  • Whiten with Caries Prevention using Opalescence PF

    February 24, 2006 South Jordan, UT

    Potassium Nitrate plus Fluoride found in Opalescence PF1 combined with the proven effectiveness of Ultradent’s carbamide peroxide formula offers a powerful solution for take-home tooth whitening. Clinicians now have a prescription for tooth whitening while preventing the incidence of caries. 


    Recent studies using Opalescence PF have demonstrated that Ultradent’s patented formula results in greater overall enamel health and strength. A study in the Journal of Operative Dentistry reports that the combination of Potassium Nitrate and Fluoride in Opalescence reduces the susceptibility of caries2. In the same study, it is also reported that Opalescence PF increases the mineral content of the enamel for greater tooth strength. 

    In addition to the proven benefits of caries prevention, Opalescence PF lowers tooth sensitivity. Opalescence PF and other Opalescence products are available in a variety of concentrations, formulations, flavors and kit configurations to meet all whitening needs. 

    As the leader in whitening for over 25 years, Ultradent is excited to announce another breakthrough. With caries prevention, improved overall enamel health and unsurpassed whitening, Opalescence PF has revolutionized the quality and benefits of tooth whitening.

  • 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. For more information about Flor-Opal Varnish or any of Ultradent’s other hygiene products, please call Ultradent Products, Inc. at (800)552-5512, or visit us online at www.ultradent.com.

  • New Flor-Opal and UltraEz Upper-Lower Combo Packs

    February 13, 2006 South Jordan, UT

    Ultradent is excited to introduce new upper-lower combo packs for both the Flor-Opal and UltraEZ desensitizing gel kits. Each kits contains 10 upper and 10 lower trays in the patented “Treswhite delivery” system. 


    Flor-Opal and UltraEz give dentists and patients the ability to treat sensitivity without the need to worry about impressions, models, or lab time. Inspired by Tréswhite packaging, each individual tray incorporates an outer delivery tray, as well as a pre-loaded, disposable adaptive tray to fit any smile. With the added convenience of 10 uppers and 10 lowers in every pack, the dentist can provide the exact quantity of applications for the area the patient is experiencing the most sensitivity. 

    UltraEZ is used for quick relief of acute sensitivity from toothbrush abrasion, thermal and chemical changes, tooth bleaching, and root exposure. UltraEz is the excellent alternative for post-op sensitivity associated with in-office bleaching or perio treatments which may cause sensitive root exposure. Flor-Opal is designed as a long term relief solution. The solution stays active 8-10 hours overnight or 4-6 hours during the day. FlorOpal is the perfect preventative treatment for patients with ClassV de-calcification or patients prone to caries. Both Flor-Opal and UltraEz upper-lower combo packs are available in a melon flavor for patient compliance.
