what brushing method is good for pt with pocketing and wide embrasures
Bass method/sulcular brushing
what brushing method is the tb starting at a 45* angle with the filaments towards sulcus and a vibrate brush back and forth motion and then rolling brush from sulcus.
bass method/sulcular brushing
what method is known as sulcular brushing
at what angle does the bass method start at? and where are the filaments directed?
filaments directed towards sulcus
what motion does the bass method use?
vibrate brush back and forth
t/f with the bass method the tb is rolled into the sulcus
FALSE! roll brush AWAY from sulcus
what are four limitations to the bass method?
dexterity-can't do the roll
incomplete brushing-skip spots
injury-bristles into sulcus
what method is for biofilm removal w/o emphasis on the sulcus?
who is the rolling stroke method good for?
Children, good intro on how to brush
what method is the first lesson in the modified stillman technique?
what method has the side of brush placed on attached gingiva?
where is the back of the tb during the rolling stroke?
flush with occlusal plane
t/f the rolling stroke cleans the cervical aspect and somewhat interdentally
what motion is used during the rolling stroke
roll wrist and brush along tooth contours
what are three limitations to the rolling stroke?
laceration of alveolar mucosa
punctate lesions-puncture gum tissue with bristles
what method is for the cervical brushing and good for pt with recession
the _____ method is used for stimulation , cleaning of the CERVICAL aspects of the teeth
how is the brush directed for the stillman method and what is the motion used?
brush directed apically
moved in a rotary motion (circle circle round and round)
what method is used to remove biofilm from cervical areas below the height of contour and from exposed proximal surfaces
modified stillman method
what is the starting position for the modified stillman method?
side of filaments against attached gingiva
how is the brush angled for the modified stillman method
what is the motion used for the modified stillman method
rotary motion for 10 counts
the modified stillman method has a starting position with the _____ of the filaments against the _____ ____ and the brush is angled _____ at _____ degrees and a _____ motion is used for ____ counts and the the brush is then rolled _____ from the _____ and then advanced
what are two limitations to the modified stillman method?
difficult to maintain light pressure
what method is used for gingival margins?
what method is used to remove biofilm in marginal and interdental gingiva and is great after surgery where interproximal tissue is missing, it cleans the cervical areas and exposed roots.
t/f when comparing the charters and stillman methods the stillman brush is approximately 45* to the occlusal plan with brush tips directed towards the occlusal or incisal surfaces and the Charters the brush is angled approximately 45* to the long axis of the tooth.
Both statements are FALSE! Stillman 45* to long axis and Charters 45* to occlusal
t/f the charter method is opposite to the tb placement when compared to the stillman
bettah believe it missy so true!
what motion is used for the charters method?
Get out your vibrator, and make it go circle circle for 10 seconds
what are three limitations to the charters method?
sulcus not accessed
what are five other methods of brushing that we do not recommend?
fones-bite teeth together and brush
leonard-vertical up and down
smith-physiologic (brush in the same pattern as your food)
