In patients with gumline
decay, power toothbrushes can be helpful in getting the fluoride into the gum area.
One was an ancient sow with front and back teeth worn down to the gumline
The best method is to use a soft toothbrush held at a 45-degree angle from the gumline
, and to use short strokes.
One canine tooth was sawed off at the gumline
using a Dremel[TM] Roto-drill equipped with a 1-mm thick, 25-mm diameter carborundum disk.
An effective brushing method is easy to develop - simply tilt the bristles at a 45-degree angle towards the gumline
and move the brush in small circular movements covering all surfaces of the teeth for two minutes.
I'd checked my teeth in the rear-view after lunch at the Joyce Kilmer rest stop, and there it was, smack-center and halfway up, working its way to the gumline
, ready to divide that tooth in hall, the way the Mississippi River divides the twin cries of Minneapolis and St.
Complete Care gets to those hard to reach areas deep between teeth and below the gumline
where plaque and stains tend to collect and make a person's smile dull and dingy.
The cup-shaped brushhead with oscillating action has a "dual power" feature to reach deeper between teeth and below the gumline
Reduced salivary flow greatly increases the risk for dental caries, particularly gumline
decay, periodontal disease, yeast infections, and other oral lesions.
Periodontal scaling involves instrumentation below the gumline
for purposes of removing mineralized deposits (calculus) and root planing.
Holding your toothbrush at a 45-degree angle, gently brush the inner and outer surfaces of your teeth at the gumline
with back, forward, and rolling strokes.
The configuration is said to tackle each of the cleaning zones in the mouth: densely packed bristles at the tip clean the back teeth, bi-level inner bristles clean tooth surfaces and between the teeth and remove soft dental plaque and higher outside bristles provide gentle cleaning and stimulation along the gumline
to help keep gingivitis at bay.
Sometimes compounding the problem, use of some medications like Dilantin can cause overgrowth of the gums, resulting in extra trapping of bacteria and plaque below the gumline
Not until somebody noted that in Indiana, the law requires all dentures must bear the name of the person they were made for, inscribed under the artificial gumline
Salivary samples were obtained (participants placed a dental swab dipped in sugar-free lemonade crystals along their gumline
for 30 seconds) immediately before and 20 minutes after the sessions (on the assessment days) to be assayed for cortisol (a hormone indicative of stress level).
