RIVA STAR IS A NEW GENERATION DESENSITIZER WHICH IMMEDIATELY REMOVES TOOTH SENSITIVITY
NEXT GENERATION SDF
SDF +KI = SMART DESENSITIZING AGENT
- Clinically tested & proven for decades
- Aesthetically pleasing for the patient – reduced staining
- Immediate dentinal hypersensitivity relief for adults over the age of 21
- Non-invasive – suitable for MID
- Patented Technology
Riva Star – Two years and beyond desensitizing effect
Clinical studies support the immediate effect of Riva Star and its long term effect of over two years.
Riva Star – Increasing bond strengths of GICs
Pre-treating tooth surfaces with Riva Star is a great way to enhance bonding of glass ionomers to dentin.
Riva Star – Patented procedure
Unlike other silver fluoride systems, Riva Star’s two step patented procedure minimizes the risk of staining. By applying the potassium iodide solution over the silver fluoride solution, a silver iodide precipitate is formed.
