Oral hygiene is not only cleaning the teeth

Cleaning teeth is not as easy as it seems. The occasional implementation of dental hygiene is important. Even oral cavity has its nooks where is it hard to get with a normal toothbrush. It has its sensitivity, which needs the right hardness of the brush and the appropriate composition of pastes and mouthwashes. It has its special tools required for effective cleaning and treatment of various oral diseases such as periodontitis or detecting of tooth necks.

Nowadays, the concept of single toothbrush, interdental toothbrush or mouthwash is not anything new. Yet in the offices we meet with clients who do not know how and on what to use them. They are unaware that hard brush in the hands of the inconsiderate patient may cause damage to the soft and hard tissues and that some of the paste can significantly affect oral health.
