Healthy teeth and beautiful smile are two things always to walk hand in hand. Teeth need brushing after every meal or twice a day. To this, you have to account mouth wash, dental floss, chewing gum, even… diet change. Read on my post and check how to correctly wash your teeth.
If you want to have a beautiful smile, brushing your teeth twice a day or more is not enough. You have to know the correct technique. You have probably learned at school that brushing your teeth should take 3 minutes and in the process, you have to make a circular motion. When brushing, you should also make a sweeping motion from the palate and tongue. Start brushing with the gums by gently pressing the toothbrush against it. If you use an electric toothbrush, be careful not to brush the gums to strong. It can cause gums to regress and result with gum recession. Do not forget to brush the tongue and the inner cheeks’ area. There are plenty bacteria settled. You can buy a special toothbrush for this purpose. The one you use for brushing teeth replace every three months.
MOUTH WASH AND DENTAL FLOSS
These are perfect complementary for the oral cavity. You should wash and floss your teeth at least once a day, best in the evening. Even the best brush is not able to remove all the food residues. Here the dental floss comes handy. However, to remove the bacteria, use mouth wash. It can contain fluorine or other ingredients recommended for the aphthous ulcer, gum disease or post surgical procedures.
CHEWING GUM AND DIET
During the day, chew a gum with xylitol, which has a beneficial impact on the correct mouth pH. However, do not exaggerate with use of this product. Frequent chewing is harmful to the temporomandibular joints and can lead to its falling out. Also, be careful with whitening toothpaste. Excess use of this product can cause a deficit in the enamel and make teeth sensitive. If you want to have beautiful teeth, change your diet. Get rid of all products high in sugar, those that stick to the palate and the processed foods. Do not eat sweets as these contribute to decay.
