Temp-it and Temp-it Flow

Evaluators’ Comments

  • “I liked the adaptability – I was able to shape it very nicely.”
  • “Ready to use, easy to place, quick set.”
  • “Both versions offer the look and feel of a composite material.”
  • “I am a long time Fermit™ user who finally found a better material to switch to!”
  • “If you have used any other light-cured temporary material, this will be a distinct improvement over those previous products.”
  • “Placement was sometimes difficult.”
  • “Colors are not cosmetic.”

Unique Features

  • Light-cured, 20-second cure time
  • Sets firm yet flexible
  • Non-sticky placement
  • Low-viscosity flowable option, ideal for deep inlays
  • Elasticity allows for removal in one piece
  • Low shrinkage, after curing, of 0.07%

Clinical Tips

  • Try Temp-it Flow for repairing provisional margins.
  • I had a patient come in at the end of the day that lost a crown on #19. I used the Temp-it as a provisional crown and it worked great in a pinch until he was able to come back for the impression.
  • The blue color is great for contrast with implant screws.
  • Removal can be difficult if there are any undercuts.
  • Build up as you do a composite and cure.
  • The flow material is great for implant access holes.

Temp-it is a light-cured temporary restorative material with high elasticity. The high elasticity of this material allows for one-piece removal. It is available in two types, a high-viscosity (Temp-it) and a low-viscosity (Temp-it Flow). Temp-it is available in 3 g syringes and Temp-it Flow is available in 1.2 mL syringes. Both viscosities are available in yellow or blue shades.
