Get Them Radically Clean with Rota-dent®

Most of our patients know we’re big advocates of excellent home hygiene habits. And one of the best bits of advice we can give is to invest in the right tools to do that job well. Like the Rota-dent battery-powered toothbrush. Why is it better than a regular brush? Well, remember that your mouth is continually supplied with oral bacteria. Bacteria deposit plaque on your teeth that, left untouched, hardens into calculus or tartar. Tartar irritates the gums, initiating the process of gum disease. And while regular brushing techniques seldom reach all of plaque’s favorite hiding places…like just below the gumline or in between the teeth… the Rota-dent has been clinically proven to reduce plaque and thereby minimize both calculus build up and gingivitis or gum disease. It’s designed to provide simple, effective, consistent access to even the hardest-to-reach places, including around orthodontics, appliances, and restorations. Without scrubbing, special toothpastes, or fancy techniques.

In fact, the Rota-dent requires less pressure than other powered toothbrushes, since the rotary action brush tips clean effectively with just a touch to the tooth surface. All you have to do is hold the brush tip so that it meets the gumline and tooth surface at a 90 degree angle, move it slowly across all tooth surfaces, and then rinse thoroughly. Some patients notice a slight tingling sensation or even mild bleeding initially, due to stimulation of previously unlearned or slightly diseased tissues. However, this will pass with consistent use. And finally, the Rota-dent comes with several different brush head designs to accommodate various dentitions, orthodontics, and gum conditions.
