Regarding the predisposing factors, it is possible to perceive that all of the variables remain significant up to the final level of analysis. The same is true for the enabling factors. When the self-reported needs are inserted into the model, only the complaint of a toothache remained statistically significant, given that the chance of someone with a toothache using public healthcare services was 32% more likely than for those who did not complain of a toothache. Nevertheless, this single variable remained statistically significant only at the next level of analysis when the diagnostic needs reported by the healthcare professional were inserted. These last variables, not including the number of teeth needing treatment, also were not considered statistically significant. The average number of teeth needing treatment was of 1.68, given that when a tooth needing treatment was added to the calculation, the chance of using public healthcare services increased by 8%. When the variable of time elapsed since the last dentist appointment was inserted, representing the characteristics of the healthcare services, this variable diminished in statistical significance.
The flossing action wasn’t a replacement for flossing, but the difference I felt between this and manual brushing was amazingly close to that feeling of just leaving the dentist. And my dentist had nothing but great things to say about my home care. I like that the Vitality replacement heads didn’t break the bank and there were lot of choice of generics that weren’t quite a good as the Oral-B brand ones but still got the job done.
Advocacy Day is a part of OHA’s annual Fall for Smiles campaign, which strives to educate Americans every September and October about the importance of maintaining a healthy mouth and is a component of OHA’s year-long Campaign for Oral Health Equity effort, graciously sponsored by Tom’s of Maine. This year’s theme, Our Future, Our Families: Achieving Oral Health Equity, sought to confront oral health disparities by bringing attention to the differences between having equal access to oral healthcare versus having equitable opportunity to achieve good oral health outcomes across the lifespan.
These kinds of toothbrushes not only clean the areas of the tooth and gum is that you can see, but it also is effective at breaking down plaque and other harmful bacteria that it located under your gum line.
There can be times when more than one procedure might be deemed an appropriate method of treatment for a person’s condition. And in these types of situations it’s common that an insurance plan will only provide coverage for the less costly service (such as a Basic service vs. a Major one).
Some electric toothbrushes are designed exactly as the manual toothbrushes. Their brush heads are the same in case you don’t like the round shape which allows you a tooth-by-tooth cleaning. Actually the round shape is used by Oral-B brushes and the traditional shape is used by Philips Sonicare brushes.
X-rays, also known as radiographs, are an essential part of any dental care treatment plan. They are diagnostic, but they can also be preventive, by helping a dentist diagnose potential oral care issues in a patient’s mouth before they become a major problem.

But, while experts agree that there is nothing wrong with standard toothbrushes, their downside is that people tend to lack discipline when brushing. A number of reports say most Americans brush for only 30 to 60 seconds, rather than the two minutes recommended by dentists, and that’s not nearly long enough to enable the fluoride in toothpaste to do its job. Reviewers say the best electric toothbrushes come with a two-minute timer and are able to reach hard-to-clean areas better than most of us can manage with a manual brush. Many brushes also use lights, vibration or sounds to notify you to move to the next quadrant of the mouth (upper left, upper right, lower left, and lower right) every 30 seconds.
We also see diversifying the workforce to better represent Massachusetts residents as critical, especially when you look at who is going into the dental profession. Establishing more pathways into the oral health professions through outreach to minority students, recruitment of minority faculty, and targeted financial incentives such as loan repayment programs will help.
Private foundations and organizations that focus on state policy can also play an important role in supporting efforts to eliminate unnecessary regulatory and policy barriers to oral health care. Therefore, the committee suggests the following as specific examples of activities for such organizations:
WHO’s goals are to build healthy populations and communities and to combat ill health. Four strategic directions provide the broad framework for focusing WHO’s technical work, which also have implications for the Oral Health Programme.
But as a way of helping you to compare the 3000 with the features of other higher-end Oral-B’s (which we consider to be good brushes just not exceptional values), here’s a brief overview of what you get.
“One of the 10 best electric toothbrushes available this year. Tiny head and vibrations strong enough to be effective, but not so strong that it will freak them out, teaches good habits from an early age”- The Independent – May 2016
After reviews of data on compliance with guidelines for heart attack, heart failure, pneumonia, and surgery, the dashboard shows no instances last year where non-white patient received less care than white patients. At the same time, it identified equity issues the hospital needed to address, including prostate cancer screening services for Hispanic men and well-baby visits for infants less than 15 months of age in non-English speaking families.

We get that if you don’t like using a rotary-action brush that switching to the Deep Sweep head provides you with a solution. But otherwise, if we initially knew that we wanted an electric that’s used similarly to an ordinary toothbrush, we’d investigate buying a Sonicare first.
When it comes to the type of handle (such as non-slip grip or flexible neck), shape of the head (tapered or rectangular) and style of bristles (such as rippled, flat or trimmed to a dome shape), pick whatever is most comfortable for you. The best toothbrush is one that fits your mouth and allows you to reach all teeth easily
I know dentists say to brush for 2 minutes, but it can feel like forever. The Quip made that a bit easier because I was reminded every time thirty seconds passed with a pulse. As you can see by my face (below), it was a fun surprise.
