Innovative Solutions for Different Preventive Procedures

  • 1. Clean

    A great cleaning procedure is one that efficiently removes tough, cavity-causing stains without eroding too much existing enamel and dentin. Clean the teeth thoroughly  and if available, use 3M™ Clinpro™ Prophy Paste.

  • 3m clinpro white varnish topical fluoride application
    2. Treat

    Complete, extended fluoride coverage is key for accelerating remineralization and arresting the development of caries. 3M™ Clinpro™ White Varnish offers targeted, sustained fluoride release with low viscosity for easy flow and adherence.

  • clinpro sealant for caries prevention
    3. Protect

    3M™ Clinpro™ Sealant offers smart color-change technology - it goes on pink for easy-to-see application, and cures to a natural white. Its low viscosity allows it to flow easily into pits and fissures, for complete fluoride coverage that bonds effectively to enamel. 

  • 4. Maintain

    Continue the treatment between visits with take-home solutions like 3M™ Clinpro™ Tooth Crème toothpaste with innovative functionalised Tri-Calcium Phosphate (fTCP) to help protect, strengthen and repair teeth.
