Preventive Dental Solutions

Preventive dentistry to keep your patients' smiles happy and healthy.

  • Dentist and patient

    Innovative solutions that support a minimal intervention approach.

    • Every day you see patients who don’t brush and floss like they should. The plaque bacteria and sugars in their mouths form acids that weaken tooth structure, leaving them vulnerable to tooth decay.

    • That’s why an effective plan for treating their caries must also include a strategy to protect them from their caries-causing habits. If that sounds time-consuming or complicated—it isn’t. 3M gives you a comprehensive solution that restores and protects… and that’s fast and easy, too.

Effective care for high-risk patients starts in your practice and follows them home.

    Restore.

    When treating a patient with caries, a fluoride-releasing glass ionomer (GI) is a restorative of choice. In addition, glass ionomers are an excellent choice for a minimally invasive procedure.

    Without compromising aesthetic results, nano-composites are a great option for a restoration that simplifies your procedure and practice.

  • Icon showing tooth in a shield

    Protect.

    Many studies and years of clinical experience show that the application of fluoride, calcium and phosphate is beneficial to the health of teeth.

    You can help protect your patients with a combination of 3M in-office and at-home products containing fluoride and Tri-Calcium Phosphate (TCP).

    Mineralise.

    Send them home with powerful protection that's as simple as brushing.

    Getting patients to comply with a treatment can be challenging. But Clinpro Tooth Crème with TCP simply replaces their current toothpaste in their brushing routine, up to twice a day, making compliance easy.
