Oral hygiene is very important and should not be ignored. If we want to have nice and healthy teeth, we should pay attention to this process. When we were little children, we have learned how important is to brush our teeth regularly. Therefore we will not have caries and will not have to go at dentist.
Do you brush your teeth on regular basis?
Healthy habits that you have gained as a child should continue to apply in order to have quality life. According to the experts, teeth should be brushed 2-3 times per day. However, some people think that they should be brushed after every meal in order to protect them from caries. But, according to the health professionals, this opinion is wrong. It is correct that we should take care for our oral health few times a day, but not immediately after a meal.
The acid from the food and your toothbrush are not good combination. So, if you cannot stand not to brush them after a meal, drink a little bit of water. In order not to harm your tooth enamel, you should brush your teeth at least half an hour after eating. Therefore, the saliva in your mouth will help you to neutralize the acid from the food. According to the dentists, you should do your oral hygiene before meal or 30-40 minutes after it.
In addition, you should be careful with your tooth brush and change it on every 3 months. Besides the brush, you should use a thread also. With its help, you can reach the parts that you cannot reach with the toothbrush. A nice smile is the most beautiful thing that man or woman can do. So, be careful and do your oral hygiene on regular basis.
So, as we said, toothbrush, mouthwash and thread together with regular visits to your dentist are guarantee for healthy teeth.
