SDF – Silver Iodide Fluoride , Biofilm + sensitivity eliminator
A STAR product containing three powerful components:
Together, these have a powerful effect to provide instantaneous relief to hypersensitivity.
Increasing bond strengths of GICs
Pre-treating tooth surfaces with Riva Star is a great way to enhance bonding of glass ionomers to dentine
Riva Star is essential for clinicians practicing Minimally Invasive Dentistry (MID)1-3,5. It conditions dentine and may assist tooth preservation.
Two years and beyond desensitizing effect
Clinical studies support the immediate effect of Riva Star and its long term effect of over two years
Riva Star was designed by three renowned Australian clinicians, bringing together their clinical knowledge and experience of using these three exceptional components, and combining them into one STAR product – Riva Star!
Unlike other silver fluoride systems, Riva Star’s two step patented procedure minimises the risk of staining. By applying the potassium iodide solution over the silver fluoride, a silver iodide creamy white precipitate is formed and washed off.
- Desensitizing cervical tooth hypersensitivity.
- Cavity cleansing
Riva Star is an effective biofilm inhibitor. This is supported by study results from Otago University (NZ), that Riva Star has a higher inhibition zone against four bacterial species compared to sodium hypochlorite.
