C.E.T. FluraFom, 5.5 oz SKU: 018VR-CET801 [printable] Virbac Dental Preparation Active Ingredient(s): C.E.T. FluraFom contains 1.23% fluoride (from sodium fluoride and hydrogen fluoride) in a phosphoric acid foam at pH 3.0- 3.4. Indications: Fluoride treatment can be an important adjunct to routine dental prophylaxis. Although dogs and cats are relatively resistant to developing caries, the beneficial uses of fluoride therapy are well documented. These benefits include desensitizing exposed dentin, strengthening tooth enamel, decreasing the rate of plaque re-attachment, and stimulating remineralization of the enamel. C.E.T. FluraFom is a fluoride treatment specifically developed for use on animals. C.E.T. FluraFom’s delivery system is more efficient than regular fluoride gels. The dynamic foam provides a continuous supply of fluoride to the tooth surface requiring less fluoride to produce a comparable fluoride uptake. Dosage and Administration: C.E.T. FluraFom should be used on an intubated and anesthetized patient. After a thorough cleaning, polishing and irrigating, dry the teeth completely using an air syringe. Shake the applicator vigorously. Gently push down on the nozzle, and apply a ribbon of C.E.T. FluraFom directly on the upper and lower row of teeth, one (1) side at a time. If necessary, use a soft-bristled toothbrush to evenly distribute the foam over all of the tooth surfaces. Allow one (1) to two (2) minutes for the foam to dissipate and then remove any remaining foam. The fluoride is continuously deposited on the tooth enamel as the foam dissipates. Avoid food and water for 30 minutes after treatment. A fluoride treatment is recommended every four (4) to six (6) months. Note: Because the nozzle has a tendency to release too much foam, first-time users of C.E.T. FluraFom may wish to test the application on a smooth surface prior to applying it on the teeth. Discussion: Fluoride uptake efficiency of C.E.T. FluraFom: Fluoride gels are available with neutral or acidic pH. The 1.23% acidulated phosphate fluoride gels with a 3-3.5 pH have been shown to have a better capacity to bond with the calcium in the tooth enamel. The fluoride uptake by teeth exposed to C.E.T. FluraFom and a commercial gel product (both 1.23% acidulated phosphate fluoride) have been measured under experimental laboratory conditions. Results from one study are summarized, and demonstrate the fluoride uptake achieved by C.E.T. FluraFom is consistently higher than that provided by the traditional gel-type product. In addition, since substantially less fluoride is required to produce comparable fluoride uptake, the use of the foam minimizes exposure to systemic fluoride. The

I still laugh when I think about my friend telling me about the trials and tribulations of brushing her cat's teeth! Wasn't easy. She's given up.

Pros: Works

Cons: ...if you can get your cat to keep still

Need a better way to brush your tiny cougar's teeth?

posted 7 years ago

I worked in a vet's office for a while this year. I saw a lot of products with C.E.T. attached to the item. These items are still carried in my veterinarian's office. He recommends them to each of his patients. Believe me, he knows how hard it is to convice a cat that it is time for a tooth cleaning! This is much easier to use and easier for your skin to handle.

Pros: It is so helpful for your pet cat. Considering that it is very difficult to use a toothbrush on them.

Cons: The price may be a bit stiff for those on a low budget, but the benefits out wiegh the price.
