Ivoclar Vivadent's Fluor Protector S is a fluoride-containing protective varnish for treatment of dentinal hypersensitivity, exposed cervicals and sensitivity after tooth whitening.

The innovative formulation is designed to ensure immediate availability of fluoride that is safe and suitable for all ages. It requires no mixing, stirring or measuring. The unique 1.5 percent percent ammonium fluoride formula is said to allow the varnish to be completely homogenous and maintain excellent flow and wetting properties. It reportedly even flows easily into hard-to-reach interproximal areas. 

The fluoride content is equivalent to .77 percent, or 7700ppm, at application. The concentration increases to nearly four times higher (approximately 30,000ppm) once the varnish has set after interacting with the saliva. The innovative formula of Fluor Protector S is designed to provide for excellent adhesion to the tooth surface and fast absorption into enamel for long-term protection from acid attacks. Fluor Protector S is supplied in a high yielding, multi-dose form and individually portioned single-dose units.

The varnish hardens to a thin, clear film on the tooth surface, providing a highly esthetic result for patients with no thick, clumpy or sticky feeling following treatment. Patients can eat and drink one hour after application, and Fluor Protector S is safe for children and adolescents due to the low fluoride concentration at application.
