There are certain facts about fluoride toothpaste that you need to understand before you begin using it every day. Read the information below carefully:

  • Since Fluoride Toothpaste has high fluoride content you should avoid other fluoride medicines such as tablets, drops, chewing gum, gels or varnishes, fluoridated water or salt, etc when using it.
  • Talk to your dentist about the total intake required to prevent the build-up of fluoride.
  • Inform your dentist about any other medicines that you might be taking. This includes medicines obtained over-the-counter.
  • Avoid taking fluoridated water and salt while using this toothpaste.
  • If you consume food and drink immediately after brushing your teeth with fluoride toothpaste, it may reduce the amount of tooth remineralisation. So make sure you brush your teeth after meals not before.

Fluoride toothpaste is unsuitable for:

  • people who are allergic to sodium fluoride or any of the other ingredients present in this formula
  • a child aged 10 years and less

Follow the instructions exactly as described in the patient information leaflet or your prescription.

The steps of use are as mentioned below:

  • Cover your toothbrush with a 1 cm ribbon of toothpaste.
  • Brush from the gum to the tip of your teeth in a vertical motion.
  • Spit out the excess foam and be careful not to swallow it.
  • Brush carefully for one minute both in the morning and evening.
  • For best results, avoid drinking or rinsing your mouth for 30 minutes after brushing.

In case you swallow an excessive amount of fluoride toothpaste accidentally and begin experiencing digestive problems including sickness, diarrhoea, and stomach or abdomen pain consult a doctor immediately.

Consistent swallowing of too much of the toothpaste may result in stained or speckled tooth enamel and enamel fragility, or increased bone density, or osteosclerosis (bone fluorosis).

If you miss using the Fluoride Toothpaste once, do it as soon as you remember. Avoid doubling the dose to make up for a missed dose. Instead, continue as usual after the next meal. If you need any further clarifications regarding this medicinal toothpaste talk to your doctor, dentist, or pharmacist.
