Can I use an electric toothbrush with Livionex Dental Gel?
You can use an electric or manual brush with Livionex. If you are using an electric brush, we suggest that before switching the brush on, use it to spread the dental gel on all your teeth, and then switch on and brush like you normally do. This is so that you don’t use up the (pea size) gel on the first couple of teeth.
How does Livionex Dental Gel taste?
Livionex uses real peppermint oil for flavoring. It is a mild mint flavor because too much peppermint starts tasting bitter. Livionex contains no artificial ingredients. Do remember that you are buying Livionex for its cleaning power. If you really want a strong aftertaste, we suggest that after brushing, you use a mouthwash of your choice.
How does Livionex Dental Gel work?
Dental plaque is a bacterial biofilm. It is constantly forming on your teeth, making them dirty, dull in appearance, and making your breath smell bad. You can feel it as “fuzz” when you run your tongue over your teeth. In contrast, after a professional cleaning your teeth will feel really slick and clean to your tongue.
Plaque sticks to your teeth like glue, making it extremely difficult to remove. Livionex is specially-designed to clean teeth without scrubbing the tooth surface with abrasives, detergents, or antimicrobials. It’s a clean you can feel.
I noticed it doesn’t foam. Does that mean it isn’t working?
Foaming action comes from detergents. Livionex Dental Gel contains no detergents, and also does not contain abrasives like silica. You will enjoy a gentle foam-free and abrasive-free brushing experience that feels lighter in your mouth and provides a long-lasting clean you can see and feel.
What are the ingredients in Livionex Dental Gel?
Aqua, Sulfonylbismethane, Edathamil, Stevia, Peppermint, Menthol, FD&C Blue 1, Natural gums and stabilizers. It contains no glutens or glycerin.

Do you have usage instructions?
Livionex Dental Gel does not contain any abrasives or soaps. It is so gentle that it is soluble in water.
Follow these simple instructions while brushing with the dental gel:
- Wet your brush before applying the gel. Then put it directly in your mouth. That is, don’t wet the brush with the gel on it because it will dissolve,
- While brushing, you might notice the absence of foam in your mouth. That is normal, because there is no soap in the Livionex Dental Gel.
- Brush normally
- Rinse like you normally would after brushing.
- We recommend spreading the gel on all your teeth with the brush, before starting to brush.
How long should I leave the Livionex Dental Gel in my mouth?
Livionex works hard while you are brushing. For best results, we suggest brushing twice a day for two minutes, and then rinsing out like you normally do. Keeping it longer in your mouth will not make your teeth cleaner.

Store the tube on its grey cap to allow the dental gel to be at the tip. Then to dispense, tilt the tube sideways, open the cap and press the tube gently.
Sometimes the gel rolls off the toothbrush, how do I prevent that?
There are two remedies for this. After putting a pea size of the dental gel on your brush, don’t tilt the toothbrush. Alternatively, you can squeeze the dental gel into the bristles of the brush, and that will prevent it from rolling off.
Are there any side effects to accidentally swallowing it?
None. While swallowing is not recommended, all ingredients in Livionex Dental Gel are 100% ingestible.

It is the result of over a decade of intense research by the Livionex team in collaboration with top US universities. Livionex Dental Gel contains the most effective, highest quality, safest ingredients available.
How long will a tube of Livionex Dental Gel last?
A pea-size amount is enough for one brushing. If you brush twice a day, a single tube should be enough to deliver great results for 6 weeks. When using the LIVFREE pump, 3 clicks of the pump provide the exact amount needed per brushing.
How can I get the last bit out of a nearly empty tube?
When you are getting close to running out, simply store the tube in an upright position with the cap down between uses. This will allow you to completely empty it. And it’s a great reminder to order more!
How about discounts?
Yes. Just ask your dentist or hygienist for a professional discount code. If they don’t have one, ask them to email us at info@Livionex.com. They can also go the website and follow instructions to register as a dental professional. There is no charge for the code to the dental professional.

How do I know if I have gingivitis or periodontitis?
Unfortunately, oral disease is highly likely for most of us, even while brushing regularly with traditional toothpaste. Statistically, over 90% of all adults in the US have gingivitis and according to the UC CDC (Centers For Disease Control) 47% of US adults have periodontitis, a serious gum disease. The only way to be sure is to consult your dental professional. Please read the Oral Health Basics section for more details about these diseases.
What can I do to avoid getting gingivitis/periodontitis?
An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. While lifestyle, eating habits, frequency of brushing, genetics and other factors affect oral health, keeping your mouth as free of plaque as possible will reduce your chances of getting gum disease.
