Adhese Universal awarded 5 stars in clinical evaluation
Excellent rating for lack of postoperative sensitivity, retention and resistance to marginal discolouration
The renowned US trade publication “The Dental Advisor” has given the Adhese Universal bonding system from Ivoclar Vivadent an “excellent” clinical performance rating of 99% at one year.
Adhese Universal was used to place 83 direct and indirect restorations. The adhesive was used for restorations placed in all the restoration classes. Seventy-three of the restorations placed were available for a one-year recall evaluation. Results: Ninety-nine percent of the restorations were retained after one year in service. Ninety-five percent of the restorations showed no signs of marginal discolouration. Additionally, no postoperative sensitivity was reported by the patients. Adhese Universal was therefore honoured with an "Excellence - 5 stars" rating by the Dental Advisor. This is the highest rating which the magazine awards.
Versatile and convenient
The consultants testing the product particularly praised the versatility of the adhesive, which can be used for self-etch and total-etch techniques. The convenient VivaPen dispensing system also scored high remarks among the consultants.
