GC Equia

Self-adhesive Posterior Restorative

The name EQUIA stands for "Easy - Quick - Unique - Intelligent - Aesthetic" and denotes a totally new approach to filling therapy: restorations based on glass ionomer technology have never been so aesthetic and translucent, high-performing and economical! EQUIA is the first to combine quick and easy handling with perfect physical and incomparably aesthetic properties. Recent clinical studies and evidences indicate that EQUIA can be used as a long term restorative material in stress bearing Class I and in limited sized Class II cavities! This makes EQUIA the most ideal alternative to amalgams and compomers.
