Flexible range of applications
LuxaBond Total Etch is a dual-curing adhesive system that provides users with more reliable total bond strength through specifically shaped Endobrushes for an easier application in the root canal. In addition to the endodontic application, the adhesive system is also suitable for bonding of posts, cores, crowns, bridges, inlays and onlays.
Bond with confidence; the pre-bond activator reacts with the adhesives in the tooth, leading to deeper penetration with flexible working time and a stronger bond. Self-curing does more than just allow it to be used in areas that light does not reach.
LuxaBond Total Etch is recommended for use with LuxaCore Z-Dual for core build-up or for adhesive cementation of crowns and bridges with Vitique or PermaCem. In these cases, there is the option of curing it with light.
The pre-bonding that facilitates the superior adhesion properties of the system is applied after separate etching of the enamel and dentin. It ensures that the bonding mixture (consisting of components A and B) hardens very quickly after application to the tooth material. It means that a ready-made anchor layer is present even before the introduction of the restoration material.
In addition, the pre-bonding allows a longer processing time for the bonding mixture, as its curing is only accelerated when it comes in contact with the pre-bond. For easy handling, the order of application is specified on the bottles, with color codes to indicate the bond components.
