Parkell Predicta - Model S600 - Bioactive Core - Flowable White Shade
Predicta® Bioactive Core is a dual-cured, core build-up composite reinforced with zirconia nano-filler for added strength. It is available in high viscosity “stackable” and low viscosity “flowable” consistencies. Both viscosities are suitable for the reconstruction of broken-down or endodontically-treated teeth. They differ in their flowability when dispensed, as well as in their ability to “selflevel”. Depending on the preference of the clinician, either material may be dispensed using the included hand syringe plunger, or a 5 ml, 1:1 Cartridge Dispensing Gun, available separately. Predicta Core is bioactive and releases calcium, phosphate and fluoride ions, to stimulate mineral apatite formation and remineralization at the material-tooth interface. Such bioactivity is known in the field to equate to stronger bonds between the restoration and tooth, penetration and filling of micro-gaps, reduction in sensitivity.

How to Choose the Right Viscosity
Parkell offers Predicta® Bioactive Core in a variety of viscosity options to best fit your procedures and preferences.
Stackable (High Viscosity):
Ideally suited to minimize crown prepping time, when placing larger core build-ups where stackability results in a more centralized core, and less excess in areas that would require removal during prepping.
Flowable (Low Viscosity):
Recommended for cases where post cementation and core build-ups are done together. The lower viscosity promotes better canal adaptation and less hydrostatic resistance during seating of the post into the canal.
Both Stackable and Flowable Predicta Core versions are appropriate for, and can be used in all core build-up and post cementation situations. These guideline should be considered an aid when choosing which build-up material more closely matches your needs and preferences.
