DMG Constic - Self Etch, Self Adhesive Flowable Composite
Subcribe to back in stock notification
Constic is a self-etching, self-adhesive, radiopaque, flowable composite which is light cured.
The composite is immediately ready for use because the preparatory steps of etching, priming and bonding are contained in Constic.
Self-adhesion: sophisticated science, simple handling.
Reliable adhesion without other materials: no easy task for a composite. Typically, this requires special bonding molecules, like those in Constic. Based on successful bonding systems, molecules were developed that can etch enamel and dentine, bond with them like a glass ionomer, and also co-polymerize with the composite. In order to make bonding easier for the molecules, it helps to massage in Constic thoroughly. The self-neutralizing acid groups then react with the moist enamel and dentine, forming a durable tooth-like chemical bond.
The new 3-in-1 flow combines etching gel, bonding agent and flowable composite in one single product. You thus save treatment steps – and thereby benefit from increased safety during application.
Secure bonding, scientifically proven.
The shear bond strengths measured in a study by C. A. Munoz-Viveros at the State University of New York at Buffalo* demonstrate very good results for Constic on enamel and dentine. The bond strength values for Constic exceed those of the other self-etching, self-adhesive flowable composites tested in the study.
Constic reaches very good results both on enamel and dentine compared to regular flowables bonded with an adhesive. There are no significant differences in this respect.
Noteworthy: Constic achieves roughly the same good adhesion values on enamel and dentine. These are clearly different in the self-adhesive competitors.
Simple application, great impact.
Etching, bonding, filling in one step. This saves time and money – and minimizes potential sources of mistakes. Furthermore, self-etching, self-adhesive Constic ensures a reduction of postoperative sensitivities. The cone-shaped brush, DMG’s »Clip-on brush«, makes even deep fissures easier to reach.

Minor Restoration of Class I, III and V and Underfilling of Class I and II
1. Determine tooth color and select the appropriate shade
2. Prepare the cavity in accordance with the general rules of Adhesive procedures. Bevel the enamel edges if necessary. Protect the pulp in deep cavities with appropriate preparations
3. Clean the tooth, remove the cleaning residue with water spray
4. Dry the tooth with water and oil-free air in order to prevent the overdrying of dentine. A moist layer must remain on the surface of the tooth.
5. Apply the material onto the cavity surface with the Luer Lock Tip by pressing the syringe and massage a thin layer (~0.5mm) into the entire surface of the cavity wall for 25 seconds using the brush.
6. Remove excess if necessary
7. Light Cure for 20s
8. Layer the material as follows:
a. Small Restorations of class I, III and V: Use the material to build up layers of max 2mm of layer thickness and cure each layer for 20s.
b. Underfillings of Class I and II: Use the material to build up 1 layer with a maximum of 1mm Layer thickness and light cure for 20s.
9. Remove excess, contour the filling surface, finish as required
10. Use polishing paste to polish the filling surface and neighboring surfaces. Use a polishing cup of a polishing disc for polishing work.
Store at cool and dry place
1. Saves chair side time
2. Faster, easier and more efficient treatment process
3. Radiopacity and tooth-like fluorescence
4. Prevents postoperative sensitivities
5. Minimizes potential sources of mistakes
