Question Asked on 10/31/2016

What is the difference between "Universal Primer" and All-Bond 3? Are both dual cure? Is it recommended to use All-Bond Resin with either of the two?

Answer Response by Dr. Suh on 10/31/2016

Universal Primer is a 2 part dual cure system that can be used in total-etch, self-etch or selective-etch technique. It is recommended for the clinician who prefers to not light-cure under indirect restorations. All-Bond 3 is also a 2 part dual cure system but only can be used in total-etch mode. You may use All-Bond 3 Resin with either of the two adhesives for radiopacity to outline the restoration and reduce the risk of misdiagnosing caries.
