Material for dental restoration with good handling properties.
Conventional restorative materials are based mainly on organic resins such as BisGMA or UDMA and inorganic fillers like quartz or glass. Although these conventional restorative materials have proven to be highly effective at preserving teeth, they have a limited life-span and ultimately require replacement. Ineffective bonding with the inorganic filler and organic matrix is one of the main causes for polymerization shrinkage. Most common reasons for secondary caries are polymerisation shrinkage of dental composites and biofilm (plaque) formation on the margin of the tooth and restoration. Moreover, a significant percentage of these restored teeth ultimately undergo pulpal necrosis, requiring either tooth extraction or endodontic treatment and prosthetic build up. Therefore, development of novel techniques to regenerate, as opposed to repairing, lost tooth structure would have significant benefits.
The product is a visible light cure non-radiopaque dental restorative composite.It is used for the development of a non-radiopaque bioactive composite with low polymerization shrinkage and better physico-mechanical properties. It can be applied all types dental restorations due to its good handling properties .This products contain no Bisphenol A, no Bis-GMA, no BPA derivatives, All the materials can be polymerized using visible light The shelf life period of the composite has evaluated and found to be more than three years.
Completed all the physico mechanical, invitro and invivo biocompatibility evaluation including Pulp and Dentin test in Dog model and histopathology evaluations as per the international standard. Ready for technology transfer – industry can associate to take forward the clinical trial and further commercialization.
