Strong Cement Releases Calcium and Fluoride

Dentistry Today


Bisco Dental‘s dual-cured, self-adhesive TheraCem resin cement continuously releases both calcium and fluoride ions. It’s indicated for luting crowns, bridges, inlays, onlays, and prefabricated metal, nonmetal, and fiber posts. Also, it transitions from acidic to alkaline pH in minutes. Plus, Bisco formulated it for quick and easy removal while providing greater shear bond strength in lithium disilicate, titanium, stainless steel, and zirconia applications.


No priming or etching is required for strong bonds with zirconia and most substrates either. According to Bisco, TheraCem also is very radiopaque, making it easy to identify on radiographs for quick and effective diagnosis. Plus, its auto-mix, dual syringe is designed to provide a consistent mix for immediate delivery. Each 8-gram dual-syringe package comes with 15 mixing tips and intraoral tips as well.
