Important Information About Max Strength
The 44% Carbamide Peroxide strength whitening gel is considered the highest concentration available and has the potential to irritate gum tissue during whitening treatments for some users.
The higher strength formulas like 44% Carbamide Peroxide and lesser 35% gel whiten teeth slightly faster and with fewer treatments than the 22% strength whitening gel. However, the user may experience increased tooth sensitivity
and gum irritation, common side effects of peroxide based teeth whitening. Both tooth sensitivity and gum irritation are temporary and will subside within about a day following each treatment. If teeth and/or gums are known to be sensitive or if you are considering peroxide based teeth whitening for the first time,
the 22% whitening gel is recommended. The 22% whitening gel will whiten teeth well with a few more treatments
but with less potential for discomfort.
It is important to note that when dental impression trays are formed well, only a very light strip of whitening gel is required to fill the space between dental tray walls and teeth. Excess gel applied will remain suspended on gum tissue, which can cause irritation. It's recommended to apply small dots of gel along dental tray and then spread the gel evenly over the tray impression using syringe nozzle. It may seem like too little gel, but when activated the gel expands and will provide adequate tooth coverage. For all whitening gel, it is advised on instructions cards supplied; "Should tooth sensitivity persist, reduce treatment frequency and/or duration. If continued discomfort is apparent, discontinue use and consult your dentist." All whitening gels are intended for use by individuals with healthy teeth and gums. Gel should not be used by anyone with periodontal disease, decayed teeth or open mouth sores.
