Award-winning restorative receives 98% rating at two-year recall

Pulpdent, in association with Prestige Dental Ltd, is delighted to announce that, in the recent Dental Advisor Award Review, Activa Bioactive Restorative received a clinical performance rating of 98% at the two-year recall.

Results are based on a two-year review of 158 restorations, placed with and without the use of a bonding agent, and show:

  • A lack of postoperative sensitivity – zero patients
  • Excellent aesthetics with no need for replacement
  • Excellent resistance to marginal discolouration
  • 99% resistance to wear
  • Excellent retention.

Unlike traditional aesthetic restorative materials, Activa Bioactive stimulates apatite formation at the tooth-material interface, which reduces sensitivity, guards against secondary caries, and seals margins against microleakage and failure.

The material is moisture-friendly and contains a shock-absorbing rubberised resin component and bioactive glass fillers that mimic the physical and chemical properties of natural teeth.

It delivers all the advantages of glass ionomers and composites, is dual-cure, durable, releases more calcium, phosphate, fluoride ions than GIs and is, Bisphenol A, Bis-GMA, BPA derivative-free.

Activa Bioactive was awarded the Dental Advisor Top Bioactive Product in 2016 and 2017.

Activa Bioactive is distributed in the UK by Prestige Dental.
