Dispensing
1. Apply Remin Pro to the teeth with a finger or suitable instrument (toothbrush or swab) and distribute.
2. The patient should distribute the remaining Remin Pro in his or her mouth with the tongue. Remin Pro and the saliva should remain in the mouth for as long as possible (minimum of 3 minutes) for optimal results.
3. The patient should spit out the remaining amount. Rinsing should be avoided if possible. The patient should wait at least 30 minutes before eating or drinking.

Evaluation Team Feedback
The CPS evaluation team, consisting of 30 offices and more than 150 uses, gave Remin Pro a score of 4.5 diamonds. All felt this was a true comparison to MI Paste by GC America. When asked about the flavors and taste, most females liked the strawberry and males liked the mint. Several team members said they used the Remin Pro before and after whitening treatment. Several hygienists noted they never thought to place the Remin Pro on the enamel after cleanings to fill back in the tiniest surface lesions in the tooth, but patients said it tasted great and gave them a smooth feeling to their teeth. Four dentists said they gave it to several patients who had acid reflex to aid in protecting those sensitive areas at the gingival margins. One assistant said she gives Remin Pro to every patient that is in long-term provisionals. In all, every dental team member said they could continue to use Remin Pro. Several asked to have the material in a unidose and available in a caramel flavor, like the Profluorid L Varnish from VOCO.

CPS team gives the Remin Pro by VOCO a 4.5 diamond rating.
