Description

Ketac Universal Aplicap is a self-curing, self-adhering, radiopaque glass ionomer restorative material. It can be placed in bulk, does not require incremental layering, and offers a low level of stickiness sufficient for it to stick to the preparation without sticking to the instrument. It also offers continuous fluoride release for 24 months. Setting time is 3'40" from the start of mixing. With a compressive strength of 250 MPa, this restorative material can be used in restricted stress-bearing areas.

Unique Features
  • Low stickiness for easy placement.
  • Does not require a conditioner or coating after placement.
  • Extended indications for use compared to other glass ionomer materials.

Clinical Tips
  • Make sure you are ready to dispense and apply it as soon as it is mixed – it sets really quickly.
  • Leave the tooth moist.
  • Wait until near the end of the setting time to do any molding.
  • Use a slightly wet instrument to initially adapt the material to the margins.
  • Use a wet cotton tip applicator or pellet to adapt and smooth out the surface.
  • It makes a great protective layer for lost tooth structure placed when prepping for a crown. Trim carefully if using in a core, to avoid gouging the set material.

Consultants’ Comments
  •  “Easy to dispense, apply and sculpt.”
  •  “It was fast setting and did not slump.”
  •  “Easy to pack, especially under crown margins where there is recurrent decay.”
  •  “It is convenient to have a fast set option when working on children.”
  •  “The simple workflow improves efficiency.”
  •  “I like the fluoride release. Great for geriatric patients.”
  •  “I would like a less opaque shade as well, and a greater range of shades.”
  •  “The volume in the capsule is low.”
