SureFil SDR Flow Leads the World in Bulk-Filling Technique
Posted on March 7, 2014
SureFil® SDR® flow by DENTSPLY Caulk has been used with great success in restorative dentistry since 2009. This bulk fill flowable base has unique characteristics: it is self-levelling for excellent cavity adaptation, it supports the bulk-filling technique in increments of up to 4 mm and it exhibits extremely low polymerization stress.
In five years, SureFil® SDR® flow has become a true global success and over 25 million applications have been sold. Excellent clinical results confirm its exceptional reliability. Prospective clinical studies1,2 conducted by experts Dr John Burgess and Dr Carlos Munoz of Alabama, USA, Prof. J.Van Dijken and Prof. U.Pallesen of Universities of Umea, Sweden and Copenhague, Denmark, found no secondary caries, no postoperative sensitivities and no failures attributable to SureFil® SDR® flow. Internationally renowned expert Professor Roland Frankenberger of the University of Marburg, Germany, rated SureFil® SDR® flow the “gold standard of the bulk-filling technique.”
This flowable composite is suitable for bulk application in increments of up to 4 millimeters at a time. The viscoelastic behavior of special monomers ensures low-stress curing, resulting in the lowest polymerization stress of all currently available flowable composites – generating up to 60 percent less stress than competitor flowable composite products! The self-leveling SureFil® SDR® flow adapts perfectly to the cavity margins, even with unfavorable cavity geometries and high C-factors.
DENTSPLY Caulkrecommends the use of SureFil® SDR® flow in combination with Palodent® Plus sectional matrix system, Prime&Bond elect® Universal Adhesive, TPH Spectra® Universal Composite and Enhance® Finishers for a predictable and reliable Class II Total Practice Solution.
