DSI Hemostatic Sponge - Basic Information

Temporary Fillings help to restore teeth dented by decay back to their standard function, and will truly avert further decay. Your dentist will ponder on several factors when selecting which type of filling material is perfect for you. These factors include the extent of the repair, where in your mouth the filling should be used and the cost.

There are numerous reasons why a dentist may place a momentary dental filling. Maybe you've just got a root canal, or it could be you're expecting a gold filling or crown to be made for a problematic tooth. Whatsoever the reason, when you have such a dental filling, you are probably wondering what you can and can't do until your tooth is to be permanently fixed.

Given that the filling is temporary, it appears to be pretty obvious there’s need to come more easily as compared to a regular filling. How do you make sure it stays put until the next time you visit the dentist?


Care of Your Temporary Filling:

If you're convinced that your temporary dental filling might come out more easily when compared to a permanent one, you are on track. In order for this temporary filling to last long more than the time your dentist projected it to, you'll have to give it special care.


Be cautious of Unusual Sensations

As soon as the anesthesia wears off from the filling, be certain not to bite or manipulate that region of the mouth. It's possible to get numb, which makes it cool for you to hurt the medial side of the mouth or tongue accidentally.

When the anesthesia actually starts to wear off, you could feel a painful tingling sensation; it will lessen as the medication continues to get its way out of your body. Be cautious, if you wish to drink any hot liquids. You mightn't have been able to feel how hot the beverage is and might burn your mouth.


Be Careful When Chewing

Though your dentist could give you orders which are exact to your particular filing, here are some generalizations you can put in mind likewise.

Try to chew only on the medial side of the mouth that doesn't contain the temporary filling. Though, this mightn't difficult to memorize. You might find yourself forgetting and chewing on that side of course. Careful and gentle chewing will most likely be reasonable.

In many cases, your dentist might let you know to avoid chewing using the side of your mouth for 24 hours when you have a silver filling on. For white fillings, you may chew as soon as the numbness wears off.

Try to enjoy only soft foods if you have fillings on both sides of the mouth. In general, stay away from foods which might be hard and crunchy like nuts. Toffee and chewing gum should also be avoided whenever possible.


Take Care When Brushing and Flossing

Another specific area of concern whenever you have a temporary filling is how to look after it properly. Be assured that caring your filling is similar to brushing and flossing your other teeth.

Select a toothbrush which includes soft or extra-soft bristles. Using a gentle touch, clear your teeth, for example, the one with all the filling.

Flossing with a temporary filling is usually a bit complicated though. A filling that extends, close to the edge of one's tooth needs to become treated with care once you floss.

Rather than pulling the floss up among your teeth, once you're ready to move to the next, lightly pull it out to the side of the tooth instead. This removes the possibility of the floss catching on the edge in the filling and pulling it against the mouth area.


What's a Temporary Filling and Why You Need One?

Temporary fillings are widely-used under the following situations:

1. For fillings that need more than one appointment - for instance, before placements of gold fillings as well as for specific filling procedures (called indirect fillings) intended to use composite materials

2. Following a root canal preparation

3. To allow a tooth's nerve to "settle down" should the pulp became peeved

4. If emergency dental treatment should be used (for example to address a toothache.

Temporary fillings are simply just that; it isn't meant to last. They usually fallout totally, fracture or degrade within 30 days. 

Be sure to get hold of your dentist to get your temporary filling replaced with a permanent one. If you don't, your tooth could become infected, or you could have other complications.

DSI_Concave_kit Information for Patients

Typically 30% to 50% phosphoric acid is employed as an etchant. It's readily available from several makers. As soon as the enamel and dentin have been prepared with phosphoric acid, dental bonding agents and restorative composite materials complete the routine.

There are two main classes of composites and adhesive materials in dentistry. One is BIS-GMA, and the other one is a polymer. As luck would have it for the dental profession, these materials relate seamlessly. Without knowing the chemistry of individual bonding agents and veneer composites, the dentist would feel protected in using any bonding agent with any composite.

Producers, for sure, would prefer that the dentist uses the bonding agent and composite in the same brand system, however from a dentist's perspective, if an adhesive from one manufacturer and a composite from another maker appear to be more appropriate, this isn't a problem regarding chemistry, durability, or adhesion.

The hunt for perfect dental adhesives is perhaps as old as dentistry itself. Major advances in adhesive dentistry have solidly progressed over the past four decades. The bonding of bis-GMA resin to etched enamel presented esthetic restorations without any requirement for mechanical retention formula.

A clear goal was to develop adhesive material that bonds to dentin with a strength minimum of up to that of resin bonded to etched enamel. Making this robust bond is extraordinarily tough because dentin is merely about 50% inorganic by volume compared with about 98% mineral content of enamel.

The remaining volume of dentin is primarily water and collagen. Moreover, a newly prepared dentin surface is substantially altered by instrumentation through operative procedures (smear layer). 

Enamel is the most exceptionally mineralized body tissue (with 98% mineral content vs. 70% for bone). And this certainly makes the process of dental bonding achievable.

The etching method - What will it do?

When an acidic resolution is positioned on a tooth's enamel surface, it'll dissolve away (etch) a number of its mineral content. After this etching treatment, the enamel's even surface will have been changed into one that at a microscopic level is uneven, serrated and rough. Acidic etching gel is employed to roughen up the enamel's surface.

What kind of acid is employed to etched teeth?

The most common etchant employed in dentistry is phosphoric acid. 36% phosphoric acid (DSI UniEtch 36% gel) is considered the “golden standard” formulation however product could range from 30% to 50%.

Etchant product typically takes the shape of a gel that once gushed onto the tooth's surface tends not to run. In the early years of bonding technique, the liquid etchant was standard, however; it has since faded in popularity.

How long is that the etchant left on the tooth?

The etchant is typically applied then left on a tooth's surface for about twenty seconds. Later on, it's rinsed off by employing a water spray.

What does etched tooth enamel substance look like? - A simple assessment.

Concerning one thing you're possible accustomed to, etched enamel is incredibly like opaque (etched) glass.

With etched glass, you could run your hand over its slender surface you could feel that it's a texture. That is because, at a microscopic level, it's quite coarse, similar to fine sandpaper.

You're most likely accustomed to the very fact that etched glass has a dull, opaque look. In a related fashion, if you dry etched enamel it displays this same distinct opaque look too.

How dental bonding's attachment to a tooth's surface is created.

In making the bond between the restorative placed and a tooth's surface, dental bonding science uses the microscopic coarseness of etched tooth enamel.

Here's how:

1. The bonding agent locks onto the enamel.

2. The dental composite, in turn, is secured to the bonding agent layer.

3. The dentist coats the tooth's etched surface with a liquid plastic named as the bonding agent.

4.  Since it is a liquid, it's able to run in between the nooks and crannies of the tooth's etched surface

5. Then, when it's cured (hardened), as a result of it, it encases the rough microscopic projections of the etched enamel, it becomes protected (bonded) onto the tooth's surface.


Total-etch technique

This is a procedure where the etching gel is positioned over the total tooth preparation (the region of the tooth receiving the dental restoration). The foremost drawback of using this technique is related to the prospect of making postoperative tooth sensitivity (a tooth that has sensitivity after its filling has been positioned).

The sensitivity is normally associated with the tooth's dentin (etching enamel fundamentally never makes tooth sensitivity).

Though, it's not that the dentin has been unprotected to the etchant nevertheless instead that following this step and before restoration placement, the dentin is not sufficiently protected/sealed. 

If it has been (typically by placing a glutaraldehyde-containing treatment), post-op sensitivity should not be a problem.


Selective-etch technique


With this method, the etching gel is selectively placed on those sections of the tooth preparation that are composed of enamel. The exposed dentin surfaces are left unetched. However, there are sealed before the completion of the restoration placement.

The probability for postoperative sensitivity is less with this method, however, failing to etch some enamel surfaces might be a possibility.


Self-etch method

This technique includes the utilization of specially established self-etching bonding agents (DSI S7 Self-etching Bond).

The unique application of the product both etches the tooth's surface (a self-limiting method that etches both enamel and unprotected dentin) and serves as the bonding agent (and primer for the dentin too).

It's applied as one step. The use of this kind of product has benefits (it's faster, more controlled/probable dentin treatment, usually ends up in less surgical tooth sensitivity) however, it might not be useful in etching some enamel surfaces (those not freshened up by pruning them with a dental drill).

 acid-etch Information for Patients



Have you or anyone you know lost one or more permanent teeth? Losing one’s teeth could be a harrowing experience to live with, and so, it is imperative that a careful decision is made concerning the type of replacement to select when replacing it so as not to worsen the already discomforting situation.

Basically, there are three types of teeth replacement methods namely:

• Fixed bridges

• Dentures

• Dental implants

Now, the process of selecting the replacement method to use must be made having at the back of your mind the need to make it less painful to the patient. And that is what had given dental implant an edge, because it is more stable, naturally looking than the other options. 

A dental implant refers to a titanium post that your dentist surgically positions into the jawbone beneath the gum line to allow the dentist mount replacement teeth or a bridge into that area. A dental implant, unlike a denture, doesn't come loose. It is, however, important to state that the successes of dental implants are dependent on the amount and quality of bone that receives and supports them. It is for this reason that bone grafting plays a vital role in tooth replacement or implant dentistry.


What is Bone Grafting?

Bone grafting is a surgical process through which a recipient area that is deficient in bone is built-up with bone from another source. Mainly, there are four types of bone grafts:

Autografts - when the donor’s bone comes from the patient.

Allografts – this entails obtaining human bone from a licensed tissue bank

Xenografts – which  involves obtaining bone grafts from animal sources

Synthetic – a technique that uses bone grafting materials from non-organic sources


Bone Grafting Materials

From the preceding heading, we have seen the three types of bone grafting from which one could choose. We shall, however, be taking a detailed look at two most popular of these and presenting you with one outstanding product each that could ensure that you have the best of bone grafting experience when opting for either Synthetic or Xenograft bone grafting.

At DSI, we believe that regaining a beautifully intact, aesthetically comforting, fully functional and natural feeling dentition that will stand the test of time, after a tooth loss, is of immense importance for anyone who had lost a tooth or more and is seeking successful implant.


Effective Products for Dental Implant

1. DSI Syntoss

This synthetic bone grafting material ensures that dental bone grafting has a profound effect on patient outcomes.

Syntoss, a synthetic and biocompatible calcium Phosphate material with similar mechanical properties to the bone is the ideal product to be used in many clinical situations where a bone graft is required. Unlike other products, DSI Syntoss can be used with or without a membrane and has a high rate of success. It was designed to fill the space left by the missing bone and facilitates the growth of new bone tissue. It does this through a process known as ostestimulation. This product can be used to fill smaller bone defects and have almost no contraindications.

2. DSI Zenoss Bone Graft

It is common knowledge among the experts in the field of dentistry that synthetic bone is not suitable for filling ridges or large defect,  when the amount of bone loss is on the large side, or when faster regeneration is needed.

Any of the above will call for the use of a natural (xenograft) bone only or the application of a “sandwich” technique which entails mixing natural and synthetic graft in multiple layers.

So, welcome Zenoss into the world of bone grafting.

The DSI Zenoss Bone graft falls into Xenograft bone material, mentioned above, and it originates from natural bovine.

Zenoss bone graft is harvested from cows as part of a clinically controlled manufacturing process. It serves as a filler and scaffold to facilitate the growth of new bone tissue. Zenoss Xenograft is always a superior option, however, it's significantly more expensive than the synthetic version.


When should bone graft be done?

Immediately after a tooth extraction or after losing a tooth via other means is an ideal time to preserve the existing bone around the extraction socket and to promote the formation of new bone.

And you will be doing yourself a lot of good if you choose to go with any of the products mentioned above – Syntoss, when you have a concern about your budget and Zenoss when you want superiority in bone grafting and treatment – because they are sure going to ensure that you end up getting back your youthful appearance as well as restore your natural smile.

DSI-Sponge absorbs roughly 40-50 points of the weight of its liquid and adheres easily to the bleeding site.

DSI-Sponge is not toxic, hypoallergenic, it does not aggravate any immune response, and it is 100% biocompatible.

It is utilized in a wide-range of oral surgical processes, where traditional hemostatic measures are irrelevant, or unsuitable. When embedded, it is absorbed entirely within 3-4 weeks. In addition, it serves as a mechanical obstruction to bleeding, and it affects the coagulation process.

DSI-Sponge features a porous structure which stimulates the thrombocytes at the instant when the blood is in contact with the matrix of the DSI-Sponge. The thrombocytes offer an immediate response reaction which stimulates their combination. They begin to work as a catalytic agent and change the symptoms of character, for development of the new fibrin.

DSI-Sponge could be left on the bleeding site, at the appropriate time. The sponge will assist with the healing process from the wound and are absorbed wholly without later interference.

This absorption hinges upon several factors, like the amount used, degree of saturation with blood or some other fluids, and also the site of use is one of the frequently employed agents for the control of bleeding.

Unlike most regular collagen, DSI-Sponge is connected to the development of the mechanical matrix that accelerates clotting 5-8 instead of affecting the blood-clotting mechanism. DSI-Sponge dissolves in a single week and it is entirely resorbed in three or four weeks.
