Pulpdent Launches ACTIVA Presto in United StatesNew Dental Filling Material Mimics the Properties of Natural Teeth
BOSTON, Jan. 2, 2020 -- (Healthcare Sales & Marketing Network) -- Pulpdent Corporation, a Boston-area dental research and manufacturing company, has launched Activa Presto, a new white dental filling material that mimics the properties of natural teeth.
Using the tooth as the standard, Pulpdent has 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.
Activa Presto is a stackable composite that holds its shape and will not slump. Dentist and popular lecturer Dr. Howard Glazer describes the product as "squirt and shoot" technology in a recent interview.
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.
