Glass ionomer luting cement with fabulous fluoride release

Riva Luting is a conventional, self curing, glass ionomer luting cement designed for final cementation of metal based restorations. It chemically bonds to metal substrates and the tooth.

Proprietary ionglassTM filler technology

Riva Luting utilises SDI’s proprietary ionglass™ filler developed by our glass technologists. ionglass™ is a radiopaque, high ion releasing, reactive glass used in SDI’s range of dental cements. Riva Luting releases substantially higher fluoride to assist with remineralization of the natural dentition.

Proven antimicrobial effect

Compared to other materials such as fluoride releasing resin cements, Riva Luting has proven antimicrobial activity against three cariogenic bacteria: Streptococcus mutans, Streptococcus sobrinus and Lactobacillus(2).

One simple colour

Riva Luting is available in a universal light yellow shade.

High flexural strength

High flexural strength enhances longevity of a glass ionomer luting cement by withstanding mastication forces. Riva Luting’s high flexural strength increases its durability in the oral environment and long term ability to retain indirect restorations.

High fluoride release

Riva Luting’s free movement of fluoride provides benefits to the tooth. Fluoride plays several significant roles in any caries – prevention program. These include the formation of fluorapatite, which is more acid resistant than hydroxyapatite. Fluorapatite is very important for tooth remineralization.

Low solubility

Riva Luting has low solubility in the oral environment. This increases the material’s ability to resist disintegration and wear caused by oral acidity.

Setting times

There will be minimal loss of working time when using Riva Luting. With adequate working time and a quick setting property, Riva Luting will shorten chair time and ensures early resistance.

Very low film thickness

Riva Luting quickly flows into the preparation. A low film thickness allows the seating of tight fitting indirect restorations.

For cementation of crown:

1. Isolate and prepare tooth core.

2. Wash internal surface of restoration.

3. Thoroughly dry restoration.

4. Mix the capsule in an amalgamator or mix the powder / liquid combination on a mixing pad


5. Apply approximately 1mm of cement to the bonding surface.

6. Seat restoration within 30 seconds.

7. Remove excess cement at the first formation of the gel stage.

8. Maintain isolation until set is verified.
