INDEPENDENT RESEARCH INSTITUTE CONFIRMS
"SINGLE-USE DIAMONDS USED FOR 1 CROWN PREP
HAVE BEST COMBINATION OF SPEED & LOW COST"
CRA, dentistry's most respected independent research institute completed a comprehensive study of the cut speed, longevity, clogging, concentricity, retention in handpieces, effect the coolant water and problems of reuse with single-use vs. multi-use diamonds.
The study concludes:
· All diamonds degraded during use & reuse accentuated degradation.
· Combined lab & clinical data showed highest rated & best performing diamonds were TS 2000 & 770.8C Two Striper multi-use diamonds and NEO/MDT 1118.9C (198-019C) single-use diamond. (Mfg. for Neodiamond/Microcopy by MDT)
· Due to damage during use, difficulty cleaning & increasingly slower cut, patients receive optimal service when a new diamond is used for each prep.
· Clinicians will save money and provide better care if they use single-use diamonds to cut a single prep.
