  • Ultradent Introduces the Umbrella™ Soft Tissue Retractor

    October 7, 2020 South Jordan, Utah

    Ultradent Products, Inc., a leading developer and manufacturer of high-tech dental materials, is unveiling the latest innovation for clinicians, the Umbrella™ soft tissue retractor..


    The Umbrella retractor is designed with a priority on ease of placement and patient comfort. To use the Umbrella retractor, a clinician simply presses the two tabs together, places it in the patient’s mouth, and it pops open. This retractor helps the patient’s mouth stay open in a natural and comfortable range while still allowing for the patient to fully open or close as needed. The retractor also opens the space between the teeth, lips, and cheeks in a way that encourages saliva to accumulate away from dentition and improves access for HVE.


    Featuring an innovative tongue guard, the Umbrella retractor eases itself around soft tissues giving clinicians optimal access and the tongue a relaxing place to settle. The tongue is gently raised to the roof of the mouth, allowing for easy swallowing for the patient and easy access for the clinician.


    The Umbrella retractor is adaptable for a variety of procedures, such as Class II restorations, sealants, ortho bonding, whitening, etc.

  • Ultradent Debuts Opalescence™ PF Whitening for Aligners

    October 6, 2020 South Jordan, Utah

    Ultradent Products, Inc., a leading developer and manufacturer of high-tech dental materials, is introducing the newest member in the Opalescence™ whitening family, Opalescence™ PF Whitening for Aligners.


    Opalescence PF Whitening for Aligners is ideal for use with orthodontic aligner trays and features all of the benefits of the award-winning, original Opalescence™ PF whitening: high water content to keep teeth hydrated, neutral pH for oral health and safety, and potassium nitrate and fluoride for patient comfort. It is available in a convenient, portable 4-syringe kit so patients can carry their whitening gel with them and whiten at their convenience.


    With Opalescence tooth whitening gel, patients don’t have to worry about gel ending up where it’s not supposed to go. The PF formula is sticky and viscous—it stays where it’s placed, preventing the gel from migrating during treatment. Opalescence PF Whitening for Aligners is available in 10% concentration for day or night wear.
