ACTIVA BioACTIVE Restorative A strong, durable, bio-active ionic resin restorative material

Bioactive – Certainly the new buzz word in dentistry.

Is this material Bioactive? What does Bioactive mean?

All it really means is that it’s a substance that interacts with living tissue.

A regenerative restorative material – an action that forms healthy tooth structure, interacts and re-mineralize the tooth

CENTRIX DENTAL  is proud to introduce ACTIVA BioACTIVE Restorative is the first dental resin that mimic the physical and chemical properties of teeth.

MTA Based Root Canal Sealer

CENTRIX DENTAL is proud to introduce:

FillApex MTA Based Root Canal Sealer

The MTA (Mineral Trioxide Aggregate) as a Root canal repair cement became available in the market in 1998 and it turned out to be a “miraculous” material in the field of Endodontics, due to the scientifically proven excellent results.

MTA as a component means

  • Perfect sealing (provided by its setting expansion),
  • sealing integrity (provided by its low solubility) and
  • The highest biological regeneration (provided by the release of calcium ions and their antimicrobial action).

Fine trioxides

  • tricalcium oxide,
  • silicate oxide,
  • bismute oxide

and other hydrophilic particles

  • tricalcium silicate and
  • tricalcium aluminate,

Is responsible for the chemical and physical properties of this aggregatethat sets in the presence of moisture

MTA-Fillapex is the first root canal sealer with MTA – based technology.

  • Biocompatible – Tissue healing with little inflammation.
  • Radiopacity – 77% greater than 3mm Aluminium scale
  • Working Time – 23min
  • Setting time – 2 Hours and 10 Minutes
  • Flow rate – 27.66mm
  • Film thickness – 39.6
  • Setting expansion of 0.088%
  • Solubility – 0.1%
  • absolute zero shrinkage
  • Past/ Past Automix syringe

MTA is a endodontic Root Canal Sealer that

  • is extremely biocompatible,
  • capable of stimulating healing and osteogenesis,
  • and is hydrophilic

This cement is different from other materials currently in use because of its biocompatibility, antibacterial properties, marginal adaptation and sealing properties, and its hydrophilic nature.
