Disclosing solution is a great way to show patients where they need a little more attention with brushing. The pink areas on the teeth shown here are stained plaque. This patient is great at brushing her front teeth but the laterals are covered with bacteria.
This young lady thought she was doing a pretty good job but the stain painted another picture. Look at what a difference a cleaning makes!
You can find disclosing tablets at most retailers to test your own brushing ability!
