Tooth brushing is the key part of any oral hygiene routine. Whether you choose to brush with a powered brush or manual brush brushing every surface of each tooth will remove around 60-70% of the plaque biofilm from the teeth. Ensure thorough cleaning around the gum margins where tooth and gum meet as this is the area where the bacteria in the plaque biofilm can irritate and cause bleeding (inflammation). To clean the other 30- 30% of the plaque use some form of interdental cleaning. What is best depends on the size and shape of the space between teeth. You may need more than one tool to clean between teeth, or a variety of sizes. This is best assessed by your dental team or GS coach. Why not take Time Out for Teeth – our online oral health coaching service where a GS coach can help you identify what is best and easiest for you to use.
