3M ESPE announces the launch of RelyX™ Unicem 2 Automix Self-Adhesive Resin Cement
Inventor of Self-Adhesive Resin Cements Introduces Next Generation
Enhanced formulation provides increased convenience, better color stability, bond strength and moisture tolerance
ST. PAUL, Minn. – (August 30, 2010) 3M ESPE announces the launch of RelyX™ Unicem 2 Automix Self-Adhesive Resin Cement. This new material represents the next generation of self-adhesive resin cements and builds upon the long-term experience gained from its predecessor, combining convenience with reliable clinical performance. The cement will be available in an automix syringe with various application tips.
The newcomer is based upon the same chemistry as RelyX™ Unicem Self-Adhesive Universal Resin Cement, the most clinically proven self-adhesive cement worldwide. It has been applied more than 50 million times and was subject to numerous clinical and laboratory studies. This year, The Dental Advisor awarded RelyX Unicem Cement the “2010 Top Long-term Performer,” which is one of many awards the cement has received. RelyX Unicem 2 Automix Cement follows in the footsteps of its predecessor, but the enhanced formula provides improved color stability, bond strength and moisture tolerance. It also offers low post-operative sensitivity and high long-term stability. In addition, excess cement can be removed quickly and easily.
RelyX Unicem 2 Automix Cement’s enhanced formulation offers more convenience due to its automix delivery system. The syringe extrudes the ready-mixed cement through mixing tips, which are available in different sizes: regular mixing tips for standard applications, endo tips ensuring a safe and void-free procedure when working in the root canal and special intra-oral tips for the cementation of inlays and onlays. As with the first-generation cement, the need for any pre-treatment of the tooth, such as etching, priming and bonding, is eliminated.
RelyX Unicem 2 Automix Cement is suited for the permanent cementation of all-ceramic, composite or metal inlays, onlays, crowns and bridges, as well as posts and screws. It can also be used to cement restorations to implant abutments, as well as Maryland, inlay and onlay bridges.
With its combination of proven technology and innovative features, RelyX Unicem 2 Automix Cement is an exciting new material with the potential to further improve and simplify procedures in the dental practice.
