Every once in awhile in dental materials an active ingredient changes the face of the products we use. MDP (10-Methacryloyloxydecyl dihydrogen phosphate) is one of those products.

Recently I had the privilege to product test a new evolution of resin-modified glass ionomer cement for GC America - FujiCem Evolve. It was launched at the 2019 ADA meeting in San Francisco. Over the last few months I have fallen in love with this new addition to the Fuji line, and I think you will too. In this video I will talk about the material science
Like all hard appliances, acrylic mandibular advancement appliances pose multiple clinical challenges. The polymerization and set of traditional dental impression material and stone create an imperfect replica of the teeth.
