BISCO DENTAL PRODUCTS
All-Bond Universal Evaluation
With its versatility, reliable bonding, reduced post-op sensitivity, and ease of use, ALL-BOND UNIVERSAL has proved itself over time.
All bonding agents are not created equal—each has a unique chemistry and incorporates a variety of application techniques. And the importance of a bonding agent in restorative dentistry cannot be overstated. Dental bonding is a critical step for the success of both direct and indirect restorations, not only because it provides adhesion, but also because it seals and maintains structural integrity.
Available in a 6 mL bottle or 0.2 mL unit doses, ALLBOND UNIVERSAL can be used with direct and indirect restorations and is compatible with light-, dual-, and self-cured materials. It bonds to all indirect substrates; is suitable for composite and resin-based cements; and can be used on wet, dry, or moist tooth structure.
Reduced Post-Op Sensitivity
Years ago, when Dr. Jaskiel first tried ALL-BOND UNIVERSAL, he had been using a similar singlebottle adhesive from a different manufacturer. One of the first things he noticed about BISCO’s product was how easily it filled and successfully sealed the tubules, which was a great improvement from his previous product. He experienced a noticeable decrease in patients with postoperative sensitivity after switching to ALL-BOND UNIVERSAL. “The no-etch adhesives I used before regularly caused post-op sensitivity,” Dr. Jaskiel noted. “As soon as I started using ALL-BOND UNIVERSAL, the incidence of sensitivity decreased dramatically.” Dr. Pasenkoff agreed that post-op sensitivity decreased a great amount once he began using the product.
Unit Dose and Bond Strength
The unit doses of 0.20 ml were made available after the time of the original evaluation. “I have tried the unit dose and I love it,” Dr. Pasenkoff said. Dr. Jason Wasserman, who prefers the unit dose over the bottle, likes the way ALLBOND UNIVERSAL handles and says the packaging is better than other single-use universal bonding agents. With the unit dose, he feels confident that the chemistry remains unchanged, he added.
Having trusted ALL-BOND UNIVERSAL in his practice for years, Dr. Jaskiel said it is his “go-to product when it comes to bonding.” Dr. John Horn called it “a breeze to light cure” and said the material is “as simple as it gets,” adding, “I really enjoy using the BISCO line of products—a quality company.”
"[The bonds] seem to be holding up well, and I've had very few issues with patient sensitivity."
