Go beyond simple brushing with PLAQUE HD
Plaque is sneaky and can build up without adequate oral hygiene, especially with the added difficulty of brushing with braces. So in addition to the common tips associated with good oral hygiene such as brushing twice a day, swishing after all meals and acidic/sweet drinks and flossing daily, plaque can still persist.
Finding the plaque in order to brush it away, however, is now easier than ever. Dr. Nathan Davis recommends using PLAQUE HD which is a professional plaque-identifying toothpaste. Using PLAQUE HD aids in discovering trouble spots so they can be taken care of before cavities and gum disease take hold.
When using Plaque HD, normal brushing techniques are used but instead of rinsing right after brushing, it's time to check for green areas which indicate plaque build up. Extra brushing in those areas will help to eliminate the extra plaque, making for fresher breath and cleaner mouth.
Ask Dr. Nathan Davis or any of the staff at your next appointment if PLAQUE HD is right for you. Give us a call if you have any questions or concerns at 480-969-8500. Your smile is depending on your good care!
