Next month Pulpdent will be launching ACTIVA Presto, the first light cure composite designed to mimic the properties of natural teeth. Using the tooth as the standard, Pulpdent has developed a material that is esthetic, high strength, moisture-friendly and contains no Bis-GMA, no Bisphenol A and no BPA derivatives.

The magic of ACTIVA Presto is in the resin, which is hydrophilic and facilitates the diffusion of bioavailable calcium, phosphate and fluoride ions. “It’s acting just like a tooth,” explains Larry Clark, Director of Clinical Affairs at Pulpdent, “it’s giving off and taking back ions.” This unique chemistry penetrates and integrates with tooth structure for margin-free adaptation. The material also contains a patented rubberized-resin that absorbs stress and resists wear, fracture, and chipping, even in thin areas on bevel margins.
ACTIVA Presto is a stackable composite that holds its shape and will not slump. This versatile material is indicated for all classes of cavities and comes in a variety of shades, including cervical shades A4 and A6, which are ideal for older patients. ACTIVA Presto is highly radiopaque (250%) and comes in easy to use 1.2 mL syringes.
ACTIVA Presto will be available to purchase in the United States starting in January 2020. The magic is coming!
