The term GIOMER refers to any product containing a proprietary filler particle, engineered by Shofu Dental, which can release and recharge six different ions: Fluoride, Strontium, Sodium, Aluminum, Silicate, and Borate. Together, these ions have been clinically proven to inhibit plaque, neutralize acid, and eliminate secondary decay; combining bioactive and therapeutic benefits not available in competitive products.
Shofu Dental created the GIOMER filler particle over 20 years ago with the mission of offering products that provide a bioactive and therapeutic alternative to the inert restorative materials available then – and now. It is part of our mission at Shofu Dental to “create healthy and beautiful smiles all over the world.”
Bioactive Giomer Technology Conventional Composites
Almost immediately upon its discovery, both Researchers and Clinicians have found the promise of the bioactive and therapeutic properties of GIOMER Technology intriguing enough to warrant study. Shofu Dental regularly sponsors research and clinical studies to validate the efficacy of GIOMER Technology. Still, we are gratified by the number of independent research studies we regularly receive that also validates our claims.
GIOMER Technology restoratives offer picture-perfect aesthetics. The nano-hybrid-sized particles provide the high level of polishability dentists have come to expect in today’s premium restorative materials. Our unique filler structure gives GIOMER restoratives the light transmission and diffusion properties of both dentin and enamel to blend well with surrounding dentition without the need for complex layering techniques required by many competitors.
