Evaluation of flossing and brushing technique after oral physiotherapy through video observation

AUTHOR(S): Mario Alberto Barba-Rivera, Marianela Garza-Enríquez, Gloria Martínez-Sandoval and Brenda Ruth Garza-Salinas
ABSTRACT:Oral physiotherapy is defined as the maintenance of oral hygiene and its objective is the complete and daily removal of the plaque with a minimum of effort, time and devices, using the simplest possible methods. Materials and methods: 30 patients from 18 to 65 years of age, divided into two groups: one without prior instruction and a second group in which the technique of modified Stillman brushing and flossing was explained to them, to be subsequently filmed using a face mirror and to evaluate the brushing time, the effective duration of brushing, the brushing pattern, the order of sextant and the use of dental floss. Results: Despite instruction in hygiene techniques, better results of instruction were found in the control group.
