Product Details

Highly esthetic composite restorative material with a bioactive resin matrix that actively releases and exchanges calcium, phosphate and fluoride ions. Glass filler mimics the physical and chemical properties of natural teeth. Due to the high viscosity of the material, an Activa-Spenser™ dispensing gun (included in the starter kits) is required.

Aciva BioActive-Restorative
2-Year Clinical Performance
Description
Bioactive restorative materials are relatively new in dentistry. They are restoratives that are moisture friendly, transport water, and stimulate apatite formation at the material-tooth interface. In addition, these resins react to pH changes in the mouth by releasing and up-taking calcium, phosphate and fluoride ions, thus helping to maintain the chemical integrity of tooth structure. The first generation of this class of composites can be placed with or without a bonding agent and is delivered via a dual-barrel, automix syringe.

Clinical Protocol
A total of 194 anterior and posterior Activa BioActive-Restorative restorations were originally placed and 158 of these restorations were recalled at two years. 76% of the restorations were placed with the use of bonding agent after etching, and 24% were placed without bonding agent after etching. 27% of restorations were on 1 surface, 49% on 2 surfaces, 22% on 3 surfaces and 2% on 4 surfaces.

Results at 2 Years
Lack of Postoperative Sensitivity: After initial placement, only a few patients reported some sensitivity, which subsided over time. At the 2-year recall, no patients reported any postoperative sensitivity.

Esthetics: The esthetics of the restorations was excellent. 96% of the recalled 158 restorations received a rating of 5, while 3 received a rating of 4, and 3 a rating of 3. Lower ratings usually were the result of slight staining and discoloration. None of these restorations needed replacement.

Resistance to Marginal Discoloration: Resistance to marginal discoloration was also excellent. Only 4 out of the 158 restorations received a rating of less than 5. 2 had a rating of 4 and 2 others had a rating of 3.

Wear Resistance: 99% of the restorations exhibited no signs of wear. Only 2 of the recalled restorations exhibited slight wear.

Retention: Retention was excellent. One restoration out of the 158 partially debonded and was replaced.

Summary
Activa BioActive-Restorative performed extremely well at the 2-year recall. Each evaluated category received a 96% or better rating. Overall Activa BioActive-Restorative received a clinical performance rating of 98% at the two-year recall.

Consultants’ Comments
  • “I have used Activa BioActive-Restorative as a core in teeth with deep decay - the uptake of Ca, P and Fl could have a positive effect in these cases.”
  • ”I like using Activa BioActive-Restorative in pediatric patients - it bonded well without a bonding agent.”
  • ”The esthetics were excellent at 2 years.”
