Introducing the first radiopaque universal adhesive.
Nearly a decade ago, 3M introduced the first truly universal adhesive. Since then, 3M™ Scotchbond™ Universal Adhesive has been clinically proven and has become the industry’s most researched universal adhesive.
Now, the next evolution is here: 3M™ Scotchbond™ Universal Plus Adhesive offers all the benefits of its predecessor with new levels of control and predictability.
Radiolucency under an existing restoration can lead to misdiagnosis – and potentially invasive overtreatment. Scotchbond Universal Plus Adhesive is the first universal adhesive with dentin-like radiopacity, helping to overcome this issue.

Scotchbond Universal Plus Adhesive gives you confidence when performing minimally invasive preparations because it has the same high bond strength to caries-affected dentin as to sound dentin.
In addition to the excellent quality of restoration margins, it seals caries-affected dentin by forming a well-defined, void-free hybrid layer. Because “the seal is the deal” to prevent secondary decay.
Scotchbond Universal Plus Adhesive keeps the popular benefits of the clinically-proven original formulation, with some new enhancements you’ll love.
Scotchbond Universal Plus Adhesive is suitable for all direct and indirect bonding procedures and all etching techniques. It can also serve as a universal primer for all restoration materials.
99% of dentists reported that Scotchbond Universal Plus Adhesive shows virtually no post-operative sensitivity,* just like its predecessor.
