Dr. DiTolla’s Clinical Tips – Vertise™ Flow
There are some truly breakthrough moments in dentistry, when something becomes so easy to do that it almost becomes fun. I remember having that feeling when I switched from lateral condensation to obturators, and from hand files to engine driven files. Well, Vertise™ Flow from Kerr provides another one of these breakthrough moments.
For the last 20 years, the routine in direct composite restorations has been: prep tooth, etch, rinse, dry, bond, cure, apply composite, cure. I’m happy to report that Kerr has changed that workflow, and it now reads: prep tooth, place Vertise Flow, cure. Done! It seems a little mind-boggling, but Vertise Flow is an etch, bonding agent and flowable composite, all in one syringe. From sealants to small Class I restorations, from a Class II liner to a simple crown buildup material, Vertise Flow does not disappoint.
