How to use the tooth brush:
  • 3 times a day for 3 minutes each time.
  • Medium hardness brush and apply without much pressure.
  • Changing the toothbrush every three months.
  • Tilt the brush so that the ends of the bristles penetrate the terminal area and massage the gums.
  • Repeat the procedure for each group of teeth that covers the brush.
Dental floss:
  • Daily use to prevent cavities and periodontal disease.
  • Slide in until below the gum about 3 mm from the tooth separation. That is optimal to remove bacteria.
  • In each and every tooth separation. Slide in both adjacent teeth.
  • Every teeth means to even floss the outer face of the final molar.
  • Would be best at least once daily before bedtime.
  • Keep a minute mouth and then spit out without flushing the mouth with water.
  • Containing Triclosan is ideal.
In periodontal patients, the toothpaste should contain triclosan and fluoride, ideally.
Interdental Brushes:

Ideal for patients with wide interdental spaces. The ideal size for each interdental space is the one that does not slide in forcefully but with a little resistance. Long handle to facilitate last teeth.

Super-floss (type of floss):

Necessary in cases of patients with orthodontic retainers and fixed prosthesis fixed on teeth or implants.

  • It has two different ends, one rigid and the other, sponge-like for flossing.
  • The rigid end acts as a guide and is introduced below retainers, arcs or prothesis.
  • The spongy portion should slide to the teeth or implants and drag the attached plaque or food debris.
