Doxa Dental's Ceramir Cement has 3 Year Clinical Findings in Upcoming Compendium

Last week I published a post about my clinical experience with Doxa Dental's Ceramir cement.
 
One of the great things I get to do in my role as DPR Technology Editor and "Technology Evangelist" is to see, explore, and use some really great materials and devices.  Ceramir has been one of those products.  I always try to do my research meticulously and give the opinions of a guy who is "in the trenches" everyday and doing the same clinical procedures as everyone else.
 
However, there is also the research science that is *so* important to what we do and can help validate the clinical experiences of the end user.
 
That's why I was excited when I received word a couple of days ago that a new study showing 3 Year Clinical Findings would be arriving in the next issue of Compendium.  It's always nice when clinical experience receives research validation.
 
I highly recommend reading the entire article that is available here on the dentalaegis website.  It is well worth the read.
 
Here is the Conclusions section of the study:
 

Conclusions

After 3 years of clinical observation, Ceramir C&B performed well and in a clinically acceptable fashion as a luting agent for permanent cementation of all-metal (high noble metal) and ceramic-fused-to-metal (noble metal) crowns and fixed partial dentures.

Laboratory retention measured through a clinically simulated tensile test method demonstrated equivalent or superior retentive force values for this cement, using zinc phosphate or conventional glass-ionomer cement as a control reference cement to lute both metal-based and all-ceramic substrate crown copings.

In conclusion, the results of this clinical evaluation combined with the extensive body of laboratory and biocompatibility data clearly indicates that this new cement chemistry appears quite acceptable for its stated clinical uses, and its bioactive properties may offer promising and new clinical advantages for the future.
