Product Description

Clean & Boost is an aqueous cleanser that has been designed to remove contaminants from the surface of a tooth prior to bonding. These contaminants include such things as: tooth debris, temporary cement, bacteria, blood, saliva, hand piece oil, imaging powder (used to create digital impressions for CEREC restorations), etc.

Along with cleansing the surface, Clean & Boost will etch tooth surfaces to increase bond strengths of self-etch materials. Self-etch cements and many self-etch adhesives lack the ability to thoroughly prepare enamel. This lack of etching leads to staining of the margins, microleakage, and accelerated marginal wear. Clean & Boost properly prepares the enamel surface, resulting in improved long-term results. While cleaning and etching, Clean & Boost also disinfects the surfaces being treated.

Clean & Boost is completely rinsed from the surface after use and, thus, is compatible with all other dental materials.

Principle uses of Clean & Boost:

• Cleansing dentin and enamel surfaces
• Etching tooth structure for improved adhesion and long-term results
• Removing imaging powder from all surfaces
• Disinfecting tooth surfaces
• Available in a liquid or gel

Cleansing Dentin and Enamel Surfaces
During the preparation of a tooth, the tooth can become contaminated with a wide variety of things including: tooth debris, temporary cement, bacteria, blood, saliva, handpiece oil, imaging powder (used to create digital impressions for CEREC restorations), etc. Clean & Boost acts to lift, dissolve, and ultimately eliminate these contaminants to ensure a pristine surface for bonding.

Etches and Roughens the Enamel Surface
Clean & Boost works to etch/roughen the enamel and dentin surfaces to help promote bonding and produce more robust margins. Self-etch cements and many self-etch adhesives lack the ability to thoroughly prepare enamel. This lack of etching leads to staining of the margins, microleakage, and accelerated marginal wear. Clean & Boost properly prepares the enamel surface, resulting in improved long-term results.

Removal of Imaging Powder
Imaging powder is titanium dioxide that, when applied to a tooth, allows digital cameras to identify surfaces and create digital impressions. Post-imaging, this powder creates a challenge, in that it must be completely removed prior to the final delivery of a restoration. In the past, it was thought that water was effective in cleansing the tooth after imaging. Unfortunately, water has not proven to be a sufficient cleanser and a residual layer of titanium dioxide remains unless further actions are taken. It has been proven clinically that this residual layer can block dentin tubules and lead to numerous issues, including sensitivity and debonds. Clean & Boost uses a unique blend of ingredients that work together to lift and suspend the imaging powder in solution so it can be easily rinsed from the tooth surface. This added level of cleanliness provides an ideal surface for bonding.

Disinfects the Tooth Surface
Clean & Boost is a disinfectant. While the contaminants are lifted from the surface, Clean & Boost disinfects the tooth. This disinfecting of the surface helps to eliminate bacteria and reduces the opportunity for secondary caries.

Clean & Boost Sell Sheet

Successful bonding starts with a clean surface. After a tooth is prepared for a restoration, it is critical to remove all surface contamination prior to the application of an adhesive. Contaminants such as tooth debris, temporary cement, bacteria, blood, saliva, hand piece oil, and imaging powder will lower bond strengths and can lead to debonds, sensitivity, or microleakage. Clean and Boost™ acts to remove these contaminants and provide a pristine surface for bonding. Clean and Boost™ is an aqueous cleanser that has been designed to remove contaminants, disinfect, desensitize and etch the tooth surface prior to bonding. ...

Clean and Boost pre-bonding prep cleaner
We use Clean and Boost to clean off any debris or blood in a prep before bonding. Additionally we use it to etch before applying a one bottle bonding agent (Superb) by just leaving it on for a few seconds before rinsing. It leaves a perfectly clean surface so I know I'm getting the maximum bond possible. It comes as a liquid or a gel, and we prefer the gel. It's very easy to apply and just takes a few seconds to rinse off.

Love it
Nothing cleans a prep like Clean and Boost. I haven't seen anything that removes clotted blood or temp cement like this does. Even though it cleans blood off teeth, it won't re-initiate bleeding that has been stopped with AlCl like PO4 etching does. It also slightly etches the tooth and seems to really improve bond strength of self-etching bonding agents. I used to clean preps with alchol and got a lot of white. I switched to Clean and Boost, and now I don't get white lines.
