Hemaseal & Cide Glutaraldehyde-Free Desensitizer/Cleanser
Advantage Dental Products, Inc
Every dental practice that provides restorative care can use a desensitizer that eliminates postoperative sensitivity and prolongs the bond to dentin.
Hemaseal & Cide Desensitizer is ideal for direct bonding procedures and crown preparations. It can be used every time a temporary or permanent crown is placed.
The material is free of glutaraldehyde, and an independent testing laboratory report indicates Hemaseal & Cide Desensitizer showed twice the antimicrobial activity of 2 popular glutaraldehyde-based desensitizers. Additionally, it is lower priced and cannot burn the free gingiva/soft tissue, like glutaraldehydes. It is available in bulk bottles and unit dose.
Shown to increase bond strength and decrease microleakage, the desensitizer is formulated to provide optimal antimicrobial properties. The 4% chlorhexidine is a major differentiator, as chlorhexidine can lower the surface tension of water. It is a linear molecule with a dual pole–positive charge and is attracted to the negatively charged tooth. As one positive pole is drawn into a negatively charged tooth, the other positive pole is available to attach to the negative cell wall of the bacteria. As it infuses the bond surface, it also brings 2-hydroxylethyl methacrylate (HEMA) and water with it, providing optimal antimicrobial activity and improved bonding or cementation.
