do you have any experience with it?
I do not.
Would it be beneficial to use on my cat after his teeth cleaning?
Possibly. However, as Dr. Jean said, I'd first consider the other products.In addition, consider massaging bee propolis on the gums:

Dr. Jeff made several good suggestions. I like Teef! myself. Goes in drinking water, easy peasy.
I live in Denmark , have not hear about Teef. It i sold on Amazon ? It is for cats? My cats rarely drinks water. Maybe only 1-2 times at a week. And only a little little lick water.

Most anesthetic protocols are super safe nowadays. Was the last dental when he was 10 (and was this also done by the vet dental specialist?)? And when was the one prior to that (after the one he had at 3 years)?

Ah, but you probably will from here on! That way this can be your kitty's last dental.

You can also try things like hand scaling, using the NZ Deer Velvet oral spray, Proden Plaqueoff, etc. and see if that helps avoid the need for the dental.

@Dr. Jean Hofve, what say you?
How to give a cat the nz velvet spray, how much , how often ?

2 sprays twice a day is a good way to use this when there already is predisposition to FORL.

yes, healthy cats do not drink water, so putting anything in their water is not a good idea.
Can you gently rub the teeth with just your fingers?

I know from experience that just when I try to open his mouth, he doesn't really want to join in. So no, I haven't tried it, but I will try it slowly :)
