I still remain my oppinion, that coloring and brushing colored areas is more effective way to reach every area. For the effectiveness of the brushing many factors exist, and all are best controlled with an usual hand operated brush.

Biotene PBR to dissolve plaque biofilm
Brush with extra soft toothbrush and fluoride-free Squigle Toothbuilder toothpaste (xylitol + ionic calcium & phosphorous)
Floss with Reach TotalCare floss (it's got tiny grooves that act like a toothbrush between the teeth. I make sure to rub it against both teeth before extracting.)

I'm pretty sure it's called Biotène PBF.

I have used blanx toothpaste and mouthwash to great effect. It is primarily a stain remover, not tooth builder, but it had worked excellently well for me.

I tried those red pills after my normal teeth cleaning routine. There was no plaque at all. No red spots anywhere whatsoever. :)

My cleaning routine is:

1. Thorough flossing with floss that has fluoride and xylitol in it.
2. 5 minutes brushing with fluoride paste and Braun Oral-B Professional Care 5000 electric toothbrush.
3. Tongue cleaning with tongue scraper.
4. Mouthwash with fuoride and xylitol.


I really do not need that messy coloring thing. Electric toothbrush with fluoride paste is very effective and compined with flossing and a good mouthwash it is a killer combo. :)

On top of that I use xylitol tablets that dissolve in you mouth daily.

IV waterpick with one of the mouthwashes at least once per day.


I am considering adding this to my routine. :)

This will be my dental health regime:

- Probiotic gum (once a day)
- Xylitol gum (once a day)
- Mouthwash (without alcohol or chlorhexidine) (2 times a day)
- Floss (two times a day)
- Brushing teeth (of course! 2- 3 times day) 
- Tongue gel + scraper (1-2 times a day)
- Gum stimulator 
- Weekly toothpaste
- Plaque indicator (how many times a week?)
- Oil pulling (2 times a week)
- Mouth spray (without alcohol or chlorhexidine) if needed
- End tufted toothbrush (if needed)
- Regenerate annual science serum (how many times?)


I will also use a sterilizer for my electronic toothbrush and a anti-bacterial cover.
Fluoride toothpaste or not? (LEF toothpaste seems a good alternative) 
Please give your opinion on this regime. Thanks! :)

I use an electric brush and I frequently use Plaque-coloring pills. Those pills are a great help, I work in the dental world and I know almost everybody brushes wrong.

I use floss every day. I will allow for about 10 mins with the electric brush every other day and I use my own equiptment at work to clean my calculus with an ultrasonic device and I give myself proffessional polishes three times a year. Those are important by the way, unless you specifically ask for that treatment and explain it along with your willingness to pay for it will anyone perform that for you. Almost 99 % of the population never got one. Only a few people with chronic periodontitis ever get them.

A proffessional polish is when you start the cleaning with a rough polish like Pumice and then work your way down through the RDA scale. RDA-250, then RDA-170 then RDA-90. That way you will get a smooth dental surface that is harder for bacteria to bind too.

 

Recently some online pharmacies began selling toothpaste with Delmopinol that stops bacterial aggregation. I would like to try that, has anyone else tried it`?

Everyone should visit an oral hygienist at least once. Periodontitis and caries reaching the pulp is really common and does some terrible things to mainly the CV-system.

What are your thoughts on Brush Piks?

I prefer floss or gum softpicks. Picks made of tree or hard rubber can cause regression of the gums in the approximal areas. Floss, softpicks or a correctly sized interdental brush is king.
