Self-Examination for Dental Plaque
After you use the disclosing tablets, your mouth and tongue may be temporarily stained for as long as a day with a harmless dye. Many people use the disclosing tablets at bedtime so that the stain left in their mouths can fade overnight.
Some disclosing tablets make a bright red stain, which can stain clothing.
Be sure to read the package instructions. Some disclosing products have dyes that people may be allergic to.
