Yes it can. I think it's easy to clean up but I'll let Flem give you his experiences. He's used it a lot.

I like the clean up better. To me, it seems to flow a little better than MaxCem. And no obnoxious smell of MaxCem. Give it a try.

John, are you using it exclusively ( the only product you use) for Luting & for core buildups?

Do you ever do the Marshall technique ( Sim> flowable> cure> buildup material except enamel layer> enamel layer with usual composite)? If so, I assume you tried it with anchor?

This Maxcem everyone mentions, it that a RMGI?

Yes.

I do not. I like to have the entire restoration made of the posterior material.

This Maxcem everyone mentions, it that a RMGI?

No, it is a "self-etching" resin cement. Maxcem does NOT etch enamel worth a darn. It and Unicem (the 3M analogue) are far better when used with an adhesive. The best these can get is only half of the usual enamel bond strength.

John I currently am using Simplicity and Core Paste from Den-Mat for my core build-ups. How would switching to Simplicity and Anchor be better?
For cementing crowns we use mainly the old Vitremer powder/liquid now Rely-R-X. What are the advantages of switching to Anchor? I imagine Anchor would be more expensive. In cases with minimal retention would Anchor hold better? I know when I get an old crown that has come off and the margins are okay but the tooth needs a build-up Anchor sounds like a good solution.

Loaded question, Scottie. You know that I am going to say that Anchor is clearly better! Smile

I still think that one is fine with RelyX Luting Plus for PFM's. That's what I use. I think you'll like the handling of Anchor- it really is nice.

Maybe it would useful to convass those who also use Anchor- like Flem.

Hi John
Yes I sort of figured you'd say Simplicity and Anchor was better than Simplicity and Den-Mat Core Paste but I was wondering if you had actually compared the two of them. Also when you cement a crown with Anchor does it hold like Panavia? I had a situation today where I did the endo and recemented the old crown. I used Simplicity and Core Paste but I thought about Anchor.

Why don't we let Flem and Dan add their two cents about this?

Yes it will hold like Panavia. It won't snap set like Core Paste, but I am not saying Core Paste is bad.

Scottie,

I am using Simplicity/Anchor on almost all my CERECs. If they had a shade in transparent/clear, it would be all the time. I'm using it quite a bit for PFMs also, having sealed the prep already with Simplicity. Give it a try, I believe you will like the combination. Cool

Eric,

I start waking up at that time usually, office things start rolling through my head and usually it's useless to try to go back to sleep. So I check ALL the late posters here and DT and put in good words for APEX products! Cool
