No matter what food and drink we consume, it leaves a mark on the teeth. For this reason, it is very important to brush your teeth after every meal.This habit, which is gained in childhood, becomes a routine that will be very useful in the future and will protect your oral health.
Your dentist is the person who will give you the best dental care before and after the dental treatment you receive. Therefore, it is beneficial for both parties to follow the doctor's checks regularly and to be in contact. Ultimately, both the dentist and the patient who come to the treatment want to be satisfied with the result.
After brushing your teeth after every meal, flossing, mouthwash or, if you have had a treatment process, applying the care ritual that you have determined with your doctor opens the door to a healthy smile.
The toothbrush used for brushing teeth is generally recommended with a medium hardness and a small head. When the head of the brush is small, the nauseous reflex of the stomach is prevented as it moves towards the back teeth during brushing.
Brands with fluoride in toothpastes should be preferred.
Squeezing the toothpaste on the toothbrush as much as half of the chickpeas is sufficient for a healthy brushing.
It is necessary to use different brands alternately, not constantly. Due to the change of shape and size of the abrasives in the toothpastes, the formation of abrasion on the tooth originating from the toothpastes in the same direction is prevented.
In tooth brushing technique, the toothbrush should be held at an angle of 45 degrees. Tooth brushing should be done in soft circular motions from front to back. Tooth brushing should be started at the level of the gums. In this way, the health of both your teeth and gums is taken care of. If your gums bleed while brushing, brushing should be continued with gentle movements. Toothbrush is personal and recommended to be changed every 3 or 4 months.
Dental care is a daily care routine that lasts a lifetime and brings you together with your health day by day.
