Maxi Guard Oral Cleansing Gel (it's not a paste)is made by Addison
Biological Laboratory, Fayette, Missouri. That's all it says on the
bottle, so I have no phone number or address to give you.

This stuff claims one doesn't need to brush with it, just apply it to
the teeth. Of course brushing with it is OK and gives better
results. It's a two-part deal that you mix after purchase. A bottle
of gel and a capsule of ascorbic acid.

I use it on a small piece of gauze wrapped around a finger, rubbing
it on their teeth. The gauze provides a little abrasion and I think
helps more than just putting the gel on their teeth. Some people use
a piece of old (but clean!) pantyhose.
