Caphosol is very easy to use and comes in two different coloured ampoules. One ampoule contains the phosphate ions and the other contains the calcium ions. You need to mix the two ampoules together before swishing.1 You can use Caphosol along side other treatments, as there are no known interactions with other therapies but ideally other treatments should not be mixed with Caphosol®.

You can use Caphosol between 4 and 10 times each day depending on the condition of your mouth. You should avoid using other mouth rinses, eating and drinking for at least 15 minutes after swishing Caphosol.
