Dental Health Care For Healthy Teeth

Healthy teeth reflect your oral hygiene. Dental health care is as important a part of your health care as care for any other body part. It’s often been observed that people pay less attention to their teeth when it comes to taking care for their oral health and therefore land up at the dentist’s clinic with tooth and gum problems such as cavities, plaque, gingivitis, tooth decay etc.


Healthy Teeth

To maintain oral hygiene it is fore most important to have healthy teeth and for this, one should know how to brush their teeth properly and regularly. Incorrect brushing technique can also lead to tooth abrasion, a condition in which the surface of the tooth is worn away. Tooth abrasion is caused by using faulty tooth brush. The delicate gum tissue is also at risk for damage from the toothbrush bristles, causing tooth sensitivity from exposed root surfaces.

Tips For Healthy Teeth By Proper Brushing:

  • TIP ( 1 )

Always brush twice a day, preferably first thing in the morning and again right before you go to sleep to have healthy teeth. Try not to eat or drink anything once you have brushed in the evening.

  • TIP ( 2 )

When brushing someone else’s teeth, say your child’s try to stand behind him / her so you are looking down on their mouth. This will allow easier access to the mouth and a better view of their teeth. Brushing the teeth properly is an important aspect of dental health care to keep your teeth healthy and clean.

  • TIP ( 3 )

Never use a worn out tooth brush as it gives more harm than benefit. Replace your tooth brush every three months or when you notice the bristles starting to bend and look worn out. Always replace your tooth brush after you recover from a cold or the flu.

  • TIP ( 4 )

While brushing the inside surfaces of the upper and lower teeth, try to avoid standing too close to your mirror, as the flick will usually cause some spray.

  • TIP ( 5 )

Start with the back teeth concentrating on the front surface of the tooth and work in a clockwise direction from there.

  • TIP ( 6 )

Hold the toothbrush parallel to your teeth, and point the bristles in the direction of the tissue. For proper dental health and healthy teeth, the gums should be protected while brushing and should not be harmed with the use of hard brush. Always use soft tooth brush.

  • TIP ( 7 )

Gently move the brush in a circular motion for approximately 20 brush strokes, or roughly 10 seconds.

  • TIP ( 8 )

When brush strokes are complete, roll the bristles away from the gum tissue in a sweeping motion.

  • TIP ( 9 )

Continue the above steps until all of the front surfaces of the top and bottom teeth have been cleaned.

  • TIP ( 10 )

Moving to the inner surfaces of the teeth, repeat steps 5 to 9 for the upper and lower premolars and molars.

  • TIP ( 11 )

When you clean the inside surface of the front teeth, known as lingual surface, take the tip of the tooth brush, and in a flicking motion, direct the tooth brush from the gum line down. Do this 2 to 3 times.

  • TIP ( 12 )

Follow step 11 for the inside of the lower front teeth, but this time the flick will be directed up, again, away from the gum line. Do this 2 to 3 times.

  • TIP (13 )

Brush the biting surface of the upper and lower premolars and molars. Complete set of teeth and mouth should be cleaned thoroughly for total oral hygiene.

  • TIP ( 14 )

Gently brush your tongue and the inside of your cheeks.

  • TIP ( 15 )

Finish by rinsing with water or mouthwash. Following these health tips will not only give you complete dental health care and oral hygiene but also a set of healthy teeth, which you will be proud of.
