Description

Diamond Snappy is a hand-mixed glass ionomer cement for Class l and Class ll restorations in deciduous teeth. Ideal for children.

Diamond Snappy provides dentists with a clinically proven restorative material. Available in a pigment free aesthetic shade it is chemical curing. Diamond restorations can be placed in one increment, saving time and avoiding the creation of stresses within the restoration that can be caused by incremental build-up using composites. Both of these advantages also contribute to its relative lack of post-operative sensitivity compared with bonded composites. Fluoride release is another significant advantage.

Diamond is also far less susceptible to moisture around the operating site, partly due to its rapid chemical snap-set and its healthier, mercury-free composition. It quite categorically adheres to both enamel and dentine, without the need for acid etching – saving time and additional expense. Finally,it is radiopaque and there is no polymerisation shrinkage and consequent cracking.

Packaging: 10g/7ml

Step by Step Guide to using Diamond Snappy

When placed, the fresh cement is opaque. Translucency develops over the first couple of weeks

Step 1 – remove caries and prepare the cavity with minimal tooth reduction

Step 2 – clean the cavity with water and gently dry. Remove smear layer by applying Kemdent Diamond Carve liquid for 15 seconds using a cotton pellet. Wash and gently dry.

Step 3 – place a vaselined matrix band, if required.

Step 4 – shake the bottle of powder to fluff the powder. Dispense the powder and liquid onto either one of the mixing sheets provided, or a glass slab at room temperature in the proportion of one scoop of powder to one drop of liquid. Do not compress the powder.

Squeeze the liquid bottle gently to clear the opening, then hold the bottle vertically to avoid air bubbles and dispense one drop. For larger cavities, use multiple quantities of powder and liquid in the same 1:1 ratio.

Using a plastic spatula, mix half of the powder with the liquid to form a smooth, creamy paste. Then, mix in the remaining powder to form a firm, putty-like consistency. Do not make it dry or crumbly. In the case of multiple scoops of powder, incorporate each, in turn, into the liquid, making sure the final cement has a smooth and firm consistency

It should take approximately 30-40 seconds to mix them together. Due to Diamond Snappy’s snap-set and to achieve good adhesion to the enamel and dentine, always mix fresh material for each cavity.

After dispensing, the assistant should replace the caps tightly and start to clean the instruments and mixing slab before the material has set.

Step 6 – place the mixed material into the cavity and pack into place using conventional packing instruments. Diamond Snappy has a firm, putty-like consistency, which makes it easy to pack. Once placed, carve as desired. The working time from start of mixing is approximately 1 minute and 50 seconds.

Step 7 – six minutes after start of mixing, excess material can be removed using either fine diamond finishing burs or diamond impregnated rubber cups, irrigated and water cooled.

Step 8 – as a precaution, instruct the patient not to bite on the restoration for about one hour
