Aug. 4, 2010
New Hero pit and fissure sealant features Embrace technology.
CULVER CITY, California--Discus Dental has announced release of Hero, a new pit and fissure sealant featuring Embrace technology.

The technology allows Hero to bond to slightly moist teeth. Hero features evidence-based technology backed by more than six6 years of research for retention and carries prevention.

Hero helps hygienists and pediatric dentists deliver improved carries prevention care to their patients. The sealant also provides a source for fluoride and re-mineralizes teeth.

“Discus is excited to add an innovative sealant to its growing list of oral hygiene product offerings, “said Robert Cartagena, hief operating officer of Discus. “Helping clinicians prevent caries and periodontal disease is our ultimate goal, and Hero is a step along that path.”

Hero’s chemistry provides bond strength without the extra time and money required for a separate bonding step. It creates a margin-free seal around pits and fissures and integrates with the tooth to create a tough barrier against microleakage.

Intended for pediatrics, Hero’s hydrophilic formula has low technique sensitivity and a fluoride releasing formulation helping to achieve the same long-term protective results for each patient. Additionally, Hero is Bisphenol A free.

Hero is available as a two-syringe package (1.2 ml each) with 25, .22 gauge tips and a syringe (3 ml) of Discus’ Matrixx Etchant with 25, .20 gauge tips.
