Accent Paste is a medicated desensitising Paste that contains Potassium nitrate in a pleasantly flavored base. It protects against sensitivity, fights cavities and plaque, fights gum problems and strengthens tooth enamel. It is indicated in sensitivity due to attrition and abrasion (wear and tear of teeth), natural gum recession (lowering down of gums from their natural level) or post scaling recession, abrasion on the neck of the tooth, bad breath and teeth prone to decay. Potassium nitrate blocks the nerve that carries the message of pain to the brain due to sensitivity. This protects the tooth and prevents the feeling of pain when eating and drinking. This paste should be used on a regular basis for at least one month to get the maximum benefit. Also massage some of the paste onto the sensitive areas after brushing. Directions for use: Brush properly twice daily for two minutes with this paste and don't rinse after brushing for at least 30 minutes as it needs some time to work. By spitting thoroughly instead of rinsing your mouth with water after brushing, the thin coating of paste remains on your teeth and provide the relief it is designed give you. Use under medical supervision.
