Care of the teeth and gums
Careful and proper care maintains the basic teeth functions - chewing and (correct) biting so that the hanging system and joints are not burdened improperly. Regular taking care for the health of teeth and mouth cavity has to start in early childhood and it is essential that children come to the dentist in time. It is also important to teach the child the basic rules of hygiene early enough. Brushing teeth is only one of the strategies to improve the health of mouth cavity. Proper and balanced diet and better knowledge about proper mouth hygiene are also very important.
When a tooth starts to hurt, it is often too late. It is important to check your knowledge about proper care of the teeth when the teeth are still healthy and beautiful.
Mouth hygiene does not consist of only brushing your teeth but cleaning the entire mouth cavity. Brush your teeth with toothbrushes (medium hard or hard), dental floss, interdental brushes and toothpaste. Whitening toothpastes (usually marked with ”whitening”) are not suitable for everyday brushing of your teeth; you should use them only occasionally. Toothpastes for everyday brushing your teeth should contain as much fluor and agents for relieving the inflammation of gums as possible. The mouthwash, which should be used after each brushing of teeth, should contain the same components. It should also contain suitable antiseptic agents and agents for better breath. Teeth should be brushed for at least two minutes and a proper technique should be used.
Brushing of teeth should be followed by gum massage and cleaning of tooth necks with special toothbrushes and toothpaste without abrasive agents. Don't forget to clean the spaces between your teeth with a floss and interdental brush, or the hygiene of your tongue which should be cleaned with a special scraper.
Brush your teeth three times a day or after each meal.
