VLC Bioactive Composite
By Sree Chitra Tirunal Institute for Medical Sciences & Technology(SCTIMST)
Bioactive dental materials stimulate apatite formation that fills gaps, seals margins against microleakage, and helps rebuild teeth. Dentactive seals margins against micro leakage, secondary caries, and failure, responds to pH cycles and plays an active role in maintaining oral health with release and recharge of significant amounts of calcium, and phosphate. These mineral components stimulate formation of a protective/connective apatite layer and a natural bonded-seal at the material-tooth interface. Remarkable advantagesare non-sticky nature, good marginal adaptation, less shrinkage than conventional composites, very good dentine and enamel bonding and high shade matching and colour stability
Product Design and Silent Features
The product is bioactive, radiopaque composite with low polymerization shrinkage and better physic-mechanical properties for restorative applications. The novel bioactive visible light cured dental composites were based on novel bioactive inorganic-organic hybrid resins with polymerizable methacrylate groups synthesized through modified sol-gel method. Indian Patent filed: Application Number 4996/CHE/2014.
Development Stage
Industry can associate to take forward the clinical trial and further commercialization.
