Oral hygiene instruction

Optimal oral hygiene is very important for all treatment outcomes and will be emphasized through-out all treatment phases. Oral hygiene together with professional cleanings can prevent most periodontal disease developments and reverse early stages of the disease (gingivitis).

Follow the individualized home care instructions provided to you by your dental professional.

Use a soft-bristle brush and a fluoride toothpaste. Replace your brush about every three months.

Brush 2-3 times a day. On outer and inner surfaces, brush at a 45-degree angle in short, circular strokes against the gum-line. On chewing surfaces, hold the brush flat and brush back and forth. On inside surfaces of front teeth, tilt brush vertically and use gentle up and down strokes.

Floss 1 time a day between teeth, behind the last tooth, around implants and below the gum-line. Let the floss slide gently. Do not cut your gum.

Additional aids such as powered toothbrush, interdental brush, toothpick, floss holder, floss threader, tongue-scraper, oral irrigator or mouth-wash may be useful.

You can clean your tongue in few, gentle sweeping motions to freshen your breath.

You may experience sore or bleeding gums the first week. If this continues call your dental professional.
