In my office, we are sometimes faced with resistance when we begin talking to patients about tooth whitening. Sometimes they just cannot afford it; other times, friends have told them about products sold online or at the grocery store. Now Ultradent has come up with an alternative that you can offer patients that eliminates the cost of impressions, models, and trays. I have tried this product and found this new, unique tray material offers a comfortable fit. The overall experience is excellent. This new product is designed to give offices an option for those patients who demand a more affordable, convenient, and yet professional whitening result. This is for those patients who have found that whitening strips or other products found in drug stores did not really give them the results they wanted. Opalescence Go is the professional tooth whitening alternative to over-the-counter products. This product features on-the-go convenience with the UltraFit tray's superior adaptation to ensure the maximum amount of gel stays in contact with teeth during whitening. The tray has molar-to-molar coverage, making contact with more posterior teeth. It provides safe, professional results with the Opalescence sticky, viscous gel. The 10% hydrogen peroxide concentration has wear times from 30 to 60 minutes, and the 15% hydrogen peroxide concentration has wear times from 15 to 20 minutes. Just like the company's take-home product, Opalescence Go includes PF (potassium nitrate and fluoride). Potassium nitrate has been shown to help reduce sensitivity. Fluoride has been shown to help reduce caries and strengthen enamel. Together they help to improve the overall health of the teeth. The convenient prefilled trays can be worn right out of the package, and come in delicious mint, melon, and peach flavors. The optimal quantity of gel ensures maximum results, and can easily be brushed off after whitening. The sleek, attractive packaging provides stability, shelf life, and eye-catching branding.
