Is your brushing method scientific?
Did you know that brushing your teeth can be “learning.”
First of all, a health toothbrush that meets the requirements of oral hygiene can play the role of cleaning teeth without damaging teeth and periodontal tissues.
Health toothbrushes should have the following characteristics: the brush head is small and can be rotated flexibly in the mouth.
The bristles are separated reasonably, the bristles are thin and elastic, and the ends of the bristles are round, which is not easy to damage the teeth and gums.
Gingival atrophy requires an interdental brush.
Secondly, fluoride toothpaste is preferred for toothpaste.
Fluoride toothpaste not only inhibits plaque, but also protects the enamel, enhances the acid resistance of the teeth, and prevents dental caries.
Relevant research has confirmed that the temperature of the brushing water should be 30 ° C-36 ° C, because the teeth are stimulated by cold or heat, which not only easily causes gum bleeding, but also affects tooth life.
The correct brushing method can effectively remove plaque and soft dirt from teeth and periodontal tissues. It is recommended to use a vertical brushing method that does not hurt teeth and periodontal tissues. Repeat repeated brushing about 10 times each time.
The upper teeth are brushed from top to bottom, and the lower teeth are brushed from bottom to top.
When brushing the occlusal surface of the upper and lower teeth, brush the tooth occlusal surface above the toothbrush slightly and brush back and forth in the horizontal direction.
In addition to brushing your teeth once in the morning and evening, you should always rinse your mouth after meals.
Brushing your teeth before going to bed at night is generally important, because if you do n’t brush your teeth, during night sleep, bacteria growing in the mouth, calcium residues from food residues and saliva will easily form plaque and tartar, which will cause dental caries and periodontal disease over time.
After each brushing, the toothbrush must be cleaned with water and dried, and the brush head should be placed in a ventilated and dry place with the brush head facing up.
A toothbrush must be replaced every 2-3 months.
