Studies and science

Easy cavity adaptation

Enlarge Overall Handling & Cavity Adaptation

Source: Filtek Bulk Fill Flowable Restorative Technical Product Profile, 2012

A simulated operatory allows dentists to place several experimental materials on tooth models at mouth temperature (37°C). These studies are double blind with commercially available materials frequently included.

Several simulated operatories were conducted throughout the development of Filtek™ Bulk Fill flowable restorative. Thirty-nine dentists compared Filtek Bulk Fill flowable restorative with competitive bulk fill materials by removing a cured restoration from a fabricated tooth model and evaluating the adaptation.

These dentists gave Filtek Bulk Fill Flowable Restorative excellent marks for the way it handles and adapts to the cavity – with little or no instrumentation.
