Why Hygienists Trust Pulpdent
As hygienists, we often hear patients say they have “soft teeth” and expect to have cavities at their routine cleaning appointments. More likely than not, the issue is diet, education, and patient behavior.
Our mission is disease prevention. We identify risk factors and educate our patients about the causes of tooth decay and gum disease, and the preventive actions they can take.
There is a growing arsenal of prevention materials. As a patient, it is important to understand if the products your dental provider uses help prevent decay and disease.
I have learned that not all dental products are created equal and that these differences are a result of technological advances and the dental manufacturer’s prevention philosophy.
“One of my responsibilities is to create an environment that is favorable for the natural healing process.”
— Harold Berk, DDS, DSc, founder, Pulpdent Corporation
Choosing products that align with the natural components of our enamel is essential in the prevention of tooth decay. Teeth are made of calcium and phosphate, and materials that incorporate these essential minerals help to replenish and protect tooth structure. The addition of fluoride makes teeth more acid-resistant. Pulpdent prevention products contain calcium, phosphate and fluoride and help promote long term oral health.
Products That Make a Difference
Not all fluorides are the same. Understanding the products being placed on your or your children’s teeth is important. Pulpdent’s Embrace™ Varnish releases calcium, phosphate, and 10 times more fluoride than the leading varnish in 4 hours. This helps restore minerals to teeth that have been weakened by dietary sugars.
Embrace WetBond Pit & Fissure Sealant
The natural anatomy and deep grooves on the chewing surfaces of our teeth trap bacteria and lead to tooth decay. Sealants act as a protective coating that seals these grooves. Unlike other dental sealants, Embrace WetBond Pit & Fissure Sealant is moisture-friendly, making it much easier to place on children. The material also offers unique sealing properties that prevent it from flaking off, increase longevity, and provide greater protection against tooth decay.
