From PANAVIA EX to PANAVIA V5, Kuraray’s flagship product line of cements continues to evolve to offer reliable adhesion, enhanced ease of use, and superior esthetics.
Dentistry has certainly evolved in the years since Kuraray developed the phosphate monomer MDP. But over the past 4 decades, it has rooted itself in restorative dentistry as the triedand- true ingredient that clinicians rely on for strong adhesion to tooth structure as well as metals and zirconia. MDP is a key ingredient in the manufacturer’s flagship PANAVIA™ line of cements, which continues to evolve in line with a growing variety of indirect restorative materials from which to choose. One example of this evolution is PANAVIA™ SA Cement Universal, one of the first true universal self-adhesive resin cements to hit the market. In addition to the original MDP monomer, it incorporates the LCSi monomer, a silane-based carbon chain in a dual-barrel system that forms a chemical bond with glass and ceramic materials.
