What Should We Pay Attention For Healthy Teeth?

Our teeth are among the most sensitive and demanding parts of our body. If we do not give them the necessary attention, many discomforts may arise not only in our mouth but also in different areas of our body. In this article, we explained what needs to be done on the way to healthy teeth.

Check-up every six months

Teeth should be brushed twice a day, one before going to bed. For proper cleaning, an interface brush or dental floss should be used. Dentist control should be every 6 months.

Regular dental cleaning

While brushing the teeth, the tongue should also be brushed. For more effective brushing, the chosen toothbrush should be soft. Tooth brushing time should not be less than 2 minutes. Teeth should be cleaned at regular intervals.

The importance of mouthwash

Mouthwash should be used to increase the effectiveness of tooth brushing. Toothbrush should be changed every 2-3 months. Tooth whiteners should be used under the supervision of a doctor. Objects such as pencils and buckles should not be inserted into the mouth as they may damage the tooth structure.

Smoking should be avoided

Situations such as teeth grinding and squeezing should be taken under control, as they will damage the tooth enamel. Smoking should be avoided to protect oral and dental health and to prevent oral cancers. Sugary gums and viscous candies that stick to the teeth are harmful because they cannot be cleaned with saliva. They should be consumed as little as possible.

Beware of carbonated drinks

Fruits that increase salivation in the mouth such as orange, tangerine, kiwi, lemon, grapefruit should be consumed. If possible, a piece of cheese should be consumed after eating dessert. After each meal, you should drink water or rinse your mouth. Since carbonated drinks can erode tooth enamel, their consumption should be limited.
