The following clinical case by Dr. John Kanca III, DMD will feature RE-GEN, the latest innovation from Apex. In this case, Dr. Kanca utilizes several trusted, legacy products by Apex, and also incorporates RE-GEN, the first suite of bioactive restorative materials on the market to incorporate Bioglass! Bioglass provides calcium, phosphate and fluoride ions to the tooth surface. This promotes regeneration of the tooth structure and forms a zone of inhibition to prevent bacterial growth and secondary decay.
"Bioactivity has great promise for the future of restorative dentistry but to maximize its potential it must be delivered to the vulnerable site directly. Described here is a protocol for assuring that. If these materials realize their potential, they will lengthen the service life of resin composite restorations." - Dr. John Kanca III, DMD
