Xantia™ applied directly to teeth
Dexcel Pharma Inc. introduces a new product that whitens teeth without encumbering the user with strips or trays to carry the whitening agent. Xantia™ is applied directly to the tooth surface using a special applicator brush. It is a controlled-release liquid polymer that's an opaque, hydro alcoholic visous solution containing the proven whitening agent, carbamide peroxide. Xantia™ is applied twice daily to stained teeth over a two-week regimen and is recommended for ages 16 and over.
Xantia™ is said to be formulated to be a safe and effective alternative to much stronger bleaching solutions promoted by a variety of manufacturers in hydrogen peroxide concentrations that are outside the general guidelines of what should be acceptable for use by the patient. Xantia™ is meant to adapt to the user's hectic lifestyle, not to dictate a new schedule.
Xantia™ is distributed only through dental professionals so as to provide effective counseling, ensure proper patient utilization, and support for the patient.

Conair introduces four power toothbrushes
To complement Interplak's clinically proven personal model, Interplak by Conair Corporation has introduced four new power toothbrushes to meet the needs of every patient eager to make the transition from manual to power toothbrushes. The new toothbrushes, available to the professional market for $4 - $15, utilize Interplak technology while maintaining distinctive qualities.
The most advanced model, the Opti-Clean, has tapered DuPont (interproximal, subgingival, and polishing) bristles that sweep in a 110° oscillating motion. This unique triple-action brush head fits all Braun Oral-B power handles.
The I-Brush, focused on attracting a younger audience, features a battery-operated design; one-push start/stop; a 25-30° sweeping, brushing motion that makes plaque removal effortless; and a splash-proof handle that protects the unit during brushing. The brush head is designed to also fit on the Colgate Actibrush power handle.
The ezbrush is powered by one AA battery and designed to be replaced like a manual toothbrush, every three to four months.
With the same basic design of the ezbrush in mind, Fisher Price partnered with Interplak to create My Brush, a power toothbrush intended to get kids excited about brushing. My Brush, intended for ages four and up, is battery-operated, featuring a childproof Saf-T-Lok battery door, remarkably soft bristles, and is inexpensively priced.
The product is available now for dispensing through professional offices. For more information, call Conair Corporation at (800) 633-6363.
LumaArch™ Bleaching System
The LumaArch™ Bleaching System provides complete, in-office tooth whitening in a single office visit. The unit bleaches both arches simultaneously, so total chairtime is less than ½ hour. LumaArch™ uses Xe-halogen light for a high-quality result with virtually no heat, so minimal rebound has been reported.
LumaArch™ takes up less than one square foot of floor space and can be rolled from room to room. In most cases, the hygienist or assistant can perform the procedure. Once the operator positions the illuminator, sets the timer, and presses a single button, the unit completes each hands-free cycle automatically. Patients see the results immediately.
LumaArch™ provides a way for practices to increase revenues and attract new patients. With patient fees for tooth whitening, the unit pays for itself in as few as seven to 15 bleachings. LumaLite, Inc. provides a variety of tools to help dentists increase revenues using the LumaArch™. These include patient brochures, posters, ad templates, a press release, and other materials.
For additional information on the LumaArch™ Bleaching System, contact your local dental dealer or call LumaLite, Inc. at (800) 400-2262.
