Adper™ Scotchbond™ Multi-Purpose Plus Adhesive

The Standard for Strength‚ Reliability and Versatility

 


 

Overview Features
and Benefits
Indications Clinical Studies

Proven strength and reliability.
Adper Scotchbond Multi-Purpose Plus Adhesive is one bonding system that does it all – making your job easier. It’s a fast, easy timesaver and is backed by a proven, long-term clinical history of strength and reliability. This strong, versatile system is considered to be the "gold standard" in dental adhesives by which other materials are compared. Adper Scotchbond Multi-Purpose Plus Adhesive creates strong, reliable bonds and reduces postoperative sensitivity – without using an additional desensitizing agent.

What the experts say:
Medline: Over 500 references cited

"Adper Scotchbond Multi-Purpose adhesive is extremely easy to use and provides the confidence of a long in vivo track record illustrating durable adhesion to all types of tooth surfaces. Additionally, the water-based primer reduces dependence on controlling the exact amount of surface moisture. This results in less technique sensitivity than acetone-based products."
- E. Steven Duke, DDS, MSD, Professor and Chairman, Department of Restorative Dentistry, Indiana University School of Dentistry

"You are the Gold Standard when you are the Control Group in everyone else’s studies."
- Dr. Ros Randall, 3M ESPE

Summary of Advantages

  • Complete dental bonding system with dual-cure capabilities*
  • Strong, reliable bonds for any application
  • Bonds to wet or dry tooth surfaces
  • Reduces post-operative sensitivity
  • Streamlined technique for fast, easy use

*When used with Adper™ Scotchbond™ Multi-Purpose Plus Activator and Adper™ Scotchbond™ Multi-Purpose Plus Catalyst.

Versatility for your practice.
Adper Scotchbond Multi-Purpose Plus Adhesive offers you complete dental bonding with dual-cure capabilities and a streamlined technique for fast and easy use on a variety of surfaces, like dentin, enamel, composite, fresh amalgam, metals and porcelain.

Use it with confidence for bonding to wet or dry tooth surfaces in a variety of applications including indirect restorations, deep Class II restorations and difficult Class V restorations with sclerotic dentin.

  • Direct restorations
  • Indirect restorations

Long-term clinical study shows less technique sensitivity. A long-term clinical study reported that restorations using Adper™ Scotchbond™ Multi-Purpose Adhesive were over 90% Alpha at 7.5 years in retention, marginal integrity and marginal discoloration, (1, 2) – proving its long-term clinical history of strength and reliability.

A separate in vitro study compared the bond strength of Adper Scotchbond Multi-Purpose adhesive using a moist technique to a technique that involves air drying for 5 seconds. The adhesive produced equivalent high bond strengths with both techniques – proving its versatility in a variety of conditions with less technique sensitivity. This promotes a more consistent hybrid layer, resulting in reduced post-operative sensitivity.

Dentin Shear Bond Strength

Low technique sensitivity. In an in vitro test, Adper™ Scotchbond™ Multi-Purpose Adhesive showed high bond strengths using both a moist and an air dry technique.

² When this clinical study was initiated, 10% maleic acid was packaged with the Scotchbond Multi-Purpose dental adhesive system and used as its etchant. The current system’s etchant, a 35% phosphoric acid, should provide similar results. In addition, a slight modification was made in the adhesive component to allow it to dual-cure as part of the Scotchbond™ Multi-Purpose Plus Dental Adhesive System introduced in 1994. The primer component of the system remains unchanged.
