Wave is the ideal versatile fluoride releasing, flowable, radiopaque, light cured composite. Wave is directly injected into the cavity preparation for maximizing adaptation to the preparation. The Wave shade range consists of 14 popular shades - enamel A1, A2, A3, A3.5, B1, B2, B3, C2, C3, D3, incisal, gingival, bleach; and 0A2 dentin shade. Enamel shades can be guided by VITA classical shade guide. Gingival shade is ideal for restoring cervical lesions in elderly patients. For teeth lighter than B1, bleach shade is available.
A choice of 3 viscosities-Wave,Wave MV (Medium Viscosity),Wave HV (High Viscosity) .Wave, Wave MV and Wave HV contain specially treated nano-fillers to maximize polishability, wear resistance and strength. Ease of extrusion is improved with the addition of these specially treated nano-fillers.
35% wt (52 Vol%) multifunctional methacrylic ester
65% wt (41 Vol%) (0.02 - 10 micron) inorganic filler
COMPOSITION WAVE MV:
40% wt (61 Vol%) multifunctional methacrylic ester
60% wt (39 Vol%) (0.02 - 10 micron) inorganic filler
COMPOSITION WAVE HV:

66% wt (44 Vol%) (0.02 - 10 micron) inorganic filler
Wave, Wave MV and Wave HV contain specially treated nano-fi llers to maximize polishability, wear resistance and strength. Ease of extrusion is improved with the addition of these specially treated nano-fi llers.
Wave, Wave MV and Wave HV all have excellent wear profi les due to their high fi ller loading level:
Fluoride’s cariostatic effect enhances remineralization and inhibits enamel demineralization. In an aqueous environment, the fl uoride ions in Wave, Wave MV and Wave HV diffuse from the resin into the surrounding tooth. This ionic movement is caused by oral fl uid passing in and out of the resin and tooth, acting as a carrier for the fl uoride ions.
Wave, Wave MV and Wave HV contain a fl uorescent agent that ensures perfectly natural looking teeth under ultraviolet lights. No one will know!
Wave, Wave MV and Wave HV are all visible on x-rays. This allows easy identifi cation of secondary caries at the interface.
Wave’s, Wave MV’s and Wave HV’s high compressive strength values expand the suitability for multiple applications.
Wave’s UDMA resin system minimizes shrinkage and reduces post operative sensitivity.
Tip length comparison
Wave’s complet tip length is 12.2mm, 40% longer than the alternative of 8.7mm. Wave’s longer tip length allows more direct placement of the material into diffi cult to reach areas.
Clean and Isolate tooth. A conservative cavity should be prepared, employing standard techniques and instruments, to form a slightly rounded internal form. Margins of the cavity preparation should end in sound and supported enamel with no bevels in stress bearing locations. If bevelling is desired in a low stress location it should extend no further than 1mm at an angle of no greater than 45°. Pre-wedging is also recommended to ensure that the restored tooth will have an adequate contact point. Prophy all surfaces to be etched including surfaces adjacent to the cavity with an oil free non-fluoride containing paste or a slurry of pumice and water. Rinse thoroughly with water.
Shade selection should be made with a just cleaned and moist tooth.
NOTE: Do not use uncured paste for color matching as there is a slight color change upon curing.
Isolation techniques must be used to prevent contamination. Rubber dam is the preferred mode of isolation.
For deep cavities, use a calcium hydroxide liner and appropriate glass ionomer cement liner to protect deep cavity reparations in close proximity to the pulp.
1. Acid Etching
Thoroughly dry the surface to be etched with dry, oil-free air. Etch tooth surface with Super Etch 37% phosphoric acid.
(a) Enamel only Etch surface for at least 20 seconds
(b) Dentin and enamel Using the “total etch” technique etch the surface including any glass ionomer for at least 20 seconds. Enamel subjected to fluoridation should be etched for 90 to 120 seconds. Etching Precautions: Ensure that the dispensing tip hub is firmly attached to the syringe by twisting the hub securely onto the syringe. Avoid acid contact with oral tissues, eyes and skin. If accidental contact occurs wash thoroughly with water. In the case of eye contact, wash eye for 15 minutes and seek medical attention. Use matrix strips to protect adjacent tooth surfaces during etching. On first usage or after prolonged storage, extrude a small amount onto a mixing pad for familiarity with the etchant’s viscosity and rate of extrusion
2. Wash thoroughly with water
3. Remove excess water. Keep moist. Avoid contamination e.g. saliva
4. Apply Stae dentin/enamel adhesive to saturate all internal surfaces, or bonding agent according to manufacturer’s instructions
5. Blow gently with dry, oil-free air for 2 seconds to evaporate solvent. Leave surface glossy
6. Light cure for 20 seconds (460-480nm wavelength, high power LED curing light)
7. Directly inject Wave in increments of 2mm or less in: 7.1 Class V restorations, 7.2 Tunnel preparations, 7.3 Pit and fissures sealants, 7.4 Minimal Class I, Class II, Class III and Class IV restorations. Or other indication as required.
CAUTION: ensure that the dispensing tip is firmly attached to the syringe by twisting the tip hub securely onto the syringe.
