Orthogum

Orthogum

Orthogum is a special very high viscosity and fast setting silicone, specially designed for impression taking in orthodontics.

It is characterized by a high elasticity and a pleasing chewing-gum scent which allows emetic reflex reduction, for an impression taking that reduces stress for the operator and that it is much more comfortable especially for patients in the paediatric age.

Advantages

• Precise impressions in the presence of fixed orthodontic appliances
• Fast and easy mixing with the gel catalyst
• Good dimensional stability and possibility of casting the model within a maximum time of 72 hours
• Possibility of obtaining several models with the same impression
• Pleasant scent
