CariFree Rinse Instructions

CariFree RinseTake Home Protocol for Dr. Lynn Jones

Dr. Jones has determined that you are at risk for getting cavities based on the level of cavity-causing bacteria in your mouth and/or other risk factors.  The protocol recommended below will not only significantly decrease the bacteria, it will also help to prevent them from repopulation by promoting a healthy environment.  Please follow these recommendations as closely as possible to get the best result. The overall 3 month protocol is: 2 weeks of CTx4 Treatment Rinse, 10 weeks of CTx3 Rinse, and a return to the office for follow up bacterial screening swab if indicated.

CTx4 Treatment Rinse

First, brush and floss thoroughly.  Then, shake both bottles and combine 5ml each of A and B Rinse in the mixing cup provided for a total volume of 10ml.  Rinse/swish for a full minute and then spit all of the rinse out.

Dr. Jones may advise you to rinse with water after using the Treatment Rinse, or to slightly dilute the Rinse with water if that makes the taste more tolerable, however, not rinsing with water improves effectiveness. 

Once you have completed your CTx4 Treatment Rinse regimen, begin using the CariFree CTx3 Rinse immediately.


First, brush and floss thoroughly.  Rinse with 10ml of the solution for a full minute and then spit. Wait thirty minutes before eating or drinking anything to allow for maximum effectiveness of the Fluoride and Xylitol. Once a bottle is open it expires within 1-2 months.  The product does not contain any acidic preservatives used by other manufacturers to increase shelf life.  The absence of those preservatives allows the product to be at a health promoting pH.

If you want, you can use these products twice a day, morning and night, for increased effectiveness.
