It is important for your health to adopt impeccable oral hygiene. After all, diseases often start between the teeth. A little prevention combined with a few simple everyday gestures will keep your oral activity in perfect health!
What is oral hygiene?
Oral hygiene, also known as dental hygiene, is a set of actions that removes plaque from the surface of the teeth and keeps your mouth healthy!
Dental hygiene is based on everyday actions such as brushing your teeth and tongue after every meal of the day, flossing or brushing your teeth between teeth and giving your mouth a mouthwash. In addition, oral hygiene also includes the various practices carried out at the dental surgeon's office such as scaling.
What is the benefit of good dental hygiene?
Good dental hygiene allows you to have a beautiful smile, good breath but above all to be in good health! Indeed, it allows you to get rid of food debris and avoid periodontal disease, bad breath and cavities.
How to have good dental hygiene?
- Brushing your teeth
For good oral hygiene, you should first wash your teeth after each meal with your Super Brush 360. For effective brushing, brush your teeth at least twice a day for 2 to 3 minutes. It is ideal to brush your teeth with a toothbrush with soft bristles, as this will prevent damage to your gums and tooth enamel. In addition, it is important to change your toothbrush when the bristles are damaged as it is no longer effective (about every 3 months).
Never clean your teeth parallel to your gums but from the bottom up.
Avoid being relentless
Do not brush your teeth more than 3 times a day. For people who clean their teeth very regularly, opt for an electric toothbrush.
Do not brush your teeth after consuming acidic foods and drinks such as Coca-Cola or white wine.
- A good brushing technique
You must adopt a good brushing technique. To do this, you should place your toothbrush at a 45-degree angle at the edge of the gum. Then, brush your teeth in a circular pattern on the spot to clean effectively between your teeth and the edge of your gum. Then gently work your way up from the gums to the height of the tooth crown. First clean the back teeth and outer surfaces of your teeth. Then the inner surfaces and finally the chewing surfaces.
- Complete brushing with accessories
Complement your teeth brushing with accessories. Dental floss or interdental brushes remove plaque from surfaces that cannot be reached with a toothbrush. This is ideal for people with dentures or loose teeth. Water jet appliances remove food debris and massage the gums.
At least one annual check-up at the dentist
It is essential to go to the dentist for a check-up at least once a year. This visit allows you to check for possible cavities and to have your teeth cleaned to remove plaque. If you allow plaque to develop, it could eventually cause your teeth to loosen.
- Good nutrition for oral hygiene
Opt for a healthy and varied diet! This will help prevent cavities, gum inflammation and tooth erosion. Sugar should be consumed in moderation, just like soft drinks, alcohol or citrus fruit juices, in order to have beautiful teeth.
Here are a few products that are beneficial to your oral health:
