Ivoclar Vivadent Introduces New Light- and Dual-curing Adhesive Systems
Ivoclar Vivadent, Inc., is pleased to introduce ExciTE F and ExciTE F DSC, two high performance, fluoride-releasing, total-etch adhesives that dentists
can choose from depending on whether or not a curing light can be used to polymerize the adhesive. ExciTE F, a light-curing, total etch adhesive, is
indicated for cases where curing-light exposure is ensured. ExciTE F DSC, a dual-curing single component, total etch adhesive, is indicated in
situations where access with a curing light may be limited or when chemically cured composites or cements are used.
Requiring just a quick, one-coat application, ExciTE F and ExciTE F DSC enable shortened procedure times and produce a visible glossy layer to ensure
coverage. Suitable for direct and indirect restorations, both adhesives demonstrate a low film thickness and feature an acetone-free chemistry.
ExciTE F is available in the unique VivaPen delivery form in addition to bottles and single dose vessels. The convenient and ergonomic VivaPen
contains sufficient adhesive for approximately 120 applications. A new integrated fill-level indicator enables reliable control of remaining
adhesive and the specially designed applicator tips minimize waste and maximize efficiency.
ExciTE F DSC is the only dual-cure adhesive available in hygienic single-dose vessels in two sizes: “Regular” for normal preparations and “Small/Endo”
for micro-cavities and endodontic applications.
