Savacol may cause reversible staining of the teeth and toothcoloured restorations. It may lead to increased tartar production and a temporary alteration in taste perception. Stains resulting from the use of Savacol will not adversely affect the health of your gums and can be removed by your dental professional. It is important to see your dentist for removal of any stain or tartar at least every six months or more frequently if your dentist advises.
