It should be used as required. It is generally used twice daily. Rinse the mouth thoroughly for about 1 minute with 10 ml of Dencure mouthwash. After rinsing, expel it from your mouth.
Q. What precautions should be followed while using Dencure?
Using toothpastes immediately after the mouthwash may interfere with working of mouthwash properly. Use it before the mouthwash or at a different time of the day. Always rinse your mouth before using the mouthwash.
