5 BASIC STEPS FOR COMPLETE DAILY ORAL HYGIENE

Dentaid News

31 May 2016

Daily oral cleaning is very important for health as it prevents the build up of oral biofilm and thus caries and periodontal disease. Hence, it is key to tell patients about good hygiene techniques that provide peak oral health and personalised care, as well as recommending quality products.

1. Use a quality toothbrush with filaments with rounded ends to effectively remove dental biofilm while caring for the gums. Choose the brush best suited to the needs of each patient, using proper brushing technique.

2. Choose a toothpaste specifically formulated to prevent and/or treat different oral conditions according to each patient's needs.

3. Conduct thorough interproximal cleaning.
• Dental flosses and tapes (narrow interdental spaces).
• Interproximal brushes + interproximal gel (wide interdental spaces).
• Water flossers.

Brushing cleans 60% of the tooth's surface
At least twice a day for 2 minutes
Interproximal hygiene cleans the remaining 40% of the tooth's surface

4. Remember to clean your tongue with a tongue cleaner designed to scrape off the oral biofilm deposited on the back of the tongue, where bacteria produce smelly gases.

5. Rinse with a mouthwash that complements the action of the toothpaste, preferably from the same range, to reach inaccessible areas.
