NoCord VPS is my go-to material for patients with thin gingival tissue where packing cord could cause tissue damage or gingival recession. NoCord VPS is a great choice for patients who have had LNAP or other periodontal procedure within the last year where you do not want to disturb the maturing gingival attachment but there is a need get an accurate impression to fabricate a crown.
I have been using Centrix products for several years and have been consistently impressed with the quality. Recently I received a sample of the NoCord VPS Impression System and decided to give it a try. The material has worked extremely well; impressions are better, plus my crowns & bridgework need a lot less adjusting! With the impression and retraction material in one step, the savings are invaluable. I used another material for many years, but now I am very happy using NoCord VPS for my crown & bridgework. I recommend it highly!
NoCord is revolutionary! It is such a relief not to have to pack cord in most all situations. NoCord has changed the way we practice dentistry. There is less stress, less time, less hassle now, that translates into more enjoyment in the delivery of dental care!
NoCord VPS. Finally, a truly 1-step impression material. No cord. No moisture. No wasted time. Just a clean and clear margin every time!
For every impression I take, I no longer pack cord, apply a separate hemostatic agent or add a retraction paste to the already hectic schedule of a general dentist. I simply place NoCord Wash around the crown prep and gingiva, add NoCord MegaBody Tray material to my impression tray, seat the impression tray. That's it, very easy, saves time, and produces excellent results.
NoCord VPS is a trifecta for impression materials; sulcus expansion, hemostasis and accuracy. NoCord is the next generation of impression materials. There are less steps and cost because the impression material does more.
Through 30 years of clinical practice, having tried and used every impression material and gingival retraction method that's been available, I have found the NoCord VPS impression material that eliminates separate retraction and hemostasis steps, to be the easiest method of saving time when taking impressions I am able to achieve the best impressions I have been able to get in my career.
