Cervitec Plus protective varnish introduced

May 14, 2008
Varnish intended to ensure the quality of restorative work, as well as provide protection for high-risk caries patients.

AMHERST, New York--Ivoclar Vivadent has introduced a protective varnish: Cervitec Plus.

Based on its predecessor, Cervitec Plus is a new-generation varnish intended to ensure the quality of restorative work (e.g., crown and bridge work and implants), as well as provide protection for high-risk caries patients.

More than a decade of clinical experience and multiple international studies confirm the effectiveness of Cervitec. It has been shown to protect at-risk, exposed and sensitive tooth surfaces. The new generation Cervitec Plus has been developed based on this original success while maintaining and enhancing proven features.

The varnish contains the proven combination of 1% chlorhexidine and 1% thymol and is available in Multi Dose and Single Dose units, each of which prevents the risk of cross-contamination. The dropper tube allows the required amount of varnish to be dispensed hygienically and economically.

Enhanced characteristics of Cervitec Plus include improved adhesion to tooth surfaces and heightened tolerance to moisture during its application. As a
result, this innovative varnish wets tooth surfaces more thoroughly and demonstrates excellent penetration.

The clinically proven active ingredients remain where they are needed longer and promote the formation of a coating or barrier, making Cervitec Plus highly effective in very small doses of the active ingredients.

Therefore, the side effects associated with chlorhexidine are prevented. Instead, patients enjoy months of professional protection without the need to follow any special regimen.
