  • TOOTH BRUSHING TECHNIQUES By Dr.Ankita Rathore
  • PROPER TOOTH BRUSHING TECHNIQUES  The Bass Method  The Skillman's Method  The Rolling Stroke  The Charter’s Method
  • THE BASS METHOD  Position the filaments up toward the root at a 45° angle to the teeth.  Place the brush with the filament tips directed into the gingival sulcus.  Using a vibratory stroke brush back and forth with very short strokes for the count of ten.  Reposition the brush to the next group of teeth.
  • THE ROLLING STROKE  Direct the filaments toward the root of the tooth.  Place side of the brush on the gingiva and have the plastic part of the brush even with the tooth.  When the plastic portion is even with the tooth press the filaments against the gingiva and roll the brush over the teeth.  The wrist is turned slightly and the filaments follow the contours of the teeth.
  • THE STILLMAN’S METHOD  Like the Bass Method the filaments are placed at a 45 angle to the tooth.  Unlike the Bass Method the filaments are placed half in the sulcus and half on the gingiva.  The same stroke is used as the Bass.
  • THE CHARTER’S METHOD  Position the filaments toward the chewing surface of the tooth  Place the sides of the filaments against the enamel and angle them at a 45 to the tooth.  Vibrate the filaments gently but firmly, keeping the filaments against the tooth.  Reposition on the next set of teeth.
  • SUMMARY Toothbrushing alone cleans buccal and lingual tooth surfaces. No single tooth brushing technique adequately cleans occlusal pits and fissures. No tooth brushing procedure removes all interproximal and sub gingival plaque, especially around malposed teeth and fixed prostheses. Interproximal cleaning aids are necessary to complete the tooth-cleaning process.
  • NOTATION The important thing is to brush thoroughly for at least two minutes and twice daily….
