HOME FLUORIDE TRAY INSTRUCTIONS
Because of your need to prevent or control dental decay (caries) or to reduce tooth sensitivity, our office
has recommended the use of custom-fit tray(s) to apply fluoride to your teeth daily. From well
documented research and from our own observations over many years, we know that use of these trays
and fluoride will prevent new decay almost totally and will slow down currently present decay.
Additionally, regular use will desensitize sensitive root surfaces. However, you must be consistent in
carrying out the following described procedures daily, just before going to bed.
•
Near bedtime, brush your teeth well and floss them. Follow through on any additionally prescribed
cleaning methods that we have recommended, such as a proxy brush or rubbertip. You may do this
procedure earlier in the evening, but do not eat or drink after the treatment until the next morning.
•
Place about 6 small drops of ClinPro 5000 into each tray, spacing the drops equally around the tray.
This is a medication that requires a prescription. If you need more of the ClinPro 5000, you may
stop by the office anytime to purchase more or we can give you a written script to take to your
pharmacy or we would be happy to phone in a renewal to the pharmacy of your choosing.
•
Place the tray(s) over your teeth and seat them correctly. They are not interchangeable and only
the upper tray will fit on the upper teeth and only the lower tray will fit on the lower teeth.
•
Wear the trays for 5 minutes. Do not drink or eat with the trays in your mouth.
•
After 5 minutes, remove the trays carefully and expectorate any fluoride from your teeth. Wash the
tray(s) with water. You may want to use your toothbrush to help remove any residual blue fluoride.
•
Place your washed trays upside down in the container provided to let them drain and dry before the
next use. Put the container in a convenient place and out of reach of children and pets.
•
Please continue this therapy indefinitely.
