Predicta® Bioactive Desensitizer
Engineered to 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 it releases calcium and phosphate ions at the site of treatment to stimulate rapid hydroxyapatite crystal formation on the surface of treated dentin and in dentinal tubules. The result is fast and powerful pain relief.
- Predicta Bioactive Desensitizer provides quick & powerful pain relief
- Easy-to-use gel formulation provides controlled and accurate placement with no-mess application
- Forms a layer of mineral hydroxyapatite as well as hydroxyapatite plugs which occlude dentinal tubules

Predicta Bioactive Desensitizer is engineered to treat sensitivity related to:
- Exposed dentin
- Bleaching procedures
- Scaling or root planing
- Hypersensitivity due to gingiva recession
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.
