Adhese Universal Put to the Test

You probably already know that Adhese Universal is one dental bonding agent for all situations, but have you seen our latest test results? Adhese Universal was recently put through rigorous fatigue testing to determine how well the bond strength would hold up under adverse conditions, and we're quite proud of the results.

When dentists use our product as a bonding agent for their patients' teeth, it needs to hold up against chewing, drinking, brushing and breathing: all actions that could erode and weaken the bond over time. The fatigue testing was designed to simulate the wear and tear from years of these actions against patients' newly bonded teeth.

So what did we find out?

1. Optimum shear bond strength before and after thermocycling

Testing conducted by the Ivoclar Vivadent R&D lab in Schann, Liechtenstein concluded that Adhese Universal demonstrated reliable shear bond strength on dentin and enamel before and after thermocycling when using either the total-etch or self-etch protocol.

2. Excellent marginal quality before and after thermocycling

In a test conducted and presided over by Dr. Uwe Blunck from Berlin, Germany, Adhese Universal proved to be highly effective in class V cavities on dentin and enamel when tested with different composite materials using either the total-etch or self-etch protocol.

3. Outstanding marginal quality after thermo-mechanical loading

In tests conducted by Prof. Dr. Roland Frankenberger at the University Marburg in Germany, a high percentage of gap-free margins were initially identified under all conditions in enamel and dentin for both adhesives. After thermo-mechanical loading, no significant differences were observed between both adhesives using the Total-Etch and Self-Etch protocol. When compared to adhesives and filling composites previously tested under equal conditions, Adhese Universal performed very well on dentin and enamel using the Total-Etch and Self-Etch protocol.
