You may wonder. What is a dentist’s oral hygiene routine?
Let me share my oral hygiene regimen at night.
- Waterpik to remove more than 90% of bacterial plaque around and in between teeth.
Fill ⅔ of reservoir with water. In aquarius model, that is equivalent to 60 seconds of use. Fill it with water only ( it can be warm). Do not put listerine or other chemical because it can clog the line.
You want to have it set 8-10. Place your tip 90 degrees to your teeth and gumline.
- Brush with electronic toothbrush and Fluoride toothpaste.
Place the toothbrush bristle 45 degrees. Remember Fluoride is a friend to your teeth. I called it, “Tooth Vitamin.”
- Floss.I still do it to make sure! I still recommend you to floss even when you use Waterpik.
Talk to your dentist or hygienist about your dental regimen.
We are here for you.
