In the first place, proper maintenance of oral hygiene is very important. This prevents the formation of a dental plaque (a soft backing on the teeth) which, if not eliminated, allows the sedimentation of the toothpaste and thus opens the pathway to the development of periodontal disease. Cleaning teeth with a brush is the most effective way of maintaining oral hygiene. In doing so, it is necessary to use a good brush, toothpaste often enough and that the washing lasts for a long time, and that the correct technique of washing teeth and taking care of a braces.
Appropriate Washing Technique Is Very Important
When talking about brushes, it is recommended to use moderately hard brushes for daily use, as they are effective enough to remove the dental plaque, while not hindering the sensitive mucous membrane of the gum. The top of the brush needs to be a maximum of three and a centimeter wide, whereby the fibers must not exceed 12 mm in length and should have all the same lengths, made of natural or synthetic fibers. Naturals are better than synthetic because they do not absorb water, so they do not swell and do not change shape, nor are they porous, and there is no possibility of retaining bacteria on them.
As for the frequency and length of teeth washing, they should be followed after each meal, and a minimum in the morning and in the evening, for at least three minutes.
- Always use a medium hard brush; it is sufficient for the basic tooth wash while doing so will not damage the gums.
- The teeth are best to wash after each meal, and at least twice a day – in the morning and in the evening.
- Put the brush from the outside of the tooth partially to the teeth, and partly to the gums. Then, with light vibrating movements, move the brush left-right, allowing fibrous brushes to pass between the teeth.
- Follow the inside of the front tooth with a brush straight up to your teeth pulling it up and down.
- The inner side of the side teeth follows the pulling brush up at the lower teeth or down to the upper teeth.
- Biting surfaces are followed by circular movements with a flat-mounted brush.
- Change the toothbrush regularly; most after 3-4 months.
Braces For Teeth Deformities
Movable and fixed braces to correct deformities of teeth, among which the most common is too little or too large a gap between teeth, is bringing more children. Doctors point out that these anomalies are best noticed at the time of permanent teeth, that is, at the age of seven to eight years.
Movable brace. To help the dentures really help parents and children, they should adhere to a few tips. Movable braces have to be worn regularly because only then can help. Sometimes it is necessary to wear them for years and do not give up when it is noticed that the situation has improved slightly. In order not to cause infection in the mouth, the prostheses must be kept steadily, which means that they are washed with brush and paste, just like teeth. When the brace is not in the mouth, it should not be kept in the water, but in a dry, clean pot. When it is removed, it should be washed with a brush and clean in a container, and before replacing it, it is sprayed with water, since the dry can be unpleasant on the right.
Fixes brace. Cleaning a fixed prosthesis is not tricky, it’s only time-consuming. However, we must be aware that if we do not clean our teeth properly while wearing this prosthesis – they will break very quickly, so we have only replaced the problem of dental teeth for the issue of rotten teeth. Also, the food stuck between the prosthesis and teeth can damage your teeth.
Braces Require Care and Hygiene
First of all, it is important to remove all food residues that have been stuck between the prosthesis and the teeth. Toothpaste, interdental brush, and soft toothbrush are used for this purpose. Dental floss should be pulled between teeth and brace’s strings. After you have drawn the floss into the interlocking space as far as possible, without causing pain, slide it with one tooth and gently pull along its surface. Repeat the same procedure by cleaning each tooth, and in the order between the teeth of the upper to lower the fork.
Interdental brushes have a small pattern, so they are convenient to clean the cramped spaces between the wire of the fixed prosthesis and teeth. If some teeth are separated – this brush should also clean the part between these teeth. The toothbrush is used quite commonly, as well as when you do not have a prosthesis.
Even after cleaning teeth and braces, certain parts that are not adequately washed because they are physically inaccessible remain. Therefore, after the mechanical removal of food residues, mouthwash should be used. It is recommended that it be a fluoride fluid because it is an element which, on the one hand, damages the bacteria, and on the other, protects the surface of the teeth from failure.
