By the Numbers

58% of the respondents to an Inside Dentistrysurvey reported that they prefer total-etch bonding systems to self-etch ones.

Feldspathic ceramics, which consist of a blend of leucite (potassium aluminosilicate) and glass, demonstrate low to medium flexural strength of up to 120 MPa.1

In vitro research has shown that the use of adhesives accompanied by a separate primer containing both silane and 10-MDP results in stronger bond strengths than the use of universal adhesives alone after 1 year of water storage.2
