Doxa Dental: Ceramir Restore

A unique best-of-both-worlds solution, Ceramir Restore QuikCap combines a conventional glass ionomer with a bioceramic restorative material

From glass ionomers and composites to cements and hybrids, it can be a challenge to figure out which restorative materials will best suit your practice and patient needs. For example, glass ionomers create a reliable chemical bond to the tooth, while bioactive materials help remineralize surrounding tooth structure and prevent secondary decay.

Thanks to Doxa Dental and its unique Ceramir technology, it’s now possible to choose a material that offers both benefits.

 is a resin-free, self-curing bioceramic restorative material that offers the best of both worlds. Part conventional glass ionomer and part bioactive material, it offers low-acid solubility, strong chemical integration to the teeth, and continuous calcium and fluoride release that promotes remineralization.“We haven’t used Ceramir Restore for very long, but so far, it’s been amazing,” said cosmetic dentist Dr. Todd Snyder, a noted author and educator who practices in Laguna Niguel, CA. “It’s got incredible technology and a track record that no other product has, as far as the chemistry within it.”

A One-of-a-Kind RestorativeCeramir

Restore can be used for varying indications, such as temporary fillings, dentin replacement, core buildups, non-load-bearing Class I and II restorations, Class V restorations, and more. Its continuous calcium and fluoride release, combined with an alkaline pH, helps rebuild surrounding dentin and enamel, while the release of hydroxyl ions creates a dense and acid-resistant surface. “

The material is not a resin-based system, and its calcium aluminate technology means it does not require a bonding agent or etchant,” said Dr. Snyder. “It is truly one of a kind—there’s nothing like it.”

While in the past, Dr. Snyder would typically use a conventional glass ionomer or resin-modified material to treat his geriatric patients, he noted that Ceramir Restore provides additional benefits. “Unlike traditional materials, this is unique in how it adheres to the tooth and its ability to grow hydroxyapatite and fight off bacteria and acid attack, especially for geriatric patients,” he shared.

Ceramir Restore also is particularly helpful when filling endodontic accesses, which can be vulnerable to leakage over time. Dr. Snyder noted that this unique approach may result in less failure.“

Using Ceramir Restore is a better solution because of its ability to strengthen tooth structure. For example, even if part of the restoration breaks off, the tooth is actually stronger from being in contact with the material, as well as more impervious to acid attack,” he concluded
