ACTIVA Receives 2019 Top Bioactive Product Award From The Dental Advisor
ACTIVATM BioACTIVE-RESTORATIVETM received the Top Bioactive Product Award from THE DENTAL ADVISOR for 2019. The original bioactive composite 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 remineralisation 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 rubberised resin that resists chipping and wear. Dentist evaluators found that “the aesthetics were excellent at two 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 five 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.
