How often should I change my toothbrush?
Most dentists agree you should change your toothbrush every three months. Studies show that after three months of normal wear and tear, toothbrushes are much less effective at removing plaque from teeth and gums compared to new ones. The bristles break down and loose their effectiveness in getting to all those tricky corners around your teeth. It is also important to change toothbrushes after you’ve had a cold, the flu, a mouth infection or a sore throat. That’s because germs can hide in toothbrush bristles and lead to reinfection. Even if you haven’t been sick, fungus and bacteria can develop in the bristles of your toothbrush -another reason to change your toothbrush regularly.
How often should I brush my teeth?
Brush twice a day for at least 3 to 4 minutes. Place the brush at an angel of 45 degrees. Make sure you brush the teeth from all angels so that you experience healthy and fresh breath. Good toothpaste will enable you to remove plaque, resist cavities, and remove stains caused by tea and coffee and fresh breath. When plaque forms on the surface of the teeth, it combines with the sugar or any food you ate and then this potent decaying combination is the sole cause of tooth decay. Good indications to visit your dentist will be bleeding gums, swollen gum area or toothache. If the plague has developed well enough, it will deform the shape of your tooth and then target the gum. The gums weaken and are then incapable of holding the teeth in place. Brush twice a day for 3 minutes, eat a healthy diet, and visit your dentist as and when you experience dental problems.
What is the difference between sliver and white filling?
The main difference between silver and white dental fillings is the material that they consist of. Silver (amalgam) fillings, are made up of 50% mercury and 50% of other various metals. White (composite) fillings are made up of acrylic and various glass particles. Other differences in silver and white fillings are cost, strength and the way they look.
When will my baby get teeth?
It is completely normal for your baby to get her first tooth at 18 months. And there are rare cases when an infant is born with teeth. For most children, however, that first tooth will appear around six months.
How often should I get dental checkup?
You should get a dental check-up every six months. People at a greater risk for oral diseases should have dental check-ups more than twice a year. Going to your regular check-up will help to keep your gums and teeth healthy as well as detect any early problems such as cavities. The best way to prevent bad breath and periodontal (gum) disease, which has been linked to heart disease, is to visit your dentist on a regular basis.
