To investigate to what extent the degree of toothbrush wear of 3-month-old manual toothbrushes influence plaque scores.
This article was published in the following journal.
Name: International journal of dental hygiene
The optimal frequency of tooth brushing in the critically ill has not been experimentally determined. For mechanically ventilated patients, optimal frequency of tooth brushing is an important unresolv...
Ecological factors, but also tooth-to-tooth contact over time, have a dramatic effect on tooth wear in primates. The aim of this study is to test whether incisor tooth wear changes predictably with ag...
This study aimed to evaluate oral and dental health status of preschool children, to teach them two different brushing techniques, and to determine the effectiveness of such techniques.
Introduction: Perceiving the high prevalence of direct composite restoration technique usage for the rehabilitation of patients with increased tooth wear, as well as during the sanitation of oral cavi...
Erosive tooth wear (ETW) has become a crucial oral health problem over the decades in China.
The aim of this study is to evaluate the ability of a prototype power toothbrush (PTB) versus a manual toothbrush in healthy, right-handed manual toothbrush (MTB) participants with no sign...
Toothbrush plaque removal, along with interproximal flossing, helps to maintain the oral cavity free from periodontal diseases and dental caries. Although techniques such as the Bass Techn...
Tooth wear is a physiological process occurring from normal functioning of the dentition throughout lifetime. The studies in the current literature indicated that both techniques of tooth...
Tooth brushing for patients with breathing tubes is routinely provided by the bedside nurse as part of clinical care. The purpose of this study is to determine how often tooth brushing sh...
Background: Clinical studies have explored the relationship between toothbrushing and the development of recession, but relevant recession data for the multi-directional power toothbrush (...
The pathologic wearing away of the tooth substance by brushing, bruxism, clenching, and other mechanical causes. It is differentiated from TOOTH ATTRITION in that this type of wearing away is the result of tooth-to-tooth contact, as in mastication, occurring only on the occlusal, incisal, and proximal surfaces. It differs also from TOOTH EROSION, the progressive loss of the hard substance of a tooth by chemical processes not involving bacterial action. (From Jablonski, Dictionary of Dentistry, 1992, p2)
The wearing away of a tooth as a result of tooth-to-tooth contact, as in mastication, occurring only on the occlusal, incisal, and proximal surfaces. It is chiefly associated with aging. It is differentiated from TOOTH ABRASION (the pathologic wearing away of the tooth substance by friction, as brushing, bruxism, clenching, and other mechanical causes) and from TOOTH EROSION (the loss of substance caused by chemical action without bacterial action). (Jablonski, Dictionary of Dentistry, 1992, p86)
Loss of the tooth substance by chemical or mechanical processes
Occlusal wear of the surfaces of restorations and surface wear of dentures.
Exposure of the root surface when the edge of the gum (GINGIVA) moves apically away from the crown of the tooth. This is common with advancing age, vigorous tooth brushing, diseases, or tissue loss of the gingiva, the PERIODONTAL LIGAMENT and the supporting bone (ALVEOLAR PROCESS).
