Instructions for Prescription Strength Fluoride to Reduce Sensitivity

1) Clean mouth as instructed: Brush, Floss. 

2) Apply Perio-Med gel directly to teeth with toothbrush, finger, or Q-tip; concentrating on exposed root surfaces and along gumline.  Do not dilute.

3) Do not rinse; spit out excess gel.

4) Leave undisturbed for at least 30 minutes, or overnight.

5) Use daily until sensitivity decreases.

6) Use 2-4 times per week to prevent return of sensitivity; if sensitivity returns resume daily treatment.  Be careful to brush very gently on root surfaces with non-abrasive “sensitive” toothpaste.  Toothbrush abrasion will increase sensitivity!
