How to use?
Gently brush your teeth in a circular motion and then rinse your mouth until your spit is totally clear.
If you have had issues with enamel erosion in the past, then smear it out on your teeth, let it sit for 5-10 minutes and rinse your mouth until the water is clear. The effect will be the same as brushing, it's just a more gentle approach, takes a little more time and a gives you a few extra minutes of quietness.
