We were taught in schools that there was no replacement for our natural white teeth. So, the teachers make sure that we brush our teeth every morning during school assembly…sometimes punishing us for not following the health education class instructions. Later on, this habit of brushing teeth twice a day became a routine affair….of course with breaks due to sheer laziness :) This breaks over the years had their impact on my teeth and had to pull out one precious natural made.
Since then keeping my teeth intact becomes a priority and to do that one needs to follow certain rules.
- Visit a your local dentist every six months
- Brush twice a day
- Change your tooth brush every month. If that is not possible, at least every two months.
- For kids, use only the small size tooth brush
- If your gums started bleeding every time you brush, it’s time you pay your dentist an immediate visit. Bleeding of gums is a clear sign of scaling
- Remove decayed tooth if severe. If not, keeping longer will affect other healthy teeth.
- Last, rinse your mouth well. We think that brushing twice a day may be enough but it is not. In fact one must rinse the mouth preferably with your fingers after every meal.
