HEALTHY TEETH AND HEALTHY GUMS - HOW TO CARE FOR THEM?
A radiant smile and healthy teeth and gums are the results of careful oral hygiene.
Proper and regular oral hygiene prevents tooth decay, plaque build-up, and gum disease.
In addition, maintaining good oral hygiene can prevent the onset of serious health problems.
A study published by the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research shows that 91% of adults aged between 20 and 64 years had caries in their permanent teeth. In addition, 27% of these adults have incurable dental diseases. The good news is that most of these problems can be prevented with consistent and proper oral hygiene.
HEALTHY TEETH & GUMS - 14 TIPS:
1. Always brush your teeth before going to bed
It is recommended to brush your teeth at least twice a day. But the key is to brush before going to bed. Saliva, which helps to remove the bacteria that cause cavities, is not produced in large enough quantities during sleep. That’s why brushing your teeth before bed is essential. In addition, brushing prevents acid from eroding your teeth overnight.
2. Brush with the correct technique
Place the toothbrush at a 45-degree angle to the gum and then make small circular movements from the gum towards the tooth, i.e. away from the gum. Brushing properly also means remembering the inner surfaces of the teeth and that brushing should take about 3 minutes.
3. Don't forget to brush your tongue too
Brushing removes bacteria from the tongue and reduces the chance of bad breath. So clean your tongue gently with a toothbrush or use a tongue scraper. Removing bacteria from the tongue also reduces the chance of cavities.
4. Floss your teeth daily
In addition to brushing, flossing is also recommended as the brush does not reach all areas of the tooth and plaque can build up between the teeth. Regular flossing removes plaque, which helps to prevent cavities or gingivitis.
5. Avoid tobacco products
This is one of the best things you can do for your teeth and overall health. Not only does tobacco stain teeth and cause bad breath, but it can also cause oral cancer and periodontal complications.
6. Reduce sweet drinks and snacks
Sugar is converted into acid in the mouth, which can then lead to cavities and damage to tooth enamel. Choose healthier options such as water, unsweetened tea, and fruit.
7. Choose crunchy fruit and vegetables for snacks
Enjoy crunchy snack foods such as apples, celery, and carrots, which can help clean food debris from between your teeth.
8. Get your daily dose of calcium
Eating foods rich in calcium and vitamin D can help strengthen your teeth, bones and help maintain healthy gums.
9. Drink more water
Water does not affect tooth staining or cause plaque. It helps prevent cavities by washing away sugar and acid that might be lingering on your teeth.
10. Change your toothbrush regularly
Dentists recommend replacing your toothbrush every 3 months or immediately after an illness. Can you remember the last time you changed your toothbrush?
11. Uporabite oralno raztopino
The right choice of oral solution can do much more than just mask bad breath. It can help reduce plaque build-up, gingivitis, cavities, etc…
12. Visit your dentist regularly
Regular visits to your dentist can help prevent tooth and gum problems. So go to the dentist 1 – 2 times a year. When was the last time you saw your dentist?
13. Don't ignore if something hurts you
If you experience a toothache or chipped teeth, gum sensitivity, or sore gums, don’t wait to see your dentist, as he or she can identify the cause and help prevent the condition from getting worse.
14. Keep your teeth and gum cleaning tools clean
Clean the toothbrush well after use. Store it in an upright position without covering the brush head, as this can cause bacteria and mold to grow. Wash and dry the glass or cup used for rinsing with mouthwash after use.
