I wanted to get your opinion on this cement as far as bond strength and would it be something worth using? Do you have anything similar and if so, what is the protocol? Also, do you know if the Luma5 curing light will be going cordless? Thanks for the help.

You can bond a post with Simplicity and Anchor. Check the video at the Apex Materials web site. Cool

If it worked well(good bond strength), a self bonding cement for posts would be more predictable, less technique sensitive, quicker and easier to use. The reason I post the question is 1)to get some feedback on this concept and 2)to find out if Apex is working on a similar product.

Thing is- what are you going to do with the rest of the core? You still have to bond it in. Thus it is simpler to bond everything rather than emply two different kinds of procedures.

Thanks for the reply, John. You're right, there wouldn' be any time saved and doing two separate proceedures doesn't make much sence.
On another note, has there been any indication from Ultradent regarding a cordless version of their light?

It's coming, but not real soon. I am not at liberty to be more specific. Sorry.
