Oral Hygiene

 

Oral Hygiene is a very wide Topic to talk about that we can’t cover it in a single page. Here we will be talking about the basic Oral Hygiene process.

 

BRUSHING

Use a Soft Bristle Toothbrush with a small stripe of Fluoride Toothpaste. While brushing your teeth, move the brush in small circular motions so that it can reach food particles that may be under your Gum Line. Hold the toothbrush at an angle and brush slowly and carefully. It will take you several minutes to thoroughly brush your teeth. You have to brush up on the lower teeth and down on the upper teeth and the outside, inside and chewing surface of all of your mouth. Before you rinse brush your tounge the roof part of your mouth.

 

We highly advice you to brush you teeth four times daily to avoid the cumulus of food particles and plaque.

 

  • In the morning after Breakfast
  • After Lunch or right after school
  • After Dinner
  • At bedtime

You have to replace your toothbrush with a new one as soon as the bristles start to wear down or fray. Never swallow any toothpaste. They are good for your teeth not for your stomach. After you finish brushing rinse your mouth with water. For an Optimal Oral Hygiene it’s very important to brush and floss daily.

 

FLOSSING

Dental Floss is used to remove food particles and plaque for areas between the teeth that a toothbrush can’t reach. This is a thin thread of waxed nylon which is used to clean between teeth. It’s very important to floss between your teeth everyday.

 

Pull a small length of floss from the dispenser. Wrap the ends of the floss tightly around your middle fingers. Guide the floss between all teeth to the gum line, pulling out any food particles or plaque. Unwrap clean floss from around your fingers as you go so that you have used the floss from beginning to end when you finish. Floss behind all of your back teeth also.

Floss at night to make sure that your teeth are clean before bed. It’s natural that your gums may bleed a little when you first begin flossing. If the bleeding doesn’t stop after the first few times inform us.
