Well this doctor does not use any toothpaste (1:57) at least that’s what he claims. And when a doctor claims to use nothing on a public platform then I generally give the doctor’s opinion a bit more weight. 🙂

Relative Dentin Abrasivity (RDA) is the risk of the daily regimen of toothpaste to your teeth. 

The American Dental Association (ADA) and friends determined that, ideally, the RDA of a toothpaste should be 70 or below. Outside of brushing with plain water, the next lowest RDA value of 7 came in as, surprisingly, plain baking soda. Take a closer look at this chart, which is compiled from 24 sources, independent research and manufacturer data. Are you experiencing different levels of sensitivity with your toothpaste selection? Switching to a less abrasive choice may be your answer! Source: https://www.familydentisttree.com/abrasive-toot...

Toothpaste doesn’t remove plaque. Its the brushing that removes it. Plaque forms on areas where toothbrush bristles are not able to reach. This could be because those areas are genuinely hard to reach or because of bad/improper brushing style or bad toothbrush. I have heard regular use of mouthwash helping to dissolve plaque slowly and steadily.

Do electric toothbrush have an edge over manual/traditional toothbrush in this regards ?

Actually there are proper brushing techniques such as 1) brush from gum line to teeth end but not vice versa. 2) brush at a 45° angle. 3) brush for min 2 n max 3 mins.

Electric brush does these things for you. There are timers n they allow you to closely monitor the operation which we might miss with manual brushing. 🙂

Think of teeth as a comb. How would you clean a comb? What should be the brushing action? 

Most electric brushes rotate in a circular fashion. They will replace your manual brushing with brute force cleaning. Hence it is bound to clean better than manual brushing and in a shorter time. But it still doesn’t provide the correct brushing action. Think of it like you are cleaning the comb with hand using a toothbrush versus using an electric brush. Even if the brushing action is wrong in both the cases, the power brush will clean better as compared to manual brushing.

Best of both worlds would be electric brushes which have linear to-and-fro action, for e.g. Philips Sonicare.

No such issue for me. But I have general query to all. My mouth stinks all the time. Used several toothpaste and mouth wash but after like 1 or 2 hours of brushing, foul smell comes. Consulted dentist and he recommended cleaning and filling in 1 tooth to which he quoted ₹1000 + 800. Is it normal price?

They’d take that much anywhere, go for it, it boosts your psyche and morale. Ask for some prescription for the bad odour too.

Sidhu bhai. Foul smell has many sources. 

Sources:

1) poor mouth hygiene

2) gingivitis

3) tonsil stones

4) dry mouth

Only dentist can identify
