Imagine being called the best for 3 years in a row! FluoroDose Fluoride Varnish, from Centrix, Inc., was ranked the top fluoride varnish for 2015-2017. From the rankers’ comments, one can see why: “Every child liked it”, “Seemed less sticky than other brands,” “Patients liked the variety of flavors.” It would be hard to choose between caramel, mint, cherry, melon, and bubble gum! Patients also love that it dries clear, leaving no discoloration. It takes only seconds to dry after contact with saliva and then remains on teeth for 6 to 8 hours, releasing 5% sodium fluoride, the maximum dosage allowed in single-use units.
Clinicians liked the smooth consistency of FluoroDose, which makes it easier to apply, as well as less likely to clog up vacuum lines. It couldn’t be easier to use: just peel back the cover and mix and apply with the attached, disposable Benda Brush. Using the “swipe on” technique also eliminates worrying about the patient ingesting any of the varnish, as can happen with rinses and gels in trays.
FluoroDose is also cleared by the FDA for treating dentinal sensitivity, so you can use the same product for children through adults. Hmmm, maybe I will get to taste it one day!
