Composite Creates Quick and Easy Posterior Restorations

Dentistry Today


Parkell’s HyperFIL HAp dual-cure, bulk-fill restorative composite contains nano-hydroxyapatite. It is designed to be the perfect choice for creating quick and easy bulk-fill direct and indirect posterior restorations, especially when heavy occlusal loads are anticipated. The nano-hydroxyapatite gives restorations a more aesthetic, lifelike appearance, Parkell reports. HyperFIL HAp may be quickly light cured for a depth of 4 to 6 mm, while its continued self-curing ensures that the deepest portions of the restoration will polymerize, the company says. 

Just like Original HyperFIL, HyperFIL HAp initially begins a gel stage (upon initial self-curing mode), allowing condensation with a hand instrument to create interproximal contacts. HyperFIL HAp contains 74% filler by weight and boasts a compressive strength of 355 MPa. In addition, its flexural strength is 227 MPa. Plus, its proprietary low-shrinkage resin gives it greater marginal adaptability and predictability for long-lasting, functional posterior restorations and more, according to Parkell.
