Question Asked on 4/30/2014

When should I use the total-etch and self-etch techniques?

Answer Response by Dr. Suh on 4/28/2014

In general, research has shown that the total-etch (etch-and-rinse) technique is ideal for enamel bonding, while the self-etch technique is better for dentin bonding. Therefore, we recommend the Selective-Etch technique for bonding procedures.
