Diana Perez-Caballero, Lead Dental Hygienist with SOMI Dental Group, says she recommends to her patients to use a bristle toothbrush, because if they use a hard or medium bristle, they will cause micro-scratches to their teeth.
She shows different types of electric toothbrushes. One of them is Oral-B and she recommends it for people who has a lot of plaque. The other one is developed by a dental company. It’s a prescription strength toothbrush, she describes.
She reveals their toothpaste is an anti-sensitivity toothpaste. It is a prescription toothpaste and it has a lot of fluoride in it that will help patients overcome sensitivity.
