ORAL AND DENTAL CLEANING
HOW TO PREVENT DENTAL CARIES?
• Brush teeth with a floury toothpaste.
• Use dental floss or other interface tools for the interface of your teeth.
• Balanced nutrition should be considered and a limit should be placed on junk food.
• Consult your dentist about “fluoridation” and “fissure-covering” practices that make your teeth more resistant to dental caries.
• You should visit your dentist regularly for professional dental hygiene and oral examinations.
How long can I use a toothbrush?
It is generally available for 3-4 months. You can understand the damage of the toothbrush looking, separation of hair bundles from each other, their scattering and bowing. The hard-bristled brush can damage your teeth. Children are quicker to damage their brush earlier because they can not apply the right brushing yet.
HOW TO GET THE CORRECT TOOTH BRUSHING TECHNIQUE?
First, the brush should be approximated to the tooth at a 45 degree angle and the tooth should be brushed back and forth in the width direction. Finally, the process is completed by a sweeping motion from the gum downwards. The internal surfaces of the teeth should be brushed by inserting the brush vertically, especially when the frontal areas are narrow. It should not be forgotten that the back faces, back teeth and tongue, where the bacterial plaque and food debris are concentrated, should also be cleaned. Generally only the front face of the front teeth are brushed, so the caries are formed in the posterior area and the tooth stones are in the lower front area cause very little brushing.
Why is it necessary to brush your teeth?
Brushing of the gums should be continued, because the veins feeding the gums have become plump as a result of circulatory disturbances. This is called “congestion” in the medical language. You need to brush for treatment. Thus, the gingival veins heal and the bleeding stops spontaneously. Brushing your gums is the most effective remedy for gum disease.
