Adper™ Easy Bond Self-Etch Adhesive

Adper™ Easy Bond Self-Etch Adhesive


The first one-bottle, one-coat self-etch adhesive from 3M ESPE designed for strength, simplicity and convenience.

  Indications   Science   Technique  

One bottle. One coat. Fast results.


With Adper™ Easy Bond Self-Etch Adhesive, you are just one step away from creating a strong, reliable bond to dentin and enamel. No mixing or bottle shaking necessary. Whether you use a convenient disposable unit-dose applicator or take the one-bottle approach, bonding for direct light-curing restorations has never been simpler or faster.

35-second placement time reduces risk of contamination

20 Seconds. Apply adhesive to tooth surface
5 Seconds. Dry the adhesive
10 Seconds. Light cure

Virtually NO post-op sensitivity. Guaranteed.


Eliminating post-operative sensitivity is high on every dentist's list. With Adper™ Easy Bond Self-Etch Adhesive the etching and penetration of resin monomers into the demineralized dentin and enamel are carried out simultaneously in one step, thus preserving the collagen structure. This means you are not dependent on maintaining a moist bonding environment, which is a requirement of 5th generation, one-bottle adhesives.

Less than 0.5% post-operative sensitivity.
In a field evaluation of more than 5,000 restorations placed using Adper Easy Bond adhesive, less than 0.5% reported post-operative sensitivity1.* Positive outcomes like this are reason enough to try Adper Easy Bond adhesive on your next restoration.

Selective Enamel Etching and Self-Etch Adhesives.


Some dentists opt to "selectively" etch prepared enamel when using self-etch adhesives. Also, a separate enamel etch is typically recommended for 7th generation materials when uncut enamel is involved. Adper™ Easy Bond adhesive is uniquely suited to the selective etch technique.

With some self-etch adhesives, using a separate etchant on dentin can actually decrease the bond strength to dentin and affect margin quality.¹, ² However, with Adper Easy Bond adhesive, if the dentin is inadvertently etched during the selective enamel etching process, the dentin bond strength is not adversely affected, even if it is dried.


Whether you are using the ultra-simple Adper Easy Bond adhesive one-bottle, one-coat process, or selectively etching in addition to applying Adper Easy Bond adhesive, you can achieve high bond strengths and reduced post-operative sensitivity with Adper Easy Bond adhesive.

Adper™ Easy Bond Self-Etch Adhesive

Adper™ Single Bond Universal is simply ideal for a wide range of procedures.

Light-curing Adper™ Single Bond Universal is for these indications:

  • Product name to be changed to single bond universal.
  • Replace indication with below text.
  • Bonding light cured composite - total etch on cut enamel.
  • Bonding light cured composite - total etch on uncut enamel.
  • Bonding light cured composite - self etch.
  • Bonding light cured composite - selective etch.
  • Root surface desensitization.
  • Sealing of dentin prior to amalgam restorations.
  • Protective varnish for gi restorations.
  • Repair of composite restorations.
  • Bonding pit and fissure sealants in both total etch and self etch mode.
  • Bonding veneers with a conventional resin cement.
  • Bonding high strength substrates like zirconia, alumina and metal.
  • .
  • Bonding weak ceramics like glass ceramics.
  • Intraoral repair of indirect restorations.
  • Bonding self- or dual- cure material and resin cement with dual cure.
  • Activator (example: single bond universal dual cure activator).
  • Sealing dentinal tubules prior to temporization in self etch mode

The easy solution for high marginal integrity and low nanoleakage.

Studies from two universities are shown to demonstrate the high marginal integrity and low nanoleakage of Single Bond Universal Adhesive.

Pictured first is a study performed on Class V restorations by Professor Dr. B. Haller, University of Ulm, measuring marginal integrity. The two charts on the right compare the percentage of continuous margins - before and after thermocycling - for Adper Easy Bond adhesive and other adhesive systems. The percentage after thermocycling is very high for Adper Easy Bond adhesive - 99.9% on enamel and 97.7% on dentin - indicating good marginal integrity.

Next, is a study by Professor Dr. Jorge Perdigao, University of Minnesota, comparing the human teeth nanoleakage of other self-etch adhesives. When bonding to dentin with Single Bond Universal, the etch and adhesive penetration occur simultaneously, and at the same depth, forming a hybrid layer. Nanoleakage, resulting from an insufficient penetration depth of the adhesive, is significantly impacted by this mechanism.
