Embrace WetBond Duel Cure Resin Cement


Embrace Cement


Embrace WetBond Resin Cement

Dual Cure • Fluoride Releasing • Radiopaque

Embrace Resin Cement is the first self-adhesive resin cement that bonds to the slightly moist tooth. Embrace is a moisture-friendly, ionic resin, and is fully compatible with the moist oral environment.

Embrace forms chemical bonds to dentin and enamel, precious and non-precious metals, ceramics, composites, and fiber posts.

Embrace Resin Cement is non-irritating, self-adhesive, contains no solvents, requires no etching or drying of dentin, and provides an exceptional seal against microleakage. These features eliminate the major causes of sensitivity.

Self-Adhesive – Moisture Tolerant

Film thickness:                            12 microns

Setting Characteristics

Embrace WetBond Resin Cement is both self-cure and light cure.

The Embrace WetBond self-cure polymerization reaction occurs by anaerobic polymerization. This means that the reaction does not begin while the material is exposed to air. It begins when the restoration is seated and air is eliminated. This feature provides very long working time and explains why material left on the mixing pad may not polymerize.

Light curing of dental resins provides a more complete cure than self-curing and is recommended whenever possible. Light cured resins are harder, stronger and have better surface qualities than self-cured resins.

Clean Up

After seating the restoration, maintain positive pressure for 2 minutes. During this time remove excess with a brush, or tack cure margins for 1-2 seconds and gently tease away excess with a suitable instrument. Also clear contacts and interproximal areas with floss.

Slightly Moist Tooth Surfaces Defined

Slightly moist tooth surfaces exhibit neither dryness nor pooling of water. Lightly dry and remove surface water with compressed air or a cotton pellet. Tooth surfaces should be shiny or glossy. Overly wet surfaces will result in decreased bond strength.
