Self-topical neutral fluoride gel containing 1.1% sodium fluoride for use as a dental caries preventive in pediatric patients and adults. This prescription product is not a dentifrice.
Active Ingredient: Sodium fluoride 1.1% (w/v)
Inactive Ingredient: Purified water, sorbitol solution 70%, hydroxyethylcellulose, pluronic F-127, flavor, sodium saccharin, methyl paraben, titanium dioxide, propylparaben, certified dyes (FD&C Red #40 In Bing Cherry and Very Berry flavors, FD&C Blue #1 in Fresh Mint flavor)
Frequent topical applications to the teeth with preparations having a relatively high fluoride content increase tooth resistance to acid dissolution and enhance penetration of the fluoride ion into tooth enamel.
INDICATIONS AND USAGE
A dental caries preventive, for once daily self-applied topical use. PreviDent® Brush-On Gel in a squeeze-tube is easily applied onto a toothbrush as well as a mouthpiece tray. This prescription dental gel should be used once daily following use of a regular toothpaste unless otherwise instructed by your dental professional. May be used in areas where drinking water is fluoridated since topical fluoride cannot produce fluorosis. (See WARNINGS for exception.)
General: Not for systemic treatment. DO NOT SWALLOW.
Allergic reactions and other idiosyncrasies have been rarely reported.
DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION:
Follow these instructions unless otherwise instructed by your dental professional:
- After brushing thoroughly with toothpaste, rinse as usual. Adults and pediatric patients 6 years of age or older, apply a thin ribbon of gel to the teeth with a toothbrush or mouth trays once daily for at least one minute, preferably at bedtime.
- After use, adults expectorate gel. For best results, do not eat, drink or rinse for 30 minutes. Pediatric patients, age 6-16, expectorate gel after use and rinse mouth thoroughly.
