This medication is applied to teeth to prevent cavities. Fluoride is a mineral that works by making the teeth stronger and more resistant to decay caused by acid and bacteria.
Do not use this medication in children younger than 12 years unless directed to do so by your dentist/doctor.
Use this gel once daily or as directed by your dentist/doctor.
After brushing with toothpaste, apply this medication to your teeth and brush thoroughly. Allow the gel to remain on your teeth for 1 minute, then spit out. Try not to swallow the medication.
Carefully watch children during use to prevent repeated swallowing of the gel.
To get the most benefit, you should not eat, drink, or rinse your mouth for at least 30 minutes after using the gel.
Dosage is based on age and the amount of fluoride in your drinking water. Do not exceed the recommended dose without checking with your dentist/doctor. Doing so will not do more to prevent cavities but may lead to side effects instead.
Use this medication regularly to get the most benefit from it. To help you remember, use it at the same time each day.
Do not treat this medication like a normal toothpaste: do not use it more often than prescribed, or just to brush your teeth.
Temporary staining of the teeth may occur. Brushing may control these stains, which can be removed by your dental professional. If this effect persists or worsens, tell your dentist or doctor promptly.
Tell your dentist/doctor right away if you notice any changes in the color or appearance of your teeth. These effects may be a result of too much fluoride.
