HOW IMPORTANT IS A QUALITY TOOTHBRUSH AS AN INDISPENSABLE TOOL IN DAILY ORAL HYGIENE? WHY WOULD YOU RECOMMEND IT?

Under debate

27 Sep 2014

The importance of brushing teeth after every meal is common knowledge, but unfortunately, this is not enough. Besides proper use of the wide range of products existing on the market, the quality of such products is essential, as our oral health partially depends on this. 

"Depending on the patient and our goal, we recommend one type of brush or another"
Juan Antonio Copano, Dentist. Cadiz 

"Depending on the disease or treatment regime it is extremely important which type of brush is used. Depending on the patient and our goal, we recommend one type of brush or another; for example for patients with implants, we suggest angular, sulcular or soft brushes; for patients who press hard when brushing, we recommend medium strength toothbrushes in order to avoid recession and soft tissue damage". 

"The quality of a toothbrush is crucial for good oral hygiene. Today, thanks to DENTAID, who offers an assortment of products, we can explain diverse brushing techniques depending on each patient's needs". 

"The quality of a toothbrush is essential for biofilm removal and for preventing tissue damage"
Silvia Martín Serrano, Dental Hygienist. Badajoz 

"The shape of the handle and the bristles can significantly increase the effectiveness of a brush. If we use an adequate brush for every oral circumstance we experience throughout our lives - surgery, braces, periodontal problems, childhood...-, we will be able to maintain our oral health." 

"In over twenty years in the practice, I have been able to compare the different brushes on the market, and I have noticed the clear differences in quality and effectiveness that they present. For me, the toothbrush is a basic tool for my patients, and within the VITIS® product line, the brush that best suits each oral situation is fundamental, because for prevention to yield results, we must focus on brushing technique and hygiene tools in light of every patient's needs". 

"I normally recommend quality toothbrushes to my patients so that their oral hygiene can be at its best".
Juan José López Collantes, Dentist, and Pepi Domínguez Peña, Dental Hygienist. Seville 

"When a patient uses a quality brush, not only do they achieve good oral hygiene, but this also helps to prevent gums from becoming inflamed, from gingival discomfort and bacterial plaque from building up. We tend to recommend VITIS® for its wide range of brushes, which adapt to each patient type, and for their quality". 

"We also encourage our patients to not forget about their oral hygiene and to be aware of its importance. We recommend the best brushing technique, while stressing the importance of renewing brushes regularly". 

“It is important to keep in mind that what removes dental plaque is the toothbrush"
Isabel Escudero Otero, Dental Hygienist. Alicante 

"We must keep in mind and tell our patients that what removes dental plaque is the toothbrush, not the toothpaste or mouthrinses; the role of brushing is essential". 

"In order for our dental and gingival hygiene to be adequate, we must consider the quality of the brush we are going to use. It must be ergonomic, manufactured using quality materials, and it must adapt to the individual needs of each patient. Using a brush that is in poor condition can therefore cause lesions to enamel (brushing abrasion) and to gums (gingival recession)". 

"Proper brushing technique using a high quality toothbrush is essential for keeping teeth and gums healthy"
Susana Cuesta Frechoso, Dentist. Gijon 

"Not all toothbrushes are equal. A toothbrush must effectively remove bacterial plaque and be gentle on gums and tooth enamel. In order for a toothbrush to do so, they must meet special requirements in relation to the materials of which it is made and specific manufacturing regulations". 

"Some brushes have irregularities on the end of their filaments, potentially causing microtrauma on tooth surfaces and on gums. A quality brush must have end-rounded filaments made of high quality nylon that are polished to follow the gum line and facilitate entry into interproximal spaces; diamond-shaped brush head and a narrow neck to allow access to hard-to-reach areas; anatomic handle that adapts to your hand for a better grip and to prevent brushing too hard; and a protective cap to keep the brush in the best hygienic conditions".
