3M ESPE announces the launch of a new resin cement designed specifically for use with glass ceramics.
New WhiteFox 3D CBCT WhiteFox is the world’s first Dental 3D CBCT system to feature calibrated Hounsfield Units, which allows for a reliable and confident analysis of the bone quality as well as a better differentiation of hard/soft tissue. The WhiteFox comes with a complete imaging software package providing various modules for nerve tracing, implant planning, bone density check, reconstructed panoramic, TMJ analysis, airway study, various 2D reconstructions, to name a few. Its large field of view (170 x 200mm) means a complete 1:1 volume is created in one exposure, without the artefacts usually created by stitching. Suitable for diagnosis in dental and medical applications, WhiteFox will cover all your needs from implantology, endodontics, orthodontics, ENT and maxillo-facial surgery. Moreover WhiteFox uses a collimated field of view together with pulsed X-rays, delivering the best quality of image with the lowest dose to the patient, combined with a very fast reconstruction algorithm.

3M ESPE introduces RelyX™ Ultimate, a new adhesive resin cement specifically designed for the cementation of glass ceramic materials. The product provides ultimate bond strength and leads to highly aesthetic results that last over time. Used in combination with the new Scotchbond™ Universal Adhesive, it reduces the number of required components and steps. The new adhesive resin cement RelyX™ Ultimate complements the existing portfolio of resin cements. When used together with Scotchbond™ Universal Adhesive, the procedure is particularly simple: an integrated dark cure activator in the cement activates the dark cure function of the adhesive, thus eliminating the need for an additional activator. Scotchbond™ Universal Adhesive also functions as a silane agent for glass ceramics as well as a zirconia and metal primer, thus eliminating the need for separate components. The cement’s automix syringe offers a variety of mixing tips that allow for convenient cementation in the mouth or even in the root canal. Independent studies show that RelyX™ Ultimate cement users benefit from high bond strengths to enamel and glass ceramics as well as low three-body wear when compared to other resin cements. Further tests show the high colour stability and toothlike fluorescence of the new cement. Aesthetic results can be obtained using the four different shades and corresponding try-in pastes.
