INSTRUCTIONS TO APPLY Wonderful Varnish (NaF 5%):

  1. Peel open the foil lidding material

  2. Remove brush and mix varnish until it reaches an even consistency  

  3. For best results, dry teeth prior to application by rubbing a 2x2 (or other disposable cotton sponge) along the tooth surfaces to remove any existing bio-film

  4. Apply a very thin coat of varnish evenly to all of the desired tooth surfaces

  5. Let the varnish dry for approximately 10 seconds and then instruct the patient to close their mouth

  6. Varnish hardens on contact with saliva so the patient may leave immediately after application

  7. When dry, any excess varnish may appear “spotty” and may slide off the tooth surface. This will not affect the efficacy of the product as there is still a full layer of varnish on the tooth

  8. It is recommended that the patient be instructed to only eat soft foods and drink cold liquids for two hours after treatment

CAUTION: Federal (U.S.A.) Law restricts the use of this device to sale by or on the order of a medical or dental professional. For use in the oral cavity.
