NEXT GENERATION SDF SYSTEM
SDI continues to innovate SDF solutions by releasing Riva Star Aqua, a next generation water-based silver fluoride solution that is also effective in arresting carious lesions as an SDF solution, with additional patient benefits.
Similar to Riva Star (SDF), Riva Star Aqua (AgF) is also a non-invasive 2 step patented system used to desensitise tooth pain in a few drops. Riva Star Aqua is an aqueous silver fluoride solution without the Ammonia base.
Clinical Match to SDF
Clinical studies have shown that Riva Star Aqua’s 38% Silver Fluoride (SF) is also an effective desensitiser as Riva Star SDF solution containing 38% Silver Fluoride.1
Just like Riva Star, Riva Star Aqua includes a Potassium Iodide (KI) Step 2 solution, for significantly reducing unsightly black stains.
The ammonia free solution tastes and smells better, leading to happier, more compliant patients.
