The common enemy of teeth and gums is "plaque". Plaque is a sticky, colorless deposit accumulating on teeth surfaces. It forms an ideal base for the development of bacteria whose toxins are harmful to teeth and gums, leading to caries, gingivitis and periodontitis.
Regular teeth brushing of teeth removes plaque and food debris from the outer and inner surfaces of the teeth.
The brush bristles should be laid down at an angle of 45 degrees to the gums and the brush should make small circular movements, keeping the bristles more or less in the same place, which allows longer, outer bristles to remove plaque below the gums and between the teeth.
One should focus and brush each tooth for about 10 seconds.
When using a brush, only three of the five sides of each tooth are cleaned.
Therefore, the other two sides, between the teeth, require special care to avoid the accumulation of plaque and food particles.
Caries and gum disease
Since caries and gum disease start in these parts, dental floss should be used every day.
The rinsing liquid is an ideal addition to the daily use of the brush and dental floss.
It has a double effect
- slows down plaque formation
- helps prevent tooth decay.
