1. Corrosive. Attacks eyes – protect eyes when using.
2. Avoid contact with skin.
3. For professional use only.
4. Do not remove syringe from wrapper until ready to use - Pola Office+ is heat and light sensitive.
5. Keep out of reach of children.
6. Pola Office+ syringes may be under pressure - remove cap and attach nozzle with caution.

Note: Not everyone is suitable for in-office whitening e.g. patient with translucent teeth or in the Vita* C group.
2. Patient must have good overall health.
3. Seal all exposed roots and restorations.
4. Inform patient that results are not guaranteed as the removal of stains varies between patients.
5. Acid etching before treatment is NOT recommended.
6. Large diameter suction tips are not recommended as they can spread the gel to other areas.
7. Mild discomfort in teeth during treatment can be a common side effect.
8. If patient experiences sensitivity during light curing, move the tip slightly away from the tooth. If this doesn’t work, remove gel and rinse the affected area. Assess other possible causes.
9. Delay any esthetic restorations for 2 to 4 weeks after treatment.
10. Advise patient not to smoke, consume highly coloured, hot or cold foods or beverages for at least 2 days.
11. Treat any post-operative sensitivity with a desensitizing gel or toothpaste.
12. Prescribe Pola Day or Pola Night to maintain brightness if desired
1. HYDROGEN PEROXIDE 35%
2. DESENSITIZER-POTTASIUM NITRATE
INSTRUCTIONS FOR NON-VITAL TOOTH WHITENING:
1. Determine and record pre-operative shade. Please follow this Vita* shade guide arrangement according to degree of brightness:
2. Isolate tooth/teeth undergoing whitening using a rubber dam. Ensure the dam fits tightly at the cervical margin. Note: If a rubber dam is not used, cover approximately half of the adjacent vital teeth with 3-4mm thick layer of Gingival Barrier to insulate from heat discomfort of the curing light.This is done when one tooth is being whitened non-vitally.
3. Open lingual access to pulp chamber and remove all composite, base material and gutta percha 2-3 mm apical to the CE junction. Place a glass ionomer/zinc phosphate base, at least 1 mm thick to ensure a barrier between the “sealed” root canal and whitening gel.
4. Place the Pola Office+ gel into the opened pulp chamber and onto the labial surface.
5. Leave gel on/in for 8 min (Optional: curing light may be used at this stage, please refer to light manufactures recommendations) NOTE: If using a curing light and treating inner and outer surfaces, 2 curing lights can be used (one on each side of tooth) to activate Pola Office+.
6. Suction off the gel.
7. Repeat steps 4-6 until desired shade is achieved.
8. After the last application, suction and wash the gel off.
9. Record the final shade.
INSTRUCTIONS FOR VITAL TOOTH WHITENING
1. Determine and record pre-operative shade. Please follow this Vita* shade guide arrangement according to degree of brightness: B1•A1•B2•D2•A2•C1•C2•D4•A3•D3•B3•A3.5• B4•C3•A4•C4
2. Clean teeth with ONLY a flour based pumice.
3. Place cheek retractors and then cover exposed lip surface with petroleum gel.
4. Dry teeth and apply Gingival Barrier to both arches, slightly overlapping enamel and interproximal spaces.
5. Light cure in a fanning motion for 10-20 seconds until Gingival Barrier is cured.
6. Firmly attach a mixing nozzle to the Pola Office+ syringe away from patient. Dispense a small amount of gel on to a mixing pad until a uniform blue gel is extruded.
7. Using the nozzle as a guide, directly apply a thin layer of gel to all teeth undergoing treatment. A thin layer will help prevent the gel from running.
NOTE: It is best not to lift the nozzle when moving from tooth to tooth. Use a continuous motion.
8. Leave gel on for 8 minutes (Optional: a curing light may be used at this stage, please refer to light manufacturer’s recommendations).
9. Suction off using a surgical aspirator tip.
Note: It is normal for a residue layer of gel to remain on the surface of the teeth.
10. Repeat steps 7-9 three times (optional 4 times).
11.After the last application, suction all the gel off, then wash and apply suction.
12. Remove Gingival Barrier by lifting it from one end.
13. Record the final shade.
1. Store in a cool and out of direct sunlight at temperatures between (2°-25°C / 35°-77°F).
2. Do not use after expiration date.
