Zinc: Bactericidal action and greater mechanical resistance.
High mechanical resistance: Longevity of restoration.
Induction of dentinal neoformation
Release of fluoride: It acts as a reservoir of fluoride ions.
Radiopacity: Possibility of radiographic diagnosis.
Self-curing: Fast setting material favoring application, specially in deciduous teeth.
- Restoration of deciduous teeth
- Provisional restorations in permanent teeth
- ART technique
- Restoration of non-carious cervical lesions
- Base for definitive restorations.
Step by step
Prepare the cavity, removing only carious tissue with a manual or rotary instrument. Due to the adhesive nature of the material, there is no need for additional retentions during preparation.
With the help of a cotton ball or micro applicators (Cavibrush – FGM), apply a drop of the liquid phase of the product onto the walls of the cavity preparation for 10 seconds. After that, rinse the cavity and remove any water excess, leaving it moist.
We recommend a rate of 1 spoonful of powder to 1 drop of the liquid. With a plastic spatula, mix the powder into the liquid, initially in small fractions and gradually increasing the mixture is fully homogenized. The time for spatulation must be 30 seconds.
After mixing, the material will look shiny and the viscosity will be optimum for application. The chemical curing period is between 3 to 4 minutes and during this stage it is essential that the tooth be properly insulated, avoiding contamination of the preparation and the material.
After curing, remove the excess material and check the occlusion, preventing premature contact.
