Product Details

PermaQuick Primer has a unique, patented chemistry. The tissue-kind, ethyl alcohol primer contains natural, light-polymerizable resins that help facilitate penetration into hydrophilic dentin substrates. These natural resins also provide a degree of elasticity, dissipating curing stresses and creating higher flexibility. PermaQuick Primer provides the optimum preparation for PermaQuick Bonding Resin, which is a 45%-filled, fluoride-releasing, light-cured bonding resin that penetrates into primer-treated tubules and intertubular spaces. PermaQuick Bonding Resin is as radiopaque as dentin. With minimal film thickness, PermaQuick is ideal for indirect bonding.

Indications for Use

PermaQuick®

Use PermaQuick for most bonding needs in restorative dentistry. PermaQuick is conducive for bonding to dentin/enamel/composite, using composite or amalgam, and porcelain or metal light-cured luting.

​Etch and prime preparation, light cure. Apply PermaQuick Bonding Resin to preparation. DO NOT LIGHT CURE! Apply luting resin to veneer. Seat veneer. Light cure bonding resin and luting resin simultaneously.

Technical Details

Consistent High Bond Strengths

​PermaQuick features a flexible resin structure that contributes to its excellent bond strengths by helping to maintain a strong bond during composite polymerization shrinkage as well as during the extreme thermal changes that cause strain to the bond interface.

Versatile

​When aided by additional materials, PermaQuick can also be used for bonding to metal, porcelain, and composites, so in addition to being used for restorations, it can also be used for bonding posts, porcelain repair, some lutings, and many other procedures. And because it can seal dentinal tubules, it can, in many cases, also make an ideal base.

Testimonials

  • “The 4th generation technique may be old fashioned, but there is nothing better for dentin and enamel when you absolutely, positively have to be sure of the bond.”

    Dr. Richard C. Nichols – Phoenix, AZ
  • ​“I would still rather have a 12-year-old bonding agent and a 20-year-old composite in my inventory than the newer systems today.”

    Dr. Jeff Brucia – San Francisco, CA

FAQs

  • Can you explain how a highly filled bonding resin creates a higher bond strength?

    ​Fillers in bonding agents facilitate stronger bonds because their presence reduces polymerization shrinkage, has a lower coefficient of expansion, and reduces water absorption of the bonding resin. When resins cure, they shrink, and the fillers provide a basic structure to counteract that shrinkage. When two different materials (such as a resin and a tooth) are exposed to temperature changes, they expand and contract at different rates. The fillers placed in resins typically have a coefficient of expansion that is similar to that of a tooth; therefore, the tooth and the resin expand and contract more closely to the same amount, placing less force on the tooth resin interface. Unfilled resins absorb water, which cause them to distort through a process called hydrolysis. The addition of fillers reduces the amount or degree of water absorption. This, again, places less detrimental force on the tooth-to-bonding-resin interface. The addition of fillers reduces the loss of bonding resin at the margin, providing fluoride when appropriate with fluoride-containing fillers (such as with PQ1 and PermaQuick) and increases the strength of resins. All of these improved physical properties make the use of a filled bonding resin preferable over an unfilled bonding resin.

  • How radiopaque is PermaQuick?

    ​PermaQuick is as radiopaque as dentin, making it easy to see on an x-ray.

  • Will PermaQuick set in the tip after use?

    ​Yes. Because all light-activated bonding resins are sensitive to ambient light, PermaQuick will set in the tip after a few hours. To avoid any clogging, we recommend you remove the tip and place the Luer Lock cap back on the syringe between uses.

  • How should PermaQuick be stored?

    ​If you’re using it every day, room-temperature storage is fine. Any syringes of PermaQuick not used daily should be stored in the refrigerator.
