Description

Cervitec Plus varnish contains a combination of the active ingredients, chlorhexidine and thymol. Chlorhexidine diacetate is an antimicrobial that has long been used in dentistry to reduce bacteria known to cause plaque formation, inflammation, and caries. Thymol, derived from oil of thyme, is a common ingredient found in oral mouth rinses because of its antiseptic characteristics.

  • Allows for selective placement to targeted areas for both reduction of bacteria and for desensitization of hypersensitive dentin.
  • Available in a 20-count box of 0.25 g single dose packets or in a 7 g tube.

Cervitec Plus is ideal for use:

  • In areas susceptible to caries (e.g., fissures, root surfaces)
  • Around orthodontic brackets to prevent white spot lesions
  • On existing white spot lesions
  • Along the margins of implants, crowns, and bridges
  • After temporary restoration placement
  • After scaling and root planing
