Individual hygiene of the oral cavity is carried out with the help of simple things:
Use the brush correctly.
It is not necessary to brush your teeth afterReception of food. It is enough to do this carefully in the morning and in the evening. Doctors and dentists should clean teeth and gums for at least 3 minutes, from right to left, moving from side to center, first from the outer surface, then from the inside. Brush the head of the brush at an angle of 45 degrees to the tooth and do sweeping movements from the gum to the tooth. Finish cleaning by gum massage - with gentle pressure, do circular movements with the grasping of teeth and gums with closed teeth.
Manual or automatic toothbrush.
Toothbrushes are manual and automatic(Electronic or ultrasonic). The latter have removable micro-attachments and a timer. By controlling the speed of rotational movements, they remove the dental plaque well, reaching the most remote areas. As for hand brushes, it is better to choose a brush with frequent bristles of soft or medium stiffness. This bristle penetrates well into the space between the teeth, does not damage the periodontal tissue and easily removes plaque from all surfaces of the teeth. The maximum service life of any brush is 3 months.
Floss will solve any question.
Even the best cleaning is not possibleRemove plaque from the interdental spaces. Food residues accumulating in these areas contribute to the rapid development of caries. Therefore, for cleaning interdental spaces, use flosses - dental floss. They are thick, thin, waxed and even fluorinated. If you are a beginner, you better start with a thin fluorinated thread. Thick can injure the interdental papillae and gingival tissue.
Carefully unwind a long 35-40 thread from the cassetteCm, fix between the thumb and forefinger of both hands. Gently moving the thread forward - back - up, clean the dental spaces. The thread can not be used again.
Straight on the tongue turns.
Complete oral hygiene is impossible without cleaningLanguage. On its surface, a large number of microbes accumulate, which is the cause of bad breath. To remove the plaque from the tongue use a scraper for the tongue or a special brush. Begin cleaning from the root of the tongue, gradually moving towards the front surface with scraping-cleaning movements.
They give fresh breath.
If the gums bleed when using floss,Use an internal irrigation agent. This device completely replaces floss and toothpicks. Irrigator not only quickly and qualitatively removes dental plaque from all hard-to-reach places of the oral cavity, but gently massages the gums with a stream of water, preventing their inflammation and bleeding. Dental elixirs and gels - a pleasant completion of oral care.
