Disclosing solution - indispensable in modern prophylaxis

Disclosing teeth during the prophylaxis visit is an important part of treatment. The procedure serves as a self-check for the practitioner and also helps instruct and motivate the patient to include this type of check in his or her toothbrushing ritual.

Dental disclosing solution is available in both liquid and solid form (dental disclosing tablets). While the liquid disclosing solution is easily applied to teeth with an applicator during the actual prophylaxis treatment, the disclosing tablets are especially suitable for review at home. Colour changes on the teeth illustrate plaque and therefore cleaning deficits for the practitioner and the patient. The disclosing substance is a temporary dye with harmless food colouring (no erythrosine) that can easily be washed off the teeth. Another important aspect for allergy sufferers is to request gluten-free disclosing solutions, which are currently available.

Red or blue – new or old biofilm?

Stained anterior teeth revealing old and new plaque

Advanced, multi-colour formulas dye plaque deposits on tooth surfaces red or blue. The fresher and thus newer plaque on teeth turns red. Older plaque on teeth turns blue. This red or blue staining visually shows patients which areas have been neglected in at-home oral hygiene habits. Patients can better recognise their cleaning deficits with the help of the dyed biofilm. At the same time, this disclosing process gives the practitioner the opportunity to motivate patients to improve their daily cleaning habits.

Another positive side effect of disclosing during professional teeth cleaning and individual prophylaxis is that patients can monitor the improvement of their oral hygiene at regular check-ups.

Disclosing solutions designed for children, too

Children also benefit from tooth disclosing during prophylaxis treatment. This helps teach good oral hygiene at home in a fun way. The family can easily perform the disclosing process at home using disclosing tablets and can monitor the child’s cleaning technique.

The pleasant, fruity taste of the disclosing substance appeals to both small and large patients.

Frequently asked questions about dental disclosing solutions

How do I avoid colour splatter from the disclosing solution during prophylaxis treatment?

Ideally, the liquid disclosing solution is removed with a microbrush applicator. Thanks to the special consistency of their fibres, these special applicators securely pick up any type of liquid and carry it to its destination. The solution remains caught in the fibres of the applicator head without dripping until it’s applied to the tooth surface. This prevents unnecessary colour splatter or spray from the disclosing solution.

What tips can I give my patients for the correct use of disclosing tablets at home?

After chewing a disclosing tablet, patients should run their tongue thoroughly across all teeth to distribute the colour across all tooth surfaces. Then they should rinse their mouths out once with water and spit. The patient can now see where the teeth are covered with old biofilm (coloured blue) or new biofilm (coloured red). Now, brush the teeth thoroughly and floss to remove any staining.
