The ultimate glass ionomer surface protector, sealant and liner
Great protector for partially erupted teeth
Riva Protect immediately guards the pits, fissures and tooth surfaces of partially erupted teeth from caries development. These teeth are the most vulnerable and moisture control can be difficult.
Perfect for caries-challenged patients.
Riva Protect is the ideal product for caries-challenged patients – it adheres directly to the tooth, strengthens the underlying tooth structure and effectively seals the tooth from harmful bacteria and acids.
ACP (amorphous calcium phosphate)is a nanoparticle filler additive that can be easily absorbed by the tooth structure. ACP supercharges the natural remineralisation effects of glass ionomer cements. ACP is made from the same materials as natural tooth enamel, but is in a form that makes it easy to be absorbed. ACP adds extra calcium and phosphate to the tooth interface, which combines with fluoride from the glass in Riva Protect to reform the natural tooth structure!
The ideal low viscosity allows Riva Protect to quickly flow over surfaces and penetrate deeply into pits and fissures. A recognised cause of pit and fissure sealant failure is an inability to seal. The tight seal and self adhesive nature of Riva Protect optimises retention and eliminates the space required for bacteria to grow.
Pink or White
Riva Protect is available in pink or white shades. Some clinicians prefer a white shade for a more natural looking restoration. Others prefer to be able to identify the material easily after the restoration has been placed.
With its superb fluoride releasing and remineralisation abilities, Riva Protect is fabulous for use as a liner. For orthodontists, this is a great material for bite openings.
