Healthy teeth are important for general well-being, as those who can smile with bright teeth feel better than those with dirty teeth. Even bad breath as a threshold of severe inhibition in the social network of relationships with good oral care has no chance. Anyone who brushes their teeth regularly and correctly also avoids the many dental problems caused by poor oral hygiene and ensures that their natural teeth can bite into old age. Good dental hygiene starts with choosing the right toothbrush. A medium to soft hardness is recommended to obtain sufficient elasticity, as well as an ergonomic handle. This ensures that even more difficult places on the tooth are achieved with good comfort of maintenance. Gentle hairs are a good option for not attacking teeth and gums unnecessarily. A tufted (multi-tufted) toothbrush also has advantages because of its broad spectrum of action against soil supports of different consistency. Toothbrushes made with a plastic bristle field with rounded bristles are also effective for a smooth assembly of the toothbrush and tooth. Electric toothbrushes are the most effective because of their fast rotation, but not mandatory, because with the right technique, everyone can wash their teeth manually. Whether you choose a round-headed brush or a long-handled brush is a question of your own style. If you want to make each tooth individually, you should choose a round-headed brush. For those who prefer to cover wider areas with their toothbrush, a long-handled brush is the right choice.

It is well known that toothpaste is part of the toothbrush and the question is therefore which toothpaste it should be. In particular, fluoride-containing toothpastes provide additional protection against bacteria and enamel inflammation, while particularly sensitive teeth are aided by potassium chloride, potassium nitrate, hydroxyapatite and chlorine chloride. strontium. Amine fluoride is again an anti-inflammatory agent, which should be used in the inflammation of teeth similar to chlorhexidine.

Teeth should be cleaned at least twice a day for three minutes. More does not automatically mean better, because those who brush too hard teeth also put their teeth in danger by attacking their gums and enamel and contributing to the unloved dull effect of their teeth. Even the old rule of brushing your teeth after every meal is no longer valid. The reason is that acidic foods soften the enamel, which can be irritating when brushing your teeth. We recommend a wait time of 30 to 60 minutes after eating. However, the rule is not to go to bed without having to wash your teeth without restriction. During the night, the salivary flow as a natural protective function is reduced, which is why bacteria have the easiest time to settle in the oral cavity during this period. Dental care should include the inside, outside and the area of ​​purchase of the teeth. The bass technique has proven extremely effective. Here, the teeth are worked at a 45 degree angle (with electric toothbrushes, the bristles can also be parallel to the teeth) with slight pressure and circular motions. This allows a complete and smooth dental care. In addition, the bristles should rest halfway on the gums and teeth, which has become popular in the vernacular as the rule of red to white, because the toothbrush should tend to be conducted from the gum to the collar. In order to access the interdental spaces, dental floss and toothpicks are available to them. In doing so, the interdental spaces must be treated before the cleaning process so that the toothpaste can better penetrate the cleaned spaces during cleaning.

An interdental brush is especially recommended in the presence of dental implants to reach the difficult areas of the tooth. When it comes to proper food, keep in mind that fructose irritates teeth as well as white sugar.
