Bonding Agents, Adhesives & Etchants
Bonding Single Component CATEGORY DESCRIPTION
Single component adhesives are a recognizable part of any operatory that’s treating patients with dental caries. The components are premixed to their final proportion making it easy to use and quick to apply to patients’ oral cavities. However, this process also requires something to initiate the bond, which in dental work, is done through the process of curing.
Curing works in conjunction with bonding single components. By themselves, these adhesives are liquids and chemically blocked and need to be hardened in order to bond. In order to activate the bonding agent, high temperature, change in environment, or media like light or humidity initiates the curing mechanism.
For dental work, heat curing is a popular way to bond component adhesives. Heat curing devices are small enough to fit in your hand and powerful enough that it takes barely any time at all. This is the most familiar and fast way to bonding the single component adhesives, prioritizing expediency and the needs of the patient. Since the invention of the curing light, modern dental technology has advanced from larger halogen curing lights to portable LED innovations that made the process only a couple seconds long.
Another advantage to heat curing is its long-lasting positive effects on the oral cavity. When treating an oral cavity with heat, the activated hardened bond between the adhesive and tooth is heat resistant and chemical resistant, which generally makes the tooth more resilient to be affected by environmental damage.
Most modern dental products are advanced enough to have a simple and easy process for restoring surfaces and substrates with direct and indirect application. Using heat curing technology, this makes treatment that involves adhesives to be a smooth process comfortable for clinicians and patients alike. When it comes to dental work, having a bonding single component adhesive is a necessary part of any operatory.
