Evaluation of a universal adhesive (Iperbond Ultra)

Iperbond Ultra is a self‐etching adhesive system (Self‐Etch Mode) requiring no preliminary etching and rinsing stage: practitioners greatly appreciate these systems’ simplicity and rapidity in use compared with traditional systems that demand a preliminary etching or “E&R” (Etching and Rinsing) stage.

Nevertheless an application of phosphoric acid, even if not strictly necessary, could strengthen the adhesion of this Self‐Etch Mode to dental tissues. The aim of this first part was to use a scanning electron microscope (SEM), at various magnifications, to observe the resin‐composite/enamel and resin‐composite/dentine interfaces of composite blocks cemented using Iperbond Ultra, both with and without preliminary etching
