Types Of Toothbrushes

Types of Toothbrushes-min
Ever wonder whether or not the high-tech looking toothbrush that is on display on your dentist office is decisively more effective in cleaning your mouth than the one you have at home. What about that toothbrush that uses AA batteries? And the toothbrush that you plug into the wall?

Apart from practicing the proper fundamentals of brushing your teeth, which include brushing technique, frequency, and the amount of time you spend brushing, the type of toothbrush you use largely impacts the efficiency at which you preserve and improve the overall status of your oral health.

There are essentially three different types of toothbrushes. These being the rechargeable electric toothbrush (typically refereed to as sonic toothbrush), the battery operated toothbrush, and the regular manual toothbrush.

Dentist Brisbane: All Natural Ways Of Preventing Bacteria Build Up In Your Mouth

Correct Flossing Techniques

Correct Flossing Techniques-minThere aren’t many things that are better than flossing when it comes cleaning the hard-to-reach corners of your teeth. That is except for flossing with proper techniques. Proper flossing techniques allow you to more effectively remove bacteria and plaque buildup.

Before flossing your teeth, always keep in mind to thoroughly wash your hands first, as your fingers and mouth will come into close proximity with each other.

What Makes For Proper Flossing

Always make sure that you use enough floss. Ideally, you want to break off an 18-inch long dental floss. This length allows you a clean segment of dental floss as you clean between interdental spaces. Wrap both ends of the dental floss on either the index or middle finger of either hands.

Use a gentle sliding motion when cleaning interdental spaces. It also helps when you make it a point to use a zigzag motion when flossing. Be very careful not to let the floss snap when cleaning between the teeth.

Remember that the letter “C” makes for the perfect flossing shape. As such form a C-shape with your floss as you keep it wrapped around your teeth. When flossing, always floss following an upward motion, starting on the gum line.

Roll your floss. Using your thumb as guide, unroll a fresh section of dental floss from your fingers as you move from one interdental gap to another. Also, always make it a point to floss the back of your teeth.

Dental Strength Training

DENTAL STRENGTH TRAINING-minGenerally, people who are over 6 years old are encouraged to use fluoride toothpaste when brushing their teeth. It is also a good idea for children younger than 6 years old to use fluoride toothpaste especially if they are at a particularly high risk of developing dental carries and other unwanted dental anomalies.

Toothpaste and other products prepared with fluoride are known reinforce dental strength by actively preventing dental decay. Moreover, fluoride helps repair dental surfaces that suffers from a minor case of decalcification, which is typically the first stage of dental decay.

Warning

While fluoride is readily available in most public water supply, constantly growing bodies of related research suggests that it is fluoridated toothpaste that best protects your teeth against dental carries. It is, however, important to remember to always spit out fluoride toothpaste, no matter good the flavor maybe. No toothpaste, to date, has ever been formulated to be swallowed, purposely and in frequent regularity.

What Causes Dry Mouth

What Causes Dry Mouth Syndrome-minEssentially, dry mouth stems from a prominent lack of saliva production. Saliva is important as it keeps both dental and periodontal surfaces moist enough, thereby neutralizing potential bacteria damage and creating a healthy oral environment.

While dry mouth isn’t ideal, everyone experiences episodes of dry mouth every now and then. It is in this case that dry mouth is pretty much normal. Persistent and recurring episodes of dry mouth, however, are another thing. Medically referred to xerostomia, frequent episodes of dry mouth maybe symptomatic of improperly working salivary glands.

  • Xerostomia. or chronic dry mouth, can result from a number of possible causes. Among the most common of which include:
  • Disease. There is a wide of range of unwanted medical anomalies that could easily ruin the salivary glands, and therefore cause dry mouth. These include diabetes, Parkinson’s disease, HIV/AIDS, and Sjogren’s., among many others.
  • Medication. At present, 400 different types of medicine are documented to cause persistent dry mouth. Among the most common of which include antihistamines, decongestants, painkillers, diuretics, and anti-depression medication.
