Commercial Supporter: Shofu

This article covers bioactive regenerative materials and how they may create new opportunities for restorative dentistry. These materials may offer advances that go beyond the merits of glass-ionomers. The article describes bioactive materials in relation to healing, acid neutralization, and prevention of further damage. Specific materials covered include resin-modified glass-ionomer cement, Giomers, bioactive composites, and bioactive ceramics. The article also briefly describes how to use bioactive materials in specific cases. 

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

  • Discuss how to create a regenerative environment.

  • Review problems with posterior composites and how to circumvent them. 

  • Discuss advances in dental materials that promote tissue repair.
