3M ESPE unveils Filtek Bulk Fill posterior restorative
3M ESPE's new Filtek Bulk Fill posterior restorative is a one-step placement bulk fill material.
With a simple one-step placement technique up to 5 mm, Filtek Bulk Fill posterior restorative can save valuable chairtime and improve productivity by giving dentists a “one and done” option. It is uniquely formulated for stress relief, with two novel methacrylate monomers that act in combination to lower polymerization stress. This innovative technology was co-developed through collaboration with Professor Christopher Bowman from the University of Colorado with the financial support of the National Institutes of Health. The use of these monomers enables bulk placement without sacrificing strength or wear resistance. In fact, Filtek Bulk Fill posterior restorative has been shown to have better in-vitro wear resistance than other market-leading bulk fill materials.
“With the majority of restorations placed in the posterior, dentists need a material that can help them save chairtime while delivering results they can be confident in,” said Nikki McKeon, U.S. Marketing Manager for Direct Restoratives. “Filtek Bulk Fill posterior restorative gives them a fast and simple one-step placement solution.”
Dental professionals can see and learn about Filtek Bulk Fill posterior restorative at 3M ESPE’s booth at the ADA Annual Session Oct. 9-11 in San Antonio.
In the long history of Filtek restoratives, dentists have come to rely on the brand for excellent handling, and Filtek Bulk Fill posterior restorative continues that trend. It also utilizes the same true nanofiller technology of other Filtek restoratives, which enables high strength, wear resistance, surface smoothness, and gloss retention. Additionally, the material’s excellent adaptation and sculptability contribute to its ease of use and fast placement.
