Question Asked by Abdulrahman Mohammed on 2/2/2017

What is the difference between TheraCem and BisCem?

Answer Response by on 2/2/2017

Both TheraCem and BisCem are self-etching, self-adhesive cements.
However, TheraCem includes the following features as compared to BisCem:

  • Fluoride and calcium release
  • Higher bonds strengths; especially to Zirconia
  • 18-month shelf life at room temperature (BisCem requires refrigeration)
  • Higher radiopacity and can be easily identified on a radiograph
  • Easy clean-up and removal of excess cement
  • Alkaline pH after bonding
