This company’s new APC™ flash-free adhesive coated appliance system reportedly eliminates the flash removal step in bonding, which can reduce variability and save time for orthodontists and patients. The adhesive can reduce bonding time by up to 40% per bracket by eliminating the flash removal and clean-up step, thus reportedly allowing orthodontists to move directly from bracket placement to bracket cure. The adhesive reportedly demonstrates excellent tack and workability before light-cure and is able to deliver reliable bond strength.
