There is no perfect oral cavity, however, by following a few simple tips, we can spare ourselves a lot of headaches. If you’re also interested in how to make your smile even brighter, read this post!
Prevention of aphthae
One common problem is the appearance of tiny black ulcers on the mucous membranes. Prevention is important not only in those under 12 years of age, but also in adulthood. It is a fact that we do not know the exact cause, at least we have experienced what we can do against the ulcer that has developed. If you do not want to suffer from aphthous, accept the following:
- Avoid acidic foods as they irritate the mucous membranes and cause minor injuries. If we often suffer from ulcers, it’s worth keeping a diary so we’ll see what foods we ate that day. Unfortunately, coffee and alcohol are also a friend of afta, so let’s try to reduce the dose.
- I’m certainly not saying anything new to pay attention to oral hygiene. Bacteria from decomposing foods multiply easily, so in addition to aphthous, we will also have to face other problems.
- Mouth rinsing is good, but it doesn’t matter that. If you see that you are strong, alcoholic, you better put it back on the shelf. Some observations suggest that sodium lauryl sulfate (NLS) should also be avoided.
- Interestingly, aphtha often occurs due to food allergies. The most common allergens: strawberries, coffee, chocolate, eggs, nuts, citrus fruits, gluten. In this case, always consult a specialist.
Treatment of caries
Another common oral cavity problem is caries. Maybe no one needs to explain its meaning because one day we must have suffered from it. Tooth decay is a bit insidious, but don’t think it’s impossible to fight it. You can overcome it by following the tips below!
- Let’s brush our teeth. I do not think I am saying anything new, but the importance of this point must be emphasized again and again. Most people still use their old toothbrushes when the electric one cleans much better. In addition, you should use dental floss after brushing your teeth in the evening.
- We have already mentioned it in the case of aphthae, but here too nutrition is an important aspect. It is best to eat raw vegetables and fruits often. Strong chewing starts saliva production, so we brush our teeth. It is very important to give it to the kids as well.
- Unfortunately, in today’s world, it is very difficult to eliminate carbohydrates, although caries often occurs because of this. Think of soft bread, sugars, sweets. Bacteria literally love such media, and certainly caries is becoming more common.
How many times do we brush our teeth?
With the exception of aphthous and caries, it is worth paying attention to the health of our teeth. We will often receive several answers to the above question. Some believe we brush our teeth after every meal, but at least in the morning and evening. It is best to open and close the day with this. It is important to note that we should always use dental floss after brushing our teeth in the evening, so that even the most hidden pieces of food do not remain between our teeth.
How long does brushing take?
With a few seconds of brushing, we will do a lot of surface work. If we can, wash for 2 or 3 minutes. Let’s try to reach the very end of our mouths and never miss our tongues. Interestingly, most people struggle with bad breath because a lot of bacteria live their happy lives at the base of their tongues. It’s true that it’s not always pleasant to reach our throats with a toothbrush, but let’s never miss it out of our daily routine.
Immediately after each meal?
If someone ends up in the bathroom after each meal, you might want to consider a rule. If you ate acidic food, you have to wait half an hour! Lemons, oranges, tomatoes all belong here. If we rush to brush our teeth immediately after consuming them, the toothpaste will amplify the effect of the acids and we will destroy the tooth enamel. After 30 minutes, this danger no longer exists.
How to brush your teeth?
Many people make the mistake of scratching their teeth with all their might. But just think about what they are actually achieving. A friss plaque is soft as it has only been in our mouths for a few hours. We can get rid of it with a few light movements, so with a strong wash we only wear the enamel. The harder we do it, the faster it will wear. Tartar can only be removed by a professional anyway, it is enough if we only focus on the dirt. The secret lies more in the technique. Choose a soft, dense bristle, possibly a medium bristle toothbrush, which can be conventional or electric. In the latter, be careful not to press it hard on your teeth, but rather focus on your movements.
How often do we change the toothbrush?
Not only can a toothbrush be damaged, it can also be filled with bacteria, which is why we replace it every three months. If the bristles separate prematurely, it means that our technique is incorrect and we are washing our teeth too hard. If after three months it looks exactly like it did in your new age, you may suspect less effective brushing your teeth.
What kind of toothpaste should we buy?
Besides the technique, it doesn’t matter what we brush our teeth with. Always choose a baby toothpaste for your child as it contains other ingredients. When the first permanent teeth emerge, we can switch to the use of toothpastes with higher fluoride content. And adults should also choose a toothpaste according to fluoride.
Is the toothbrush enough?
We are not convinced to stress that using a toothbrush is not enough. Let’s take out dental floss at least in the evenings because that’s the only way we can penetrate between our teeth and expel tiny pieces of food. After the first use, we will most likely experience bleeding as the gums respond to external influences. This usually resolves after 3 days. At the silk, be careful that if you are very tense between the two teeth, you can cut into your gums with a sudden twitch.
Chewing instead of brushing your teeth?
Chewing can be a quick fix if we can’t brush our teeth. However, keep in mind that it does not reach between the teeth. Its advantage is that it triggers saliva production, which drives away bacteria. However, let’s not overdo this either, as chewing all day only rubs off our jaw joints.
