. At 0.3 g per cap, VOCO Retraction Paste capsules contains enough material for up to three teeth.

 

Primarily used for the retraction of the marginal gingiva and moisture management of the gingival sulcus prior to analog or digital impressions, VOCO Retraction Paste can also be used to assist in the cementation of temporary and permanent restorations, and as preparation for Class II and V restorations.

 

The material itself comes in a bright turquoise blue color, providing high contrast to tooth structure and gingiva, ensuring that the paste is visible and can be easily rinsed off after only 1 – 2 minutes.

 

VOCO Retraction Paste can save up to 50% of the practitioner’s procedural time compared to other methods and brands, and it can be used as a replacement for, or in combination with a retraction cord.

Product News
Profluorid® Varnish has been a success story since its introduction to the US ma

VOCO Profluorid® Varnish has been a success story since its introduction to the US market in 2009. With its low film thickness, subtle, great-tasting flavors and smooth feel, Profluorid Varnish quickly gained U.S. popularity and today is one of the leading brands of Fluoride Varnish with dentists, hygienists, and patients.  VOCO is now expanding its line of Profluorid Varnish flavors to include Pina Colada, the refreshing mix of pineapples and coconuts to compliment the current lineup of caramel, mint, cherry, bubblegum, melon and cola lime. Packaged in the same easy-to-use SingleDose delivery system and providing the same quick uptake formulation, Profluorid Varnish’s great tasting Pina Colada flavor is sure to expand on the success Profluorid Varnish has already enjoyed.

VOCO Profluorid Varnish is ideally suited for the treatment of hypersensitive teeth as well as sensitive root surfaces. Treatment with VPV is also a sensible precaution following professional cleaning and polishing, in order to replenish any depleted calcium fluoride depots. The fluoride content is 22,600 ppm fluoride (≙ 5 % sodium fluoride).

 

Press Release: Caps Warmer
Product News
(Neu)

 

 

VOCO presents the VOCO Caps Warmer, a preheating device for composite and nano-ORMOCER restorative unit dose capsules. The VOCO Caps Warmer can easily warm one unit-dose capsule while it is loaded in a VOCO Caps dispenser, and simultaneously warm four extra caps and two instruments, giving the device a total of seven warming bays.

 

The VOCO Caps Warmer assists in making composite and nano-ORMOCER restorative materials easier to extrude and manipulate, particularly if stored in a dry environment. Furthermore, warmer, more viscous material will have a softer consistency, allowing the material to better adapt to the imperfections, micro-etch pattern or small fissures within the prep. Warming an instrument will make the sculpting of a composite easier and more precise.

 

The VOCO Caps Warmer has three different temperature settings: 98 °F (37 °C), 130 °F (54 °C) and 155 °F (68 °C). Each temperature setting can be selected to achieve a different viscosity depending on the material being warmed, resulting in increased adaptation, and simplifying application.

 

The VOCO Caps Warmer is optimized for VOCO restorative capsules, allowing for the perfect fit and enabling the best heat transfer while also ensuring that all capsules and instruments are warmed uniformly. Warming VOCO composites will not decrease or modify their physical properties. The VOCO Caps Warmer simply changes the way in which the material functions temporarily, allowing for diversity in handling during placement.

 

Upon initial power up, the VOCO Caps Warmer reaches the desired temperature within 15-20 minutes, maintains a steady temperature throughout the day, and it is equipped with a mechanism that will turn the machine off after 10 hours of continuous use to avoid burning out the heating element. Once it reaches its set temperature, its ability to warm individual capsules depends on the specific material placed in the VOCO Caps Warmer but, in general, takes about three minutes.

After the successful launch of VisCalor bulk, VOCO introduces its second thermo-viscous composite in VisCalor. This universal esthetic composite brings the same innovative 2-in-1 technology with more shade options and indications while keeping it as simple as Warm it, Flow it, Sculpt it!  Once warmed, VisCalor delivers the viscosity of a flowable, then rapidly cools to body temperature once placed—which allows for the immediate sculptability of a packable. A controlled, softer consistency enables superior sculptability for the clinician to showcase their artistic abilities, re-creating nature using the instrument or brush technique.

 

VisCalor is indicated for all classes. A high filler rate of 83% ensures high strength, low shrinkage of only 1.4% and a low wear rate, making it a very durable restoration.  VisCalor saves time by eliminating procedural steps and the need for additional materials used as a restorative base, liner or occlusal capping layer, effectively making VisCalor two restoratives in one.

 

Its unique formulation is based on an entirely new monomer system and the special silane coating of its glass fillers. This combined modification results in a unique material that allows the viscosity to drop to that of a flowable.

 

VisCalor’s Easy-Access-Capsule has a long and narrow tip that provides greater access to difficult-to-reach areas, allowing a bubble-free application and minimizing the potential for incipient decay and long-term failures. VOCO’s tried and true nano-hybrid technology ensures excellent esthetics in 11 shades. It is easy to polish to a high gloss shine and has a prolonged shade stability.

 

VOCO’s VisCalor is an efficient, esthetic, 2-in-1 restorative that eliminates the need for a separate flowable, optimizing workflow and improving efficiency of the restorative procedure. It’s truly as simple as Warm it, Flow it, Sculpt it!
