INTRODUCING THE LATEST ADVANCEMENTS IN BIOACTIVE MATERIALS

 

Parkell’s NEW Predicta™ Bioactive Bulk and Predicta™ Bioactive Core are dual cure, resin composites that release fluoride, calcium and phosphate ions to stimulate mineral apatite formation and remineralization at the material-tooth interface. Predicta Bioactive materials deliver a unique combination of physical and chemical properties. They are dimensionally stable, with excellent strength, time-efficient handling, and optical characteristics close to those of natural teeth.

Mineral Apatite Formation

Stimulates mineral apatite formation: Materials release mineral components (calcium and phosphate) which stimulate formation of a protective layer of mineral apatite; the defining requirement of bioactive materials.

Predicta™ Bioactive Bulk

Predicta™ Bioactive Bulk is one the latest examples of cutting-edge restorative materials from Parkell. It is a bioactive, dual cure, bulk-fill resin composite, that releases calcium and phosphate ions and recharge to stimulate mineral apatite formation and remineralization at the material-tooth interface. Predicta™ Bioactive Bulk delivers a unique combination of physical and chemical properties.  It is dimensionally stable, with excellent strength, time-efficient handling, and optical characteristics close to those of natural teeth.

Additionally, unlike some other bioactive materials, Predicta Bioactive Bulk is highly radiopaque, making for easy identification on xrays. See below.

 

Predicta Bioactive Bulk:

  • Stimulates mineral apatite formation: Materials release mineral components (calcium and phosphate) which stimulate formation of a protective layer of mineral apatite; the defining requirement of bioactive materials.
  • Unlimited depth of cure ensures that the deepest portions of the restoration will polymerize.
  • Ideal thixotropic viscosity for easy cavity adaptation. Low viscosity (LV) version available for those who prefer a highly flowable bulk-fill.
  • Nano-filled for durability and optimized polishability for life-like aesthetic outcomes
  • Clinical Versatility: Indicated for Class I, II, III, IV, and V restorations. Ideal for bulk filling.
  • Fast and Easy: Automix hand syringe delivery (5mL syringe) May be used with a 5ml dispensing gun if desired. (sold separately)
  • Highly Radiopaque: At 280% Aluminum, the material is easily identifiable on xrays.

Predicta™ Bioactive Core

Predicta™ Bioactive Core is one the latest examples of cutting-edge restorative materials from Parkell. It is a bioactive, dual cure, core-build-up resin composite, that releases calcium and phosphate ions and recharge to stimulate mineral apatite formation and remineralization at the material-tooth interface. Predicta™ Bioactive Core delivers a unique combination of physical and chemical properties.  It is dimensionally stable, with excellent strength, time-efficient handling, and physical properties similar to those of natural dentin. Additionally, unlike some other bioactive materials, Predicta Bioactive Bulk is highly radiopaque, making for easy identification on xrays.

 

Predicta Bioactive Core:

  • Stimulates mineral apatite formation: Materials release mineral components (calcium and phosphate) which stimulate formation of a protective layer of mineral apatite; the defining requirement of bioactive materials.
  • Contains Zirconia for enhanced cuttability; helping to eliminate ditching or gauging of the material when cutting around dentin
  • Versatile non-slumping formulation ideal for post cementation and core build-ups. Low viscosity (LV) version available for those who prefer a highly flowable core material.
  • High flexural strength for strong, stable cores that last and resist flexing
  • Unlimited depth of cure ensures that the deepest portions of the restoration will polymerize.
  • Fast and Easy: Automix hand syringe delivery (5mL syringe) May be used with a 5ml dispensing gun if desired. (sold separately)
  • Highly Radiopaque: At 280% Aluminum, the material is easily identifiable on xrays.

Both Predicta Bulk and Predicta Core will be available in May at Topdental, please visit www.topdental.org or call 0800 132 373 to find out more.
