Hemaseal & Cide Desensitizer
Hemaseal & Cide with 4% chlorhexidine is formulated to eliminate postoperative sensitivity—precluding the need to do remakes. This desensitizer is said to deliver superior disinfection of preparations and a reduction of microleakage. Chlorhexidine has been shown to prolong bonds to dentin, so using Hemaseal & Cide enhances and prolongs the bond strength. This product was the only one shown to improve bond strength with self-etch and total-etch products in a published study of 9 desensitizers (study available upon request). Unlike some desensitizers, Hemaseal & Cide is soft-tissue friendly, and the bulk bottle is designed for ease of use.
