Riva Luting Plus is a resin modified, self curing, glass ionomer luting cement, designed for final cementation of metal, PFM and resin crowns, bridges, inlays and onlays plus ceramic inlays and crowns. Riva Luting Plus chemically bonds to dentin, enamel and all types of core material.
Proprietary ionglassTM filler
Riva Luting Plus utilises SDI’s proprietary ionglass™ filler developed by our glass technologists. ionglass™ is a radiopaque, high ion releasing, reactive glass used in SDI’s range of dental cements. Riva Luting Plus releases substantially higher fluoride to assist with remineralization of the natural dentition.
High fluoride release
Riva Luting Plus’s free movement of fluoride provides benefits to the tooth. Fluoride plays several significant roles in any caries - prevention program. These include the formation of fluorapatite, which is more acid resistant than hydroxyapatite. Fluorapatite is very important for tooth remineralization.
Riva Luting Plus is clinically insoluble when set. It has a very low acid erosion value. This improves the longevity of the restoration, resisting disintegration and wear caused by oral acidity. The ISO Standard dictates that a material cannot have acid erosion of more than 0.17mm.
High bond strengths
Adequate adhesion to human tooth structure is important for long term retention of restorations. Riva Luting Plus has excellent adhesion to dentine and zirconia. It is great for luting ceramic crowns and inlays.
There will be minimal loss of working time when using Riva Luting Plus. With adequate working time and a quick setting property, Riva Luting Plus will shorten chair time and ensures early resistance to mastication forces.
No Bisphenol A or derivatives
Riva Luting Plus does not contain any Bisphenol A or its derivatives. Use this product on your patients with confidence and peace of mind.
Ensuring reduced cracking and failure in flexion, Riva Luting Plus’ high flexural strength ensures longevity of the restoration.
Very low film thickness
Riva Luting Plus quickly flows into the preparation. A low film thickness allows the seating of tight fitting indirect restorations.
One simple colour
Riva Luting Plus is available in a universal light yellow shade.
