Ivoclar Vivadent

Fluor Protector is a clear protective varnish containing fluoride. Unlike its 5% sodium fluoride counterparts, this 0.1% difluorisilane’s liquid consistency allows placement of a thin and invisible coating, leaving no sticky feeling on the patient’s teeth.

Vanish 5% Sodium Fluoride White Varnish with tricalcium phosphate is a proprietary formula that contains fluoride, calcium, and phosphate—components naturally found in saliva. It delivers targeted and sustained fluoride and calcium release. After application, Vanish white varnish flows across tooth surfaces and comes in contact with saliva, releasing fluoride and calcium throughout the life of the varnish. It is easy to apply and aids in the relief of hypersensitivity. For more information, call (800) 634-2249 or visit 3mespe.com/preventivecare.
