Ketac™ N100 Light Curing Nano-Ionomer Restorative

Ketac™ N100 Light Curing Nano-Ionomer Restorative


The world's first nano-ionomer – and a breakthrough in direct restoratives.

 

Overview Indications Science

Nanotechnology makes our glass ionomer unique. The Clicker™ Dispenser makes it easier.

Ketac™ N100 Light Curing Nano-Ionomer Restorative is the first paste/paste, resin-modified glass ionomer material based on bonded nanofiller technology. This technology adds benefits not usually associated with glass ionomers, resulting in a whole NEW category of glass ionomer restorative: the nano-ionomer.

Faster, Easier Mixing and Dispensing

We put Ketac™ N100 Light Curing Nano-Ionomer Restorative paste/paste formula in our award-winning Clicker™ Dispenser to make it faster and easier to dispense and mix the perfect dose every time – with less mess.Ketac™ N100 Light Curing Nano-Ionomer Restorative

AFMs Compare Surface Smoothness

The study below uses an Atomic Force Microscope (AFM) to compare the surface smoothness of four restorative dental materials after being polished with a diamond-impregnated polishing system.

The color bar topographically distinguishes between the high peaks and lower valleys of the four products – Ketac™ N100 Light-Curing Glass Ionomer Restorative, a composite material (Tetric EvoCeram®) and two competitive resin-modified glass ionomers (Fuji II™ LC and Fuji Filling™ LC).

Surface Comparisons

After polishing, Ketac™ N100 Light-Curing Glass Ionomer Restorative showed higher gloss and smoother surfaces than two competitive resin-modified glass ionomer restorative materials.*

The gloss reflectance or polish showed Ketac™ N100 Light-Curing Glass Ionomer Restorative having superb polish compared to Fuji II LC and Fuji Filling LC. Results illustrate improved esthetics and reduced surface roughness.*

High Fluoride Release

Ketac™ N100 Light-Curing Glass Ionomer Restorative shows high fluoride release that is rechargeable after being exposed to a topical fluoride source. Additionally, in-vitro tests showed Ketac N100 restorative’s ability to create a caries inhibition zone after acid exposure.

High Wear Resistance

Restorations made with Ketac™ N100 Light-Curing Glass Ionomer Restorative look great and perform well in abrasive environments. When tested against competitive resin-modified glass ionomers, Ketac N100 restorative shows a higher wear resistance, making it an ideal glass ionomer solution in posterior applications.
