Disclosing Tablets

Disclosing tablets will show where plaque is on your teeth., by colouring them. You can then remove this with your toothbrush to achieve clean teeth.

A little Vaseline or lip salve will help prevent colouring on the lips.

  • Break up the tablet by chewing.

  • Swish around your mouth vigorously and run your tongue around your teeth to aid coverage.

  • Rinse out thoroughly with water. Pink will indicate new plaque, purple indicates old plaque.

  • Use your toothbrush to clean all the areas of teeth that have been stained.

Tablets contain natural vegetable dyes.
