Formula removes smear layer and seals the tubules and desensitizes in one step.
Phoenix Dental’s Super Seal is a formula that removes the smear layer and seals the tubules and desensitizes in one step.Because of its acidic nature, Super Seal demineralizes the smear layer (organic and mineral debris) and the peritubular dentin (outermost ring of very hard mineralized dentin of each tubule complex). Dentin, enamel, and cementum of the tooth are each composed of high concentrations of calcium hydroxyapatite, which is alkaline in pH. Super Seal and calcium hydroxyapatite react with each other, leaving a fine granular precipitate within the dentinal tubules at depths of 7 μm to 12 μm and on the surfaces of the vital dentin, enamel, and cementum. This precipitate is biologically bound to the vital dentin substrate, leading to a long-lasting seal.Total-etch or self-etch: the debate continuesBecause Super Seal is water-based, it also rewets the substrate to re-establish the collagen for bonding. Super Seal will also not build-up film thickness. Super Seal:• acts as a desensitizer and wetting agent• works better than 97% of the time to occlude dentinal tubules1• begins working immediately on contactFor more information, visit www.phoenixdental.com or call (877) 463-9905.To comment on this product, go to community.pennwelldentalgroup.com/.
