Self-Etch Adhesive Bonds Uncut Enamel Without Separate Etch Step • Clinically proven • Reduces the risk of post-operative sensitivity • Desensitizes hypersensitive root surfaces • Simplifies sealant technique • Available in disposable Unit Dose delivery Indications • Direct restorations • Sealants Bond Strength to Uncut Enamel; Various Test Methods 3M ESPE adhesives are based on 25+ years of clinicallyproven technology. With more than 100 million unit dose sold, Adper™ Prompt™ Self-Etch Adhesive rates as one of the best-selling self-etch adhesives in the world. And for good reason. The lower pH of Adper Prompt adhesive provides deeper etch patterns on cut and uncut enamel than competitive adhesives (independent test data on file). The result is proven bond strength without the need for a separate etch step. A deeper etch pattern strengthens bonding performance to enamel. This important feature enhances Adper Prompt adhesive’s versatility as a fast, convenient one-step adhesive that offers outstanding bond strength with very low incidence of post-operative sensitivity. Single Bond Adper Prompt Source: Data available upon request. Note that Adper Prompt adhesive provides sufficient etch even for bonding UNCUT ENAMEL – while other adhesives require a separate etch step, per their instructions for use, to properly prepare intact enamel surfaces for bonding.

The lower pH of Adper™ Prompt™ Self-Etch Adhesive provides a more pronounced etch than other self-etch adhesives, allowing for use on UNCUT enamel without a separate acid-etch step.

Why Adper™ Prompt™ Self-Etch Adhesive can bond even UNCUT enamel One of the challenges inherent in a self-etch adhesive is that the low pH required for etching ability is contrary to the chemical stability of aqueous self-etching methacrylate solutions. Most self-etch adhesives are not indicated for use on uncut enamel – or require a separate acid etch step in order to bond uncut enamel. Our Unit-Dose delivery option is convenient and easy to use. 3M ESPE designed Adper Prompt adhesive to avoid that constraint. Adper Prompt adhesive can be more acidic than other products, allowing it to be indicated...
