SDI North America's Riva Self Cure glass ionomer restorative material is ideal for minimally invasive dentistry, bulk fill and radiopacity.
When dentin is missing, clinicians can use Riva Self Cure to replace it, as it virtually mimics dentin. No adhesive is required, and sensitivity is non-existent. Like dentin, Riva Self Cure has a very high compressive strength, ensuring it will withstand long term mastication forces.
Riva Self Cure is a bioactive material which prevents caries from occurring and can be used as a restorative or a base under permanent restorations. Riva Self Cure does not contain resin, eliminating the problem of volumetric shrinkage after curing.
