TOOTHBRUSH   

 

 

brushIn general , a brush  should  fit  the  following  guidelines  :

 

  • ØSIZE  : The  size  of  the  head  is  important  .  Generally  speaking  , a  small  head  is  preferable .  Small   heads  allow  you  to  better  reach  all  the  different  areas  in  the  mouth.
  • ØHANDLE
  • ØBRISTLES :  Do not  use  a  hard  brush (unless  your  dentist recommends otherwise ).  Hard   bristles  can  overtime  , can lead to gum recession and abrasion.  Soft or medium bristles  are  generally  better  and  are  sufficient  to  remove  plaque.
  • ØFLEXIBLE ANGLE : If you tend  to  scrub  to  hard  ,  a handle  angle  that  bends  may  help  reduce  harm  to the  teeth  and  gums.
  • ØCHILDREN :  obviously  should  be  given  smaller  brushes. Most  kids  versions  have  the  appropriate  age  on  the  label.  

 

TOOTHPASTE

 

 

pasteToothpaste is available in paste, gel, or powder form. Despite the many types of toothpaste, there are some ingredients common to most varieties. These include:

  • ØAbrasive agents
  • ØFlavoring - Artificial sweeteners, including saccharin, are often added to toothpaste to make them taste better. While many people equate the flavor of toothpaste with mint, toothpaste is available in a variety of flavors, including cinnamon, lemon-lime, and even bubblegum (for kids -- or kids at heart).
  • ØHumectants for moisture retention - Paste and gel formulations often contain substances like glycerol to prevent the toothpaste from drying outContinue reading below...
  • ØThickeners - Agents that add thickness to the toothpaste, including gums and gooey molecules found in some seaweeds, help achieve and maintain proper toothpaste texture.
  • ØDetergents - Those suds you see when you brush your teeth are from detergents like sodium lauryl sulfate.

Fluoride Toothpaste

The most important ingredient to look for when choosing toothpaste is fluoride.

Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral. Its use has been instrumental in the dramatic drop in tooth decay and cavity occurrence that has taken place over the past 50 years. Bacteria in your mouth feed on sugars and starches that remain on your teeth after eating. Fluoride helps protect your teeth from the acid that is released when this happens. It does this in two ways. First, fluoride makes your tooth enamel stronger and less likely to suffer acid damage. Second, it can reverse the early stages of acid damage by remineralizing areas that have started to decay.

Using fluoride toothpaste is an important way to ensure that your teeth are reaping the benefits of this dental-friendly mineral. Don't think you can skip fluoride if you live in an area where the water is fluoridated. Studies have shown that using fluoride toothpaste helps increase the concentration of fluoride in the teeth, even in areas with water supplies containing high levels of the mineral
