We try to keep up with brushing our dogs teeth several times a week. Still, plaque and tartar build up.

I found a product online called "Taxi-Groom"... and thought it might be a good companion to brushing.

The product info reads as follows: "Simply use Q tip for application directly from 1oz bottle to surface of tooth and watch stains decompose and disappear. Where disclosing (Pink) solution remains rub area till pink is gone and tooth is white again. Especially prepared for use by the grooming profession for removal of scale, plaque, calcium incrustation and mucin stains from the teeth of animals.

Are products such as this safe and effective as promised?
