Here are some tips for brushing your teeth in the best way. Do you know how to brush your teeth? If the answer is obvious to you, you will be surprised to find that often some small mistakes are made that do not allow you to clean them as they should. Sometimes this happens out of ignorance, others due to the widespread tendency to underestimate the problems deriving from poor oral hygiene. On the other hand, according to what emerged from a Censis research carried out in collaboration with the Andi (National Association of Italian Dentists) in 2018, as many as 17 million Italians do not usually go to the dentist even once a year. However, this is also caused by the high cost of some dental treatments.

According to dott.Richard Brands, a well-known London dentist, it is good to brush your teeth twice a day, morning and evening, for two or three minutes. And she recommends rinsing your mouth with an alcohol-free mouthwash to kill any bacteria your toothbrush may not have reached. Furthermore, he argues that it is good not to underestimate the washing of the tongue, which must in turn be brushed carefully with a scraper or with the same toothbrush.
Which water to use? Dr. Marques does not recommend rinsing your mouth using hot or cold water. Better to use warm water, so as not to burn yourself and not to damage the bristles of the toothbrush. Especially if you have sensitive teeth, therefore, you must particularly avoid using cold water, so as to avoid unpleasant pain.
Furthermore, it is important to know that the most suitable toothbrush for oral cleaning, and the one generally recommended by experts, is not the traditional one, but the electric one. Indeed, this is able to clean the teeth more thoroughly and deeper. Adequate use of dental floss, often underestimated, can in turn prove to be useful in combating plaque.
The right nutrition
“You are what you eat”, it is said very often. Proper nutrition is also important for healthy teeth. Eating foods rich in antioxidants and vitamin K is important for a healthy mouth.
Dr Nigel Carter instead warns against excessive intake of sugary drinks. In fact, they contain ingredients such as phosphoric, tartaric and citric acids, which if taken in large doses can cause dental problems.
