MetadataShow full item record
A clinical study was undertaken to assess the ability of four toothbrushes of varying bristle design and stiffness to remove dental plaque in preventive and non-preventively oriented patients. Patients were stained with disclosing solution and their plaque recorded by means of the OHI-S. Patients selected a brush arbitrarily and were asked to brush, on completion of brushing, they were stained again and the plaque re-scored. Patients were then asked to complete a questionaire. The study was completed on 120 patients, 60 non-instructed and 60 instructed in oral physiotherapy techniques. [TRUNCATED]
