FAQ

What is the application time for 37% phosphoric acid gel?

30-37% phosphoric acid gel should be applied to the edges of the enamel, internal enamel, and dentin for around 15 seconds, regardless of the age of the patient and cavity depth.

What is the importance of acid etching to the dental structure?

Adequate etching of the enamel and dentin and the subsequent hybridization of these confers sufficient retention to the restorations, enables achievement of an adequate seal, and reinforces the remaining tooth structure.
