Most people in India are still unaware of the correct brushing techniques and ways to maintain healthy teeth henceforth here we present a blog about how to maintain good oral hygiene and some home remedy that shall help most people in their day-to-day life.
Rule no 1: The first thing that comes to our mind as soon as we get up is to brush our teeth hence let’s talk about the ideal technique to brush your teeth…start with the toothpaste…toothpaste shall be fluoridated without any abrasive agent like silica which shall abrade your teeth of any brand of your choice ….avoid using toothpowder (manjan). Take a pea-size toothpaste, not more than that and press inside the bristle rate of just applying over the bristle it shall be pressed inside the bristle and gently brush your teeth for 3.5 min (we know Google recommends 2 min ) but ideally 3.5 min brushing is recommended. Don’t brush vigorously as most people believe vigorous brushing techniques can whiten their teeth that’s hypothetical. After brushing rinse your mouth properly. Don’t use mouthwash daily it is supposed to be used only after consulting a dentist as prolonged mouthwash use has side-effects.
Rule no 2: Change your brush every 3 months without fail it doesn’t cost much so do change it every three months to make sure you have good teeth in the future.
Rule no 3: After every meal kindly rinse your mouth to make sure there is no food lodgment which shall attract bacteria and then the cavities.
