Can you use TheraCem with All Bond Universal for added bond strength?
You can, but you lose the benefit of TheraCem’s calcium and fluoride release.
- If you need additional bond strength and are taking the time to place a bonding agent, our recommendation is to use BISCO’s All-Bond Universal with Duo-Link Universal.

I know TheraCem has MDP, but what happens if you use Z-PRIME Plus & TheraCem?
Applying Z-PRIME Plus to the substrate is not required when cementing with TheraCem. There are neither benefits nor consequences to using them together. Save time, and money and take advantage of TheraCem’s benefits!

With what type of substrates TheraCem can be used?
TheraCem is compatible with all substrates including zirconia, lithium disilicate (e.max) and feldspathic porcelain.

What is the difference between TheraCem and BisCem?

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

  • Fluoride and calcium release
  • Higher bonds strengths; especially to Zirconia – Contains MDP
  • 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

Do I need to use silane on my glass ceramics restorations?
Yes, in order to achieve reliable cementation results, all glass ceramic substrates should be pre-treated with a silane primer such as BISCO’s Porcelain Primer.
