I was wondering if it is necessary to cure Anchor when cementing restorations or if you can allow it to self cure?

Also I was wondering if anyone knew what the immediate bond strengths are for Anchor with Surpass?

Thanks Very Happy

Anchor self cures remarkably well!

As for SBS - ALL composite substances we've tested with Surpass (even Simplicity for that matter) fail well before the adhesive does. Over the several years I've been using Anchor w Surpass or Simplicity I've had zero problems!

Thanks Gerry!

I'm loving the properties and clean up.

What would be the best procedure for inserting cerec poreclain restorations? Would light activation be the best way to go?

I just had an interesting experience re Anchor today.
I am doing a full arch upper and wanted to test drive the occlusion without buzzing down the teeth for crowns, so I took a putty of the wax up and put anchor in it and allowed it to set for 5+ minutes. After I took off the matrix there was uncured anchor where the anchor was touching the putty Surprised !!
What a surprise!!
I light cured it and it did set but it was not a smooth as I was hoping. There was about a .5mm thickness that was sticky still.
This made me a bit nervous about letting it set without light activating it.

Any comments?? or suggestions??

Thanks,
Rob

Because it sets slowly on its own there will always be an 02 inhibited layer. It is easily removed with alcohol or it will eventually be worn off on its own.

Brief exposure to light also makes it set.

By the way, it makes one heck of an interum restorative material.
