  • 1. Clean

    A great cleaning procedure is one that efficiently removes tough, cavity-causing stains without eroding too much existing enamel and dentin. 3M™ Clinpro™ Prophy Paste reduces abrasions, while delivering an exceptional gloss.

  • 2. Treat

    Complete, extended fluoride coverage is key for accelerating remineralisation and arresting the development of caries. 3M™ Clinpro™ White Varnish offers targeted, sustained fluoride release with low viscosity for easy flow and adherence.

  • 3. Protect

    Deliver long-lasting protection against caries with ease. 3M™ Clinpro™ Sealant flows readily into pits and fissures, and features a smart colour-change technology that helps verify placement for targeted flouride release.

  • 4. Maintain

    Continue the treatment between visits with take-home solutions like 3M™ Clinpro™ Tooth Crème toothpaste with innovative functionalised Tri-Calcium Phosphate (fTCP) to help protect, strengthen and repair teeth. For higher caries-risk patients, 3M™ Clinpro™ 5000 high fluoride toothpaste provides additional protection and aids compliance with a large tube that lasts 6 months - ideal between patient recalls.
