Are you only cleaning 60% of your teeth?

Brushing alone will only clean about 60% of your tooth’s surface, so it’s important to remember that products such as interdental brushes and floss are available to remove plaque and debris between the teeth where your toothbrush can’t reach.
 
Only 27% of adults use an electric toothbrush. Rigorous tests have shown that brushes with small, oscillating heads are up to twice as effective at removing plaque compared to a manual toothbrush. Many now have 2-minute timers to ensure that brushing is done for the recommended amount of time.
 
Gum disease, the first pointer of which is bleeding gums, is entirely preventable by investing time in a good oral health routine both morning and night. If you need to buy an electric toothbrush, pop in and see us at Senova!
