Orthodontists Can Now Remineralize White Spot Lesions Around Brackets With Curodont Repair Fluoride Plus
Orthodontists now have an effective treatment for white spot lesions that appear on patients’ teeth while braces are still on. Curodont Repair Fluoride Plus is a noninvasive preventive therapy that remineralizes white spots from the inside out. Orthodontists or trained dental hygienists can easily apply this therapy to remineralize white spots around brackets on patients who wear braces.
“Curodont Repair Fluoride Plus is a game-changer, offering doctors and their patients an opportunity for treatment between preventive and restorative interventions,” notes Jonathan Espel, preventive category director at Young Specialties. “Studies show that through guided enamel remineralization — while brackets are still on — Curodont Repair Fluoride Plus results in a 13 times higher probability of success compared to fluoride varnish1 and offers a 95% success rate.2”
Curodont Repair Fluoride Plus is available to orthodontists through sole U.S. distributor Young Specialties, a division of Young Innovations, a leading global supplier of dental products. Young Innovations has collaborated with the maker Curodont Repair Fluoride Plus, vVARDIS, a cutting-edge oral care manufacturer based in Switzerland, to bring this product to market in the United States.
Curodont Repair Fluoride Plus is applied directly onto the cleaned surface of the white spot and allowed to dry for five minutes. After as little as one application, Curodont Repair Fluoride Plus acts where it is needed. Initial results are visible in about 90 days.
Young Innovation’s distribution of Curodont Repair Fluoride Plus to orthodontists reflects a continued commitment to invest in dental treatment therapies that can prevent and address dental caries, the largest and most prevalent noncommunicable disease globally.
