STEP 3 - TOOTHBRUSHING
Oral B IO
This toothbrush provides microvibrations of sonic toothbrushes whilst also having an oscillating-rotating head which means it is much less technique sensitive. It also has a pressure sensor and a light to indicate you are brushing at the correct pressure level.

DO NOT USE WHITENING/CHARCOAL TOOTHPASTES AS THEY ARE DESIGNED TO BE ABRASIVE
When using a rechargeable electric toothbrush, it isn't necessary to press hard or scrub. Simply guide the brush while it provides the brushing action. In fact, some electric toothbrushes have pressure sensors that alert you when you’re brushing too hard.
1. Make sure your toothbrush is charged. Many electric toothbrushes have charge level indicator lights, so you can actually see when the toothbrush is charged.
2. Start with the outside surfaces of the teeth. Guide the brush head slowly from tooth to tooth, holding the brush head in place for a few seconds against each tooth before moving on to the next one. Follow along with the shape of each tooth and the curve of the gums. Keep the brush angled at 45 degrees towards the gum line with a 5th of the toothbrush head gently skimming the gum line.
3. Repeat Step 2 on the inside surfaces of the teeth.
4. Repeat Step 2 on the chewing surfaces of the teeth as well as behind the back teeth.
5. Try grazing the brush head along your tongue and the roof of your mouth, back to front, to help freshen your breath.
What Our Patients Say
I broke my tooth after falling off of my bike as a teenager and had a bridge I always hated for years. Dr Prinja talked me through my options and the surgery was so quick and painless I wish I'd taken the leap sooner! Now I feel so much more confident about my smile and I don't have to worry about my bridge coming off anymore!
