Novelty for dental prophylaxis

Ivoclar presents a genuine innovation for professional tooth cleaning

Schaan, Liechtenstein – 3 June 2024

The Ivoclar Group, one of the world's leading manufacturers of integrated solutions for high-quality dental applications with an extensive product and systems portfolio for dentists, dental technicians and dental hygienists, presents the VivaDent® Aerosol Reduction Gel – a genuine innovation for professional tooth cleaning. The gel revolutionizes prophylaxis procedures in dental practices, providing a more comfortable experience for patients and practitioners.

Everyday prophylaxis work involves a variety of challenges for dental hygienists and dentists, in particular when it comes to the use of ultrasonic scalers. The aerosol and spray mist produced by ultrasonic scalers can impair the visibility of the treatment area and pose risks for practitioners and patients.

A milestone in dental scaling: up to 99[1] percent[2] reduction in aerosol

In response to these challenges, the innovative VivaDent® Aerosol Reduction Gel was developed: The unique formulation provides for the effective reduction – by up to 99 per cent – of spray mist and aerosol produced by ultrasonic[3] scalers. This genuine innovation is a milestone in prophylaxis work and meets the highest quality standards. The systematic reduction of spray mist and aerosol not only facilitates professional tooth cleaning but also offers several benefits:

  • Better visibility of the treatment area
  • Reduced likelihood of spreading airborne diseases by reducing the aerosol produced
  • More comfortable experience for patients as the face remains drier due to less spray mist
  • Easy handling and dosage

"The VivaDent Aerosol Reduction Gel binds aerosol before it can form. Plus, the mix-in gel is gluten-free, lactose-free, vegan and tasteless to meet the requirements of all patients," says Maurizio Dottore, Director GBU Prevention & Care of the Ivoclar Group.

No compromises when it comes to efficient and safe professional tooth cleaning

VivaDent Aerosol Reduction Gel is a clear, water-based solution that does not cause stains on teeth or permanent stains on clothes and other surfaces. The mix-in gel (single dose sachet with practical one-hand opening) can be mixed quickly and seamlessly integrates into daily preparation routines. No additional instruments are required to reduce aerosols. Likewise, the handling of the ultrasonic scaler remains unchanged, which makes this innovative product an integral part of the modern dental practice.

Minimum effort – maximum effect

In two easy mix-in steps, the entire content of a single dose sachet is mixed with one litre of water in a mixing bottle by shaking vigorously for about 30 seconds to form a homogeneous solution. After a rest time of at least 10 minutes, ideally overnight, the prepared solution is filled into the external coolant tank and professional tooth cleaning can begin.

This genuine innovation from Ivoclar not only creates a safer and more pleasant practice environment for dental hygienists and dentists, but also for patients, and thus reflects the company’s credo "Making People Smile".
