Ivoclar Vivadent: Universal and cost efficient


bite_whiteIvoclar Vivadent has launched Adhese Universal, a new single-component, light-cured universal adhesive for direct and indirect bonding procedures. Adhese Universal features compatibility with all etching techniques: self-etch, selective enamel-etch and total-etch. The VivaPen delivery form ensures fast and convenient application of the adhesive directly in the patient’s mouth.

The universally applicable Adhese Universal establishes a strong bond to various types of dental restoratives, so it can be used for direct and indirect bonding procedures. The material’s low film thickness minimises the risk of fitting inaccuracies after cementation. Compatibility with all etching techniques Adhese Universal combines hydrophilic and hydrophobic properties. It is tolerant to moisture and penetrates well into the dentinal tubules. Since it is moderately acidic, it is compatible with any etching technique and ensures an optimum bond between the tooth structure and the dental restorative. Efficient delivery The simple “Click” activation of the VivaPen delivery form allows the exact amount of material to be dispensed for each procedure.

Dispensing of adhesive material into a dish before the application is not required. Thus residual material waste is considerably reduced. The VivaPen contains 2 ml of adhesive, which is sufficient for approx. 190 single-tooth applications. Compared to conventional bottle delivery forms, this amounts to almost 3 times more applications per millilitre. Adhese Universal is available both in the VivaPen and the conventional bottle delivery form. Predictable results Adhese Universal forms a stable, homogenous layer that is not sensitive to any application technique. Consistently high bond strengths on venamel and dentin are achieved irrespective of the etching protocol employed. The acetone-free, hydrophilic solvent contained in Adhese Universal ensures optimum wetting of the dentin and enamel. This results in enhanced infiltration and optimum sealing of the dentinal tubules to prevent microleakage and the associated postoperative sensitivity. Adhese® is a registered trademark of Ivoclar Vivadent AG.
