DEXTERITY ISSUES & ORAL HEALTH
Dexterity(the ability to perform a difficult action quickly and skillfully with the hands)

If you are dealing with dexterity issues or are caring for someone with dexterity issues you know how difficult it can be to maintain proper oral hygiene.

Here are some tips to make proper oral hygiene more achievable:
TEETH BRUSHING
*an electric toothbrush
-easier to hold (larger handles)
-the toothbrush does the work for you (especially for back teeth)
-they keep you from brushing too hard
-most have timers (ensures you are brushing for 2 mins)
-they do a more thorough job of reducing plaque
Remember, there is a difference between battery-operated toothbrushes and electric.
Battery toothbrushes (use batteries to make toothbrush vibrate slightly more than a manual)

At OCD. we are offering an exceptional deal on an Oral-B
Electric Toothbrush. Call us or drop by our office, we have a display model that you can see for yourself. We have also included a supply of dental products.

FLOSSING
Combined with brushing, flossing is the best thing you can do to maintain proper oral health
Flossing Products
*water flossers (directs water between teeth)
*floss threaders(allows you more control)
*inter-dental brushes (can fit between teeth
*floss picks with handles (easier to hold floss)

Along with practicing proper oral health at home, it is also very important that you visit your dentist and hygienist regularly!
