ACTIVATM BioACTIVE-RESTORATIVETM received the Top Bioactive Product Award from THE DENTAL ADVISOR for the third year running in 2018. The first esthetic bioactive dental material continues to impress dentist evaluators.
ACTIVA BioACTIVE responds to pH changes in the oral environment by releasing and recharging calcium, phosphate and fluoride. This unique chemistry supports the natural remineralization process and helps form a seal between the material and the tooth. Unlike traditional composites, which are generally hydrophobic and brittle, ACTIVA BioACTIVE contains a shock-absorbing rubberized resin that resists chipping and wear. Dentist evaluators found that “the esthetics were excellent at 2 years.”
“To be considered for an award, products must receive an excellent rating by THE DENTAL ADVISOR, as well as stand out from all others in the market place,” said Dr. Sabiha Bunek, The Dental Advisor’s Editor-in-Chief. ACTIVA BioACTIVE responds to pH cycles and an evaluator for THE DENTAL ADVISOR noted that “the uptake of Calcium, Phosphate and Fluoride could have a positive effect.” (The Dental Advisor Evaluator Comments, Top Product 2018).
In 2017, The Dental Advisor rated ACTIVA™ BioACTIVE-RESTORATIVE™ as excellent, with 5 plus (+++++) and a 98% clinical performance rating after the second year of a long-term clinical evaluation of 194 anterior and posterior restorations. Dentist evaluators used the material for a variety of applications, including 1, 2, 3 and 4 surface restorations and core build-ups.
