Bisco Dental Products has released Universal Primer, a low film thickness, dual-cure primer/adhesive designed for dentists who prefer not to light cure the adhesive layer under indirect restorations.
Universal Primer is indicated for direct restorations, indirect restorations, bonding resin, or primer for substrates, desensitization or sealing of tooth, and intraoral repair.
Universal Primer offers the flexibility to be used in self-, selective-, or total-etch mode, depending on the clinical situation and dentist's preference. The product is compatible with light-, self-, and dual-cured resin composites and cements for direct and indirect procedures. It also combines ease of use with virtually no postoperative sensitivity, according to the company.
It is available in 6 mL bottles (part A & B) and in the convenient, all-in-one ACE cartridge (2 mL) system.
