Ultradent’s Flor-Opal Varnish
February 14, 2006 South Jordan, UT
Ultradent’s new Flor-Opal Varnish is the answer for dental professionals seeking a varnish that is effective, easy to prepare and pleasant tasting for the patient. Flor-Opal Varnish’s unique mixing and delivery system provides the additional benefits of controlled delivery, uniform distribution of fluoride and easy application in difficult to reach areas.
Flor-Opal Varnish is a 5% sodium fluoride varnish suspended in a natural resin carrier. The varnish is applied to enamel and exposed dentin as a fluoride treatment. Flor-Opal Varnish’s syringe-to-syringe mixing and delivery system overcomes the main problems inherent to other fluoride varnishes, namely the separation of fluoride from the resin carrier and difficult delivery.
The lack of solubility of sodium fluoride in the resin carrier results in separation of the fluoride. This separation causes inconsistencies in the therapeutic amount of fluoride placed.1 Flor-Opal Varnish’s syringe-to-syringe chairside mixing prevents the separation and assures a uniform mixture and consistent fluoride dosage. The delivery system unique to Flor-Opal Varnish also provides a quick and easy application in a no mess unit dose.
Flor-Opal Varnish is provided with a FX Flex tip which is designed to accommodate custom bending at any angle. This feature provides easy application of varnish in difficult-to-reach areas. The fiber tip of the FX Flex functions to control and evenly distribute the varnish.
Unlike other varnishes with resin carriers, Flor-Opal Varnish is available in three great flavors: mint, grape and bubble gum.
Flor-Opal Varnish is the perfect solution for fluoride treatment. With its unique syringe-to-syringe system, Flor-Opal Varnish offers the delivery and consistency you can count on.
