Specialist gum consultations at RW Perio involve a detailed discussion at the start, followed by full mouth gum measurements, x-rays and photographs 🦷
Dr Wadia will then put all the information together and discuss the best plan for you going forward, ensuring all your concerns are addressed. Consultations usually take an hour ✨For more information, please visit www.rwperio.com.
Plaque/biofilm is often invisible, so we always use a disclosing agent to highlight it 🦷 Once revealed, this helps us give tailored advice on home care and also ensures we remove every little bit of it before the end of the appointment 👏
I’d recommend buying an electric (re-chargeable) toothbrush ⚡These are far more effective at removing plaque because they’re designed to gently massage teeth and gums correctly - with many now having a pressure sensor that warns you if you’re pressing too hard 🦷 You need to place the toothbrush at a 45-degree angle against the spot where the gums and teeth meet, angle upwards for the upper teeth and downwards for the lower teeth. Spend a few seconds per tooth 🕥 For those with established gum disease, you are likely to need more than 2 minutes. Always use a toothpaste containing fluoride. If you have specific issues e.g. tooth sensitivity, find a toothpaste which helps tackle this. Always spit and don’t rinse out your mouth after using the toothpaste or it will wash away all the ‘good stuff’!
Dr Wadia was chosen from the UK to be at the exciting launch event of the new Oral B iO toothbrush. We love the fact that it’s smoother, quieter, easier to charge, has a completely digital display and includes features such a gamification and positive reinforce. This will be available from August 2020 so we look forward to making it available at the clinic from then 🦷✨
