HOUSTON, TEXAS, February 12, 2015 — Leading dental product innovator NuSmile, Ltd. today announced that it will be distributing free samples of its new BioCem Universal BioActive Cement at the Chicago Dental Society Midwinter Meeting February 26-28, 2015. Dentists who experience the product’s ease of use and quick bonding power during brief demonstrations at the company’s booth will be given a 2.5 ml BioCem sample to take back to their practices. BioCem’s booth number is 4808.
“With most truly superior products, using is believing, and that’s certainly the case with BioCem,” said Diane Johnson Krueger, NuSmile president and CEO. “We are excited to let dental professionals witness firsthand just how easily BioCem handles, and how quickly it creates a strong bond to ceramic crowns. They’ll get a good sense of this when they visit our booth, and they’ll really appreciate the BioCem difference when they’re able to place 10 to 15 crowns with our free sample once they return to their practice.”
Mark Binford, NuSmile’s senior vice president for new product development, said, “The appeal of BioCem is that it delivers biological benefits without sacrificing bond strength or practice productivity.” He explained that BioCem forms a superior bond between dentin and zirconia, lithium silicates and disilicates, or leucite glass ceramic materials. Importantly, he added, it forms hydroxyapatite that actively mimics, and is available to replenish, the physical and chemical properties of the natural tooth and surrounding structures. It also features a unique shock-absorbing rubberized resin component that makes it much tougher than traditional cements. Additionally, BioCem releases phosphate, calcium and fluoride ions into the oral environment, and it has been formulated and packaged into a convenient, simple-to-use, low-waste delivery system. In contrast, first generation calcium aluminate–based, hydroxyapatite-forming cements release neither fluoride nor phosphates, and their delivery systems can be wasteful.
“We are very excited about the benefits BioCem brings to dental practices and their patients,” says Ms. Krueger. “We feel that its superior bond strength in the most popular anterior and posterior full-coverage esthetic restorations, coupled with its unsurpassed biological benefits, efficiency, and cost-effectiveness, truly makes it the ultimate universal cement.”
