Wave is the ideal versatile fluoride releasing, flowable, radiopaque, light cured composite. Wave is directly injected into the cavity preparation for maximizing adaptation to the preparation. The Wave shade range consists of 14 popular shades - enamel A1, A2, A3, A3.5, B1, B2, B3, C2, C3, D3, incisal, gingival, bleach; and 0A2 dentin shade. Enamel shades can be guided by VITA classical shade guide. Gingival shade is ideal for restoring cervical lesions in elderly patients. For teeth lighter than B1, bleach shade is available.
A choice of 3 viscosities-Wave,Wave MV (Medium Viscosity),Wave HV (High Viscosity) .Wave, Wave MV and Wave HV contain specially treated nano-fillers to maximize polishability, wear resistance and strength. Ease of extrusion is improved with the addition of these specially treated nano-fillers.
Nanofilled: Wave, Wave MV and Wave HV contain specially treated nano-fi llers to maximize polishability, wear resistance and strength. Ease of extrusion is improved with the addition of these specially treated nano-fi llers.
Filler loading: Wave, Wave MV and Wave HV all have excellent wear profi les due to their high fi ller loading level
Fluoride release: Fluoride’s cariostatic effect enhances remineralization and inhibits enamel demineralization. In an aqueous environment, the fl uoride ions in Wave, Wave MV and Wave HV diffuse from the resin into the surrounding tooth. This ionic movement is caused by oral fl uid passing in and out of the resin and tooth, acting as a carrier for the fl uoride ions.
Natural fluorescence: Wave, Wave MV and Wave HV contain a fl uorescent agent that ensures perfectly natural looking teeth under ultraviolet lights. No one will know!
Radiopacity: Wave, Wave MV and Wave HV are all visible on x-rays. This allows easy identifi cation of secondary caries at the interface.
Compressive strength: Wave’s, Wave MV’s and Wave HV’s high compressive strength values expand the suitability for multiple applications.
UDMA: Wave’s UDMA resin system minimizes shrinkage and reduces post operative sensitivity.
Tip length comparison: Wave’s complet tip length is 12.2mm, 40% longer than the alternative of 8.7mm. Wave’s longer tip length allows more direct placement of the material into diffi cult to reach areas.
