You must always keep your mouth and teeth healthy and clean by thorough, gentle brushing and flossing routines. This would save you from plaque or other gum diseases, cause by bacteria, on your teeth, resulting in dental decay, tartar, gingivitis and periodontitis and many more.
These problems are caused by sugary food and poor dental and oral hygiene. Plaque gets accumulated on the teeth surface, all because of sugar and starch in your food, causing the release of an acid. This acid damages the teeth in so many different ways, by corroding the tooth and making cavities. It would also cause gum irritation, bleeding, which leads to bad smell, and can be really embarrassing.
Constant formation of plaque cause a yellow or brown mineral deposit called tartar or calculus. And it would start spreading towards gums, after affecting the teeth.
Gingivitis is a kind of a gum inflammation, causing painless bleeding, while brushing and flossing.
Periodontitis is an extreme condition of a gum disease, which results in the destruction of structures, supporting teeth, including the bone. This would lead to tooth sensitivity due to bleeding, bad breath, mobility of the teeth, tooth loss and abscessed teeth.
This condition causes redness, swelling and bleeding gums. The resulting widening spaces between the teeth and the roots get exposed to decay. If left untreated, gingivitis might lead to severe condition of gum disease.
Regular brushing and flossing is the simplest way to reduce and prevent dental problems. And for professional cleaning, always go to your dental hygienist or dentist. Plaque and calculus is removed by dentist or hygienist, by way of scaling. Many professionals prescribe medications like chlorhexidine gluconate, a mouth wash, to help kill the bacteria in our mouth, along with frequent cleaning and flossing.
A surgery might be needed to minimize the progression of periodontal disease, in severe cases. It is also used to replace bone, lost in advanced stages of the disease.
Research shows that heart attacks and strokes are somehow linked to gum disease, resulting from poor oral hygiene.
Eating sweets only with main meals and not between meals would neutralize most of the acids and wouldn't cause as much damage to teeth surface. Milk and water must replace sugary, acidic drinks.
A sonic care toothbrush, with its advanced cleaning technology, is perfect for cleaning your teeth the correct and safe way. It has a slim, angled neck that fits comfortably in your mouth and its bristles vibrate super fast, so your teeth get hundreds or thousands of brush strokes in a single two-minute brushing (compare that with your regular manual toothbrush).
Sonic Care Toothbrushes offer a tremendous innovation when it comes to taking care of your oral health. SonicCare is not just an ordinary electric toothbrush. It's a high-tech dental cleaning tool that uses sonic (sound) waves to blast plaque off your teeth while giving you a gentle, comfortable brushing experience.
I asked my dentist what I should be doing at home to take care of my teeth. "They sky's the limit, I'll do anything!" I told him, even though I have healthy teeth already. I think my smile is important and I want to take care of it!
He said just two simple things were more than enough to maintain my healthy teeth between semi-annual professional cleanings. Brush twice a day with a sonic care toothbrush, and floss once a day. That's it! It's easy and I know I am reaping the rewards with a bright smile and healthy teeth and gums.
If you want a white, brighter smile, and healthier teeth and gums, a Sonic Care toothbrush is the number one tool to keep in your bathroom!
