Radiograph and Scotchbond Universal Plus Adhesive bottle with plus symbol
Introducing the first radiopaque universal adhesive


    3M™ Scotchbond™ Universal Plus Adhesive



    Now, the next evolution is here: 3M™ Scotchbond™ Universal Plus Adhesive offers all the benefits of its predecessor with new levels of control and predictability.



    “The product was easy to apply, ensuring low wastage, and I particularly liked the consistency. The new design of the bottle is great as it is stable and heavy enough not to be toppled over. It certainly supports a simple workflow and I have not even had one failure, so the bond strength is reliable.

    I was also very pleased with the radiopacity of the product – it was clear and the margin between the dentine and the material was very apparent."

    Dr A Riley (Kent, United Kingdom)

One next-generation adhesive. Two steps forward for minimally invasive dentistry.

  • Comparison of non-radiopaque adhesive shadow and radiopaque Scotchbond Universal Plus Adhesive
    Added radiopacity

    Radiolucency under an existing restoration can lead to misdiagnosis – and potentially invasive overtreatment. Scotchbond Universal Plus Adhesive is the first universal adhesive with dentine-like radiopacity, helping to overcome this issue.*

  • Cross-section of tooth with caries-affected dentin
    Bonds & seals caries-affected dentine

    Scotchbond Universal Plus Adhesive gives you confidence when performing minimally invasive preparations because it has the same high bond strength to caries-affected dentine as to sound dentine.*

    In addition to the excellent quality of restoration margins, it seals caries-affected dentine by forming a well-defined, void-free hybrid layer.* Because “the seal is the deal” to prevent secondary decay.

Why is radiopacity so important?

"Radiolucent adhesive pooling underneath a restoration doubles the risk of restoration replacement."
