Pulpdent notes using the tooth as the standard, they have developed a material that is esthetic, high strength and contains no Bis-GMA, no Bisphenol A and no BPA derivatives.
The magic of ACTIVA Presto is in the resin, which is moisture-friendly and facilitates the diffusion of bioavailable calcium, phosphate and fluoride ions. “It’s acting just like a tooth,” explains Larry Clark, Director of Clinical Affairs at Pulpdent, “it’s giving off and taking back ions.” This unique chemistry penetrates and integrates with tooth structure for margin-free adaptation. The material also contains a patented rubberized-resin that absorbs stress and resists wear, fracture, and chipping, even in thin areas on bevel margins.
This versatile material is indicated for all classes of cavities and comes in a variety of shades, including cervical shades A4 and A6, which are ideal for older patients. ACTIVA Presto is highly radiopaque (250%) and comes in easy to use 1.2 mL syringes.
ACTIVA Presto can be purchased through all major dental dealers in the United States.
