For years dentists have known the benefits of disclosing tablets. What are they?
Disclosing tablets contain a harmless coloured dye that is attracted to the plaque on your teeth. Their use is simple:
- Take a tablet, chew it up and swish the accumulated saliva in your mouth for 60 seconds, spit and rinse.
- Now the disclosing tablet dye has coloured the plaque on your teeth allowing you to easily see areas that need special attention.
- The dye should be removed from all surfaces of all teeth.
Plaque disclosing tablets are available from reception.
