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.
