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 Technology

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!

Low viscosity

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.

Proprietary ionglassTM filler technology

Riva Protect 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 Protect releases substantially higher fluoride to assist with remineralisation of the natural dentition.

Choice of setting times

The capsules are available in regular or fast setting times. The powder / liquid sets are available in regular set.

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.

Special Indications

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.


Moisture tolerant

Riva Protect can be placed in a moist or dry environment. Unlike when using resin sealants, moisture control is not an issue.

Self adhesive

Like all glass ionomer cements, Riva Protect chemically bonds to the tooth surface without the need of an adhesive.


The unique nanotechnology filler additive in Riva Protect, ACP (Amorphous Calcium Phosphate [Ca3(PO4)2] further enhances remineralisation.

Pit and fissure sealing:

Clean and isolate the tooth.

1. Apply Riva Conditioner for 10 seconds or Super Etch 37% Phosphoric Acid for 5 seconds.

2. Wash thoroughly

3. Remove excess water. Keep moist.

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


5. Apply Riva Protect to tooth surface

6. Spread the material onto tooth surface.

7. When the material has lost its surface gloss, apply a thin film of Riva Coat.

8. Light cure for 20 seconds.

9. Final finishing under water spray using standard techniques can begin approximately 3 minutes for fast set (5 minutes for regular set) after start of mixing.
