Taking care of your body also includes your oral health. Dental hygiene is the key to preventing any deterioration, infection, and/or disease in your mouth and teeth. Your teeth are one of the first things that people take notice of you, which is why you should take care of it. Here are some tips for healthy teeth, gums, and a beautiful smile.
As easy as it seems, there are probably ways that you could improve your brushing skills. We are all human and make mistakes and luckily there are ways to fix them. Here are some common mistakes and professional advice on how to brush our teeth more effectively:
Not all toothpaste are the same. There are different types designed for different needs depending on the person. Try to look for a toothpaste that has fluoride because it helps maintain good oral health because it protects your teeth from decay and can also help reduce tooth sensitivity. Ask your dental hygienist for their suggestions based on your specific needs. You should choose a toothpaste with the CDA Seal of Approval, as these have had their health benefits verified by the Canadian Dental Association.
Flossing removes plaque and bacteria that your toothbrush cannot reach. Without flossing, you are missing 1/3rd of your tooth surfaces. Flossing helps prevent calculus (tartar) buildup, which can only be removed by professional cleaning. Floss at least once a day and plaque will never get the chance to harden (takes 12-24 hrs. for plaque to harden into calculus). Floss before you brush.
You want to keep your teeth healthy for as long as possible so keep an eye out for early warning signs. Catching problems in a timely manner prevent them from getting worse. If you experience any of the following symptoms, book an appointment with your dentist in Calgary as soon as possible to maintain good dental hygiene.
