The decision to institute DUO-LINK UNIVERSAL is important to continually improve cementation protocols, team confidence and the delivery of oral care. Creating a better experience for the patient is often dependent and reflective upon the type of dental materials that are used. This has become increasingly important when cementing restorations, specifically when you are striving for fast, easy and reliable, sensitive-free results.

BISCO has continually developed “cutting edge” products by your design. To accomplish this, we rely on the expertise and insight from our customers to guide us in the development of the most efficient and effective dental products in the market.
