G-ænial™ Universal Injectable is GC’s strongest direct restorative ever*, and now available in unitip delivery! This innovative material is highly filled and stronger than many traditional paste composites. Thanks to its highly thixotropic viscosity, it adapts very well to the cavity walls and margins and fills any void or undercut, yet is able to retain its shape during placement. It can be used for all cavity classes, as it is strong enough for posterior restorations (without capping), and displays optimal esthetics for the anterior area. Now, GC America Inc. is pleased to announce the availability of G-aenial™ Universal Injectable composite in a convenient, single-use unitip delivery system, effective October 15, 2020.
A lot of thought has been put into the handling of this unique composite. GC’s R&D developed a new technology called Full-coverage Silane Coating (FCS) to improve the coupling between the fillers and the matrix. As a result, it is easy to extrude, does not slump or stick to the tip and displays amazing wear-resistance.
Because G-ænial™ Universal Injectable has flexural strength and wear-resistance comparable to conventional paste composites, expanded indications are possible. Its high thixotropy enables it to keep its shape or to spread on the tooth surface depending on the constraint applied on the material, which is why it can be used for many applications with simplified techniques. It is indicated for all restoration classes, from Class I to Class V, and to build margins or restore occlusal surfaces, cusp by cusp. Because the material is so wear-resistant, it is well-suited for the direct restoration of worn tooth surfaces using the injection moulding technique.
On top of these handling advantages, this composite also offers great esthetic possibilities with 16 beautiful shades including opaque and enamel shades. The homogeneous dispersion of the material’s ultra-fine barium particles helps to achieve beautiful gloss retention for a long-lasting shine. Additionally, the high radiopacity of 252% allows for easy follow-up on your restorations.
G-ænial™ Universal Injectable offers you easy restorative options, without having to compromise on durability or esthetics. Now, with the availability of single-use unitips, clinicians can choose the best delivery for their patients and practice. For more information, please visit: www.gcamerica.com.
