Sustainability is more than a buzzword
Because your routine workload is already heavy enough, Ivoclar offers you solutions that are designed to help streamline your workflows and save time, materials and money.
In this context, sustainability is more than a buzzword. It is a guiding principle for running your practice as an economically viable business. The Adhese Universal VivaPen is a case in point.
What can Adhese Universal do?
Adhese Universal is a light-cured single-component adhesive for bonding direct and indirect restorations. It can be used in combination with light, self and dual-cure composite materials. It is also compatible with all etching protocols.* One adhesive for complete flexibility.
What can the VivaPen do?
The VivaPen is a delivery system designed to enhance efficiency: in line with the saying that time is money. The user-friendly VivaPen allows you to apply the adhesive directly in the patient’s mouth: click and apply. It’s easy. The innovative VivaPen also features a smart ‘click’ mechanism, which dispenses the adhesive in just the right amount.
The VivaPen sustainability principle
The VivaPen is synonymous with optimum material usage:
- Since the adhesive is applied in the mouth, it does not have to be pre-dispensed into a mixing well. This saves time and adhesive (Berndt et al, 2022)
- The VivaPen’s built-in locking mechanism and precision dispensing mechanism both prevent adhesive from being wasted due to the formation of deposits in the cap, drops running down the bottle and evaporation (BMEL, 2023). These features also enable the pen to be emptied more effectively. Up to 30 times more unused adhesive is discarded in conventional bottles (BMEL, 2023)
- Because the adhesive can be exactly dispensed with the VivaPen, you can carry out an average of almost four times more applications per millilitre of contents (Berndt et al, 2022).
Fact: One VivaPen contains enough adhesive for 187 single-tooth applications (Berndt et al, 2022). In this context, the VivaPen beats comparable products by far.
*Except in cases where sufficient exposure to curing light cannot be ensured (eg bonding of root canal posts)
