Disclosing tablets are an excellent, harmless dental product that gives parents peace of mind that their children are effectively brushing their teeth.
They are small brightly coloured tablets containing vegetable dye that when chewed after brushing reveal any remaining plaque on the tooth surfaces that has been missed with the brush.
They are ideal for teenagers to use before undergoing orthodontic treatment as the teeth must be kept spotlessly clean once the brace has been fitted. If effective tooth brushing is not maintained during the orthodontic treatment the risk of needing fillings due to tooth decay is much higher.
You can buy disclosing tablets here at Creative Smiles or at most chemists.
