Description

We now have two options of dental finger shield to protect your finger and help keep the mouth open when brushing teeth for someone else. Perfect for carers.

The Bedi shield and the Dentocare shield. Simple and easy to use. Images show both small and large hands with finger shield on. Use on a finger where it is snug and comfortable.

The shield allows oral care to be carried out quickly and effectively for a n other without risk of a finger being bitten. It helps to ‘prop’ the mouth open while toothbrushing.

Safe, secure fit for the finger. Comfortable support for the person receiving oral care.

Slide onto  finger and place shielded finger into one side of the mouth  resting between upper and lower teeth. Standing behind or to the side, support head brush all surfaces of teeth around gum line – outside, inside and biting surface. Switch hands to brush the opposite side of the mouth. We recommend using the toothbrush dry with a pea sized blob of fluoride toothpaste. Spread the toothpaste around all teeth then brush. If cleaning between teeth – do this BEFORE toothbrushing. Encourage the patient to spit out but don’t rinse all the toothpaste away after brushing. Let the active ingredients in the toothpaste to work for as long as possible. e.g. fluoride.

 

Care – one shield per person. Wash with soap and water after use.

If you are a carer and require help/training to care to provide oral health care we recommend Knowledge Oral Health Care.
