REALITY’s Top Choices

THE SET-UP

REALITY has chosen to designate two separate categories to highlight: Total-Etch and Self-Etch.

THE RESULTS | Total-Etch

OptiBond FL, Kerr Corp.
With a clinical heritage second to none, it is the safe choice for all but metal-based indirects.

All-Bond 3, Bisco
Improved version of the most universal and complete system available today, but bonding resin needs tweaking along with the directions.

Gluma Comfort Bond + Desensitizer, Heraeus Kulzer
If you are still plagued with patients complaining of sensitivity and still prefer to use a total-etch adhesive, this product could solve your problems.

THE RESULTS | Self-Etch

Clearfil SE BOND, Kuraray America
For conventional light-cured restorations, it’s the one to choose if you want to use a self-etcher.

Peak SE, Ultradent
The convenience of syringe delivery along with impressive performance without technique sensitivity.

Bond Force, Tokuyama
Could be the best of the one-component self-etchers, although its performance needs longevity to match the more established, multi-component products.

THE DENTAL ADVISOR’s Top Choices

THE SET-UP
THE DENTAL ADVISOR has clinically evaluated and laboratory tested 7th-generation bonding agents. These adhesives involve a single step, eliminating the need for separate etching, rinsing and mixing.

THE CRITERIA
We have identified the following ideal characteristics of 7th-generation bonding agents:

  • High bond strength (20-30 MPa)

  • Thin film thickness

  • Tolerant to moisture

  • No post-operative sensitivity

  • Light- and dual-cured

  • Good shelf life

THE RESULTS
These bonding agents were highly rated by our clinical consultants and had high in vitro bond strengths:

Bond Force, Tokuyama

Clearfil S3 BOND, Kuraray America 

OptiBond All-In-One, Kerr Corp.
