Ivoclar Vivadent is pleased to present Cention Forte, a pioneering filling material that features bioactive ion release
14 June 2021
The bioactive powder-liquid filling material is a truly innovative alternative to conventional amalgam filling materials. It is characterized by exceptional durability, high flexural strength, true-to-nature esthetics and bioactive ion release.
Ivoclar Vivadent is one of the world’s leading suppliers of integrated solutions for high-quality dental applications, offering a comprehensive range of products and systems for dentists and dental technicians. The company is pleased to present Cention Forte and Cention Primer, a mercury-free system for filling dental cavities. The new bioactive basic filling material Cention Forte is superior to its traditional amalgam counterparts in almost every respect. It is suitable for the placement of permanent Class I and II fillings.
Making People Smile: long-lasting esthetic results
High flexural strength is an important factor for long-lasting dental restorations. In this respect, Cention Forte clearly stands out from commercial glass ionomer cements and delivers exceptional performance due to its high flexural strength values of over 100 MPa in the load-bearing posterior region. Cention Forte blends in seamlessly with the natural tooth structure: The material is tooth-coloured and has a high translucency of around 11 per cent.
Highly sophisticated: release of bioactive ions as required
Cention Forte helps to prevent demineralization and promote remineralization. This special filling material contains a sophisticated ion-releasing mechanism. If the pH drops due to the growth of cariogenic bacteria, Cention Forte will release hydroxide ions as required and therefore help to restore the pH balance and prevent the demineralization of tooth structure. At the same time, the fluoride and calcium ions released from Cention Forte can assist in the remineralization of the tooth structure and the prevention of secondary caries.
A fully coordinated system: Cention Forte & Cention Primer
Ivoclar Vivadent additionally supplies a matching primer, therefore providing a fully coordinated system made up of Cention Forte and Cention Primer for the placement of basic dental fillings. The two-component Cention Primer has been specially developed for use with Cention Forte. The self-etching and self-curing primer provides the best possible foundation for filling procedures. Both products used together enable quick and efficient minimally invasive treatment.
