The first of its kind, SonicFill enables clinicians to perform posterior restorations with an easy-to-use, single-step technology that combines the advantages of a flowable composite with a universal composite. SonicFill reduces the time needed for placing, packing and sculpting restorations by an incredible 30%. The SonicFill system combines the expertise of two leading dental companies, comprising a KaVo handpiece that enables sonic activation of a specially designed and conveniently delivered composite from Kerr. SonicFill’s proprietary sonic activation significantly reduces the composite’s viscosity, which provides effortless placement and superior adaptation. SonicFill quickly returns to a non-slumping, non-sticky and easy-to-sculpt state. The composite’s superior strength results in low shrinkage and high depth of cure up to 5mm with no need for any other material to cap. Furthermore, a specially designed ergonomic, small nozzle Unidose tip enhances access to the cavity and precise placement of the composite.
