1/ Oral B genius with change of toothbrush head at least every 3 months

oral b genius dentist

It features the multiple cleaning modes like daily clean, sensitive and whitening. It has 3D cleaning movement for a basic, everyday clean. The battery charge lasts 12 days, and has a precise battery charge display.

It connects by bluetooth to your smart phone, with an Oral B app that gives guidance and feedback for improved brushing habits, as it detects where your tooth brush is positioned in your mouth. which allows you to see where you’re brushing so you can adjust your technique so you don't miss a zone, so you know your getting the best clean possible.that can be adjusted by your dentist, if you wish. The app can be downloaded on your smartphone and used with Bluetooth technology to get real-time feedback while you clean for improved brushing The built-in 2-minute timer helps you brush just the right amount, with a timer for each zone of your mouth.There is a smart travel case, which has a phone holder, to charge both your toothbrush and smartphone using only one outlet and at the same time. It has a smart ring all around it which is visible from every angle while brushing, and allows you to see feedback from the pressure indicator, brushing timer and bluetooth connection easily. The pressure sensor helps protect your gums from over-brushing. A band illuminates and the pulsations also slow, and then stop when you brush too hard, and if you are consistently seeing this, the brush handle can also be set to the sensitive mode.

TECHNIQUE

Brush for 2 minutes morning and night, never forget the night time clean and no snacking at all after, even a drink of milk.  Don't bother with the supermarket rechargeable electric toothbrushes, they break quickly and they're useless. Oral B Smart Series and Professional Care electric toothbrushes are recommended, with the Genius being the top of the range, and the toothbrushes below are recommended.

CHANGE THE TOOTHBRUSH HEAD EVERY 2 - 3 MONTHS

 

 
 

2/ Reach Access Flosser

Floss between all of the teeth with minty refill floss cartridges, without even putting your hand in your mouth and easily clean between the very back teeth. Bacteria and food particles hide in between the teeth and need to be disturbed by flossing them out everyday otherwise it can cause the jaw bone to be eaten away, and cavities.  Easy to use and refreshing.

Floss between all teeth after brushing teeth each night, making sure to move the floss against the tooth surfaces each side of the gaps to scrape off the plaque that sticks onto the teeth in these hard to reach areas. Brushing longer will never remove the plaque hiding in between the teeth and under the gum.

 
 


3/ Clinpro Tooth Creme Vanilla Mint by 3M is a specialist remineralising toothpaste but it's not for kids under 6 years of age.

4/ Tooth Mousse Plus by GC

A gold standard for strengthening teeth but it requires an extra step. You apply a pea sized amount of it after brushing and flossing and don't rinse out. Not suitable for anyone with a milk allergy.
It's good for sensitivity, teeth wearing away and helping to remineralise the teeth. It is only for children over 6 yrs of age. 

 
 

5/ Reduction of sugar intake and a healthy diet

Rare sugary treats and no addition of sugar or salt, mainly whole and unprocessed foods, and lots of fruit and vegetables. 

 

6/ Drinks lots of water

 

7/  Professional scale and clean, and dentist check each 6 months

Remove the stains and scale buildup called calculus, which cakes around the teeth and under the gums and lets bacteria thrive, to keep the gums and teeth as healthy as possible.

bitewing x-ray

Two yearly bitewing x-rays allow your dentist to check for stability and see under fillings, and in between the teeth, to check for decay, and to check that bacteria has not gotten under the gums and damaged the jaw bone around the teeth. If there are any early problem, your dentist can stabilise them, repair and manage you teeth and gums, before it becomes painful and unmanageable.

Even I can't tell exactly what is happening in my own mouth, without visiting the dentist, and I have been a dentist all of my life. (although I can floss them all in around 30 seconds).
