The CAO Group recently introduced Sheer FluorX Fluoride Treatment Film, which is easily applied and eliminates the bulky fluoride trays that often cause gagging by patients. SheerFluorX molds tightly to the teeth to ensure complete contact of Sheer FluorX's 5% acidulated sodium fluoride, enabling rapid uptake and preventing washout of the Sheer FluorX gel and leakage down a patient's throat. Sheer FluorX film does not trigger a gag reflex. The initial treatment is placed in-office, and the remaining Sheer FluorX Patient Treatment Kit is dispensed to the patient for home care. Each patient treatment kit provides 24 FluorX films.
