Mydent International’s newest addition to its preventative line is the DEFEND Desensitizer. A universal desensitizing agent, this product can be placed under dental cements as well as temporary, provisional or final restorative materials to reduce postoperative sensitivity. It can also be used for desensitization of amalgam restorations, placed either conventional or bonded.
DEFEND Desensitizer contains HEMA to aid bonding primers to penetrate etched dentin. The HEMA base in DEFEND Desensitizer helps seal tubules, giving immediate relief from pain due to hypersensitivity.
Most dentin resin bonding materials will benefit from the DEFEND Desensitizer application. Its application reliably reduces post-op sensitivity by supporting the collagen framework for easier penetration of the adhesive, thus enhancing the dentin bond.
Offered in a 10ml Bottle, DEFEND Desensitizer is available through most dental dealers.
