DesensiMAX Instructions: Instructions for Use

Instructions for Use

DesensiMAX is a powerful desensitizer that acts to prevent bond degradation, rewets the tooth surface prior to bonding, and optimizes the tooth / restoration interface. DesensiMAX has been formulated to desensitize instantly while providing so much more. Bonding protocols often call for a “moist” or “shiny” or “damp” surface for bonding. DesensiMAX eliminates the guess work by rewetting to the proper level every time. DesensiMAX contains powerful disinfecting components to prevent bacteria from causing secondary decay. Finally, DesensiMAX provides fluoride and a proprietary ingredient to the surface of the tooth to create a zone of inhibition and prevent bond degradation caused by the formation of matrix metallopeptidase (MMP’s).

Principal uses of DesensiMAX:

  • Desensitizing
  • Rewetting tooth surface prior to bonding
  • Creating an ideal restorative-tooth interface
  • Preventing bond degradation caused by MMPs at the hybrid layer

Indication:

DesensiMAX has been formulated to be used with total etch and selective etch adhesive systems along with the treatment of sensitivity resulting from exposed dentin.

Instructions for use:

NOTE: SHAKE BOTTLE VIGOROUSLY FOR 3 SECONDS BEFORE DISPENSING

Total Etch:

  1. Etch the tooth surface as instructed by the adhesive manufacturer
  2. Rinse away the extra etch and dry the tooth thoroughly for at least 3 seconds
  3. NOTE: SHAKE BOTTLE VIGOROUSLY FOR 3 SECONDS BEFORE DISPENSING
  4. Using a small micro-applicator, apply a uniform coat of DesensiMAX to the entire preparation. Allow to dwell for 5 seconds, dry briefly, leaving a shiny surface. Surface should not have any pooled liquid
  5. Continue to apply the adhesive manufacturer’s materials as prescribed in their instructions

Selective Etch:

  1. Etch the enamel surface as instructed by the adhesive manufacturer
  2. Rinse away the extra etch and dry the tooth thoroughly for at least 3 seconds
  3. NOTE: SHAKE BOTTLE VIGOROUSLY FOR 3 SECONDS BEFORE DISPENSING
  4. Using a small micro-applicator, apply a uniform coat of DesensiMAX to the entire preparation. Allow to dwell for 5 seconds, dry briefly, leaving a shiny surface. Surface should not have any pooled liquid.
  5. Continue to apply the adhesive manufacturer’s materials as prescribed in their instructions.

Desensitizing Crown Preparations:

  1. Prior to cementation of the temporary, dry the tooth aggressively for at least 3 seconds
  2. NOTE: SHAKE BOTTLE VIGOROUSLY FOR 3 SECONDS BEFORE DISPENSING
  3. Apply 2 coats of DesensiMAX, allow to dwell for 5 seconds, briefly dry and place the temporary
