KEY TAKEAWAYS:

  • Restorative materials are constantly under biological assault due to acid attack and the effects of demineralization on tooth structure.
  • Bioactive restoratives participate in an ionic exchange of calcium, phosphate, and fluoride that helps neutralize acid attack and supports natural remineralization.
  • These materials address many of the challenges typically associated with the treatment of pediatric and geriatric patients.

Restorative materials are constantly under biological assault due to acid attack and the effects of demineralization on tooth structure. Clinical outcomes can vary from patient to patient due to the individual's oral environment (pH), quality and quantity of saliva, acidic challenge to the tooth-restorative interface (margin), and the patient's ability to keep these surfaces plaque free (level of home care).

Bioactive restorations address these challenges by participating in an ionic exchange of calcium, phosphate, and fluoride that helps neutralize acid attack and supports the natural remineralization process.

In this eBook, Dr. Robert Lowe demonstrates the features of bioactive restoratives in a series of clinical cases highlighting the range of applications and benefits.
