5 More Ways to Use ACTIVA BioACTIVE-RESTORATIVE

Dentists contact us on a regular basis to share their experiences with ACTIVA BioACTIVE. Here are 5 ways your colleagues are using ACTIVA to rebuild smiles.

  1. Bulk Fill: ACTIVA’s dual cure chemistry ensures depth of cure and reduces polymerization shrinkage. The syringe technique saves time and eliminates voids.
  2. Save Failing Crowns: ACTIVA forms a seal between the tooth and crown and reduces the risk of microleakage and secondary decay. Price-sensitive patients can have their existing restorations fixed rather than replaced.
  3. Anterior Restorations: ACTIVA BioACTIVE is esthetic and comes in a variety of shades. The material looks and behaves like natural teeth, with a shock-absorbing rubberized resin that resists fracture and chipping.
  4. Strip Crowns: ACTIVA’s easy handling, flowability and dual cure properties make it ideal for strip crowns, a fast and economical solution for children and cost-conscious adults.
  5. Universal Restorative Material: More and more dentists are using ACTIVA BioACTIVE-RESTORATIVE as their primary restorative material for all cavity classes. Click here to find out why.
