Dentistry and Prosthetics
Silane acts only on surfaces which have silica (such as fiberglass and ceramic). Carbon fibers do not have silica in their composition, so they do not require the application of Silane.What is the advantage of Silane being in an ethanol solution?
Silane that uses ethanol as a solvent has less evaporation than those which use acetone.What is the gain in adhesion when Silane is used?
There is a 30% increase in adhesion when Silane is used.Does Silane need to be light activated?
Silane is a compound which does not require light in order to work.Should Silane be applied to the tooth?
No, Silane only works on materials with silica in their composition.
