Multilink® Automix “Easy” Now Available Easier Excess Cement Clean-up With High Bond Strengths Amherst, NY (January 5, 2009) – In response to market demands, Ivoclar Vivadent is pleased to introduce Multilink® Automix “Easy”. This new “Easy Clean-Up” formulation of the clinically proven self-curing luting composite with light-curing option now offers extended clean-up time for those dentists choosing to pre-polymerize excess material with a dental curing light. Additionally, dentists will still recognize all of the Multilink Automix advantages: high immediate bond strengths; efficient, durable adhesion; good marginal adaptation and effective sealing of the dentin; uncomplicated application technique; and an ability to cement restorations made from metal, metal-ceramic, all-ceramic, and composite materials. To use the new Multilink Automix “Easy Clean-Up” formulation and “Quarter Technique” to remove excess cement, dentists simply light-cure excess material for 2 to 4 seconds per quarter surface (ie, mesio-oral, disto-oral, mesiobuccal, disto-buccal). This causes the excess cement to obtain a gel-like consistency so that it can be easily removed with a scaler. Due to its patented, hydrolytically stable phosphoric acids (acidic monomers), Multilink Automix “Easy” is capable of meeting the expectations of (more)
dentists and their patients regarding high bond strength and efficient, durable adhesion. Within only 10 minutes, Multilink Automix “Easy” establishes a reliable and long-lasting bond to a large variety of restorative materials. What’s more, Multilink Automix continues to be ideal for cases that require fast and reliable self-curing (chemical curing) and/or do not allow cementation to be completed with light-curing due to restricted access to light (eg, oxide ceramics). Multilink Automix “Easy” is available in system packs that include the Multilink® Primer A/B in shades opaque, yellow and transparent, the metal/zirconia primer, Monobond-S, the Automix syringe, and various accessories. Refills of each Multilink Automix “Easy” shade syringe, as well as the Primers, Monobond-S, and mixing tips, also are available separately.
