LANCASTER, Pennsylvania--Improving on the clinical implementation of Biodentine, Septodont has announced that placing a composite on top of Biodentine in the same visit has proven to be a safe and effective procedure.A case study showing a one-year clinical follow-up, demonstrates that the functional integrity of the full restoration is maintained when the composite is bonded onto Biodentine 10-12 minutes after the start of mix. After one year, the restoration showed zero defects and the radiograph showed no secondary decay.Related information, click here.Studies conducted in the U.S. by the Dental Advisor and the University of Maryland and published at the March 2012 AADR meeting in Tampa, Fla., show that Biodentine has immediate physical properties comparable to glass ionomers. The studies indicate that a full restoration with Biodentine plus composite can be achieved in one visit.An all-in-one bioactive dentin substitute, Biodentine can be used when dentin is damaged for crown and root applications. It induces remineralization of dentin, preserves pulp vitality, and promotes pulpal healing. It replaces dentin with similar biological and mechanical properties.Studies are available upon request. Biodentine is available through a dental supply dealer.For more information, call (800) 872-8305 or visit www.septodontusa.com.To comment on this product, go to community.pennwelldentalgroup.com/.
