DHE 112 Quiz#5 chapters 10 &11

  1. What is the purpose of brushing ones teeth?
    • Removal of plaque biofilm and disturbance of its
    • re-formation
    • ▪ Removal of food, debris, and stain from the oral cavity
    • ▪ Stimulation of the gingival tissues
    • ▪ Application of a dentifrice containing specific ingredients
    • to address caries, periodontal disease, or sensitivity
  2. Brushing technique Rolling Method?
    • • Most appropriate for
    • children
    • • The bristles are positioned
    • apically along the long
    • axis of the tooth.
    • • Bristles are rolled against
    • the tooth from the apical
    • position toward the
    • occlusal plane.
    • • Repeat several times.
  3. *Brushing technique Stillman Method?
    • • Bristles are positioned
    • apically along the long axis
    • of the tooth.
    • • The edge of the brush head
    • should be touching the facial
    • or lingual aspect of the
    • tooth.
    • • Then the brush is slightly
    • rotated at a 45-degree angle
    • and vibrated over the crown.
  4. Brushing technique Charters Technique?
    • • Used to clean around
    • appliances
    • • Bristles are placed at a
    • 45-degree angle toward
    • the occlusal or incisal
    • surface of the tooth.
    • • A circular vibratory
    • motion is then activated.
  5. Brushing technique Fones Method?
    • • Used mainly by young
    • children
    • • The teeth are clenched, and
    • the brush is placed inside
    • the cheeks.
    • • Brush is moved in circular
    • motions.
    • • Can be damaging if done
    • too vigorously
  6. Brushing technique Leonard Technique?
    • • The toothbrush is placed
    • at a 90-degree angle to
    • the long axis of the tooth.
    • • The toothbrush is moved
    • in a vertical, vigorous
    • motion up and down the
    • teeth.
  7. Brushing technique Horizontal Technique?
    • • Teeth are edge to edge.
    • • Brush maintains a
    • 90-degree angle to long
    • axis of tooth.
    • • Horizontal strokes
    • • Can cause toothbrush
    • abrasion
  8. Brushing technique Smith Method?
    • • Physiologic technique, which
    • follows the pattern that food
    • follows when it is in the mouth
    • during mastication.
    • • Bristles are positioned directly
    • onto the occlusal surface.
    • • Brush is then moved back and
    • forth.
    • • Smith also recommends a few
    • gentle horizontal strokes to clean
    • the sulcus areas near furcations.
  9. *Brushing technique Scrub Toothbrushing Technique?
    • • Combination of horizontal,
    • vertical, and circular strokes
    • • Incorporates vibration
    • movements in certain areas
    • •This is not an appropriate method to choose, and care should be taken with this technique to avoid excessive pressure.
  10. Modified Brushing Technique?
    • • Integrates a rolling stroke after use of the vibratory motion
    • • The position of the brush is maintained after the completion
    • of the original method's stroke. The bristles are then rolled
    • coronally over the gingiva and teeth.
  11. Powered Toothbrush methods
    • Today the power toothbrushes can be categorized as
    • mechanical, sonic, or ionic.
    • • The main patterns of movements in the modern power
    • toothbrushes are oscillation, reciprocation, and rotational.
    • • Source of power:
    • ▪ Direct source (has a cord)
    • ▪ Battery operated
    • • Brush movements can range from 3,800 to 7,600 per
    • minute.
  12. Brushing technique Bass Method?
    • • Acceptable for all patients
    • • The toothbrush bristles are angled
    • apically at a 45-degree angle to
    • the long axis of the tooth
    • • Filaments subgingival
    • • Jiggle with short horizontal strokes
    • • 2–3 teeth at a time
  13. Types of fluorides? 2 types
    OTC (over the counter) and Stannous fluoride
  14. Stannous fluoride helps against?
    • Effective in the reduction of the incidence of dental caries.
    • "caries prophylactic dentifrice"
  15. CPP-ACP stands for?
    • Casein phosphopeptide- amorphous calcium phosphate
    • protein found in cows milk; used in pastes to promote remineralization of enamel in areas that have demineralized.
  16. What is the other name CPP-ACP?
    • Recaldent; Replaces calcium and phosphate ions that were lost to demineralization.
    • marketed in the US as GC Corporation MI Paste and MI Paste Plus.
  17. Unique characteristic of Chlorhexidine?
    • *unique property of chlorhexidine is
    • its substantivity
    • • The FDA has approved prescription plaque-control rinses
    • containing 0.12% chlorhexidine.
    • • Directions call for a twice-daily, 60-second rinse with
    • one-half ounce of such solutions.
    • Chlorhexidine has proved to be one of the most effective
    • anti-plaque agents to date.
    • • In the United States, chlorhexidine products are available
    • only by prescription.
    • Side effects can be associated with chlorhexidine use,
    • including:
    • ▪ Staining of the teeth, tongue, and tooth-colored
    • restorations are the most common effects
    • ▪ Altered taste sensation, irritation of the oral mucosa,
    • and burning sensation are reported
