What is meant by “total-etch”?
The term total-etch is used for simultaneous etching of enamel and dentin with e.g. phosphoric acid to remove the smear layer and to obtain micro-porosities for the integration of the bonding agent. The etching should start with enamel and then move to dentin. BISCO recommends a 15 second etch as a general guideline. Excessive etching of dentin may cause hypersensitivity and incomplete hybrid layers.

What makes the BISCO Etchant different from others?
BISCO Etchant was made into a semi-gel form using a polymer thickening agent rather than conventional submicron silica etching gels. Conventional silica etching gels have been shown to leave submicron silica debris, following rinsing, on the etched surface.

What is meant by wet/moist bonding?
It is critical to keep the prepared dentin moist. Wet (moist) bonding is desirable because it prevents exposed collagen fibers from collapsing. For total hybridization and optimal bond strength, these exposed collagen fibers must be infiltrated and saturated by the primer/adhesive. The saturation is confirmed clinically by observing a glossy surface of primer/adhesive after thorough evaporation of the solvent. Over dried collagen leads to the formation of a dense amorphous layer that may impede infiltration of the primer/adhesive solution into the intertubular dentin and results in incomplete hybridization.

What is the best way to achieve wet/moist bonding clinically?
Air drying is not recommended. Air drying may collapse collagen fibrils while incorporating air into the dentinal tubules with possible cause of postoperative sensitivity. High volume suction removes pooled water and allows for collagen fibrils to remain sufficiently hydrated, facilitating primer infiltration. Alternatively, an absorbent pellet may be used to blot pooled water from the dentin.

What is the difference between All-Bond 3 & Ace All-Bond TE
All-Bond 3 & Ace All-Bond TE are chemically the same adhesive. All-Bond 3 is available in a bottle system and All-Bond TE is available in the convenient Ace delivery system. Ace’s fast and easy application takes the guesswork out of every procedure by accurately dispensing the correct proportion of material with the click of a button.

What advantages do the Ace All-Bond TE (All-Bond 3) offer over other total-etch adhesives?

  • One-layer adhesive, yet as durable as 2-layer adhesive systems
  • Universal compatibility with all materials (light- , dual- and self-cure) to all substrates
  • Dual-cured with one-drop dispensing (Ace All-Bond TE)
  • Minimized post-operative sensitivity¹
  • Cross-linking monomers eliminate the need for a hydrophobic bonding resin layer
  • Simple application technique for all procedures

How many applications can I get from the All-Bond 3 total-etch bottles?
You should get approximately 230 applications from a set of All-Bond 3 bottles.

How many applications can I get from the Ace All-Bond TE cartridge?
You should get approximately 50 applications from the Ace All-Bond TE cartridge.

Do I need to refrigerate the All-Bond 3 total-etch bottles?
No, the bottles may be stored at room temperature (20°C/68°F - 25°C/77°F).

Do I need to refrigerate the Ace All-Bond TE cartridges?
To achieve the maximum shelf life, Ace All-Bond TE adhesive should be refrigerated (2°C/36°F - 8°C/46°F). Refrigeration is not required if the product is depleted within sixty days. Refrigerate Ace All-Bond TE cartridge in its sealed pouch. Do not open pouch until ready to use. Allow refrigerated Ace All-Bond TE cartridge to reach room temperature before use. If refrigerating a partially used cartridge, it should be kept in the Ace dispenser.

What is the shelf life of the All-Bond 3 total-etch bottles?
2 years

What is the shelf life of the Ace All-Bond TE cartridges?
1.5 years

Do I have to shake the All-Bond 3 total-etch bottles or Ace All-Bond TEcartridges prior to use?
No

What is the processing time of All-Bond 3 total-etch bottles or Ace All-Bond TE cartridges?
Ace All-Bond TE and All-Bond 3 are truly dual-cured adhesives. Use All-Bond 3 and Ace All-Bond TE adhesives shortly after it is dispensed in the mixing well to prevent polymerization, protect from ambient light.

Is it necessary to agitate the Ace All-Bond TE (All-Bond 3) after applying?
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.

The instructions say to apply 1-2 coats, do I need 1 coat or two?
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 after application of the Ace All-Bond TE (All-Bond 3) the surface is not glossy, what should I do?
If the surface is not glossy, the tubules may not be thoroughly filled. Apply additional coats.

How many seconds does it take to cure Ace All-Bond TE (All-Bond 3) with a halogen and LED light?
10 seconds

Can Ace All-Bond TE (All-Bond 3) be light cured by LED?
Yes, the photoinitiator in Ace All-Bond TE (All-Bond 3) is camphorquinone (CQ), which is compatible with all dental curing lights.

Can a different applicator be used?
Yes. Ace All-Bond TE contains all components, including orange microbrushes. However, you may use any other applicator that is ethanol resistant.

How thick is the adhesive layer of the Ace All-Bond TE (All-Bond 3)?
The film thickness of Ace All-Bond TE (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.

May I use a separate desensitizer with Ace All-Bond TE (All-Bond 3)?
Although a 2 year clinical trial found this adhesive to have minimal postoperative sensitivity1, you may use a separate desensitizer with this adhesive.

Can I combine ACE ALL-BOND TE (ALL-BOND 3) with self- and dual-curing luting materials?
Yes, Ace All-Bond TE (All-Bond 3) may be used in combination with light- and dual-curing luting materials.

Can I apply ACE ALL-BOND TE (ALL-BOND 3) on calcium hydroxide?
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.

Is the use of rubber dam required?
Isolation from contamination is essential. If this is ensured, the use of rubber dam may not be required in certain cases, decided by the clinician. Nevertheless BISCO recommends the use of a rubber dam in any case.

What influence do the solvents have?
The technique to be used depends on the solvent. In the case of Ace All-Bond TE (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.

Why do Ace All-Bond TE (All-Bond 3) contain HEMA?
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. Ace All-Bond TE (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.

My Ace All-Bond TE plungers are not advancing?
While rare, on occasion the spring in the Ace Dispenser may break. Please contact your local representative for a replacement.

Only one part of my Ace All-Bond TE is dispensing, why?

  • If the cartridge remains unused for a prolonged period of time, slight evaporation of solvent from one side may occur; the cartridge will need to be re-primed (bleed).
  • Be certain to firmly seat the cap on the cartridge after each use.
