WHAT IS RIVA STAR?

RIVA STAR IS A NEW GENERATION OF PREVENTION OF CARIES AND DESENSITIZER WHICH IMMEDIATELY REMOVES TOOTH SENSITIVITY

THE BENEFITS OF RIVA STAR

ANTIBACTERIAL ACTIVITY

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.

TWO YEARS AND BEYOND DESENSITIZING EFFECT

Clinical studies support the immediate effect of Riva Star and its long term effect of over two years.

INCREASING BOND STRENGTHS OF GICS

Pre-treating tooth surfaces with Riva Star is a great way to enhance bonding of glass ionomers to dentin.

PATENTED PROCEDURE

Unlike other silver fluoride systems, Riva Star’s two step patented procedure minimizes the risk of staining. By applying the potassium iodide solution over the silver fluoride solution, a silver iodide precipitate is formed.

NON-INVASIVE METHOD

Riva Star is essential for clinicians practising Minimally Invasive Dentistry (MID). It conditions dentine and may assist tooth preservation.
