Conclusion

CPS evaluation team felt theRelyX Unicem 2 was a much-awaited change. All felt the syringe was incredibly easy to dispense with the appropriate amount of cement.  One evaluator commented on the difference of waste with the older version of capsules and saving time with elimination of the triturator. All liked to additional tips for the post space. Working and Setting times were accurate to the directions. One evaluator recommended not cementing more that 2 or 3 restorations at a time. 2 evaluators felt the consistency was harder to clean up than the previous version where another felt is was a similar feel and therefore was an easier transition. Sensitivity was slight and noted no more than other resin cements. One evaluator would like to see the consistency increased while another would like the setting time faster.
