BrushPicks are making Dentists Smile

Dr Ben Atkins, Revive DentalDentists are smiling during National Smile Month (18th May – 18th June), after new oral healthcare product is helping their patients to keep their smile healthy.

‘I am always looking for products that innovate my patients to clean their teeth, I have found the Doctor’s BrushPicks do this, they stimulate the mind and have been the straw that has broken the back with a few of my more challenging patients’ Dr Ben Atkins, Revive Dental Care & Trustee of the British Dental Health Foundation.  

The Doctor’s Brushpicks are also very effective at cleaning braces, which are becoming increasingly popular with adults in the UK as a number of high profile celebrities have used them to straighten their teeth (Tom Cruise, Niall Horan, Faye Dunaway and Gwen Stefani). 

The product is a light plastic toothpick with a feathered tip that is twisted between teeth. The flexibility of the unique patented plyalene® plastic used means longer lasting bristles on the feathered tip will remove debris without aggravating the gums or damaging any bridge work, while the strong pointed tip enables the user to remove and reduce plaque, stimulating gums to promote periodontal health and help fight gingivitis.

You can buy yours now wholesale from Revolve Distribution, or for Dental Wholesale, from the Dental Directory or if you want a packet you can buy them from or SkinKicks.

Health problems linked to bad oral hygiene

We’re sorry to tell you that the  mouth is one of the dirtiest areas of the body. It has been said that the mouth harbours more bacteria than there are people on this planet!

When bacteria have time to cultivate in the mouth it can lead to gum disease. Gum disease can complicate an already existing health issue or may even bring on a new one. It also makes for an unsightly smile.

There is a strong link between having poor oral health and having poor overall health. The bacterium that cause periodontitis can enter the bloodstream via bleeding gums which is what links the two together.

Here are just a few medical conditions linked to poor oral hygiene:

  • Heart disease
  • Endocarditis – Bacteria may find its way to the inner linings of the heart and valves which in turn, create growth pockets of bacteria. T
  • Stroke –  It is believed that oral bacteria may be a contributing factor to the arteries narrowing as well as blood clots easily forming because of the body’s negative response to the bacteria in the bloodstream.
  • Inflammation – Inflamed gums and bleeding may cause systemic inflammation.
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis – It is known that periodontal disease will worsen the pain!
  • Lung Condition – Those already suffering from Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and pneumonia may have their condition worsened due to an increase of bacteria in their lungs.


The best way to fight this is to have a good oral hygiene regimen. Removing plaque is the only way to keep your gums and teeth free from disease. Brush your teeth at least two times a day and use the Doctor’s BrushPicks in between your teeth. Brushing and brushpicking is the best prevention to a healthy mouth!

Are your teeth half clean?

Great oral hygiene is really important if you want to have healthy teeth. Effective brushing and interdental cleaning is defined as having removed all material from each side of each tooth. Teh material that can cause cavities and gum disease is easily removed with a good toothbrush, interdental brush (the Doctor’s BrushPicks) and effective technique.

We need to think of teeth as having 5 sides:  

1) Occlusal (Biting/Chewing surface)

2) Facial (Outside next to your cheeks)

3) Lingual (Inside next to your tongue)

4) Mesial (Front in between your teeth)

5) Distal (Back in between your teeth)
