This month, Shofu Dental Corp. celebrated the 20th anniversary of its first restorative product containing proprietary bioactive GIOMER technology. This technology features a specially engineered filler particle that allows Shofu’s restorative products to have long-term bioactive and therapeutic properties.

These properties are unavailable in other restorative materials, including anti-bacterial/anti-plaque effect, acid neutralization, fluoride release and recharge, and more, Shofu said in a press release. An independent eight-year clinical research study displayed a 100% retention rate, intact esthetics, no secondary caries, no failures, and no post-operative sensitivity, the press release read.

“After two decades, we are pleased to see the increased acceptance from the Dental community of bioactive and therapeutic restorative materials to support the oral and systemic health of patients,” said Randy Bailey, president of Shofu. “We anticipate this trend will continue.”

Bioactive GIOMER technology is available in a complete line of Beautifil products-universal composite (Beautifil II and Beautifil II LS), flowable composite (Beautifil Flow Plus, Beautifil Flow Plus X, and Fit SA), resin cement (BeautiCem), and sealant (BeautiSealant).
