Gum Paints are not highly recommended take-home medications these day...... they tend to provide astringent action for the spongy gums, without treating the underlying cause...... please avoid self use of these agents..... if you have problem like spongy or bleeding gums, it is better to get a session of tooth cleaning followed by guidance about proper brushing technique for best gum health..... Regards.....

Hello did your dentist recommend to use gum paint or you personally want to use it. Usually 2-3 times for 10 min daily is recommended after you massage on your gums spit it out. For long duration usage it tends to dull your teeth.

Gum paint is to be applied and left for about 15 minutes. The extra spittle which you get may be spat out . After the said 15 mins. spit out all the paint and do not rinse with water or eat/drink anything for the next 30 minutes . Gum paints containing Chlorhexidine will stain teeth on prolonged usage . Rather than using gum paint - visit your dentist and get to the rooth of the problem you are facing. Thank you
