GLUMA Desensitizer PowerGel - gaining victory over pain

Your patients trust you to relieve them from their hypersensitivity, so simply let them benefit from all the advantages of the GLUMA Desensitizer.

GLUMA Desensitizer PowerGel not only delivers the same level of desensitization as GLUMA Desensitizer but also offers better handling, easier control, and greater accuracy.

Thanks to its non-drip consistency, it is particularly easy to apply. Its green colour makes it easy to see and easy to remove.

Profit from our solution for hypersensitivity

  • Especially accurate: Thanks to its unique gel consistency, GLUMA Desensitizer PowerGel is placed in one step - extremely well controlled and accurate. Its consistency allows it to stay where it is placed, thus minimising possible contact with the soft tissues.
  • Especially analgesic: It delivers the same analgesic effects as GLUMA Desensitizer when it comes to hypersensitive teeth. GLUMA Desensitizer PowerGels is also very well suited to use after tooth preparation in order to reduce or relieve hypersensitivity of the dentine before using the denture or definitive restoration.
  • Particularly easy to recognise: The green colour also supports the user in quickly and accurately applying or removing the desensitise.
