SEcure is a self-etching, dual-cure resin cement for onlays, inlays, crowns and bridges. It contains 4-META*, a high performance adhesive monomer that creates excellent bonds to dentin and enamel by virtue of formation of a hybrid layer. Chemically SEcure is a resin cement and thus water resistant. Removal of excess resin is quick and easy. The cement is radiopaque. The pretreatment with V-PRIMER for precious metals and Porcelain Liner M for porcelain will further enhance the bond strength and its durability. * 4-methacryloxyethyl trimellitate anhydride 1
- Incredible sealability
New SEcure’s 4-META adhesion brings you incredible sealability, to protect the tooth from marginal leakage, and sensitivity.
- Exceptional bond strength
SEcure shows significantly higher bond strength to tooth structure than most other simplified adhesives.
- Extremely easy to use
Apply SEcure Primer onto the cut enamel and dentin. Keep it wet for 10-20 sec., and gently air blow the surface to dry it. Then, dispense SEcure cement directly from the auto-mix tip into the restoration and seat it. That’s all there is to it.
SEcure is dual-cure cement, so it’s completely reliable even where a curing light does not reach, e.g. under PFM crown post-holes.
Tensile Bond Strength :
- Enamel : 8 (+/-2)
- Dentin : 5 (+/-2)
Shear Bond Strength:
- Enamel : 25 MPa
- Dentin : 25 MPa
CURING TIME :
SECURE is dual-cure cement , so it’s completely reliable even where a curing light does not reach e.g under PFM crowns, down post-holes.
Light Cure : 20 secs
Self Cure : 3 mins
- 1 x 9g Dual-cure Resin Cement (Shade: Translucent)
- 1 x 3 mL Self-etching Primer
- 10 pcs xMixing Tip
- SEcure should not be used by clinicians or on patients who are sensitive to methacrylates or resin cements. If signs of irritation such as redness appear, stop using SEcure immediately and consult a physician.
- Avoid contacting soft tissues, skin or eyes by SEcure components. The use of rubber dam is recommended. Contaminated skin or mucosa should be wiped immediately with alcohol and then rinsed thoroughly with copious amounts of running water. If SEcure components enter the eye, rinse immediately and thoroughly with running water and have the patient examined by an ophthalmologist. Clinicians should use dental gloves.
- If the preparation approaches the pulp, apply a protective liner or base.
- The Primer is flammable. Keep away from open flame in use and storage.
- Only use SEcure for the applications recommended in these instructions.
- The kit should be stored IN A REFRIGERATOR. High temperature and direct sunlight will shorten their shelf-life.
- To avoid contamination, do not mix the components with other materials. Firmly recap the containers immediately after use. After the cementing procedure, dispose of any excess of mixed materials. Once dispensed do not return materials to the containers.
The resin restoration was cemented on teeth using the most popular self-adhesive cements and SEcure. The teeth were then mechanically loaded 400,000 times, and subjected to 5,000 thermocycles. They were soaked in blue dye for 24 Hours, and then sectioned longitudinally at two locations to reveal leakage.
As you can see, the difference between SEcure and the other adhesives is impressive.
SEcure works beautifully with Hybrid Bond (see chart below). So if you already use Hybrid Bond to hybridize and protect the preparation, there’s no need to order the SEcure Primer. You just need a refill syringe of the SEcure cement.
As you can see, unless the SEcure Primer or Hybrid Bond is first applied to the tooth, the SEcure paste will form only a minimal bond to dentin.That’s why we recommend always using SEcure with a primer – either the SEcure Primer or Hybrid Bond.
Apply SEcure Primer onto the cut enamel and dentin. Keep it wet for 10-20 seconds, and gently air blow the surface to dry it. Then dispense SEcure cement directly from the auto-mix tip into the restoration and seat it. That’s all there is to it.
SEcure is dual-cure cement, so it’s completely reliable even where a curing light does not reach, e.g. under PFM crowns, down post-holes.
Light-cure —- 20 seconds
Self-cure — 3 minutes
Easy Excess Removal
If you don’t have time, cure the margins with a curing light for 1-2 seconds and you can start cleanup almost immediately.
