Predicta® Bioactive Desensitizer
Now You Can Provide your Patients with Fast and Powerful Relief from Dentin Hypersensitivity
New Predicta Bioactive Desensitizer is changing the way clinicians treat dentin hypersensitivity by using the elements that are naturally found in the tooth, (calcium and phosphate) and restoring them to the tooth in the form of hydroxyapatite plugs that quickly block the open tubules. Then, as calcium and phosphate ions continue to release, mineralization occurs to further seal the tubules.
Predicta Bioactive Desensitizer is also considered highly biocompatible as there are no methacrylates or soft-tissue irritating chemicals used during production.
- 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.
