TongueCare+ by Philips Sonicare

TongueCare+ pairs sonic technology and the antibacterial strength of Philips Sonicare BreathRx. The tongue brush has flexible elastomer MicroBristles to clean around papillae. The 31,000 vibrations per minute help break up tongue coating.

The alcohol-free tongue spray contains antibacterial cetylpyridinium chloride and Zytex.

The tongue brush attaches to most Sonicare power toothbrush handles.


Dental Dams by Vista Dental Products

Two separate dental dam configurations are available for in-office whitening procedures. The light-cured, blue, resin barrier protects soft tissue with an impenetrable seal, removes easily, and applies directly. The dam configurations protect oral tissue or isolate adjacent teeth.
