Question Asked on 8/11/2015

Do you believe that self-etch on dentin is as good and durable as total-etch on dentin?

Answer Response by Dr. Suh on 8/11/2015

Yes, depending on the adhesive formulation, self-etch on dentin can be as good and durable or even better than total-etching dentin. Several of the new universal adhesives utilize MDP as its acidic functional monomer, which forms a strong and durable chemical bond with the tooth.
