EMBRACE WETBOND PIT & FISSURE SEALANT
Fluoride Releasing • Light Cure • Wet Bonding • Radiopaque
- Bonds to the moist tooth
- Tooth integrating
- Exceptional marginal seal
- Eliminates microleakage
Nothing is Faster or Easier
- Clean, isolate, etch tooth for 15 seconds.
- Rinse well.
- Remove excess water.
- LEAVE TOOTH SURFACE SLIGHTLY MOIST.
- Apply Embrace sealant on the slightly moist occlusal surface.
- Light cure
With EMBRACE Pit & Fissure Sealant the moisture in the mouth is beneficial and bonding agents are not indicated.
Embrace is the first pit and fissure sealant that bonds to the moist tooth.
Research shows remarkable sealing ability and adaptation to tooth structure.
The margins are undetectable, and the long-term success has been reported in the literature.
Embrace releases and recharges phosphate and fluoride, and it has longer lasting antibacterial activity compared to other leading brands, especially against S. mutans.
- Wet-bonding resin technology
- Tooth integrating. Seals against microleakage
- Margin-free. No chipping. No staining
- Fewer steps. Saves time and money
- No drying or bonding agents required
- Available in off-white or natural shade
Exceptional Marginal Adaptation
Embrace resins form an intimate association with the moist tooth. They are tooth integrating, creating a margin-free interface between the resin and the tooth that eliminates microleakage.
- Compressive Strength: 34,800 p.s.i., 240.0 MPa
- Diametral Tensile Strength: 6300 p.s.i., 43.4 MPa
- Percent Solubility: 06% Film Thickness: 12 microns
Do I etch before placing Embrace Sealant?
A. Always etch enamel. Products claiming they did not require enamel etching have been taken off the market. They did not work.
How wet do I leave the tooth before placing Embrace?
A. Place Embrace on slightly moist tooth surfaces. Lightly dry the tooth with compressed air or a cotton pellet, but do not desiccate the tooth. The tooth should appear shiny or glossy. There should be no drops or pooling of water.
What should I do if I dry the tooth too much?
A. You can apply a moist cotton pellet to the tooth.
What happens if I place Embrace on a dry tooth?
A. Embrace is activated by moisture. It will seal a dry tooth, but it works even better in the presence of moisture.
Should I use a bonding agent with Embrace?
A. It is not necessary to use a bonding agent. Clinical trials show unsurpassed retention without the use of bonding agents.
MOISTURE TOLERANT DENTAL RESINS
FOR THE MOIST ORAL ENVIRONMENT
EMBRACE is Moisture Tolerant
PULPDENT has developed resins, which are hydrophilic, moisture tolerant and form a positive association with water taking advantage of the moisture the mouth.
EMBRACE + Water Demonstration
Embrace is water friendly. It even mixes with water.
In fact, moisture activates the Embrace resin chemistry, enabling it to better integrate with tooth structure.
EMBRACE: An Acidic Monomer
When activated by moisture, Embrace is acidic.
In the cured state, the material is no longer affected by water, and has a neutral pH and extremely low water solubility of 0.06%
Defining Slightly Moist Tooth Surfaces
Slightly moist tooth surfaces exhibit neither dryness nor pooling of water.
Lightly dry and remove excess water with compressed air or a cotton pellet
Tooth surfaces should be shiny or glossy
EMBRACE: Tooth Integrating, Margin-Free
Embrace resins form an intimate association with the moist tooth.
They are tooth integrating, creating a margin-free interface between the resin and tooth that is entirely unique, eliminating microleakage.
EMBRACE Seals against Microleakage
Microleakage and the inability to create a permanent seal at the margins results in decay and failure of restorations.
Embrace performed exceptionally in marginal leakage testing, without using adhesives or bonding agents
EMBRACE: No Sensitivity Reported
Teeth contain water, and desiccating dentin disrupts their natural chemistry and is a cause of sensitivity.
Microleakage, movement of fluids in the dentinal tubules, acids and chemical irritants also cause sensitivity.
Embrace resins eliminate these causal factors
They are biocompatible, nonirritating, contain no solvents, require no etching or drying of dentin, and provide exceptional seal against microleakage,
