              Clinical Evaluations

              Company Logo
              RelyX Unicem Self-Adhesive Resin Cement
              10-Year Clinical Performance

              Description

              3M RelyX Unicem Self-Adhesive Resin Cement is a dual-cured resin cement. It is self-adhesive, requiring no separate etching, priming or bonding. The cement is filled 72% by weight and contains fluoride. It is indicated for the cementation of all-ceramic restorations, PFM and metal restorations, crowns, bridges, inlays, onlays, implant abutments and endodontic posts, and is also recommended for cementing CAD/CAM restorations.

              Clinical Evaluation protocol

              More than 6,000 restorations have been cemented with RelyX Unicem over the past 10 years. The restorations included ceramic inlays, onlays, bridges, PFM crowns, zirconia crowns, posts, and CAD/CAM restorations. 1,311 anterior and posterior restorations were available for 10-year recall over a 6-month period.

              Categories evaluated at recall included post-operative sensitivity, marginal discoloration, and retention. The majority of the posterior restorations were crowns, whereas 10% were onlays, and 2% were bridges.

              Clinical Observations

              Post-operative Sensitivity: Since its introduction, RelyX Unicem has had very few reported instances of post-operative sensitivity. Post-operative sensitivity was reported for 1.1% of the seated restorations, and usually occurred shortly after cementation. In most cases, the sensitivity subsided within weeks after cementing the restoration.

              Marginal Discoloration: 92% of the restorations recalled showed no marginal discoloration. Discoloration, exhibited by graying at the margin of ceramic restorations, was observed in 8% of the restorations: 4.8% of the restorations exhibited slight discoloration, 2.2% exhibited moderate discoloration, while 1% exhibited severe discoloration and required replacement. The rate of marginal discoloration of restorations cemented with RelyX Unicem is comparable to restorations cemented with 5th- and 6th-generation bonding agents and corresponding light- or dual-cured resin cements.

              Debonding: 49 (3.7%) of the recalled restorations debonded over the 10-year evaluation period. In 90% of the debonds, most of the cement was in the restoration and not on the prepared tooth. It was also noted that about 20% of the prepared teeth exhibited graying or blackening of the tooth surface. This type of discoloration is commonly seen underneath restorations cemented with adhesive resin cements. The discoloration could be due to bacteria.

              Summary

              RelyX Unicem has proven to be a reliable, self-adhesive resin cement over the 10-year recall period. This product received a 98% clinical rating.

              Consultants’ Comments

              • “In 10 years of using RelyX Unicem, it really has proven itself.”
