Curodont Repair Fluoride Plus, 10ct
Professional in-office treatment of white spot lesions.
Curodont™ Repair Fluoride Plus
Guided Enamel Regeneration
Professional in-office treatment of buccal, occlusal, and proximal early caries lesions. Suitable for patients 4 years and older. This innovative, easy-to-use treatment is non-invasive and uses a proprietary CUROLOX® formula to help teeth naturally re-mineralize. Unlike fluoride, which promotes remineralization and acid resistance on the tooth’s surface, Curodont Repair Fluoride Plus helps fluoride, calcium, and other minerals found within the patient’s saliva penetrate into the enamel. Re-mineralization and re-hardening occurs during the first few weeks after treatment.
- 95% success rate1
- Non-invasive therapy
- Cavity prevention and re-mineralization
- Can be used in conjunction with other re-mineralization products such as fluoride varnish

How it Works
|NATURAL CARIES PROTECTION||INCREASED CARIES RISK||GUIDED ENAMEL REMINERALIZATION|
|In a healthy oral environment, saliva facilitates constant re-mineralization. Saliva is rich in calcium and phosphate. Fluoride actively supports this natural remineralization process and strengthens enamel.||The constant acid challenge from bacteria inhibits the natural remineralization cycle and tooth minerals are lost. If demineralization cannot be stopped, enamel becomes porous (i.e. white spots). Targeted anti-caries measures are needed.||Applied directly onto the cleaned surface of the white spot CURODONT Repair Fluoride Plus acts where it is needed. Over the course of weeks, the unique CUROLOX® formulation and the application procedure help minerals, like fluoride and calcium, to penetrate the enamel surface into the white spots and to re-mineralize and re-harden the affected enamel over the next few weeks.|
What is Curodont Repair Fluoride Plus?
Curodont Repair Fluoride Plus is a professional, in-office treatment for white spot lesions. It promotes the natural re-mineralization of the tooth.
How does Curodont Repair Fluoride Plus work?
Applied to the cleaned and dry white spot, the proprietary CUROLOX formula helps the fluoride and calcium found in saliva to penetrate the enamel. Lost enamel is re-mineralized over time.
What are the indications of Curodont Repair Fluoride Plus?
Curodont Repair Fluoride Plus is a professional anti-cavity treatment suitable for patients 4 years and older.
- Prevention of dental caries
- Enamel re-mineralization
- Repair, strengthen, and protect teeth
Is Curodont Repair Fluoride Plus recommended for patients with high caries risk?
Generally, Curodont Repair Fluoride Plus can be used for high caries risk patients, however regular recalls at short intervals are recommended.
How is it different from products containing highly concentrated fluoride?
Fluoride containing products promote remineralization and make the enamel surface more acid resistant. But, they act solely on the surface of the tooth. Curodont Repair Fluoride Plus does not use high concentrations of fluoride. Instead, it uses a unique CUROLOX formulation to minerals from the saliva penetrate the enamel surface into the white spots.
Does the use of Curodont Repair Fluoride Plus preclude the use of additional fluoride or other substances promoting remineralization?
No. Other means of promoting remineralization, such as fluoride varnish, may provide additional support for the regeneration of tooth tissue. However, treatments should only be carried out after an interval of at least 5 minutes after treatment with Curodont. After this time, the diffusion into the white spot is complete.
Can Curodont Repair Fluoride Plus be applied more than once?
Yes. To optimize results, Curodont can be applied several times at intervals of 3-6 months between each application.
What is the treatment protocol?
1. Professional dental cleaning
2. Removal of the pellicle using 2% sodium hypochlorite for 20 seconds.
3. Removal of inorganic deposits using 35% phosphoric acid for 20 seconds.
4. Rinse tooth surface with water.
5. Dry the tooth surface.
6. Apply Curodont Repair Fluoride Plus & wait 5 minutes
Note: The opening of the pores in the hypomineralised plate is a requirement for a successful diffusion and in-depth remineralization. In cases of inactive caries, with no activity for several years (thick hypomineralised plate), an in-depth diffusion of Curodont Repair Fluoride Plus is unlikely.
