Consultants’ Comments

  • “Excellent cement and super easy to use.”
  • “It tack cured quickly. Clean-up was perfect and there was no sticky residue.”
  • “The simplicity made it a pleasure to use. I like not needing the steps of etching/bonding, as well as the product’s consistency.”
  • “Super thin viscosity and film thickness made it easy to dispense and spread along margins.”
  • “I liked the calcium and fluoride release.”
  • “No post-operative sensitivity.”
  • “It was too opaque or creamy for some cases.”

Clinical Tips

  • Work quickly after placing the material in the restoration.
  • Tack cure is fast. Don’t tack cure for more than 3 seconds as the cement will become difficult to remove.
  • Use a micro brush to distribute the cement.
  • Make sure you clean the substrate with alcohol after try-in.

Description

TheraCem Self-Adhesive Resin Cement is a self-etching, self-adhesive, calcium- and fluoride-releasing, radiopaque, dual-cured resin cement. The cement is automixed and dispensed in tips. It requires no etching, priming or bonding of the prepared surfaces and offers a strong bond to zirconia. The cement can be tack cured for 2 to 3 seconds for easy cleanup and removal of excess cement. TheraCem Self-Adhesive Resin Cement is available in a natural shade in dual-syringes (8 g) together with mixing, intraoral and root canal tips.
