“Teeth should be brushed for 3-4 minutes at least 2 times a day in order to protect them from gum diseases and tooth decay.”
The brush should never be wet before starting to brush your teeth. Brush head small and medium hard brushes should be preferred. The amount of paste used should not exceed the size of the hazelnut.
Chewing surfaces should be brushed with back and forth movements. It consists of oral cleaning, brushing and interdental cleaning. Brushing alone will never provide a complete cleaning. Dental floss or an interface brush should be used to clean the interfaces of the teeth after brushing. Dental floss should be preferred in cases where the teeth are dense, while the interface brush is generally used in the areas with interdental spaces. Your physician will determine the appropriate hygiene care tools according to the needs of your mouth. These products are suitable to use once a day.
Mouthwashes can also be used to support oral care. The use of mouthwashes never replaces brushing and / or interdental cleaning. It only has a supportive effect.
Also, a routine dentist visit is very important.
- Teeth should be checked every six months, if any, problems should be resolved at an early stage.
- Panoramic radiography should be taken once a year for detailed control.
- If there are previously missing teeth, the deficiencies should be completed without allowing the mouth balance to deteriorate.
- If there are wisdom teeth that compress the front teeth, they should be removed without damaging the other teeth.
- If there are crowded teeth, the risk of gum disease and tooth decay increases. Today, it is possible to reduce these risks with adult orthodontics.
