OXNARD, California--DUX Dental has announced the addition of a unit dose option to its ZONEfree line of temporary cements.
“More and more dental offices are choosing single use or unit dose products to allow for optimal asepsis,” said Stacey Williams, director of sales and marketing, DUX Dental.
"ZONEfree unit dose pouches fill that need while delivering the same exquisite results that ZONEfree temporary dental cement has become known for."

ZONEfree contains prismatic color blending nanofillers that act like tiny beads of glass to reflect the color of adjacent surfaces. Its formulation combines the esthetic benefits of reflective nanofillers and translucency to create a natural look that blends with the color of a patient’s teeth, crowns, or other surfaces around it.
In addition to the unit dose pouches, ZONEfree is available in a 4-gram automix syringe and a 15-gram dual-barrel syringe.
ZONEfree is a zinc oxide noneugenol cosmetic cement that is translucent. Yet, when ZONEfree is dispensed and applied, the cement has a pearly white appearance. This gives it enough color to allow a dentist or assistant to place it precisely, and see excess cement during clean up and removal to avoid resin build-up.
ZONEfree sets in two minutes and self-cures. There is no need for a curing light.
The manufacturer’s product number for ZONEfree Unit Dose is #27029. The product is scheduled to be available from most major dental distributors May 1, 2014. Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price is $29.50 per box of 25 pouches.
