Adhesives to Avoid

Recommended Bite Turbo Material

  1. LightBond Blue Push Paste w/ Fluoride  (SKU LBBPPF) << Link to order

Recommended Phosphoric Etchant

It is recommended to use a phosphoric gel etchant to provide effective demineralization of the enamel producing the necessary retentive surface for successful bonding. The gel will allow the technician to have better control of the area being etched for preparation of bonding.

  1. Reliance Etchant (gel) << Link to Order info (37% phosphoric acid)

(Liquid Etch is not recommended to use with LightForce, due to the difficulty in controlling the amount used for the prepped area- offices using a liquid etch may experience debonds (days or weeks later) or IDB tray unnecessarily adhering to teeth with extra flash during removal)

Recommended Primer
