1st July marks the start of phasing out dental amalgam in the UK. Focused initially on pregnant female and child patients, within 6 months the law will continue to extend restrictions on amalgam use until a complete ban is in place.  

The ACTIVA BioACTIVE range is without exception the perfect amalgam substitute, to help ensure your practice remains at the cutting edge of the dental profession. 

Described as “truly impressive”, ACTIVA BioACTIVE-RESTORATIVE™ is suitable for all classes of restorations. The range includes ACTIVA KIDS specifically for paediatric dentistry and is already highly acclaimed by leading USA paediatric dentists who have successfully used this material for over 10 years.

ACTIVA has the strength, aesthetics and physical properties of composites and delivers more fluoride release than glass ionomers combining the best attributes of both materials without compromising either one.  It releases and recharges with calcium, phosphate and fluoride ions, delivering long-term benefits and better oral health care for patients. The full range is contains no BPA, no Bis-GMA and no BPA-derivatives.
