Cention N: a new innovative filling material for the complete and permanent replacement of tooth structure in posterior teeth.
For years, glass ionomers and amalgams have been used successfully within their indications as filling materials. Nonetheless, there is a considerable demand for alternative filling materials. The main reasons include the low flexural strength of glass ionomer cements, the intrinsic grey colour of amalgam and the fact that amalgam contains mercury as one of its components. The new product Cention N from Ivoclar Vivadent is a mercury-free filling material which has been developed in response to the global initiative established by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) to reduce the use of mercury. Cention N is an adequate and inexpensive alternative to amalgam and glass inonomer materials in restorative dentistry.
Dr. Michael Dieter (DDS), will explain in this live dental webinar how Cention N offers tooth-coloured esthetics together with high flexural strength. The new filling material belongs to the material group of Alkasites. The patented alkaline filler increases the release of hydroxide ions to regulate the pH value during acid attacks. As a result, demineralization can be prevented. Moreover, the release of large numbers of fluoride and calcium ions forms a sound basis for the remineralization of dental enamel. The initiator system enables good chemical self-curing with unlimited curing depth.
