Well lybrate-user there are no alternatives when it comes to brushing our own teeth for our own good. And you should brush twice daily. Professional cleaning is advisable in every 6 months. With your habits jus thank God that your teeth are just sensitive and not paining already. May God bless you with wisdom.
Hi. Plaque is a soft transparent layer which gets deposited on the tooth surface after we eat something. Each time it does require a dentist to clean it up. It's in your hands and you have to maintain your oral hygiene. Brush twice daily especially at night time before going to bed. Do warm saline water rinses. You can go to a dentist if you have tartar / Calculus. Because Calculus is a Hard yellowish substance which gets deposited over the tooth surface over a period of time and it does not get removed by brushing.
For your own health and hygiene brush your teeth twice a day. Not liking to brush your teeth daily will ultimately result into other tooth related problems or disease. Go to the dental clinic and clean your teeth.
Get scaling polishing done than brush twice daily especially at night use rexidine plus mouth wash
Plaque can build simultaneously in mouth and if precautions are not taken in long run this can damage your tooth .proper brushing and cleaning after food is very important or else calculus formation taken place .get your teeth cleaned by dentist every 6 months and use sensitivity receiving toothpaste there after.
Dear lybrate-user please make sure you brush your teeth regularly everyday. Use any of d mouthwashes. Use desensiting toothpaste for your sensitive teeth. Regards.
