ACTIVA BioACTIVE products are the first dental resins with a bioactive ionic resin matrix, shock-absorbing rubberized resin component, and reactive ionomer glass fillers that mimic the physical and chemical properties of natural teeth. These bioactive materials actively participate in the cycles of ionic exchange that regulate the natural chemistry of our teeth and saliva and contribute to the maintenance of tooth structure and oral health.
ACTIVA has the strength, esthetics and physical properties of composites and is more bioactive than glass ionomers,1 combining the best attributes of both materials without compromising either one. ACTIVA chemically bonds and seals teeth against microleakage,2,3and its continuous release and recharge of significant amounts of calcium, phosphate and fluoride ions provide patients with long-term benefits.
ACTIVA BioACTIVE products contain no Bisphenol A, no Bis-GMA and no BPA derivatives. They are two-paste, automix systems with three setting mechanisms: light cure, self-cure resin chemistry, and self-cure glass ionomer reaction.
