“The Dynamic Approach to Restorative Dentistry”
“Giving the Tooth What It Wants”
BioACTIVITY: What it is? What it does? How it’s different?
Learn about BioACTIVE-RESTORATIVE
This seminar is Sponsored by the Pulpdent Corporation
What is Bioactivity?
“A bioactive material is one that forms a surface layer of an apatite-like material in the presence of saliva
- Bioactive Materials stimulate the natural remineralization process that helps protect teeth against caries.
- Bioactive Materials are moisture friendly, transport water, and release and recharge essential minerals such as calcium, phosphate, and fluoride.
- Bioactive Materials are dynamic, not passive, and in the presence of saliva they elicit a biological response that forms a layer of apatite and a natural bond between the material and the tooth.
- How does the science and research community define bioactivity
- How do bioactive materials differ from traditional materials
- Understand how bioactive materials benefit your practice and patient outcomes
- Learn about the life expectancy of current dental restorative materials
- Discuss the need for new ideas and concepts in dental materials
- Describe the physical characteristics and protocols for use of BioACTIVE-RESTORATIVE
- Review clinical cases that demonstrate the wide range of applications for this material
- Discuss ways in which BioACTIVE-RESTORATIVE advances the category of adhesive dental repair material
This program will focus on the use of BioACTIVE-RESTORATIVE, bioactive ionic resin-based composite.
The cases highlight the diversity of uses for the material, as well as its durability and reliability for use in pediatric or teenaged patients.
This presentation demonstrates the features of bioactive restoratives in a series of clinical cases highlighting the range of applications and benefits.
For more than 100 years most dental materials have been formulated to be passive or neutral in the oral environment. Unfortunately, all prospects of being dynamic in the oral environment were missed. Most current restorative materials do not contain the ions the tooth needs to find equilibrium or resins capable of significant ionic diffusion. Recent developments in bioactive resin chemistries and apatite forming mineralized products have created a new way to restore what the tooth has lost, both ionically and biomimetically. These new materials can provide the ions and minerals needed to stimulate apatite formation and enhance the restorative process and patient outcomes.
