Benefits of a Power Toothbrush
Who are they suited for and what makes them stand out?
While many patients have their preference of which type of brush they prefer, power brushes can be suited for all types of patients. Power brushes or electric toothbrushes as they are often called can be easily adapted by those who have difficulty with motor skills, i.e. arthritis, carpal tunnel, small children, ect. The brush also helps aid in the correct pattern of which to brush as well as helping the patient to brush for the recommended two minutes. Power brushes assist in reaching areas that are sometimes missed in patients who have challenging mouths and the design of the brush handle can be more comfortable for most patients to use over a manual brush. While not all patients have tried and liked power brushes they are of personal preference from patient to patient.
Are You Using A Whitening Toothpaste?
Whitening mania is especially obvious in the toothpaste aisle. Just about every major brand now comes in special whitening formulas. There’s no doubt that whitening toothpastes can clean stains off teeth and give them a little extra gleam. But the term “whitening” is misleading. Whitening toothpastes have “polishers” as referred to by manufacturers. They often times leave the patient with slight to extreme sensitivity. These “polishers” that are in the toothpastes are very abrasive. It is the abrasiveness that aids in removing surface stains but also cause discomfort to some patients after continual use. Unlike in-office dental whitening systems and strips that can bleach deep within a tooth, toothpastes can reach only the surface. Also, bleaches in toothpastes are not very effective. They get rinsed away before they have time to make any effect on the tooth surface.
