Four steps towards a world without caries

With the arrival of Oral Qamera it becomes possible to one day wake up in a world without caries. In that new world, no one has to worry about the health of our mouths and the mouth is seen by many specialists as the mirror of the body. Everyone knows the first three steps. The fourth step is new. Because with Oral Qamera, everyone at home can immediately check whether they have cleaned properly. Young plaque is immediately visible and can therefore be tackled effectively. Below are the four steps.

Step 1

Of course, it starts with brushing your teeth. Brush twice a day for 2 minutes with a soft toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste, preferably with an electric toothbrush.

Step 2

After brushing, interdental cleaning is almost a mandatory step. Clean the surfaces between your teeth once a day with floss, toothpicks or brushes.

Step 3

Plaque is stubborn and therefore it is recommended to rinse daily with mouthwash. Rinse with 20 ml for 30 seconds twice a day.

Step 4

Quick and easy check for plaque. Anyone can do it. Check with Oral Qamera twice a day whether all plaque has disappeared. If plaque remains, start again with step 1.

In the clinical world there is already a Qamera available to detect plaque. We currently have a scanner available for the consumer market that makes old plaque visible. The Oral Qamera Smart Scanner that highlights young plaque is expected to be available at the end of 2021. Contact us for more information.
