Gum Disclosing Aids

Gum disclosing aids give patients a clear visible indication of the areas of their teeth that are not being adequately cleaned. The product comes in both tablet and liquid form. The disclosing tablets come in individually wrapped cherry tablets. The liquid is also cherry flavored. They are non-toxic. Once a tablet is chewed or the liquid is applied, the areas of remaining bacterial plaque will be highlighted in red. Instruction can then be given for better oral care, such as brushing and using dental floss more effectively. The disclosing aid should not be swallowed. Gum disclosing aids are primarily used for children, but they can be beneficial for people of all ages. Gum disclosing tablets are made by Sunstar America Inc.
