GLUMA Self Etch – Step-by-step application
GLUMA Self Etch, the 7th generation all-in-one bonding agent that etches, primes, bonds and desensitises in one single step. With numerous scientific studies and based on our long-term bonding expertise, GLUMA Self Etch combines high bond strength, improved marginal sealing and virtually no post-operative sensitivity with an easy, fast and more convenient application.
GLUMA Self Etch is applicable for all types of restorations, direct and indirect. Due to the very fast application time, it is ideally suited for treatment of children or hyperactive patients.
GLUMA Self Etch – Over 500 dentists in Europe have already used GLUMA Self Etch in more than 73,000 restorations*

Rubbing in leads to demineralisation and diffusion of GLUMA Self Etch into the tooth structure. The adhesion quality is increased as a result.
No. The enamel should be roughened prior to applying GLUMA Self Etch in order to also be in a position to achieve suffi cient adhesion in aprismatic regions. The etching process is less effective on unground enamel.
Yes. However, separate etching with phosphoric acid should previously take place on sclerotic dentine for 30 seconds.
20 seconds (min. 400–500mW/cm²)
Adhesive layer: 3 – 5 μm, hybrid layer: 0.3 – 0.5 μm, the GLUMA Self Etch hybrid layer corresponds exactly to the demineralisation depth. Good wetting of the tooth surface with adhesive and a sufficient amount of adhesive on the tooth after blowing are very important for adhesion. It is also important that the hybrid layer corresponds to the demineralisation depth, because this prevents post-operative sensitivities.
The lower water content and the increased monomer content in GLUMA Self Etch simplifies blowing away solvents. The consistency of GLUMA Self Etch is higher due to the fillers contained and this leads to a homogenous adhesive layer. This means that GLUMA Self Etch offers higher user assurance, which leads to greater adhesion and improved marginal quality. This has been confirmed in clinical investigations.
Class V cavities were prepared in extracted teeth, among others. These were filled with GLUMA Self Etch and Venus. After polishing, the teeth were kept in water for 24 hours and thermocycled (10,000 cycles). The final stain penetration test showed no marginal discolouration. An additional clinical test with 6 dentists showed no marginal discolouration in 56 restorations after 8 weeks.
The percentage of fillers in GLUMA Self Etch is less than 1%
GLUMA Self Etch contains monomers that precipitate proteins, which block the dentine tubules.
According to our experience, the adhesion of GLUMA Self Etch is not impaired by the application of GLUMA Desensitizer.
No! GLUMA Self Etch can only be used in conjunction with light-curing materials. Dual or self-curing materials inhibit the polymerisation process.
Yes. Just a few μm from the calcium hydroxide surface are slightly dissolved.
Acetone absorbs the monomers in the depth of the tooth structure and this increases the thickness of the hybrid layer and adhesion. Acetone is very easy to blow away and remove from the tooth surface, which allows simple application.
