Choosing a Toothbrush
Never before has there been such a dizzying array of toothbrushes on the market. Consumers are inundated with new designs, materials, attachments, and colors. Whatever toothbrush design you choose, the most important thing is that you use the toothbrush at least 2-3 times a day. Moreover, how long you spend brushing your teeth is as critical as how often you brush. The Fresh Smiles team recommends that you spend 2-3 minutes brushing. This ensures complete plaque removal in hard to reach areas.
Mechanical and manual toothbrushes
Our dental team highly recommends the Rotadent rotary toothbrush to improve the condition of your teeth and gums with ENHANCED PLAQUE REMOVAL microaccess technology. Plaque bacteria threatens your teeth, gums, restorative and cosmetic work, potentially even your overall health.The Rotadent toothbrush attacks plaque with microfilaments that access hard-to-reach areas standard bristles may miss and "sweeps" out harmful bacteria below the gum line. It gently and effectively removes plaque and stains, controls gingivitis and reduces bleeding sites. The Rotadent is also great for helping to eliminate decalcification or "white spots" that can form around brackets and protect against gingivitis during orthodontic treatment. This product is only available through dental professionals. Please ask our dental team at your next visit for more information!
