Adhese Universal is a single-component, light-cured adhesive for direct and indirect bonding procedures and all etching protocols. It is the only universal bonding agent available in the efficient VivaPen delivery form.
Convince yourself of the benefits of the user-friendly VivaPen. Its pen-like design and bendable tip allow you to apply the adhesive quickly and effectively directly in the patient's mouth. It does not have to be predispensed into a mixing well.
Suited to Variolink Esthetic[5-7]
The first working steps decisively influence the esthetic appearance and quality of the final restoration. Here is a detailed overview of the numerous advantages of Adhese Universal:
Adhese Universal achieves high bond strength values (> 25 MPa) on enamel and dentin irrespective of the etching protocol used or the moisture conditions on the tooth surface. Predictable, high bond strength values allow you to work with confidence.
Adhese Universal features an integrated desensitizing effect, which eliminates the need for a separate desensitizing agent. Adhese Universal forms a mechanical barrier and seals the dentin tubules under wet and dry conditions.
Hypersensitivity can be one of the most challenging concerns for dentists in clinical practice. The integrated desensitizing effect of Adhese Universal minimizes the risk of postoperative sensitivity without the application of a separate desensitizing agent. Adhese Universal provides uniform mechanical blockage and sealing of the dentin tubules under wet and dry conditions. As a result, a homogeneous adhesive layer with defined resin tags is formed, which effectively seals the dentin. The movement of dentinal fluid within the tubules as well as postoperative sensitivity associated with that movement are minimized.
Since Adhese Universal can be applied very thinly, you have all the freedom you need to create esthetic direct and indirect restorations. The adhesive establishes a sound foundation for achieving customized solutions and aesthetic results.
Adhese Universal provides threefold efficiency. It is suitable for universal use, reduces the amount of material wasted and requires only short light exposures.
Simple “Click” activation dispenses the exact amount of material needed for each procedure. The adhesive in one VivaPen is sufficient for 187 single-tooth applications. Dispensing of adhesive material into a mixing well is no longer required, which results in a significant reduction in material waste.
Up to 4x more applications
With Adhese Universal in the VivaPen, up to four times more applications per ml are possible compared with conventional bottles.
Adhese Universal is cured with conventional curing lights (with a light intensity of 2,000 mW/cm2) in just 5 seconds. For restorations of Class I and II cavities in permanent posterior teeth with occlusal ligh curing using the Bluephase PowerCure with a light intensity of 3000 mW/cm2 the curing process is reduced to only 3 seconds.
3-second cure with the Bluephase PowerCure in the 3s curing mode.

 Except in cases, where sufficient exposure to curing light cannot be ensured (e.g. adhesive cementation of endodontic posts.)
