Adverse Reaction Reporting Project (ARRP)
The Adverse Reaction Reporting Project (ARRP) is a national survey of
adverse reactions to dental materials in the UK and is being undertaken
at the School of Clinical Dentistry, University of Sheffield. The project
collects data relating to possible adverse reactions seen in primary dental
care and dental laboratories. The frequently asked questions section of
the site contains useful information on the side effects associated with
dental materials and there are links to relevant bibliographic references.
Fact sheets and posters are available for downloading in PDF requiring
Adobe Acrobat Reader.

Super Hydrophilic VPS Materials
In the moist environment of your patient's mouth the only
way to ensure you capture the fine details of your patients' real tooth
anatomy is by using an impression material that isn't hindered by moisture.
PolySil Super Hydrophilic is a VPS impression material that
specifically formulated to deliver excellent wettablility, to significantly
enhance your accuracy by delivering impressions that capture and reproduce
every last detail of the anatomy.
This photo clearly depicts the lowcontact angle of the
water bead, which shows the superior super hydrophilic properties of PolySil
when compared to a regular hydrophilic VPS material.
All PolySil products feature SciCan's innovative "Controlled Flow"
formulations, which do not slump or pull away during placement. They stay
precisely where you place them in your patient's mouth or in the tray
ensuring a more accurate impression and fit the very first time.
PolySil Super Hydrophilic Polysiloxane material fulfills the complete
range of your impression needs- from single unit crowns to multiple-unit
cases. PolySil is also suitable for all applications and impression-taking
And since all PolySil products are hypoallergenic, you reduce
patient irritation caused by allergic reactions, along with unpleasant
tastes and odors.
Unsurpassed dimensional stability for improved accurancy and tear strength.
Fast intra-oral times to reduce your patient's discomfort.
Outstanding elastic recovery.
Truly disinfectable impressions without distortion or expansion in disinfecting
PolySil Super Hydrophilic comes in a wide assortment of
viscosities, including light, medium, heavy and monophase. It's also available
in regular set, two minutes, one minute and fast set, and all come packaged

If you prefer to use a putty technique, PolySil is available
in soft or firm putty, packaged in easily handled 260ml tubs of base and
PolySil's light body (wash) works well with heavy body and
putty materials, with sufficient color distinction for simplified reading
of the margins. Since the material comes in both fast and normal setting
times, you can choose the right material for your procedure.
For accurate, true-anatomy impressions, nothing beats PolySil
bite registration materials. The combination of super hydrophilic properties
and Controlled Flow add up to a selection of registration materials that
is truly unique.
When you use Polysil Rigid BR, you minimize your patients'
discomfort with a 45-second snap set. Even more importantly, Rigid BR
provides you with a bite registration that doesn't tear, dislodge from
the mouth, bend or distort during lab processing.
PolySil Rigid BR material:
Is ideal for occlusion and other matrices (for all impression
taking procedures requiring rigid fast setting) Snap sets (no distortion
and more accurate) Possesses exceptional elasticity and minimal distortion
(for both short and long term PolySil Rigid BR material
PolySil TransBite registration material delivers an unmatched combination
of physical and clinical properties, along with the added benefit of transparency.
TransBite is an ideal material for performing occlusal templates,
labial matrices and other custom matrices for light cured materials. When
using the TransBite Custom Matrix to duplicate real tooth anatomy prior
to cutting, you significantly simplify and enhance the contour and finish
of any light cured composite restoration. And, TransBite is a superior
transmission impression material for orthodontic brackets when utilizing
the direct technique.
TransBite Transparent VPS registration material also provides:
Complete visibility of occlusion at chairside and lab
Fabrication of occlusal templates templates and labial matrices for light
and cured composite restorations and chairside veneers (using the TransBite
Custom Matrix technique)
Fabrication of transmission impressions for orthodontic brackets using
the indirect technique
2-minute set times in mouth (minimizing patient discomfort and potential
Outstanding elastic recovery, unsurpassed compression set times and minimal
distortions short and long term.
