Be sure to check with your dentist and dental hygienist once every six months
This rule will help you avoid full of little troubles, which can often be solved very easily if only treated in time. Pregnant women are advised to visit a dentist even every 3 months, because during this period there is a tendency to suffer more from gum problems. In some cases these problems can lead to premature birth.
Brush your teeth well
As simple as it may sound, it turns out that it is precisely this important rule that some of us tend to neglect. Effective brushing is one that is done for two minutes, twice a day. It is recommended to choose a brush with soft fibers, or alternatively an electric brush.
In addition, it is important that brushing teeth is not too aggressive, as this habit can cause “receding gums”. The recommended brushing method is in a circular motion, focusing on the entire oral cavity and especially the line between the teeth and gums. And if so far you have neglected the back teeth, it’s time to give them a little more treatment.
Be sure to clean between the teeth as well
For the task you can use dental floss or a dedicated toothpick. Another option is to use a unique water standard, which uses the water pressure and acts as a dental floss for deep and thorough cleaning between the teeth. In any case, it is important to take care of this cleaning operation every day. If you need guidance, you can always contact your medic who will be happy to demonstrate to you how to do it right.
Pay attention to the mouthwash you use
If you are used to using mouthwash and do not suffer from dental infections, it is important to keep in mind that not all types of preparations are intended for daily use, as some contain “chloroxadine” – a substance that is intended to treat gingivitis but may cause yellowing. Suffering from infections? It is advisable to use mouthwash according to the doctor’s recommendation and in the appropriate dosage, usually the recommendation is for use for a limited period.
Smoking is known to be a risk factor for many diseases. In our context, the nicotine in cigarettes can lead to damage to blood vessels, as well as a lack of adequate blood supply to the oral cavity, and ultimately, damage to teeth and their health. Nicotine also impairs the absorption of vitamin C. Which may damage the gums.
Maintain a balanced diet
A balanced diet is important for maintaining overall health, and it turns out that it is also of great importance in the context of teeth. It is important to consume a diet rich in dietary fiber, vitamins and minerals.
Examples of such foods are for example: vegetables like carrots or cucumbers, fruits like apple and whole grains like oats. This is because crunchy foods that contain fiber, make us chew more. When this happens, we produce more saliva, and bottom line – this process reduces the bacteria in our mouth and helps reduce plaque, the plaque that accumulates on the teeth.
In addition, it is advisable to avoid eating sticky foods like toffee or processed sugary sweets, as these usually tend to stick to the teeth and raise the level of acidity in the mouth.
Chew sugar-free gum
Most of you will probably be happy to adopt this tip. Chewing contributes to the formation of saliva in the mouth, which is an action that helps maintain the teeth.
Drink plenty of water
Water is important for overall health, for maintaining a healthy immune system, for better digestion (which also affects the condition of the teeth indirectly) and for cleaning the mouth.
