Breakthrough sensitivity treatment receives FDA approval

Click here to enlarge image

SootheRx is the first FDA-cleared, at-home-use prescription therapy indicated for both the rapid and continual relief of dentinal hypersensitivity. SootheRx uses NovaMin® (calcium sodium phosphosilicate), a technology resulting from 30 years of medical research into bone and tooth repair. The same compound has been successfully used in more than one million bone-regeneration surgeries.

While the biggest clinical benefit of SootheRx is its ability to provide both rapid and continual relief from sensitivity by occluding tubules with hydroxyapatite, its simplicity makes it even more appealing. SootheRx is used twice daily for two weeks in place of the patient’s usual toothpaste. Following this initial treatment stage, a once-per-week use is all that is required. Patients can use their dentifrice of choice or one you recommend for daily brushing.

Reinforced resin glaze delivers durable, glossy finish

Click here to enlarge image

Parkell introduces DuraFinish, a crystal-clear, non-yellowing, brush-on glaze that eliminates the need to mechanically polish direct composite restorations and temporary crowns and bridges.

In a simple, one-minute procedure, DuraFinish creates a much higher shine than is possible using points, wheels, and diamond paste. Apply a thin coat to the surface and polymerize with a halogen curing light.

The formula is built around a multifunctional molecule that penetrates and permanently bonds to the underlying composite surface to prevent flaking and staining. Unlike traditional glazes, which are unfilled resins, DuraFinish contains nanofiller - providing wear-resistance and a durable gloss.

DuraFinish comes in a 5-ml bottle with applicator brushes for $49.99, available from Parkell. For more information, call (800) 243-7446 or visit
