Dr. Pepi’s Nightly Dental Program

Here is my 7-minute, nightly program to protect the teeth, gums, and throat from infection. When you are done eating for the night is a good time to do this, so that you have an 8 to 12 hour stretch of reduced plaque Download foxit reader. Plaque is the sticky layer of germs and food particles on teeth that leads to periodontal (gum) disease, cavities, and bone damage.

Here’s what I recommend:

  1. Water pik all surfaces of your teeth to rinse out larger food particles and increase circulation to your gums Tomorrow. The water pik that does the best job for me is made by Oxycare.
  2. Floss your teeth to remove plaque from under the gum line. Do not snap the floss into the middle of the ‘V’ of the gums between two teeth, as this can damage and compact the gums Bear audio. Move the floss as far as possible under the gum surface at the base of each side of the tooth. Once you are under the gum, scrape against the tooth surface on the way out to remove plaque 기황후 무료 다운로드. Use a mirror and keep scraping until all the plaque that can be seen is off. Use clean sections of floss as you move around the mouth.
  3. Use a Sonicare toothbrush (Sold at Costco — buy the one with an Ultraviolet container to kill germs on the brushes.) to brush remaining particles off the teeth, gums, and tongue 무겐 도날드. (The tongue usually has more germs than other parts of the mouth.) Soni- care is the toothbrush least likely to lead to gum recession as it is the most gentle yet effective toothbrush 원랜디 8.3.
  4. Put your Sonicare brush head into the UV box and turn it on. Or, once a week, pour 3% hydrogen peroxide into a small glass and soak your toothbrush in it over night Open Canvas 1.1.
  5. Sometimes, bacteria and food particles can slip under a filling. To reduce bacteria in these areas and help whiten teeth, hold a mouthful of 3% hydrogen peroxide in your mouth for a minute Bulletin Board Excel. To distract myself from the taste, while I am doing this, I use a paper towel soaked with 3% hydrogen peroxide to wipe up the faucet handles and sink to kill germs 대항해시대 외전. Spit out the hydrogen peroxide and rinse out with water.
  6. Before bed, I take at least 1 Core Level Bone (click here to purchase from my Front Desk, or phone 818-808-0899) to help strengthen my teeth against infection 공사일정표 다운로드.
