Top marks for Dentsply Sirona’s class II solution

The prestigious Product Research and Evaluation by Practitioners (PREP) panel, has roundly recommended Dentsply Sirona’s Class II Solution in a recent practice-based trial.

Dentsply Sirona’s Class II Solution System was recently evaluated by the prestigious PREP panel, led by Professor Trevor Burke. The independent panel, comprising UK practice-based GDP researchers, has completed over 70 projects from dental manufacturers; evaluating materials, techniques and conducting clinical evaluations of restorations placed under general dental practice conditions.

The products included in this evaluation were the bonding system Prime&bond, Palodent V3 sectional, SDR Flow+ composite, Ceram.x Universal composite (now known as Ceram.x Spectra ST) and the Enhance Finishing and Polishing system. As a system, the products scored an impressive 4.5 out of 5, when appraised across 27 different criteria.

The evaluators were fulsome in their praise for the individual products which make up the Class II Solution System: ‘Excellent product – best bulk fill I have come across’ in relation to SDR Flow+, ‘Loved the various shades – I have been waiting for this to happen’ when considering Ceram.x and ‘Best polishing paste available’ with regards to Enhance.

Prime&bond Active was praised for its ‘ease of use’, the Enhance Finishing and Polishing System won the recommendation of 83% of the evaluators, whilst the number of GDPs endorsing the Palodent V3 Sectional Matrix System doubled, from five original users to 10 saying they would use in the future. The PREP panel was particularly impressed with SDR Flow+ bulk fill and Ceram.x Universal composite, with 92% saying they would recommend to colleagues.

Overall, the group was impressed by the performance of individual products but also felt that having all the restorative components in a ‘one-stop solution’ was a welcome, appealing and cost-effective solution.
