We all need to take a 5 D approach to cleaning our teeth. Dentist and dental expert Ash Parmar agrees.

Ash Parmar of Smile Design by Ash (http://www.smiledesignbyash.co.uk) says “Our teeth have five accessible surfaces – hence the 5D routine – and it is vital to thoroughly remove plaque from all of these on a daily basis to keep the mouth in tip top condition. A poor dental hygiene routine may result in plaque build-up which is the start of tooth decay and gum disease. Sometimes it might even lead to bone and tooth loss not to mention bad breath and a less than white smile. The 5D approach is the foundation for healthy teeth and gums and fresh breath confidence.”

Don’t forget to integrate our world’s best interdental brushes, the Doctor’s BrushPicks into your 5D routine. Cleaning between the teeth will dislodge plaque from hidden sides’ surfaces.
