Levsin / Prevident 5000


At your appointment you were given 1 tablet to be taken before your next appointment. This medication is designed to dry the mouth, making it easier to keep the teeth dry while appliances are being placed. You should know the following:

  • Contact lenses should not be worn in conjunction with this medication since it may also reduce tear production.
  • Place the pill under the tongue and allow it to dissolve.
  • Take at least 1 hour before appointment. You may eat a light meal before you take the pill but do not eat or drink anything after taking the pill.
  • Over the counter medication can be taken in conjunction with Levsin (hyoscyamine-sulfate).

Prevident 5000

Prevident 5000 is prescription level fluoride toothpaste, which Dr. Defay recommends that all patients use while in treatment.  The fluoride makes the enamel of the tooth stronger and more resistant to decay and decalcification.
