The gold standard in total-etch bonding just got better with BISCO’s ALL-BOND 3 Universal Dental Adhesive System. ALL-BOND 3 utilizes patented technology that takes total-etch bonding to a whole new level of performance, assuring dentists of a simplified bonding process, as well as stronger, longer lasting bonds than ever before.
ALL-BOND 3 micro-mechanically bonds to all substrates, is used for all bonding procedures and is compatible with light-, dual- and self-cured materials. The ALL-BOND 3 system offers increased hydrophobicity for a long-lasting adhesive bond. The HEMA-free, radiopaque ALL-BOND 3 Resin reduces the chance of misdiagnosing caries.
- Compatible with light-, self- and dual-cured materials (without the use of additional activators)
- Only 1-2 coats of Parts A & B are required, ensuring a more uniform and ideal film thickness while saving application time
- Ethanol-based formula allows less technique sensitivity to moisture resulting in more consistent and predictable results
- ALL-BOND 3 Resin is HEMA-free for more hydrophobic bonding to prevent degradation over time
- ALL-BOND 3 Resin is radiopaque allowing visibility on radiographs in areas where adhesives commonlypool, reducing the risk of misdiagnosing caries
Frequently Asked Questions
- One-layer adhesive, yet as durable as 2-layer adhesive systems
- Universal compatibility with all materials (light- , dual- and self-cure) to all substrates
- Minimized post-operative sensitivity¹
- Cross-linking monomers eliminate the need for a hydrophobic bonding resin layer
- Simple application technique for all procedures
Universal Primer is a 2-part, dual-cure system that can be used in total-etch, self-etch or selective-etch technique. It is recommended for the clinician who prefers to not light-cure under indirect restorations. All-Bond 3 is also a 2-part dual cure system but can only be used in total-etch mode. You may use All-Bond 3 Resin with either of the two adhesives for radiopacity to outline the restoration, and reduce the risk of misdiagnosing caries.
You should get approximately 230 applications from a set of All-Bond 3 bottles.
All-Bond 3 is a dual-cured adhesive. Use All-Bond 3 adhesive shortly after it is dispensed in the mixing well to prevent polymerization, protect from ambient light.
Agitating the adhesive on the tooth is beneficial, we recommend applying the adhesive onto the entire tooth preparation with a light agitating motion for 5-10 seconds.
Smaller preparations may require only 1 coat/application, larger preparations may require 2+ coats/applications (consecutive applications with no air drying or waiting). After evaporation the adhesive will have a glossy appearance.
If the surface is not glossy, the tubules may not be thoroughly filled. Apply additional coats.
Yes, the photoinitiator in All-Bond 3 is camphorquinone (CQ), which is compatible with all dental curing lights.
You may use any other applicator that is ethanol resistant.
The film thickness of All-Bond 3 is only 5-10µm. This makes the adhesive ideal for use under all indirect restorations. Additionally, light curing is optional for added confidence of a perfect restoration fit.
Although a 2 year clinical trial found this adhesive to have minimal postoperative sensitivity1, you may use a separate desensitizer with this adhesive.
Yes, All-Bond 3 may be used in combination with light- and dual-curing luting materials.
Yes, you may use this adhesive over calcium hydroxide, some of the calcium hydroxide will slightly dissolve during the etching step. We strongly recommend the use of TheraCal LC®, BISCO’s light-cured Resin-Modified Calcium Silicate Pulp Protectant/Liner
The technique to be used depends on the solvent. In the case of All-Bond 3 which is ethanol based, better bond strength performance is demonstrated when the dentin is mildly wet. Ethanol has a higher ability to re-expand collapsed collagen fibrils as compared to acetone-based adhesives. Ethanol requires more time for evaporation than acetone which can be facilitated with agitation upon placement. Incomplete evaporation causes deficient polymerization and could potentially lead to failures.
HEMA is a hydrophilic monomer that is a good wetting agent and penetrates easily into the tooth surface. One of the drawbacks with HEMA is that it firmly retains water in adhesives, from where it is hardly removed by air-drying. All-Bond 3 is water-free and ethanol based to allow for a reduction in the HEMA content and the inclusion of more hydrophobic, highly cross-linking monomers.
