1. Acid etching. Thoroughly dry the surface to be etched with dry, oilfree air.
CAUTION: ensure that the dispensing tip hub is firmly attached to the syringe by twisting the tip hub securely onto the syringe. The Super Etch tip may be bent to any desired angle. Place the tip against the surface to be coated and slowly apply the gel.
Note: on first usage, or after prolonged storage, extrude a small amount onto a mixing pad for familiarity with the etchant’s viscosity and rate of extrusion. Etch enamel for at least 30 seconds. Etch exposed dentin and glass ionomer liner for 20 seconds.
2. Rinse well with water for 5-10 seconds.
3. Remove excess water
