ACTIVA products are bioactive dental materials that provide life-like esthetics and function like a real tooth structure by absorbing and dispersing forces to disperse exceptional strength. These products combine all the benefits of composites and glass ionomers while eliminating the disadvantages associated with those materials.
ACTIVA products are also the first bioactive dental materials with an ionic resin matrix, a shock-absorbing resin component, and bioactive fillers that mimic the physical and chemical properties of natural teeth. They are durable and wear- and fracture-resistant, chemically bond to teeth, seal against bacterial microleakage, and release and recharge calcium, phosphate and fluoride ions with the surrounding teeth. These products contain no Bisphenol A, no Bis-GMA and no BPA derivatives.
The key to performance of ACTIVA products is the fact that they are formulated with a bioactive resin matrix and bioactive fillers. In fact, ACTIVA is the only product the U.S. Food & Drug Administration has allowed to make this claim, which means that ACTIVA represents an entirely new category of bioactive dental products.
