Learn The Ideal Brushing Habits!

Learn The Ideal Brushing Habits!

Brushing too hard.

All of us have heard by now that brushing hard may not be the solution to our dental woes.Going the soft gentle and frequent way is what we need to do so if you're still in the habit of waging a morning battle with your teeth let's try and remind ourselves to be gentle and clean them like porcelain not scrub them like the toilet bowl. 

Hardly brushing.

If you're in the habit of hardly brushing which means either brushing too quickly or brushing just once a day it can cost you! 

As food accumulates and bacteria breakdown this accumulated food into acids which dissolve enamel -cavities are formed. These cavities need dental visits to fill up.

If small they can be done sooner and economically but if large they can end up causing you a lot of pain and even requiring multiple avoidable sittings.

Brushing with hard bristles.

Hard bristles tend to damage the teeth and we see multiple patients with severely work down teeth by just self inflicted brushing damage. Imagine thinking you're preventing a problem and actually creating one. While we commend the efforts of anyone who looks after their oral health we also ensure that overzealous brushes should use nothing more than extra soft bristles.

Not replacing your brush.

Replacing your brush is the most neglected aspect of oral hygiene that leaves everyone guessing  and being a small detail even your dentist would most likely forget to discuss it. So here's the answer to your dilemma of when to replace your brush - ideally every 3-4 months or when the bristles start to fray whichever happens first. 

Replacing brushes or brush heads has even proven to reduce throat infections as old bristles tend to start harbouring bacteria besides being inefficient at cleaning as well.

Not flossing.

Flossing hasn't been in our culture or education. We probably encountered a floss much later than we saw or learnt to use a brush. It's very important that just like brushing is second nature to us or comes automatically so should flossing be taught and instilled in our system. 

Flossing prevents the most number of cavities even more than brushing since not all brushes reach the areas that entrap food but floss definitely does. 

It is ideally recommended to start your cleaning routine by flossing and then brushing. 

An inexpensive method to save a lot of time and dental costs.

Dear lybrate-user, the treatment that deals with straightening of mal-aligned teeth is called as orthodontic treatment. Its a process that typically takes about 18-24 months. Cost essentially differs from city to city and the kind of braces/technique that you would like your dentist to use.

Soda and fizzy cold drinkers have found to be very errosive effect on your teeth and can increase the incidence of decay as well as it makes the enamel soft and hence more prone to decay. So avoid having them often.

They say, prevention is better than cure. So why not prevent yourself from the consumption of cigarettesĀ  or smokeless tobacco and reduce the risk of oral health diseases lilke tooth decay, gingivitis, oral cancer and periodontis.

Since teeth cleaning is as important for children as for adults, they should use a toothbrush which has a small round head and soft bristles. It helps in cleaning their milk teeth thoroughly.

Homoeopathic medicine---------------- echenesia 30 (dr reckeweg) drink 2 drops in 1 spoon fresh water 3 times daily------------------- b. C.-18 (dr reckeweg) chew 4 tabs every 4 hrly ------------------------- hekla lavatooth powder (wheezal) scrub teeth daily night-------------------------- tooth paste in morning with any tooth paste of your choice---------------------------- report after 1 months--------------------- take following precautions for your teeth------------------ 1. Drinks: coffee and red wine cause major damage to teeth. But other drinks with high acidity, such as soda, juices and even sports drinks can cause damage staining on the teeth because of its tannins and acidic nature wear away at the tooth enamel. These acidic drinks lowers the ph of teeth below 6 thus causing corrosive wear and tear of teeths. 2. Certain foods: all sweets, candies, popscicles, damage teeth due to its high sugar content. So avoid them as much as you can and if you eat do not forget to rinse your mouth with water immediately after finishing it--------------------------------------- 3. Every time you take meals or eat something make sure to rinse your mouth with water and with homoeopathic rinseout gargles (sbl) after every meals---------------------------------- 4. Use any brand paste for brushing teeth in morning but never forget to scrub teeth with hekla lavatooth powder (wheezal) at night just before sleep.------------------------------------- 5. If possible start a habit of chewing neem stick (datuun) in the morning as it not anly scrubs our teeth but its juice acts as a good antiseptic and antibiotic to destroy the harmful bacterias stuck in out teeth cavities and inbetween teeth.

I have sensitivity problem and my tooth suddenly starts aching on hitting something hard.

Dentist, Kolar
I have sensitivity problem and my tooth suddenly starts aching on hitting something hard.
This could b either due to sensitivity due to loss of enamel surface or due to decay of tooth. Tooth decay can b treated by filling of tooth or by rct n capping of the decay is deep. Sensitivity can b reduced by using desensitizing toothpaste such as senquelf or sensodyne toothpaste by rubbing some amount of toothpaste onto your tooth surface n wait till 5 mins before rinsing it off. Get your teeth evaluated by dentist to know the cause of your problem n get treated accordingly. Regards.

Unfortunately implants will cost you that much, but you can go for fixed denture instead of implant which will be much cheaper.

I have a very bad mouth odour. I am 43 years old. Female. I have got teeth cleaned and they say there is no problem in my denture. Every half an hour once I have to use the mouth wash to get rid of this odour please help.

Well you need to visit a prosthodontist! you need to get a dental checkup. Get teeth cleaned. If there is any decay or cavity get them treated. Sometimes your denture act as a source of infection so I suggest you to go for flexible dentures which are without wires and easy to maintain. Discard your old denture and please visit a specialist dentist. Also drinks lots of water. Avoid eating garlic &onion, brush twice daily!

You have tarter and calculus deposited on teeth surface and between gums and teeth surfaces. Due to that infaction is spread on gums and leads to swellown and bleeding gum problems. You require through scaling and polishing followed by further examination of periodontal pocket and require opg xray to rule out status of bone. Kindly consult dentist or periodontist regarding treatment of your problems.

The simplest method of removing minor surface stains is polishing, or micro-abrasion if staining is more intrinsic. Provided that your discolouration is not due to inadequate enamel exposing the dentin, tooth whitening (bleaching) is often the most effective treatment for yellow stained teeth. Advance procedures can be done with laser. Use snowdent tooth paste for whitening until then. Apply snowdent paste on the teeth. Wait for 10 to 15 min. Then brush your teeth with the same paste. Applying it overnight for better results.

If your tooth paste does not contain flouride, there can be a risk of tooth decay and the tooth enamel may even start to wither away.

I advice you first quit the habit. For bad breath I advice you go for scaling (professional tooth cleaning) and then use mouthwash 2 times in a day for 15 days.
