Pulp capping

  • Product may cause skin irritations to some people. In such cases, discontinue use and seek medical attention.


Ideal for minimally invasive dentistry

  • Riva Self Cure is the ideal restorative material for use in minimally invasive dentistry (MID) as it is a bioactive material which prevents caries from occurring. Natural tooth structure is preserved, so large cavities and undercuts are not necessary.

Great marginal adaptation

  • Riva Self Cure is the answer to long term microleakage prevention. Use it as a restorative or a base under permanent restorations. “....self-cured glass ionomer bases were more effective in reducing microleakage in both the occlusal and proximal cavo surfaces than a fl owable resin.

Bioactive proprietary technology

  • Riva Self Cure utilizes SDI’s proprietary ionglass™ fi ller developed by our glass technologists. Ionglass™ is a radiopaque, high ion releasing, bioactive glass used in SDI’s range of glass ionomer products. Riva Self Cure releases substantially higher fl uoride to assist with remineralization of the natural dentition

Bulk fill to save time

  • Riva Self Cure can be bulk fi lled to minimize chairside time.

The strongest dentin replacement

  • When dentin is missing, use Riva Self Cure to replace it. It is the best dental material available today that virtually mimics dentin. No adhesive is required, and sensitivity is nonexistent. Like dentin, Riva Self Cure has a very high compressive strength, ensuring it will withstand long term mastication forces.

BPA and HEMA Free

  • Riva Self Cure does not contain Bisphenol A (including it’s derivatives) or HEMA. Use this product on your patients with confi dence and peace of mind

Choice of viscosities

  • Riva Self Cure easily extrudes into the cavity, but for an exceptional packable, high viscosity material, use Riva Self Cure HV. You have a choice

Surface hardness

  • The greater the surface hardness, the greater the resistance to abrasive wear. Riva Self Cure is a dynamic glass ionomer restorative material that can withstand high penetration of the surface.

Low acid erosion

  • Riva Self Cure has a very low acid erosion value. This improves the longevity of the restoration, resisting disintegration and wear caused by oral acidity. The ISO Standard dictates that a material cannot have acid erosion of more than 0.17mm.


  • Compressive Strength : 270MPa
