Mode of Action

CURODONT REPAIR FLUORIDE PLUS acts where it is needed. Over the course of weeks, the unique CUROLOX® formulation and the application procedure help minerals, like fluoride and calcium, to penetrate the enamel surface into the white spots and to re-mineralize and re-harden the affected enamel over the next few weeks.

1 – Natural caries protection

In a healthy oral environment, saliva facilitates constant remineralisation. Saliva is rich in calcium and phosphate. Fluoride actively supports this natural remineralization process and strengthens enamel.

2 – Increased risk of caries

The constant acid challenge from bacteria inhibits the natural remineralization cycle and tooth minerals are lost. If demineralization cannot be stopped, enamel becomes porous (i.e. white spots). Targeted anti-caries measures are needed.

3 – CURODONT REPAIR FLUORIDE PLUS

Applied directly onto the cleaned surface of the white spot CURODONT REPAIR FLUORIDE PLUS acts where it is needed. Over the course of weeks, the unique CUROLOX® formulation and the application procedure help minerals, like fluoride and calcium, to penetrate the enamel surface into the white spots and to re-mineralize and re-harden the affected enamel over the next few weeks.

Application

The non-invasive therapy with CURODONT REPAIR FLUORIDE PLUS is as safe as its application is easy: It builds on the dental care at home and a functioning plaque-biofilm-management. In the everyday practice, the therapy can be incorporated optimally in the procedure of the professional dental cleaning treatment.

1 – Professional tooth cleaning

2 – Removal of the pellicle using 2% sodium hypochlorite 3% (20 sec)

3 – Removal of inorganic deposits using 35% phosphoric acid (20 sec.), than rinse tooth surface with water and dry.

4 – Application of CURODONT REPAIR FLUORIDE PLUS. The solution disperses around the contact point and diffuses deep into the lesion.

FAQ

Why should white spot be treated?

An white spot that is not or insufficiently treated, leads in the vast majority of cases to a cavity in the tooth that must be treated invasively. “Drill & fill”. A filling has a life expectancy of approx. 10-15 years. Then usually a larger filling is made, which often leads to tooth loss after the 3rd filling.

What is Guided Enamel Remineralization?

Guided Enamel Remineralization (GER) describes an anti-cavity treatment to remineralize enamel, which was lost due to a white spot.

What is CURODONT REPAIR FLUORIDE PLUS ?

CURODONT REPAIR FLUORIDE PLUS is a locally applied professional mouth rinse for the in-depth anti-cavity treatment of white spots. Applied to the white spot it guides the remineralization.

How does CURODONT REPAIR FLUORIDE PLUS work?

Applied onto the cleaned and dry white spot, CURODONT REPAIR FLUORIDE PLUS s’ unique formulation help the fluorid and calcium found in saliva, to penetrate the enamel surface into the white spot. Lost enamel is remineralized over time.

What are the indications for CURODONT REPAIR FLUORIDE PLUS?

CURODONT REPAIR FLUORIDE PLUS s an anticavity dental rinse, for professional in-office treatment of buccal-, occlusal and proximal- white spots. Suitable for patients 4 years and older.

  • Prevention of dental cavities
  • Remineralizes enamel
  • Helps to repair, strengthen and protect teeth

Is CURODONT REPAIR FLUORIDE PLUS also recommended for patients with high caries risk ?

Generally, the CURODONT REPAIR FLUORIDE PLUS anti-cavity rinse can also be used for high caries-risk patients, however, regular recalls are recommended, if necessary at short intervals.

What is the treatment protocol?

1. Professional denral cleaning 2. Removal of the pellicle using 2 % sodium hypochlorite for 20 seconds. 3. Removal of inorganic deposits using 35% phosphoric acid for 20 seconds. 4. Rinse tooth surface with water. 5. Dry the tooth surface. 6. Apply CURODONT REPAIR FLUORIDE PLUS & wait 5 minutes Note: The opening of the pores in the hypomineralised plate is a requirement for a succsessful diffusion and in-depth remineralization with CURODONT REPAIR FLUORIDE PLUS. In cases of inactive caries, with no activity for several years (thick hypomineralised plate), an in-depth diffusion of CURODONT REPAIR FLUORIDE PLUS is unlikely.

May patients eat and drink immediately after treatment?

Yes, eating and drinking or even tooth brushing is possible after the treatment has been completed.

Does the use of CURODONT REPAIR FLUORIDE PLUS preclude the use of additional fluoride or other substances promoting remineralization?

No. Other means promoting remineralization such as fluoride varnish, may provide additional support for the regeneration of hard tooth tissue. However, all treatments should be carried out only after an interval of at least 5 minutes after the application of CURODONT REPAIR FLUORIDE PLUS. After this time, the diffusion of CURODONT REPAIR FLUORIDE PLUS into the white spot is completed.

What is the difference to products containing highly concentrated fluoride?

Fluoride containing products promote the remineralization and make the enamel surface more acid resistant. But they act solely on the surface. CURODONT REPAIR FLUORIDE PLUS does not use high concentrations of fluoride, but with its unique CUROLOX® formulation and the application procedure helps fluoride and minerals like calcium from the saliva, to penetrate the enamel surface into the white spots.

Can CURODONT REPAIR FLUORIDE PLUS be applied more than once?

Yes. To optimize the results, CURODONT REPAIR FLUORIDE PLUS can be applied several times at intervals of 3-6 months between each application.
