SCHOTT® DentalGlass – Radiopaque additive
The main advantages of adding SCHOTT’s radiopaque dental material to composite fillings, are improved visibility of dental caries as well as the possibility to observe the radiographic interface between tooth tissues and dental materials;
These benefits are reached through the following product characteristics of the radiopaque additive:
- Providing excellent radiopacity for liners, core material and posterior materials
- Average grain size smaller than 120 nm allows for tighter filler loading of the glass particles, greater mechanical strength and durability
- Manufacturing in accordance with SCHOTT’s highest quality standards
The raw materials are weighed and then mixed thoroughly. The glass batch is melted and homogenized. The clear glass plates are then milled to glass powders for dental applications.
The choice of melting technology depends on the composition and quality requirements of the individual glass type.
Depending on the desired grain size and distribution, different dry and wet grinding technologies are used to grind the raw glass into fine powder.
