Pronto is available in select markets.

Pronto is a low flow light cure composite that stays where placed and does not slump. It is strong, durable, wear and fracture resistant, releases and recharges calcium, phosphate and fluoride, and is indicated for all classes of cavities.

Hydrophilic Rubberized Resin

  • Highly esthetic, light cure, dentin and enamel replacement material
  • Patented rubberized resin absorbs stress and resists wear, fracture, and chipping, even in thin areas on bevel margins
  • Hydrophilic resin releases and recharges calcium, phosphate and fluoride ions
  • Penetrates and integrates with tooth structure for margin-free adaptation to teeth
  • Contains No Bis-GMA, No Bisphenol A, No BPA derivatives
  • Available shades: A1, A2, A3, B1, BW, Pink

Clinical Advantages

  • Unique low flow composite holds shape and does not slump for controlled placement
  • Strong, tough, durable, wear and fracture resistant
  • Versatile – Universal composite for all classes of cavities
  • Highly radiopaque (250%)
  • Easy to place, easy to use 2mL syringes

Physical Properties

  • Light cure setting time: 20 ± 2 seconds
  • Percentage filler by weight: 70%
  • Compressive strength: 314 MPa ± 8 MPa
  • Diametral tensile strength: 53 MPa ± 2 MPa
  • Deflection at break 8mm
  • Radiopacity: 2.5 Al (250%)

3 Reasons to Use a Stackable Composite

Until recently, clinicians had two options for composite viscosity, either flowable or packable. Now there is a new category of material that provides the best of both worlds: the stackable composite.

Here are three reasons why dentists are choosing stackable composites for their restorative procedures:

Ease of Placement: Stackable composites adapt to line angles and the axial walls of a cavity, especially in deep preparations. They also hold their shape and do not slump, making them ideal for areas that require layering and/or controlled placement.

Versatility: Stackable composites are indicated for all classes of restorations. Clinicians can use this one material to line the bottom of a preparation, build up the restoration and create occlusal anatomy. This simplifies clinical technique (no need for multiple composites), cuts down on waste and reduces inventory.

Strength: Stackable composites are highly filled, with strength, durability, and wear comparable to packable materials. A new universal stackable material also contains a rubberized resin that absorbs shock and resists fracture and chipping, even when applied in thin layers on beveled margins.
