The GUM® Oral Care Cleaning Kit includes three professional-quality dental instruments that, when used correctly, can help maintain a high level of personal oral hygiene at home. The instruments help you to view inside your mouth and to remove food particles and deposits of dental plaque and calculus. The kit consists of a lighted mouth mirror, a dental explorer, and a scaling instrument.
The high-intensity and anti-fog design of the lighted mouth mirror allows maximum vision, reflecting light onto hard-to-see areas. The mouth mirror may also be used to retract the tongue, lips, and cheeks for better inspection of areas obscured by these tissues.
The dental explorer is helpful in removing trapped food particles between teeth, under the wires and brackets of an orthodontic appliance, and around fixed dentures and bridges. Care should be exercised so as not to probe any white spots and cavities in the teeth with the sharp tip. The advice of a dental professional should be sought immediately if you see any new white spots or cavities that your dentist may not be monitoring.
The third prophylactic instrument in the GUM® Oral Care Cleaning Kit is the scaling instrument. Its sharp tip can help remove stains and deposits of dental plaque and calculus from the tooth surfaces situated above the gumline.
All instruments in the GUM® Oral Care Cleaning Kit possess soft rubber grips that provide comfort and control in the mouth. Maintain your schedule of regular dental checkups.
