Home Treatment For Dental Care

Brush Daily

  • Set the brush at a 45 deg angle. Press slowly, and gently move the brush back then forth using circular motions. Don't scrub. Vigorous moves can make your gums pull from your teeth and scratch the enamel.
  • Brush all surfaces, tongue and cheek. Pay particular focus on all surfaces and front teeth.
  • Brush surfaces vigorously with back then forth strokes.
  • Brush the tongue. Many place some paste or rinse when they do this. Brushing the tongue helps remove plaque. Certain toothbrushes have a special brush to use on your tongue.
  • Use disclosing tablets sometimes to check whether any plaque is on the teeth. Disclosing tablets are chewing and may color any plaque on the teeth once you brush. You can buy them at the drugstore.

Floss Daily

Floss 1 or more times a day. The floss is unimportant. Select flavor and the kind you want best. Use the following procedures:

  • The finger method: Cut a bit off in. (45 cm) in. (50 cm) long. Roll another end round your middle finger and one end, until hands are about 2 in. (5 cm) in. (8 cm) apart.
  • The circle process: Use a bit of floss in. (30 cm) long. Tie ends together. If loop is too big, wrap it round the fingers to allow it to be smaller.
  • A plastic tool which makes flossing easier: Kid-size tools are accessible for parents.

You might need to attempt electrical cleaning devices (interdental brushes or interdental cleaning devices) that were made to clean among your teeth. They are sometimes as powerful as using floss.

If your gums are bleeding when flossing, the bleeding will stop as your gums start to be healthier and tighter with your teeth.

Eat a Healthy Diet

  • Eat a balanced diet which includes fruits, and grains, veggies and is low in fat and sodium. Great nutrition is essential to prevent tooth decay and keeping healthy gums.
  • Cheeses, peanuts, milk, and no-sugar chewing gum (particularly gum which has xylitol) are not bad for the teeth. They help protect against plaque and clear your mouth. These make excellent after-meal snacks.
  • Avoid meals that have lots of sugar, particularly sweet foods like raisins and taffy. The more destroying the sugar will do, the longer sugar remains in touch with your teeth.
  • Because food left on teeth don't snack before bedtime is more prone to cause cavities at nighttime. Saliva production falls while you sleep, the mouth doesn't clean nicely during sleeping hours.

Cease Using Tobacco

It's also vital that you quit using tobacco . Using any tobacco makes it more likely you'll have gum disease or mouth cancer. Using tobacco may also delay healing when you have ayour teeth pulled or other operation on the teeth and mouth. Tobacco use as well causes ugly breath and stains the teeth with tongue.
