IYou must systematically visit all surfaces of the tooth with toothpaste of fluoride for at least two minutes, twice a day. Unfortunately, we live so lively that putting two minutes aside for some people seems like life.
Your teeth tend to be a little softer after eating, so wait for at least half an hour. Then, swipe all along the right-hand line with a little cleaning. Do not push too much or be too light.
It is very important to remove the bacteria – the tooth plaque – from your teeth. If you do not remove it, your gum will irritate and then bleed. Some people think that it means they need to heal them, but all that happens is that bacteria stay on your teeth. If you want to be sure to do it effectively, buy tablets that reveal chemist's plaques that will stain the bacteria that remain.
There is some evidence that electric toothbrushes are a bit better than manual brushes – but be sure to continue using them in a systematic way.
Tooth brushing fights against gum disease; The toothpaste of fluoride stops decomposition. Spit the toothpaste, but do not rinse. The mouthwash itself will not do the job done by brushing the toothpaste. If you want to use a mouthwash, spit it again rather than rinse.
Ask your dentist or hygienist about the tooth's end. For most people, good brushing will be enough. Others may be more susceptible to gum disease and must do more, such as using interdental brushes (for gaps between teeth) and a thread (where the teeth have a firm contact).
