artBloc® Temp is an unique monochrome tooth-coloured block made of highly cross-linked interpenetrated OMP®-N (Organic Modified Polymer Network). Without inorganic fillers, this material provides high plaque resistance and EN ISO 10477 compliant flexural strength of more than 90 MPa. Furthermore this material has been awarded with best test results regarding breaking strength values in the group of millable, tooth-shaded temporary acrylic blocks for CEREC® and inLab® amounting to 335 N and guarantees process reliability com-pared to conventional temporary chairside C+B materials.
Preprosthetic treatment and soft-tissue management
In the context of a preprosthetic treatment plan, the artBloc® Temp is intended for temporary restorations, until the requirements for a final prosthetic solution are established with clinical and prosthetically acceptable parameters. Due to its plaque resistance, artBloc® Temp is the optimum treatment regarding soft-tissue management. It can also be used for re-establishing the occlusal support field for therapeutic restorations when correcting temporomandibular disorders.
