Where possible, we ask recipients to work toward increasing the number of people on public water systems who receive optimally fluoridated water. We also understand that maintaining the number of people served by CWF is critically important, as well; particularly in areas that already have a high proportion of the population receiving fluoridated water. So, yes, recipients should report on maintenance, too.
Regulations on the importation, labelling and sale of paan and associated products should be enacted and enforced alongside the regulations on sale and promotion of tobacco. Oral cancer rates amongst South Asian communities in the UK are higher than in the indigenous community. Effective prevention is dependent upon developing culturally sensitive interventions that address the social and structural basis of tobacco use amongst high risk populations. Sale of tobacco containing Paan (betel nut) is largely unregulated and many teenagers use these products.62

The single most continuous theme of preventive and public health dentistry has been and remains the cleaning of teeth . In the present commentary “clean teeth” will be equated to good oral hygiene and/or low dental plaque levels. This simple objective has been difficult and at times not even possible to attain. The fundamental importance of oral hygiene, moreover, has often been controversial. Diocletian Lewis (1823–1886), an illegal medical practitioner, coined the adage “A clean tooth never decays”. Over the years, nevertheless, this has been heatedly contested. Many authors have advocated a narrow association between dental plaque levels and gingival disease. However in 1998, the European Workshop on Mechanical Plaque Removal clearly stated that “Forty years of experimental research, clinical trials and demonstration projects in different geographical and social settings have confirmed that effective removal of dental plaque is essential to dental and periodontal health throughout life” . This statement, based upon an overwhelming abundance of evidence, is today commonly accepted.
For kids under 5, I recommend you order the smaller heads, HX6032 is the part number. You can save the head that comes with this brush for when they are more accustomed to the large size of the Sonicate Kids brush handle and original head. For my 4 year old, the original head was just too big.

Oral-B Pulsar toothbrush is battery operated to gently vibrate and polish away stains for a whiter, cleaner smile. Using the same technique to brush as a manual toothbrush, the bristles vibrate providing a gentle massaging and polishing action while brushing. The bristles penetrate between teeth where stain build-up often begins. Plus, the split head design moderates the amount of pressure applied to your teeth and gums. Contouring to your unique smile, the Pulsar toothbrush will leave your smile bright and clean with every use.
Greater Goods’s Sonic Electric Toothbrush costs less than any brush we’ve considered so far. However, the replacement heads come in only one style. And though heads are about half the price of those that accompany our top pick, I found myself needing to replace them in about half the time (the bristles got smashed down), virtually negating the long-term savings for this brush.

This toothbrush works great, comes with great extras as well. I am concerned about intermittent stopping. It has a preset time to brush before it turns off, however during that time it does stop for a split second before continuing. Is it supposed to do that, or is there something wrong. Other than that, I love the brush, charger and extras.
*Unofficial 2016 Impact Factor was established by dividing the number of articles published in 2015 and 2014 with the number of times they are cited in 2016 based on Google search and the Scholar Citation Index database. If ‘X’ is the total number of articles published in 2014 and 2015, and ‘Y’ is the number of times these articles were cited in indexed journals during 2015 than, impact factor = Y/X

Quality from the perspective of the individual patient should be considered separately from the perspective of the general public or the practice-population. Campbell and colleagues summarised quality for individual patients as; ‘whether individuals can access the effective care they need with a patient-centred focus on maximising health outcomes’, but that this has to be set against a population context that feeds in the concepts of equity and efficiency.2 This has been described as simplistic,22 but others have emphasised the dual foci of holistic, personalised care for individuals that is provided equitably at a population level.1,23 There is also a difference between horizontal equity: care that is equally accessible and equally effective for patients with the same degree of illness; and vertical equity: care that provides better access for patients with greater need.2,24
I’ve had many of these over the years, older and newer models. They all worked fine. The only thing I don’t like is that once the battery dies (stops holding charge), a mechanically perfect toothbrush has to be tossed out. Most lithium ion batteries last only 2-3 years. The last Oral-B I opened up had a 14430 lithium ion battery in it. Older models used NiMH and NiCd batteries.
More than half of the studies Cochrane researchers looked at involved rotating, oscillating electric toothbrushes featuring heads that spin swiftly in one direction and then the other. Other studies examined sonic toothbrushes that have vibrating brush heads; powered brushes that move side-to-side but don’t rotate; ones with tufts that move in different directions; as well as types that attempt to dislodge plaque via a mild electrical charge. The researchers didn’t draw conclusions about the best kind of brush.
All the staff are wonderful. They are kind and caring and I couldn’t be more pleased with their customer service. The staff are patient with my children, and my children are able to trust them, which makes the visits a much more success!
Your oral cavity collects all sorts of bacteria, viruses, and fungi. Some of them belong there, making up the normal flora of your mouth. They’re generally harmless in small quantities. However, a diet high in sugar creates conditions in which acid-producing bacteria can flourish. This acid dissolves tooth enamel and causes dental cavities.
Is there anything leafy greens can’t fix? Because they’re high in vitamins and minerals while being low in calories, leafy greens—like kale, spinach, Swiss chard and collard greens—are a fool-proof way to keep teeth healthy. The antioxidants and vitamins found in these powerful veggies combat cavities while also serving as a sneaky source of calcium to keep teeth strong.

With the toothbrush still off, place it in your mouth. The bristles should be placed against the teeth and should have a slight angle towards the gum line. Close your mouth before turning the brush on. Otherwise, your bathroom will be showered with toothpaste.
