Predicta® Bioactive Desensitizer
Treat Sensitivity the Bioactive Way
The new Predicta™ Bioactive Desensitizer is changing the way clinicians treat hypersensitivity. With its next generation chemistry, the material is both highly biocompatible as well as bioactive. Meaning that the Predicta Desensitizer releases calcium and phosphate ions at the site of treatment to stimulate rapid hydroxyapatite crystal formation within microcracks in enamel as well as on the surface of treated dentin and in dentinal tubules. The result is fast and powerful pain relief.
- Fast pain-relief with advanced bioactive chemistry.
- No-mix gel formulation provides controlled and accurate placement with no-mess application.
- Bond strengths on adhesives or composites are not affected.

Predicta Bioactive Desensitizer is engineered to treat sensitivity related to:
- Exposed dentin
- Bleaching procedures
- Scaling or root planing
- Hypersensitivity due to gingiva recession
Pre-treatment with Predicta Desensitizer Gel does not adversely impact the bond strength of commercially available self-etch or total-etch adhesives or composites to dentin. Therefore, practitioners are free to use Predicta Bioactive Desensitizer Gel to treat dental hypersensitivity without having to worry about any adverse effects on the bond strengths of self-etch adhesives or composites.
Predicta Desensitizer is a no-mess easy-to-use gel. Unlike other conventional desensitizers, no mixing or other steps are required before use. It is packaged in hand-dispensable syringes and is applied precisely and efficiently to treatment areas using simple applicator brushes.
Predicta Desensitizer is not yet available in North America.
