Self-adhesion: sophisticated science, simple handling.
Reliable adhesion without other materials: No easy task for a composite. Typically, this requires special bonding molecules, like those in Constic. Based on successful bonding systems, molecules were developed that can etch enamel and dentin, bond with them like a glass ionomer, and also co-polymerize with the composite. In order to make bonding easier for the molecules, it helps to massage in Constic thoroughly. The self-neutralizing acid groups then react with the moist enamel and dentin, forming a durable tooth-like chemical bond.
Please note: In order to prevent unwanted activation of Constic, it must remain refrigerated at all times when not in use.
Secure bonding, scientifically proven.
The shear bond strengths measured in a study by C. A. Munoz-Viveros at the State University of New York at Buffalo* demonstrate great results for Constic on enamel and dentin. The bond strength values for Constic exceed those of the other self-etching, self-adhesive flowable composites tested in the study.
Unlike other self-adhesive composites in the marketplace, Constic produces a robust bond strength that is virtually indistinguishable on enamel and dentin alike. It’s the one composite for all your procedures.
Simple application, great impact.
By combining etching, bonding and filling into a single step, Constic simplifies procedures and eliminates potential sources of mistakes. Not only that, but the proprietary formulation reduces post-operative sensitivities. And with DMG’s unique cone shaped brushes, you can access even the deepest fissures with the utmost in confidence and consistency.
