Patient Brushing Instruction

In-office instruction is important to demonstrate how to use the different brushing technologies. Face-to-face direct communication between the patient and provider should serve as the basis for homecare instruction. Several YouTube and site-specific videos exist demonstrating the different brushing techniques for Oral-B, Sonicare, and WaterPik that can be reviewed in the office and then used by the patient at home for reinforcement and guidance.
