May 24, 2006
First no-drip HEMA/glutaraldehyde desensitizer can be used under restorations or any time dentin is exposed.

SHELTON, Connecticut--Centrix introduces Glu/SenseT, the first no-drip HEMA/glutaraldehyde dentin desensitizer for use under restorations or any time dentin is exposed.

It is easier and faster to use and provides more control and accuracy than the competition.

The company has developed an innovative new delivery system featuring a syringe with foam-tipped needle for faster, easier direct placement. Glu/Sense is the only glutaraldehyde desensitizer in a gel formula that will not spill or drip onto sensitive tissue.

Glu/Sense will not interfere with bonding agents, requires only one coat, promotes adhesion, and minimizes microleakage. The new product is universally compatible and works with all materials and dentin bonding systems.

When used under restorations Glu/Sense reduces the chance of postoperative pain; it may also be used to treat hypersensitive dentin even when no final restoration is to be placed.

Glu/Sense is available in a kit containing 6 x 1ml syringes with 60 SofNeedle Tips.
