Pulpdent launches bioactive restorative and base/liner

Pulpdent has launched its new Activa restorative and base/liner at the Chicago Dental Society Midwinter Meeting.

The bioactive restorative makes it possible to create restorations that actively release and exchange calcium, phosphate, and fluoride ions, while being dynamic with the tooth function, according to the company.

Activa products are also the first bioactive dental materials with an ionic resin matrix, a shock-absorbing resin component, and bioactive fillers that mimic the physical and chemical properties of natural teeth, Pulpdent noted. They are durable and wear- and fracture-resistant, chemically bond to teeth, seal against bacterial microleakage, and release and recharge calcium, phosphate, and fluoride ions with the surrounding teeth.

In addition, the material seals with marginal integrity, requires no bonding agents, and contains no bisphenol A (BPA), bisphenol A glycidyl methacrylate (bis-GMA), or BPA derivatives.

Activa products are formulated with a bioactive resin matrix and bioactive fillers. Activa is the only product the FDA has allowed to make this claim, putting it in a new category of bioactive dental products, according to Pulpdent.
