RelyX Luting Plus Automix

A Resin-Modified Glass Ionomer Cement

Introduction

“RelyX Luting Plus”, by 3M ESPE is a resin-modified glass ionomer cement in a paste/paste formula in a new Automix Dispenser. Like the original product in the “Clicker Dispenser”, “RelyX Luting Plus Automix” cement has an inherent ability to provide a molecular bond to tooth structure to tooth structure without the use of a separate tooth conditioner. There’s virtually no post-op sensitivity, and it offers sustained fluoride release to benefit caries-prone patients.

Conclusion

The CPS evaluation team consisting of 25 offices cemented over 166 restorations with the RelyX Luting Plus cement by 3M ESPE. All team-members felt the change in dispenser was well worth the wait. Every assistant commented on not having to mix cement anymore. When asked if changing from the previous delivery system with the clicker to the new RelyX Luting Plus in a syringe, they said they felt they didn’t lose any material and felt better about the proper ratios and mixing. Some thought the RelyX Luting Plus cement was too easy and removal of cement was “a piece of cake” from one of the dentist. Several commented that the mixing, setting and working time was perfect with no sensitivity reported. A few evaluators commented that they would like to see a variation in shade selection such as an A2.
