Reliable adhesion due to high technique tolerance

The clinical success of an adhesive often depends on the technique of the clinician. Total-etch adhesives generally require a "wet bonding" technique. Here the adhesive should be applied onto etched dentin that is slightly moist to avoid desiccation. How wet or dry the dentin should be in order to achieve sufficient bond strength is often very challenging.

Reliable adhesion due to high technique tolerance

The clinical success of an adhesive often depends on the technique of the clinician. Total-etch adhesives generally require a "wet bonding" technique. Here the adhesive should be applied onto etched dentin that is slightly moist to avoid desiccation. How wet or dry the dentin should be in order to achieve sufficient bond strength is often very challenging.
