Introducing 3M™ Ketac™ Universal Aplicap™ Glass Ionomer Restorative

Keep your day on track with fewer steps to a great restoration.

  • Restlessness, fidgeting… you know the signs. Patients young and old can have a hard time sitting still, and treating them feels like a race against the clock. Now, our latest glass ionomer restorative can help you shave not just precious seconds, but entire steps off your procedure – and get patients out of the chair faster.

    The newest addition to our glass ionomer family, 3M™ Ketac™ Universal Aplicap™ Glass Ionomer Restorative is a self-cure, one-step placement material designed to help you finish faster. There’s no need for conditioning, coating or light-curing steps that can slow your procedure down. The low stickiness and excellent handling characteristics of Ketac Universal Aplicap restorative make it easy to place and sculpt. Strong enough to use for a variety of indications, including restricted stress-bearing Class I and Class II restorations*, Ketac Universal Aplicap restorative is also versatile, for a wide range of indications and patient populations – paediatric, geriatric, and busy teens in between. Plus, it continuously releases fluoride for 2 years to help protect your patients over time.
