I’m a dental hygienist and have worked in areas volunteering including in shelters where people cannot afford “regular” dental visits. But please please do not run anything acidic on your teeth and leave it there for it to scientifically proven eat away at your teeth. Baking soda does have a toothpaste but large amounts causes microabrasions in the teeth, potentially causing tooth damage and increased staining. Light toothbrushing half on the tooth half on the gums with a basic fluoridated toothpaste , floss, and listerine mouth rinse will do the tricks. These are scientifically proven recommendations. Tartar builds up from increased minerals in the saliva, it’s natural but it also builds up underneath the gums which staying there for years can cause bone loss and infection in the body. Try to go if you can save up the 120 cleaning at least once a year, and if not do your best but be careful wielding sharp picks in your mouth it took me three years of school to learn that skill 😉

Our testing showed that sensitive modes will reduce the speeds of the toothbrush, which may make them more comfortable for those with sensitive teeth. But the Sonicare is also compatible with brush heads offering softer bristles specifically designed for sensitive teeth. In fact, unlike many others, Sonicare offers a variety of brush heads to help you find the perfect comfort level. In addition, replacing brushing heads feels seamless with the Sonicare — removing and placing a new head took very little effort. Competitors like the Foreo Issa had heads that took a large amount of force to remove — so much so that one of our testers actually rocketed the brushing head across the room.
For the jock itch part (its fungal) I take a large cup like from 7-11 and use as much Apple Cider Vin as you want with warm water and pour it on the area.. after a few treatments in the shower, issue goes away.
Dental hygienists can become members of the New Zealand Dental Hygienists’ Association. The association was founded in 1993, and is affiliated with the International Federation of Dental Hygienists.
Heads up – the referral link goes to an Amazon page showing that the Oral B Pro 1000 is no longer available, but if you do a search across Amazon you can find a different listing for Prime. Definitely want to support, so let me know when/if the switch is made.
Periodontal therapy is a continuous cycle requiring regular evaluation and maintenance to optimise treatment outcomes. The treatment is normally carried out by a dental hygienist or oral health therapist, but involves all members of the dental team and can include specialists throughout the course of care. There are six phases undertaken by dental professionals when undertaking periodontal therapy, which are as follows;
Wow. I have now bought and own both a FlexCare and a DiamondClean model. The difference in vibration between these models and the 2 Series is many times over. My teeth feel much cleaner, the strength/power of the vibrations is much more intense with these higher end models.
You say that you’ll buy replacement heads every month or two. Why so frequently? The ADA recommends replacing toothbrushes every 3-4 months. Do these heads really need to replaced that much more frequently?
There are a few different options on the market that can make flossing easier if dexterity or coordination is a barrier, or as a preference over normal floss. Floss threaders are ideal for cleaning between orthodontic appliances, and flossetts are ideal for those with poor dexterity.
While these programs generally take between 15 and 18 months, students are often allowed to take courses at their own pace. This flexibility will come in handy if you’re juggling a full-time workload and other obligations.
If you can’t find the Oral-B Pro 1000, get the runner-up, the Philips Sonicare 2 Series. Like the Pro 1000, the 2 Series is not trumped up with unproven features and includes everything you need in an electric toothbrush. The 2 Series runs much more quietly, but unlike the Pro 1000, it comes to a full stop after two minutes of brushing (rather than restarting the cycle as the Pro 1000 does) and has a less diverse, more expensive range of brush heads, giving you fewer options for texture and shape.

My recent order arrived. The replacement brushes are so short they look like they have been cut back to the plastic head. If I use them it will be hard plastic on my teeth. I don’t know what happened to these replacement heads. I’m sending them back.
In 2009, Fiala co-authored a paper that showed how curcuminoids, substances found in the spice turmeric, enhanced the surface binding of amyloid beta to macrophages and that vitamin D strongly stimulated the uptake and absorption of amyloid beta in macrophages.
In 1898 Smith presented a lecture on his system of periodic oral prophylaxis, which required patients to attend regular visits for prophylactic treatment and education sessions around oral home care.
Dental hygienists help patients develop and maintain good oral health. For example, they may explain the relationship between diet and oral health. They may also give advice to patients on how to select toothbrushes and other oral care devices.
From the guide- Oral-B Pro 1000, $65. This brush is functionally and physically identical to our Deep Sweep 1000 pick, save for being a different color, and was our previous pick. If you can get it cheaper than the Deep Sweep 1000, this is a good brush to get.
If it’s your first sonic or electric toothbrush, some of the toothbrushes might be equipped with a beginner’s mode. It’s recommended the first 3 days to take it easy with brushing. You can brush first for just 1 minute at a time, which will allow your mouth to slowly adjust to the Sonicare intense vibrations.
It’s unfortunate there isn’t better information on the possible benefits of the “sonic” cleaning action. If I read correctly, the difference is ~30k per minute frequency vs ~3k per minute, the higher frequency naturally being accompanied by smaller vibration amplitudes. It’s easy to imagine that as the brush head moves over a surface, each point on that surface is “agitated” many more times, on a different scale of movement, making for a radically different mechanical cleaning action.
Overall, the DiamondClean will give an effective clean and is compatible with a library of brushing heads. It’s an upgrade from the Sonicare 2 Series due to its added convenience of an effective pressure sensor and an app that displays your brushing progress for even easier brushing. It’ll cost an extra $125, but for feature-loving brushers the DiamondClean is a pick you won’t regret.
Electric toothbrushes come in two different styles — oscillating or sonic. There’s debate about which type offers a better clean for your teeth, but it turns out choosing a style largely depends on comfort and personal preference.
When you buy a sonicare toothbrush, it will usually feature a timer function. This time will ensure that you clean your teeth for the appropriate length of time. At each quarterly interval, the toothbrush well signal to you that’s it is at their quarter way mark. This will be an indication to you so that you can move on to the next quadrant of your mouth. The timer function allows you to spread your tooth brushing time out across the whole of your mouth evenly.

Another great thing about this model is the wide range of replaceable toothbrush heads that can be used by those who want more flossing action, have sensitive teeth and otherwise. For instance, these Oral-B Cross Action toothbrush head replacements ($21.49; amazon.com) have angled bristles designed to get in between teeth and have hundreds of reviews on Amazon and a 4.7 out of 5-star ranking.
That is a completely ad hominem attack on a scientific paper in a peer-reviewed journal. Do you have any specific complaints with their methods, procedures, or analysis, which is completely laid out in the open? If so, then let’s hear them. That’s the great thing about the scientific method.
4. Job outlook (especially in my home state of Texas) I am willing to relocate to any part of Texas or across the country for my job if need be. (I have already moved across the ccountry because one of my parents had a job opportunity).
Streptococci, staphylococci and treponema denticola – these are just a few names of the different bacteria that exist in the average mouth every day. It is estimated that most people’s mouths have literally millions of these organisms thriving just on the surfaces of the teeth. Having an abundance of bacteria is a contributor to tooth decay and gum disease, so keeping an environment less friendly to the harmful bacteria is one way to promote oral health.
The median annual wage for dental hygienists was $74,070 in May 2017. The median wage is the wage at which half the workers in an occupation earned more than that amount and half earned less. The lowest 10 percent earned less than $51,180, and the highest 10 percent earned more than $101,330.
Their S520 toothbrush is their most expensive and highest performance one. Pursonic maintains that the S520 model is capable of reaching up to 40,000 brush strokes per minute. Our tests, however, found this toothbrush to be significantly weaker compared to pretty much any Philips electric toothbrush that is priced over $30. In our opinion, the brush strokes per minute did not exceed 15,000.
There have been studies done that small amounts of germs become airborne from the toilet whenever it is flushed. Due to this knowledge some people store their toothbrush as far away from the toilet as possible. Really it only needs to be 2-3 feet away from the mouth of the toilet bowel, and even then it is not proven that the trace amounts of germs collected on the toothbrush will adversely affect one’s health at all. Just to be sure, I would discourage storing toothbrushes on the toilet tank.
If you are like most people, you are reminded each morning of the millions of bacteria growing in our mouths. After all, that’s one of the reasons we brush our teeth every morning. But where do those germs go? Yes, some of them go down the drain, but far too many of them remain on our toothbrushes.
