We are the proud sponsor of a free online CEU Course, available on demand so you can take this course when it is convenient for you. The webinar is presented by Lee Ann Brady, DMD through CDE World.
- Discuss what composite warmers are and how to use them
- Review the ways that composite warming changes the physical properties of the material
- Determine the impact on warming composite on adhesion bond strengths
We look forward to seeing everyone in NYC at GNYDM.

AdDent introduces our new 3D heating Tray for our Calset Composite Warmer. This tray is designed to be used with layering or bulk fill procedures where a large volume of warmed composite needs to be readily available.
The 3D tray holds 3 composite dispensers, 4 compules and 1 composite syringe or a warmed finishing instrument.

Warming Composite increases the flow of composites up to 68%.
The reason this is so important is that it makes the composite so much easier to work with.
Now a heavily filled material can be used on posterior teeth with no compromise to the strength of the restoration.
By warming composite, the properties change in a positive way. Once the composite has been warmed to 130°F or 140°F, and the composite is cured immediately after placement, a greater depth of cure is experienced in the same amount of curing time, hence a much stronger restoration.
When the composite is warmed, it becomes more flowable. By becoming more flowable, the composite has much better adaptation to the tooth structure, which decreases microleakage significantly.
Dr. Jeff Brucia assisted in designing the Restoration tray for our Calset Composite heater. This tray was created to help make Dr. Brucia’s technique for placing veneers simpler and easier.
