Flowable Composite Material
A flowable composite material is a composite resin that has many uses. It can be used as pit and fissure sealant material on the biting surface of teeth. It is frequently used as a liner or base under a composite restoration. A broken or thin temporary crown can be quickly repaired with flowable composite. Some dental veneers can be cemented with flowable composite. Many viscosities and shades are available. Some flowable composite materials release fluoride into the tooth. Most flowable composite materials are polymerized or hardened by dental curing lights. A self-cure flowable composite material is also available.
Nanova Biomaterials, Septodont, and Southern Dental Industries are a few of the many companies that make flowable composite materials.
