Solve My Problem: New SDF brings strength with less stains, aerosols

Dental Products Report, Dental Products Report July 2020, Volume 54, Issue 7

SDI’s Riva Star Silver Diamine Fluoride Desensitizer minimizes the risk of staining, reduces aerosols, and improves GIC bond strengths.

The Problem

Silver Diamine Fluoride systems typically are known to produce significant staining

Additionally, alternative treatment protocols require aerosol application and the use of air/water syringes.

The Solution

Riva Star

  • 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
  • Designed to deliver increasing bond strengths of glass ionomer cements (GIC), pre-treating tooth surfaces with this is said to enhance bonding of glass ionomers to dentin
  • The non-aerosol application option for silver diamine fluoride (SDF) is increasingly desirable during the COVID-19 pandemic. Using SDF is advantageous for clinical situations where the practitioner wants or needs to avoid using the air/water syringe
  • Applying SDF without aerosols also means less spread of potentially risky aerosol droplets
  • SDF is a topical antimicrobial and remineralizing treatment for caries and hypersensitivity
  • Riva Star can be a key component in delivering minimally invasive treatments
  • Formulated to provide immediate dentinal hypersensitivity relief
