Tariq Drabu is a leading dentist and specialist oral surgeon located in Manchester in the United Kingdom. He was one of the youngest dentists to ever graduate in the United Kingdom at twenty one years of age before he started work in some of the busiest dental hospitals in the UK and Saudi Arabia. He obtained his Fellowship in Dental Surgery at the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh and is now the owner of the successful Langley Dental Practice. Dr Drabu is also the Clinical Lead Dentist for the Oral Surgery Clinical Assessment and Treatment Services at NHS Heywood Middleton and Rochdale and also finds time in his busy schedule to mentor and tutor postgraduate dentists in oral surgery at the UCLAN Dental Clinic in Preston.
Tariq Drabu in Manchester said, “The British Dental Journal recently published an article on how toothpaste companies’ toothbrush techniques differ from dentists techniques. Going through the internet there are so many different techniques suggested that it’s easy for the public to get confused as to which is the right technique to use to ensure oral health.”
Tariq Drabu went on to say, “Some of the sites recommend brushing twice a day, while others recommend three times a day; there are those that even recommend brushing after every meal, which isn’t very practical or convenient. Time is also a confusing issue with many advising to brush for two minutes, while others suggest up to four minutes. As long as the correct techniques are used, I recommend my patients brush for two minutes twice a day to ensure the best oral health.”
Tariq Drabu closed in saying, “I always recommend my patients use the modified bass technique, which is easy to use and ensures the entire tooth is brushed properly and thoroughly. It starts with small circular motions at the top of the tooth, slightly on the gum and after a few circles, brush the tooth down to the end of the tooth to remove debris and build up. The best way to ensure patients are following the best brushing habits is for dental professionals to take the time to ask patients and then modify their current habits to incorporate the correct methods. I also always include flossing and mouthwash as part of their brushing habit.”
