Vanish XT is the best!
My office has tried several different fluoride varnishes trying to help patients with hypersensitivity. Vanish XT is the best by far. It is very easy to use, just dispense one or two clicks depending on how many teeth you need to cover, mix, place and light cure. With the curing of the product, it helps it to stay on better and doesn't leave that "fuzzy, dirty" feeling on the teeth that other varnishes do. It also lasts much longer than other varnishes. Most of my patients (at least 90%) have said it helped tremendously with their hypersensitivity and about half of them can go a year without re-application. However, most want re-application every 6 months whether it is "wearing off" or not just to be safe. I have used it on ortho patients as well. It is a great varnish to use around brackets to give young patients a little extra protection while in ortho. Because we all know kids do not brush very well, especially along the gum line on upper and lower anteriors. With this being light cured the child can not brush it off too soon before they get the full benefit of the varnish. This makes them much more compliant and able to get the full benefits of a varnish fluoride. I highly recommend Vanish XT to anyone wanting a good long lasting varnish.
