Shofu launched a new Giomer Pit and Fissure Sealant (BeautiSealant)

BeautiSealant is a tooth colored, fluoride recharging, pit and fissure sealant with a self-etching primer that speeds treatment time by eliminating the need for phosphoric acid etching. Using an advanced, self-etching primer, BeautiSealant helps preserve healthy enamel that is easily demineralized with harsh acid-etchants, while still maintaining superior bond strength.   Seeping deeply into pits and fissures, our HEMA-free primer bonds equally to enamel or dentin preparing the tooth surface for a secure and long-lasting bond.  Providing flawless handling characteristics, both the viscosity and the syringe design contribute to a smooth, bubble free consistency, and reduce the common issue of overfilling.  Unlike many competitors, BeautiSealant is also highly radiopaque offering clear visibility at follow-up.  As the newest member of the GIOMER family, BeautiSealant is filled with Shofu’s proprietary Surface Pre-Reacted Glass (S-PRG) with proven cariostatic properties, acid neutralization, and plaque inhibition.
