The Pride Institute's "Best of Class" Technology Awards represent an initiative to promote innovation in new and existing dental technology companies, providing a means through which the organization can educate those in the dental profession to use technology more effectively. 

The Pride Institute's "Best of Class" Technology Awards represent an initiative to promote innovation in new and existing dental technology companies, providing a means through which the organization can educate those in the dental profession to use technology more effectively. 

This year's honorees span a wide range of categories and uses, from the business-oriented to the clinical, such as the SonicFill composite system from Kerr.

SonicFill is a sonic-activated, single-step bulk fill composite system that is comprised of a specially designed handpiece and a new composite material in unidose delivery. The resin is a highly filled proprietary resin with special modifiers that react to sonic energy. As sonic energy is applied through the handpiece, the modifiers cause the composite viscosity to drop up to 87%, increasing the flowability. This allows easy placement and precise adaptation to the cavity walls. Once the sonic energy is stopped the composite returns to a more firm non-slumping state that will allow the clinician to easily carve, contour and finish the restoration.

Because of SonicFill’s ultra-efficient curing characteristics, clinicians can place up to a 5 mm increment without the need for a final capping layer. This single step bulk fill material takes only a 20 second cure for the 5 mm placement.
