The TePe Gentle Care™ Specialty Brush for After Oral Surgery
TePe Gentle Care™ is a super soft toothbrush recommended after oral surgery and for patients with sore or very fragile oral tissue, sensitive root surfaces, extremely dry mouth and during radiotherapy.
TePe Gentle Care™ is slightly firmer than TePe Special Care™. This brush is ideal while tissue continues to heal and before transitioning back to your standard toothbrush. The neck of the brush can be angled in hot water for better access. When deciding to use this toothbrush, it is best to consult with your dental professional before using, especially around tender areas in the mouth.
When using the Gentle Care toothbrush place the bristles towards your gums at a 45-degree angle so that the bristles sweep along the gumline and then slowly move it around your mouth in small incremental back and forth motions. Look in the mirror to ensure that you place the brush properly.
