Healthy, snow-white teeth may be the key to looking younger. A charming smile increases our self-esteem and acts as a rejuvenating treatment. Basic activities performed in the home bathroom play a key role here.
Necessary tools: toothbrush, toothpaste, cup, lukewarm water
The basic care for our smile is regular brushing of our teeth with a toothbrush and toothpaste.
Daily care at home is the easiest way to prevent tooth decay and gum problems.
Dental experts believe that regular teeth cleaning is almost a guarantee of a healthy smile.
Remember that taking care of your teeth is not only about preventing caries, but also important prevention of other serious diseases. Bacteria from neglected teeth can contribute to cardiac problems, damage to the kidneys, joints and even the brain.
Therefore, it is extremely important to brush your teeth thoroughly, use dental floss and have regular check-ups with the dentist.
Everything in technology
Dentists have long been recommending the so-called
sweeping technique when brushing teeth. Place the brush at a 45-degree angle to the tooth surface and gently clean your teeth from the gums down. Caution is key – brushing too hard can damage your gums and lead to tooth sensitivity. It is also worth taking care not to press too hard when washing, especially in places where the enamel is thinner.Choosing the right toothbrush is key, and if you use an electric toothbrush, remember to simply run it over the surface of your teeth, without any additional movements.
If you cannot brush your teeth after a meal, rinse them with water or chew gum – sugar-free, of course, with the addition of xylitol which has anti-cariogenic properties. However, people wearing braces should avoid biting the gum.
Flossing – the secret to a beautiful smile
Some people say that dental floss is even more important than a toothbrush.
Even though we sometimes forget to brush, nwe shouldn’t skip flossing. Thanks to it, we can reach places that are difficult to reach with just a toothbrush. The spaces between teeth are an ideal place for food remains, plaque and tartar. Expander floss can be particularly effective by expanding between teeth and removing debris more thoroughly.
Mini toothbrushes resembling small bottle cleaners are an interesting addition to everyday hygiene. They can be adapted together with a specialist to suit your individual needs.
Let’s take care of our teeth, starting with simple actions at home. Good hygiene practices reduce the risk of disease and improve the quality of our lives.
