G5â„¢ is an all-purpose desensitizer and re-wetting agent that effectively eliminates post-operative sensitivity, with clinically predictable results. G5 eliminates post-operative sensitivity in posterior composite restorations, eradicates sensitivity under temporary crowns and bridges, and desensitizes roots.

G5 All-Purpose Desensitizer is the predictable solution for effective desensitization of Class I and II direct posterior restorations when utilizing 4th and 5th generation adhesives. G5 is also an excellent desensitizer for use under dental amalgams.

  • Aqueous, 5% glutaraldehyde-based desensitizer with 35% HEMA
  • Eliminates post-operative sensitivity in posterior composite restorations
  • Glutaraldehyde with HEMA shows profound in-vivo antibacterial effect that seems to prevent bacterial growth in tooth/restoration interfaces and can produce gap-free margins
  • Eradicates sensitivity under temporary crowns and bridges
  • Desensitizes roots
  • Helps to inhibit the negative affects of MMPs
  • Does not adversely affect the bond strengths of resin cement to dentin
  • Not recommended for use with self-etching cement adhesives
  • Eye protection and rubber dam isolation are ESSENTIAL for use with this product

    Indications for Use

    Use G5 for direct bonded restorations with 4th or 5th generation adhesive systems that employ wet bonding with the traditional all-etch approach.

    For desensitization of crowns, scrub G5 into the preparation for 30 seconds to penetrate the smear layer, dry the preparation (or keep tooth wet with G5, depending on the requirements of the cement being used) and cement normally.

    Please note:
    • Not recommended for use with self-etching cement adhesives
    • Eye protection and rubber dam isolation is ESSENTIAL for use with this product
