FAQ

How to floss
Using lengths of floss and tape is the traditional method of cleaning between teeth and along the gum line and is ideal for smaller gaps between teeth.
Cleaning between teeth is essential in maintaining healthy teeth and gums and flossing is ideal for smaller gaps between teeth. As well as effectively removing plaque from between teeth and below the gum line the thin nature of these products also means that they pass and clean between the tooth contact points and will help prevent caries. However many people find using floss difficult, time consuming and sometimes painful so below we offer tips on how to make flossing simpler so you can make it a regular part of your oral care regime .

Traditional ‘reel’ floss
Using lengths of floss and tape is the traditional method of cleaning between teeth and along the gum line

How to use:

• Take 12 – 18 inches / 45cm of floss

• 1. Wind the floss around the middle fingers of each hand and hold it tight leaving a gap of about 3 inches / 8 cm.

• 2. Gently glide the floss between your teeth and towards your gum line. Run carefully up and down the side of each tooth, taking care to clean under the gum line to dislodge food and plaque.

• 3. Repeat the process for each space, using a clean section of floss each time. Dentists recommend that flossing should be used as part of your daily dental care regime – preferably at the end of the day before going to bed

Flossing harps
An alternative to flossing with lengths of floss is to use a floss ‘harp’ device. These are rigid plastic products that have a length of floss built in that can be easily manoeuvred around the mouth and then disposed of after use. These can make flossing a much quicker process and make reaching the back teeth much easier than when using traditional floss.

As with traditional floss they should also be used gently and should never be forced between teeth so as to avoid gum damage.

Wisdom offer three ‘easy flossing’ products:

• Wisdom Easy Floss – A long handled flosser with disposable floss harps that makes reaching the back teeth incredibly easy.

• Wisdom Clean Between Flossers – A disposable plastic harp with a waxed floss length in one end and a handy toothpick on the other

• Wisdom Easy Slide flossers – A disposable harp design but incorporating a softer PTFE flossing ribbon for excellent gentle cleaning. Ideal for people with delicate gums.

Flossing for the first time
When using any flossing product for the first time you may notice that your gums may bleed a little. This is normal and should stop after one or two uses. If bleeding persists stop flossing and consult your dentist or hygienist.

Choosing a Toothbrush: Learn about features and benefits to help you choose the right brush for you.

Read our guide to learn about the features and benefits of toothbrushes to help you choose the right brush for you.
Below our top tips on what to look out for to help you find the right brush for you.

1. Texture: Toothbrushes are available in a variety of textures from extra soft to extra hard. Dentists recommend a soft to medium texture toothbrush to ensure effective cleaning without damaging tooth enamel and gum tissue.

2. Head size and shape: Choose a brush with a head size to suit your brushing style. Look out for compact heads to allow access to all mouth areas with a rounded shape for safer brushing.

3. Filaments (bristles): Toothbrush filaments come in a wide variety of colours and styles with some having additional cleaning features built in including some with a micro textured surface that can aid plaque stain removal while you brush. Brushes such as Wisdom Clean Between use tapered filaments in the head which are designed to reach further between teeth whilst also being extremely gentle on gums. Angled filaments and longer tips can also be useful in reaching the back teeth and in between.

4. Handle design: With everyone having their own unique brushing style it is important to choose a brush that suits you and provides a comfortable and secure grip when brushing. Look out for rubber grips to help stop hands slipping when brushing.

5. Tongue cleaners: Many toothbrushes now come with rubber or plastic tongue cleaners built into the back of the brush head. These are designed to remove bacteria from the tongue and inside of the cheeks to ensure your mouth is left completely clean and fresh. Some tongue cleaners even feature antibacterial ingredients to inhibit the growth of bacteria on the tongue cleaner for even greater hygiene.

6. Gum Massagers: Rubber fingers around the edge of the brush head are also now a regular feature on modern toothbrushes and have been developed to stimulate the gums whilst brushing to help keep gum tissue healthy.

7. Rubber whitening features: Rubber sections in the head of the brush can also be used to aid stain removal on the surface of the teeth for a whiter smile.

8. Electric & battery toothbrushes: These are available with oscillating or vibrating heads and can deliver a powerful cleaning action for efficient plaque removal. They should still be used for 2 minutes twice a day as a manual toothbrush to ensure they deliver the required level of cleaning. Although the powered movement definitely assists in cleaning the brush head must still be worked around the whole mouth as you would with a manual toothbrush.

9. Change your brush regularly: Whatever your brush choice you should still change your brush every 3 months. Most people in the UK only change their toothbrush once in every 9 months! Dentists recommend changing your brush every 3 months or as soon as the filaments become splayed as a worn out brush is not as effective at removing plaque. It is also recommended that you change your brush after any illness to avoid the spread of infections.

Directions

Regular use helps fight plaque, gum disease and tooth decay.

Use after every meal to help keep your teeth and gums healthy.

Complete Oral Care Routine
As well as visiting your dentist regularly ensure you keep your teeth and gums in great condition by following Wisdom’s simple 3 step guide to better oral health.
Step 1. Clean Between Teeth
Your teeth aren’t really clean unless you clean between!
This is the area most normal toothbrushes cannot reach and is a haven for plaque bacteria. If it is not removed it can lead to tooth decay and gum disease. First loosen and remove dental plaque and food debris from between the teeth using floss or an interdental brush before brushing. Everyone’s mouth is different, make sure you choose the correct product for you. Use a floss or a tape for smaller spaces or an interdental brush for larger gaps.

Step 2. Brush effectively 
Good brushing with a quality toothbrush and a non abrasive fluoride toothpaste is the foundation of a good oral health routine. By removing plaque regularly you can help yourself to avoid bad breath, gum disease and tooth decay. 2 minutes brushing twice a day is the recommended brushing time to deliver an effective clean.

Step 3. Rinse with an antibacterial mouthwash
Flossing and brushing are the most effective ways to remove harmful plaque from the teeth and gums, but a good quality mouthwash should be used as the last step in your oral care regime to remove the remaining plaque from between the teeth. As well as providing fluoride and an antibacterial action It also provides a pleasant fresh taste and clean mouth feeling. Some mouthwashes can deliver a very strong flavour and burning/drying sensation after use, if you would like a more gentle experience then choose an alcohol free mouthwash.

They also contain fluoride to help strengthen teeth against decay.
