Glass powders provide dental fillings with outstanding stability and appearance. The new SCHOTT DentalGlass Resist demonstrates exceptional resistance to acids, which allows dental fillings to last even longer and withstand all types of acidic and alkaline attacks that are experienced during food ingestion. It is available in all SCHOTT standard grain sizes (K-type and UF-type) with refractive indices of 1.53 and 1.55.
Excellent performance in a multitude of challenging tests involving acids, alkalic solutions and water.
Resistivity is taken to a new level:
High acidic stability can be maintained over a long time period
Excellent performance proven in a multitude of challenging tests
Thanks to its high resistance to acids, SCHOTT DentalGlass Resist can be used not only in conventional dental fillings, but is also ideally suited for use in resin-reinforced glass-ionomer cements. These innovative systems normally contain an acidic formula. They cure chemically, and with the help of UV light in combination with the glass powder base. This enables them to be applied more quickly in layers at the dentist’s office. Furthermore, more fluoride can be added to the filling to prevent the development of secondary caries.
With more than 130 years of experience, SCHOTT melts all dental glasses in specially designed aggregates to produce glass of optical quality.
Depending on the desired grain size and distribution, different dry and wet grinding technologies are used to grind the raw glass into fine powder.
Finely ground, this special glass ensures that dental composites and resin-reinforced glass-ionomer cements resemble natural dental enamel very closely in terms of both their mechanical properties and their appearance. “DentalGlass Resist” comes with refractive indices of 1.53 nd and 1.55 nd and is available in all standard grain sizes. In addition, fine pigment shades allow for the color of the fillings to be adjusted to match the respective tooth just perfectly. Therefore they are nearly invisible.
