Clean & Boost® is an aqueous cleanser that has been designed to remove contaminants from the surface of a tooth prior to bonding. These contaminants include such things as: tooth debris, temporary cement, bacteria, blood, saliva, hand piece oil, imaging powder (used to create digital impressions for CEREC® restorations), etc.
Along with cleansing the surface, Clean & Boost® will etch tooth surfaces to increase bond strengths of self-etch materials. Self-etch cements and many self-etch adhesives lack the ability to thoroughly prepare enamel. This lack of etching leads to staining of the margins, micro-leakage and accelerated marginal wear. Clean & Boost®properly prepares the enamel surface, resulting in improved long term results. While cleaning and etching, Clean & Boost® disinfects the surfaces being treated.
