- Technical Details
Clearfil™ AP-X is a light-curing, radiopaque universal composite resin that combines accurate colour matching, excellent polishing qualities, and outstanding physical features. Thanks to these properties, it is suitable for both anterior and posterior tooth restorations. Its composition ensures optimum viscosity so that it can easily be polished and layering is simple. Other features and benefits include:
- Superior physical properties
- High resistance and long-lastingness
- High polishability
- Accurate colour matching
- Easy handling
- Does not stick to instruments
- Available in syringes and compules
- Clinically proven since 1993
Indications for Use
- Class I, II, V restorations of posterior teeth
- Class III, IV, V restorations of anterior teeth
- Cervical cavities or defects involving root surfaces
Five Convincing Advantages of Clearfil AP-X
High Wear Resistance: Clearfil AP-X is a micro-hybrid composite filled with fine barium glass particles in high density by 86 wt% (70 vol%). This is one of the reasons for the unusually high wear and fracture resistance provided by Clearfil AP-X. A truly convincing value for durable posterior restorations.
Excellent Polishability: The high number of fine filler particles (smallest 0.04 μm) provides excellent polishability enabling esthetic results perfectly suited for challenging anterior restorations.
Low Polymerization Shrinkage: The high-density filler content is one of the reasons for a very low polymerization shrinkage of 1.9%. This reduces stress forces against cavity walls dramatically and consequently, the risk of postoperative sensitivities or secondary caries due to marginal leakage is limited.
Visible Radiopacity: The absence of marginal gaps can easily be seen as Clearfil AP-X offers excellent radiopacity for x-ray evaluations due to its high percentage of barium glass particles.
Easy Handling: With a special non-sticky formula, Clearfil AP-X does not stick to instruments or contact matrices. On the one hand, the material offers convenient adaptation towards additional composite layers and is therefore optimally suited for anterior restorations. On the other hand, the consistency of Clearfil AP-X is more than adequate to allow precise shaping in posterior areas. Convenient compules improve the application process and ensure hygienic treatment.
