Dentists around the country are saying good things about Calibra® Universal from DENTSPLY Caulk.

Among the benefits of the product, dentists can now benefit from the swiftness of tack curing without the stress of overcuring. Calibra Universal offers a wide tack cure window of up to 10 seconds and an extended 45-second gel phase, which is said to provide dentists the ability for a more thorough and effective cleanup. The material also is formulated to deliver optimal strength and esthetics.

“Calibra Universal Self-Adhesive Resin Cement is the ultimate cement. It is easy to use, fast, and simple to clean up. I can simply take the crown or veneer from my assistant who has preloaded it with the Calibra cement, and put it to place. My assistant tacks it in place with five seconds on each side. I then pick off three or four big chunks of overflow and head to the next room. The assistant does the final set and dismisses the patient. Our patients love it. It is fast, and they don't have to experience all the interproximal ‘picking’ that they did with our old cement. Easy for the doctor, easier for the assistant/hygienist, easiest for the patient. It's a no brainer!” – G. Cochran, DDS, Napoleon, Ohio

“Calibra Universal cement has been a great addition to my practice. It has all of the desirable properties of my former self-adhesive resin cement such as excellent bond strength, minimal sensitivity, and dual-curing. Calibra Universal cement does not have the undesirable characteristics of my former cement such as the anxiety caused by a fast and firm spot curing phase that would often make it difficult to remove all excess cement. Calibra Universal cement allows for a generous spot curing and has an extended gel phase that makes clean up quick, easy, and predictable every time.” – W. McBride, DDS, Dubuque, Iowa
