Teeth are exposed to many factors daily. For example, temperature changes with the use of various foods provoke the cracking of enamel. Clicking seeds, opening bottles with teeth is the reason for the chips. The composition of teeth also includes salts. The acid dissolves them and flushes them. So the teeth are destroyed before the time. To maintain the hygiene of the mouth, you should learn to care for your teeth.
About oral hygiene
To prevent the effects of bacterial acids on the enamel of the teeth after eating, rinse the mouth with water or a tooth elixir, gnaw an apple or carrot. Remains of food will be removed from the surface, and a breeding medium for the multiplication of bacteria will be eliminated.
You can also take care of your teeth with the help of consumed food. Eat foods that contain calcium, such as milk and dairy products. You can take calcium gluconate: one to two tablets (pre-crushed) three times a day, washed down with water. Some doctors believe that calcium tablets contain little. They recommend taking medications that combine calcium and vitamin D.
To qualitatively take care of your teeth, toothbrushes should be changed every three months. So, how to distinguish a good brush for teeth from forgery:
– хорошая зубная щетка не может стоить дешево (менее 50 р.);
– appreciate the quality of the package – a brush without a package is suitable for shoes;
– the bristle on good brushes is neat, even, fastened with bunches, the handle is rubberized;
– the bristle is made of special materials, a bad brush is made of rough line;
– after the first application, the bristles of a bad brush will lose their original shape.
Chewing gum to replace the brush is not capable and provide full-fledged dental care is also unlikely, so dentists recommend using it only for single oral hygiene, preferably after eating.
When chewing gum on an empty stomach this process can promote the appearance of gastritis and, if there is this disease, then the peptic ulcer becomes worse. Chewing gum only after eating, you solve the problem of cleaning teeth, and also contribute to the additional allocation of gastric juice, necessary for digestion of food.
You should know that using chewing gum to maintain oral hygiene more than 5 once a day is very harmful. One portion of the gum is allowed to chew no longer than 15 minutes. First, the aromatic, flavorful and refreshing ingredients of the product lose their sharpness in just 10 minutes of intense chewing. Secondly, prolonged, and even more frequent chewing, adversely affects the temporomandibular joint.
Gum does not eliminate the need for proper dental care – you will still have to brush your teeth twice a day.
