Aids in the prevention of dental decay


  • This is a fluoride preventive treatment gel, not a toothpaste. Read directions carefully before using.
  • Keep out of reach of children. If more than used for brushing is accidentally swallowed, get medical help or contact a Poison Control Center right away.
  • This product may produce surface staining of the teeth. Adequate tooth brushing may prevent these stains which are not harmful or permanent and may be removed by your dentist.

  • Adults and children 6 years of age and older: Use a pea-sized (.25g) dose once a day after brushing your teeth with a toothpaste. Apply the gel to your teeth and brush thoroughly. Allow the gel to remain on your teeth for 1 minute and then spit out. Do not swallow the gel. Do not eat or drink for 30 minutes after brushing. Instruct children under 12 years of age in the use of this product (to minimize swallowing). Supervise children as necessary until capable of using without supervision.
  • Children under 6 years of age: Consult a dentist or doctor.
