BioACTIVE Products for ProACTIVE Dentistry
THE FUTURE OF DENTISTRY NOW IN YOUR HANDS
Changes everything you know about traditional composites, glass ionomers and RMGIs
ACTIVA BioACTIVE-RESTORATIVE is a highly esthetic, bioactive composite that delivers all the advantages of glass ionomers in a strong, resilient, resin matrix that will not chip or crumble. It chemically bonds to teeth, seals against bacterial microleakage, releases more fluoride and is more bioactive than glass ionomers, and is more durable and fracture resistant than composites.1,2,3,4,5,17,18
ACTIVA is the first bioactive composite with an ionic resin matrix, a shock-absorbing resin component and bioactive fillers that mimic the physical and chemical properties of natural teeth. It releases and recharges with calcium, phosphate and fluoride ions,1,7,9,11 delivering long-term benefits and better oral health care for your patients.
ACTIVA contains no Bisphenol A, No Bis-GMA and no BPA derivatives.
