Q: What is the most frequent question you hear about the dental cement category?

A: What cement do I use where? With the vast number of cements on the market today, cementation select ion can become very confusing. Should the restoration be bonded in place, or cemented in place?

When the choice is to “bond,” most dentists prefer to have one adhesive luting system that can be used for all types of restorations, regardless of indication.

Q: How does your product seek to answer that question?

A: Multilink Automix is a universal adhesive luting-composite system that can be used to bond all types of restorative materials to tooth structure (e.g. metal, zirconia, alumina, composite, lithium disilicate, etc.). Multilink Automix luting-composite features a self-curing initiator system with the option to light cure.

As a result, the cement will polymerize completely without exposure to a curing light and regardless of the opacity, shade or thickness of the restoration. When exposure to a curing light is possible (e.g. curing through IPS e.max), the material may be light cured to speed the cementation process. In addition, the self-curing, self-etching dentin/enamel primer generates immediate, high-level bond strengths to both dentin and enamel leading to long-term success.

Q: What about this category helps dentists practice better dentistry?

A: The introduction of new adhesive-luting systems with faster, easy application has led to more dentists bonding their restorations in place. This leads to higher bond strengths, improved seal at the margin and longer-lasting restorations, especially in the category of all-ceramics.

Q: How is your product leading innovation in this category?

A: With a focus on an easy placement procedure, by limiting the number of steps without compromising bond strength or other physical properties, Multilink Automix has become the leading adhesive luting-composite system in North America.
