Maintaining a healthy mouth is essential to our general wellbeing and quality of life. To help avoid any problems and ensure you keep a healthy smile follow the steps below twice a day.
Step 1: Gum Margins
Take a single tufted brush and use a small circular motion to clean the area where the gum meets the teeth and implants. Now repeat on the inside of the teeth. Time: 1 minute.
Step 2: Tooth Surfaces
Squeeze a small amount of VITIS Anti-Caries Toothpaste on to a suitable toothbrush and place on the gum margin, pressing firmly until the gum blanches. Use a small circular motion to clean the teeth and gums. Next clean the biting surfaces and then place the brush on the inside surface and repeat. Once complete spit out the excess but try not to rinse as this washes away the important active ingredients that protect your teeth. Time: 2 minutes.
Step 3: Between the Teeth
Take a small interdental brush and insert a couple of times between each tooth. The brush should fill the gap between the teeth while still moving easily. Importantly do not force the brush and if unsure of the appropriate size consult your dentist or hygienist. Time: 1 minute.
- After eating or between brushing rinse with 15ml of undiluted VITIS Anti-Caries Mouthwash. Do not rinse with water and avoid eating or drinking immediately after use.
- During the first week chew a disclosing tablet daily for 30 seconds to ensure that you are cleaning properly, after which point you should disclose once a week. Whilst using, spit out any excess and use your brush to thoroughly remove the new plaque stained red and the old plaque which will appear blue.
- Visit your dentist for a professional clean every 6 months.
