High strength, high polishability, superior handling
Permite – the non-gamma 2 admix alloy unsurpassed by any other.
Over 400 million successful Permite restorations have been placed since its release worldwide in 1975.
High Compressive Strength
Permite’s high compressive strength minimizes the risk of fracturing the restoration. High compressive strength ensures a tough and durable long lasting restoration.
The microleakage for Permite is essentially zero.(3)
Extensive microleakage has been related to increased post operative sensitivity.(2)
Optimal handling characteristics
In the Dental Advisor Plus(4), Permite received a 98% rating for consistency of mix, ease of loading, placement in preparations, condensability, burnishability, quality of interproximal contact, carvability and setting characteristics. The resulting restorations are smooth and have excellent margin adaptation, especially after burnishing. All consultants said they would recommend Permite to their colleagues.(4)
Not affected by moisture
Permite exhibits the best sealing qualities with no danger of excessive delayed expansion if accidentally contaminated with water-based fluids. Hence, it would seem prudent to select an alloy such as Permite for retrograde fillings.(3)
Greater choice of setting times and larger choice of capsule sizes
The working and setting times allow large restorations to be condensed and carved without difficulty.(4)
The plungers denote the spill size:
NOTE: 5 spill only available in regular set. ECT (extended carving time), only available in Permite 1, 2 and 3 spill.
The rest of the capsule denotes the setting speed:
