Recommend thorough brushing for 2 minutes after use of GUM RED-COTE tables to remove discolouration.
Discolouration may persist in hard-to-reach areas for a short period of time.
GUM RED-COTE Tablets are composed of food ingredients and are therefore unlikely to pose any risk if ingested.
However, GUM RED-COTE Tablets were not developed for edible use.
Recommend GUM RED-COTE Tablets starting at 6 years of age.
GUM RED-COTE Tablets are not recommended for younger children as they may be unable to follow ingestion instructions.
The food-grade red dyes in GUM RED-COTE Tablets colour the bacterial cells that form plaque.
The red dye accumulates in the plaque giving it the desired colouration to help your patients identify which areas of the mouth to focus on when brushing.
The ingredients in GUM RED-COTE Tablets that colour plaque and help identify it are: D&C red #28 (CI 45410) & FD&C blue #1 (CI 42090).
The dye can be easily removed with brushing.
