I just found out that Hydro-cast tissue conditioner has been discontinued. Does anyone know what would closely compare to it?
Does anyone have any they would like to sell? I have a couple of Docs that are panicking!

Because of the health warning? I know I'm posting in a thread/topic I know nothing about, but I'm just practicing not being distracted by this forum and focusing on getting a lot of work done :) :)

Thanks. I'm surprised Dentsply has Lynal since they've discontinued just about everything else.

Edit: I thought I posted this yesterday, and found it here this morning ready to post. Duh!
Uh, I'm guilty of the same, and even leaving a couple in the approval queue overnight when I'd forget to save before exiting.

So I've done some digging. Sultan quietly discontinued Hydrocast back in August, people are just now finding out because the stock has run out at the supply houses. I called Sultan and they are recommending Lynal. Of course they would, Dentsply acquired Sultan a few years ago. The only thing with using Lynal for a tissue conditioning impression is that it has to be replaced every 48 hours. Hydocast could be left in longer and be refreshed as needed. We just had a case this week that the patient was in Hydrocast for 7 months while waiting for her opposing to heal.

Oh, and Lynal is just about double the price.

I know, but it's what we got.

There are a couple of others, but I don't know how well or even if they compare to hydrocast. GC America has Coe Comfort and Uncle Hank has their own brand.

I've heard good from a couple GPs about Coe Comfort, but never dealt with it.
