Typical bleaching gels are too thick to penetrate rapidly into the tiny spaces around enamel rods. This is why you spend hours applying any typical bleaching product. In fact, in many ways this very long contact time is also the major reason for tooth sensitivity that results from the procedure.
On the other hand, the formula used in Power Swabs® is made of an extremely thin liquid that is thickened with air and foam. Therefore, as the foam collapses back into a thin liquid, it penetrates very rapidly into enamel. There is no need for trays or strips to hold the product in place. All that is needed is that you or your patients apply Power Swabs® onto teeth for about 30 seconds per arch just before any traditional bleaching product is applied.

Power Swabs® F.A.C.T.™ Technology is the Key:F.A.C.T.™ stands for "foaming action cleaning technology" and Power Swabs® is the first product in the field of tooth whitening that utilizes the Laws of Mass Action Cleaning. FACT™ Technology applies all eight factors to the problem of cleaning and whitening teeth: time, temperature, action, solvents, surfactants, detergents, saponifiers and chelators. All aspects must be at equilibrium in order to optimize the cleaning and whitening of any surface, whether it's teeth or even clothing. In fact, just like laundry pre-treaters, the Power Swabs® Stain-Out Swabs™ contain all eight classifications of ingredients, not just one or two found in other tooth bleaching systems. This all-inclusive approach is the basis for F.A.C.T.™ Technology and ultimately results in sparkling cleaned, pain-free, whiter teeth with minimal to no sensitivity.
