When used as directed, stannous fluoride aids in the prevention of dental caries and builds increasing protection against painful sensitivity due to cold, heat, sweets, or contact.

  • Fluoride is most effective on clean, plaque-free teeth. Brush and floss thoroughly.
  • Place gel on a clean, dry toothbrush.
  • Brush thoroughly for one minute working the gel into all surfaces of the teeth and spaces.
  • Swish the fluoride in your mouth, forcing it between the teeth, for an additional minute.
  • Spit well. Do NOT swallow.
  • Do NOT rinse, eat, or drink for 30 minutes.

The fluoride gel is to be used:

  • Once per day for caries prevention
  • Twice per day for hypersensitivity control and prevention

Please do not hesitate to call Dr. Morrison if you have any questions or concerns.
