Ken Larsen's web site - Dental Cleaning

 

During January-March 2015 I underwent chemotherapy and 30 oral radiation treatments to treat a tumor on my tonsil.  The radiation adversely affected my saliva glands ... which are a key component of dental hygiene.  To cope, I must be meticulous in my dental cleaning.  Here are the regimens that I will use:

 

Have teeth cleaned professionally by a dental hygienist 4 times/year instead of the usual two.

 

Each day:

 

1 After breakfast 1. Wait 30 minutes.
2. Rinse with a tablespoon of Biotene.
3. Brush with a prescription fluoride toothpaste using electric toothbrush. 

4. Leave the toothpaste on the teeth for 30 minutes.  [This seems too long!]
5. Rinse with ACT Anticavity Fluoride Mouthwash.
2 After each meal/snack 1. Wait 30 minutes.
2. Brush with regular toothpaste using electric toothbrush. 
3. Rinse with ACT Anticavity Fluoride Mouthwash.
3 Prior to bed 1. Brush with regular toothpaste using electric toothbrush. 
2. Floss.
3. Waterpik. 
4. Rinse with ACT Anticavity Fluoride Mouthwash.
