Dental Care Tips Dentists in Scottsdale Want to Instill in You

PowerPoint Presentation:

Your dental health speaks a lot about your overall well-being. Hence, taking good care of it is essential. Though there are number of ways to care for your oral health, dentists in Scottsdale agree to four basic but paramount steps to a healthier mouth—brushing, flossing, eating properly, and vising the dentist.

Brushing:

It is common knowledge that brushing should be done at least twice daily. This is to ensure that you remove films of bacteria in your teeth known as plaque. But do you think you know how to properly brush your teeth? Brush up on your techniques with these tips . Brushing

PowerPoint Presentation:

Use a soft-bristled-brush for your teeth, gums, and tongue. Brushing becomes more effective if it takes at least 120 seconds—that’s right, a full two minutes! Don’t believe everything that you see in commercials. In reality, a pea-sized dab of fluoride toothpaste is enough to clean your set of teeth. Use short, circular, and gentle brushing strokes as opposed to a back-and-forth motion. Don’t be in a hurry; try to brush each tooth (both the front and the back part) in the same manner .

PowerPoint Presentation:

Don’t press the brush too hard against your teeth, or else you’ll be damaging the tooth enamel. Do not forget your tongue! Did you know that it has the most bacteria in your mouth? Give you tongue some gentle strokes, as well, starting from the back end towards its tip to minimize bacteria buildup and freshen your breath. Brush your teeth about an hour after a meal. Brushing immediately after may weaken your teeth. Replace your toothbrush every three to four months. Also, if you recently got a cold, you should immediately replace your toothbrush .

Flossing:

Brushing might not get rid of particles between your teeth. This is where flossing comes into the picture. By flossing, you can limit the risk of plaque hardening into tartar. Use about 18 inches of floss. Clean beneath the gumline , but be careful to avoid accidentally snapping the floss on your gums. Dentists in Scottsdale recommend flossing once a day, preferably before bedtime. Floss your teeth prior to brushing to loosen food particles trapped between your teeth. Flossing

Eating properly:

Though carbohydrates are a necessity, taking too much of them can cause tooth decay. That’s why it is important that you limit your consumption of anything that contains starch and sugar. If you plan on eating sweets, eat them as desserts immediately after a meal. Your mouth produces more saliva around mealtimes, so it would be easier to wash the food away from your teeth. Stay away from sticky and chewy food. Caramel, syrup and the like stick to the teeth, making it difficult for the saliva to wash them away. Substitute fruits and vegetables as healthy snacks . Eating properly

Visiting your dentist:

Your teeth may last a lifetime, but only if you look after them the right way. Otherwise, you’ll be saying good bye to your pearly whites sooner than you might think. Have your dentist check and clean your teeth. Regular dental check-ups will keep any dental dilemmas at bay. Contact Dental Studio 101 if you have any other dental care questions.
