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

A: One we hear often is, “does it require a desensitizing agent, like Gluma, to reduce the incidence of post-operative sensitivity?”

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

A: When it comes to cementation there are two main causes of post-operative sensitivity: 1) use of a separate bonding agent; and 2) improper mixing of the cement. Nexus RMGI is self-adhesive, so it does not require a bonding agent. In addition, Nexus RMGI has an automix syringe delivery system, which ensures the cement is properly mixed every time, resulting in optimal physical properties with no post-operative sensitivity.

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

A: RMGI is the least technique sensitive cement on the market. In addition, RMGI cements have the best long-term clinical success while also being a low-cost alternative to resin cements. When appropriate, we think RMGI cements should be clinicians’ first choice.

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

A: There are three complaints with the majority of RMGI cements on the market today: poor cleanup, low bond strengths and poor esthetics. Nexus RMGI’s Nexus Technology provides improved cleanup and esthetics while its dual adhesive technology drives its bond strengths to all substrates. The product also has the option to tack cure to expedite gel state, so excess cement can be quickly and easily removed. The stability of our initiator system-combined with the fact that

Nexus RMGI is less soluble-results in a cement that is more color stable, which results in better esthetics. The product’s improved bond strengths combined with enhanced physical properties are indicative of superior marginal integrity, which results in better sealing and lower incidences of secondary caries at the margins.
