According to the National Institutes of Health’s Oral Health in America: Advances and Challenges report, dental caries is the most prevalent dental disorder among children, affecting one in four preschoolers and at least one in six children aged 6–11 years in their permanent teeth. Addressing carious lesions while still noncavitated and asymptomatic is crucial in managing this widespread issue in the pediatric population. Curodont Repair Fluoride Plus by vVARDIS offers an effective, noninvasive treatment specifically developed for these early stages of caries.

This biomimetic technology employs guided enamel remineralization using a low-viscosity liquid formula that diffuses through enamel and enables remineralizing ions from saliva, such as calcium and phosphate, to initiate the remineralization process.

Curodont Repair Fluoride Plus has several advantages for use in pediatric patients. It is applied in a single short in-office procedure without the need for drilling, anesthesia or a dental dam, making it ideal for children. The formula is nonstaining and tasteless and requires only a single application per lesion. It can, however, be reapplied for high caries risk patients, such as those with rampant caries or undergoing orthodontic treatment.

Pediatric dentists play a critical role in shaping positive dental experiences for young patients. Noninvasive treatments like Curodont Repair Fluoride Plus are valuable tools in ensuring patient acceptance and fostering a positive outlook toward dental care. This treatment is particularly beneficial for children and adolescents with special needs, who may face challenges in maintaining oral hygiene. For these patients, Curodont Repair Fluoride Plus can prevent potentially painful situations by addressing developing white spots early on.

In addition to the in-office treatment, Curodont Protect, a remineralizing dental gel, serves as an excellent at-home complement to Curodont Repair Fluoride Plus. It helps protect and strengthen enamel, aiding in the prevention of caries. Together, Curodont Repair Fluoride Plus and Curodont Protect offer comprehensive treatment and maintenance solutions that address the growing need for noninvasive early caries management in children.
