Xeno V+

Xeno V+

Xeno® V+ is the next generation in the Xeno® family. It is a one component self-etching dental adhesive designed to bond resin-based, light-curing direct restorative materials to enamel and dentine.
 
Xeno®  V+ has the following features:

  • New: Reduced curing time to only 10 seconds, compared to Xeno® V.
  • New: Patient friendly aroma.
  • It is applied in one coat and one step without mixing.
  • It etches and bonds enamel and dentine simultaneously and exhibits high bond strengths on enamel and dentine.
  • New: Monomers used in Xeno® V+ give improved safety compared to Xeno® V due to high tolerance towards storage conditions: refrigeration is no longer needed.
  • Xeno® V+ shows a high sealing and bonding performance.

 Most one-bottle adhesives need refrigeration to maintain product integrity, otherwise they degrade. Patented monomers used in Xeno® V+ are stable at room temperature. Xeno® V+ offers high performance for the whole shelf life when stored at chairside5.

Question:

What is the size of the Xeno® V+ bottle?

 

 

Answer:

Non-EU (green cap):

Xeno® V+ non-EU refill (606.67.318): 3.5ml

 

3.

Question:

How many applications are possible with a 3.5ml refill?

 

 

Answer:

The bonding treatment of more than 160 average size cavities is possible.

 

4.

Question:

What is the pH of the Xeno® V+ bonding?

 

 

Answer:

pH is ~1.3. This means it belongs to the more acidic self-etching bondings.

 

5.

Question:

What are the storage conditions and shelf life of Xeno® V+?

 

 

Answer:

2 year shelf life at 2 – 24°C. Keep out of sunlight.

 

6.

Question:

Is a unit dose delivery available?

 

 

Answer:

Not at the moment.

 

7.

Question:

Does the bonding have a colour?

 

 

Answer:

It is yellow, however, in thin layers it is colourless.

 

8.

Question:

Is it visible on tooth surface?

 

 

Answer:

Visibility in occlusal cavities: Xeno® III < Xeno® V < Xeno® V+

 

9.

Question:

Does Xeno® V+ contain nano-fillers?

 

 

Answer:

No.

 

10.

Question:

Does Xeno® V+ release fluoride?

 

 

Answer:

No.

 

11.

Question:

Xeno® V+ contains solvent tertiary Butanol and water. What is the difference to XP bond® which contains “pure” tertiary Butanol?

 

 

Answer:

Water is in the formulation necessary to receive a well balanced polarity. On one hand this is high enough for the acidic monomers to unfold the acidicy and on the other hand low enough to solve less polar ingredients like initiators.

 

12.

Question:

Why is active agitation of the bonding on the tooth surface recommended?

 

 

Answer:

Active agitation helps to allow complete wetting of the cavity and to avoid pooling.

 

13.

Question:

For application of pit and fissure sealants, does Xeno® V+ need to be cured prior to the sealant application?

 

 

Answer:

Xeno® V+ is indicated to be used with light cured materials on instrumented enamel. Information For Use of sealant has to be noticed.

 

14.

Question:

Does the LED light need to be stronger in light output compared to Halogen lights when curing Xeno® V+?

 

 

Answer:

No. Every LED or Halogen curing light with an output of ≥ 500mW/cm2 can be used. In case of an output of ≥ 800 mW/cm2, curing time can be reduced from 20 seconds. to 10 seconds.

 

15.

Question:

What is important when more than one cavity has to be treated?

 

 

Answer:

When restoring multiple cavities it is advisable to fully restore one cavity (adhesive and restorative) before proceeding to the next cavity.

 

16.

Question:

What is the advantage that no cold storage is required? 

 

Answer:

• You can be sure that the bonding performance is not negatively affected, when the material is stored chairside or transported from the dealer without cooling it.

• Handling in the office is easier: no ‘warm up period’ has to be taken into account before usage of the bonding. 

 

17.

Question:

Which technique for restoration of class V is recommended by Opinion Leaders?

 

 

Answer:

Recommendation of Professor. Dondi, University of Bologna, Italy:

 1) Layering (Class V):

o    1st layer: Thickness less than 1mm (dentine   material),

o    2nd layer: Thickness approx. 1mm (dentine   material),

o    3rd layer: Rest (enamel material).

2) Light-curing, generally, every layer: Start in distance of 10mm for 10s, thereafter 10s direct contact to material.

Question:

Why do white margins occasionally occur and how do I avoid them?

 

 

Answer:

White margins after curing may result for various reasons. Recommendations to avoid the white margin effect are listed below:

1) Cause: Application of too much adhesive may cause pooling upon evaporation of solvent. This may lead to a thick adhesive layer, which may become visible due to a difference in refractive indices of the tooth substrate, bonding layer and composite.

Recommendation: Avoid excessive amounts of adhesive. Apply a thin layer only. Agitate for 20 seconds. Make sure that the complete cavity surface is coated (glossy appearance).

2) Cause: Too much water remaining in the cavity after cavity preparation and rinsing,   due to insufficient blowing. The remaining water dilutes the adhesive and impairs the complete removal of the aqueous solvent system.

Recommendation: Carefully remove rinsing water, but avoid desiccation. Cavity should be moist, but not wet (no water pooling).

3) Cause: Remaining water in the cured adhesive layer due to insufficient removal of the aqueous solvent system. Insufficient removal of the solvent system may be caused by (a) moist air stream, (b) air syringe too distant from cavity, (c) air stream not focused onto cavity surface, (d) too short blowing time.

Recommendation: (a) check for sufficient dry air stream (i.e. blow onto filter paper or alternatively blow onto mirror. Filter paper or mirror shall remain dry), (b) start from a distance and close in during air blowing, (c) focus air stream onto cavity surface and check for initial movement of adhesive layer during solvent evaporation, (d) ensure both sufficient blowing time of at least 5 seconds and no movement of adhesive layer.

Question:

Do white margins impair the adhesive performance?

 

 

Answer:

Based on Sheer Bond Strength testing white margins do not affect bond strength of Xeno® V+.
