KöR Complete Desensitizer: A Complete Solution to Tooth Sensitivity
Like everything that comes out of KöR and the team led by research and development scientist and company founder Dr. Rod Kurthy, KöR Complete Desensitizer has been met with positive comments by dentists far and wide.
Before you treat your next patient with sensitivity, make sure you understand its cause and that you have a treatment that’s fast, effective, and complete.
1. Understand why and how.
When you understand causes tooth sensitivity, you’ll better understand the best way to treat it. For example, whitening can dislodge the smear plugs that protect dentinal tubules, leaving them open to nerve irritation. Acidic diets (such as those that include wine, soda, coffee, fruit juice and sports drinks) can alter salivary pH, which can result in enlarged dentinal tubules and dislodge the smear plugs.
To treat whitening sensitivity, many dental professionals use fluoride, amorphous calcium phosphate (ACP), and potassium nitrate. Potassium nitrate doesn’t treat the cause and fluoride and ACP take a long time to re-plug the tubules and may not do the job completely.
KöR Complete, on the other hand, uses the process of chelation to instantly fuse calcium oxalate mineral crystals to the dense hydroxyapatite molecules in peritubular dentin inside the tubules. This results in sealed dentinal tubules that stay that way. In other words, KöR Complete treats the cause of sensitivity, rather than treating just the symptoms.
2. Make it fast and effective.
Sensitivity relief shouldn’t be something your patients have to wait for. Typical sensitivity treatments like fluoride, ACP, and potassium nitrate take a while to show results (sometimes weeks) that can be inconsistent. KöR Complete immediately fuses to tooth structure to close dentinal tubules to instantly and effectively reduce or eliminate sensitivity.
3. No limit to indications.
KöR Complete isn’t just about whitening sensitivity, though it treats that, too. It also treats virtually every type of vital tooth sensitivity:
- generalized and localized sensitivity
- exposed root surface sensitivity
- periodontal causes (before and after hygiene treatments, periodontal surgery)
- restorative causes (under temporary and final restorations, when cleaning cement, around sensitive margins).
Knowing why your patients are experiencing discomfort related to sensitivity is the first step to choosing the right treatment.
And it seems that the right treatment should always provide consistent, effective, and immediate results for all types of sensitivity. In other words, it should be “complete.”
