Antivet is a one-visit treatment for the removal of brown stains caused by fluorosis and extrinsic stains caused by tobacco smoking.
The low-pH solution helps to separate the fluoride ions out of the fluorotic area. Following treatment with the enamel cleaning solution, a neutralizing solution is applied for 2 minutes.
Mode of Action :
The tooth’s surface is exposed to an acid solution by ionization by the fluoride absorbed in the
apatite crystals (stains). This reaction allows for the fluoride ions to separate from the fluoride
ions in the apatite crystals, forming soluble salts that are easily removed from the tooth enamel
surface. Once the stains are removed, a calcium hydroxide solution is applied to neutralize the
residual acidic solution left on the tooth surface. Lastly, the tooth is rinsed with water.
