RE-GEN™ – The Next Generation of Bioactive Materials
Apex Dental Materials introduces RE-GEN, a suite of bioactive materials comprised of a Flowable Composite, Bulk Fill & Resin Cement, Pit & Fissure Sealant and the world’s first ever Bioactive Universal and Self-Etch Adhesives.
By employing Bioglass as an active ingredient, RE-GEN resolves all the uncertainty surrounding previous generations of bioactive materials. Bioglass is backed by 50+ years of medical use, and is supported by scientific research, along with countless clinical studies. Bioglass has been proven to form a hydroxyapatite-like surface layer after being in contact with tooth and biological fluids, thus promoting a regenerative process and a stable, long-term restoration.
The unique blend of ingredients in the RE-GEN family of products provides a restoration that is osteogenic, antimicrobial, biocompatible, and BPA Free.
The cornerstones of the RE-GEN suite are the world’s first bioactive adhesives. Current bioactive materials are limited in their ability to provide the functional ions to the compromised tooth because the tooth has been sealed with an adhesive. RE-GEN solves this problem by providing the regenerative ions directly at the tooth surface. RE-GEN is not a barrier to bioactivity, but rather a powerful agent that deposits biologically charged ions directly onto the tooth – exactly where they are needed in order to promote regeneration of tooth structure.
