When you’re unsure if your child has brushed their teeth when asked, plaque disclosing tablets are a fantastic way to check up and monitor their brushing habits.
Disclosing tablets are used to make dental plaque visible. The tablets contain a dye (typically vegetable) that stains plaque a bright colour (usually red). Simply chew a tablet and rinse.
The idea is to continue brushing until there is no more coloured debris. It’s great for providing feedback to improve brushing technique.
Colgate and Curasept make some good ones available at the pharmacy or we also have some at the Studio.
