Conclusion

Reviewed by 20 evaluation teams and used on 174 patients and more than 225 teeth, Gluma PowerGel was well received by all team members. All evaluators were very pleased with the great results they received while using the product, and all liked that the Gluma PowerGel was green and could be easily seen during placement and to ensure it was well rinsed. During the evaluation, Gluma PowerGel was used for multiple applications including use in provisional and final restorative procedures –which were reported as the top indications in evaluators’ practices. Eight of the clinicians reported use before and after whitening, and ten hygienists used it prior to scaling and root planning. Six clinicians said they have been using Gluma for years, while 4 said prior to the evaluation they had never used a desensitizer. Some evaluators wished PowerGel did not have to be rinsed after use, one hygiene evaluator wished it had a thicker consistency, and an assistant evaluator said it would be great if it came in a variety of shades. Overall, the product was rating very highly, and the CPS Team give Gluma Desensitizer PowerGel by Heraeus a 5 Diamond rating.
