This initial time you dispense from a new bottle, gently lift upward on the nozzle to break the protective seal (thin plastic located adjacent to trigger). If this seal is broken do not use the product.
Shake bottle vigorously for 3-4 seconds prior to dispensing.
Invert bottle 180 degree with nozzle tip pointed downward into tray.
Place nozzle tip close to the tray floor and at one end of the tray arch. Moving from one end of the tray to the other in one fluid motion, slowly press down on the trigger.
Dispense foam into applicator tray. (Note: foam will expand slightly to fill the tray.)
Immediately place trays in mouth. (Do not fill trays with foam too far in advance of treatment as the foam will collapse and not be as effective.)
Have patient bite down on the trays lightly but firmly for 4 minutes.
Remove trays and have patient expectorate excess.
Instruct patient not to eat, drink, or rinse for at least 30 minutes.
For optimal tooth coverage, use a fluoride applicator tray which is deep enough to reach the entire vertical height of all teeth (even the molars)
