As the first all-in-one bioactive dentin substitute, Biodentine™ can be used whenever dentin is damaged, both for crown and root applications. It helps the remineralisation of dentin, preserves the pulp vitality and promotes pulp healing. It fully replaces dentin with similar biological and mechanical properties.
Improving on the clinical implementation of Biodentine™, Septodont announces that bonding the composite onto Biodentine™ in the same visit is a proven safe and effective procedure.
A case study showing a 1-year clinical follow-up, demonstrates that the functional integrity of the full restoration is maintained when the composite is bonded onto Biodentine™ 12 min after the start of mix. After 1 year, the restoration showed zero defects and the radiograph showed no secondary caries.
A recent research, conducted in the USA by the Dental Advisor and the University of Maryland and published as posters at the March 2012 AADR meeting in Tampa, Florida, proved that Biodentine™ has immediate physical properties comparable to Glass-Ionomers. So, the Biodentine™ + Composite full restoration can be achieved in one single visit.
