Enamelon® Preventive Treatment Gel by Premier Dental Products Co

A proper daily self-care routine remains a key step in the fight against dental caries, gingivitis, and hypersensitivity.

EVERYDAY RELIEF AND PROTECTION

A proper daily self-care routine remains a key step in the fight against dental caries, gingivitis, and hypersensitivity. Patient compliance and ease of use can make or break a successful treatment plan. Issues such as safety concerns about fluoride exposure, the use of multiple products, awkward finger-to-mouth applications, and taste can compromise even the best intentions of good self-care. Multiple oral health challenges can complicate the process. To simplify this task, Premier Dental Products Co offers Enamelon Preventive Treatment Gel—a safe and effective alternative for patient self-care. This nonabrasive gel provides an immediate and long-lasting soothing, moisturizing, and lubricating effect through the use of proprietary co-polymers.

Enamelon is formulated with stabilized stannous fluoride plus amorphous calcium phosphate (ACP) technology. This formulation offers an effective at-home treatment plan for sensitivity relief, in addition to prevention of caries and gingivitis. Enamelon treats sensitivity by blocking the exposed tubules with a combination of stannous ions along with fluoride, calcium, and phosphate salts. This creates a physical barrier that covers open dentinal tubules to prevent external stimuli from causing pain or discomfort.

MORE PROTECTION, LESS FLUORIDE EXPOSURE

Enamelon’s patent-pending formula contains 970 ppm fluoride, which uses calcium and phosphate ions to uniquely deliver high levels of fluoride uptake. Enamelon is designed to reduce the solubility of enamel, preventing demineralization of the tooth surface when exposed to acids. Enamelon Preventive Treatment Gel is also said to decrease enamel solubility, providing protection against acid challenges.

Users, parents, and caregivers commonly apply up to twice the amount of recommended toothpaste when brushing. Enamelon offers reduced-size orifices, so users, parents, and caregivers can easily control dispensing or dosage. Additionally, Enamelon products do not contain sodium lauryl sulfate, which is commonly found in 5,000-ppm fluoride toothpastes and 1,100-ppm to 1,500-ppm fluoride over-the-counter toothpastes. It is also free of gluten and dyes. Enamelon is available for purchase through authorized dealers.
