In general, oral and dental hygiene devices are divided into 4 groups:
The most important tool in oral and dental hygiene is the toothbrush, with the growth of milk teeth at around 6 months of age, teeth brushing should begin. Other brushes vary according to age, from infancy to adulthood and from small to large. For adults, there are medium and large sizes, depending on the size of the mouth. In terms of brushes, we have 2 types of soft and medium toothbrushes
Floss should be used to clean between the teeth. A toothbrush alone is not enough to clean the interdental areas. Most tooth decay occurs in the contact area and between the teeth, which is the reason why most people do not use dental floss. It is usually recommended to floss three times a day after main meals, but at least every night before brushing. Is to hit Thin and fluoridated floss is better than thick and stringy types
The effectiveness of mouthwashes in oral hygiene is increasing every day. The main types of mouthwashes are:
Due to the wide variety in properties and brands of mouthwashes, it is better to prescribe them by a dentist in Toronto.
The role of toothpaste in oral hygiene is less than the way of brushing and its frequency. That is, if you brush your teeth properly and at least once a day (preferably at night before going to bed) and floss your teeth, it doesn’t matter what type of toothpaste you use. However, in standard and reliable toothpaste, some ingredients have a greater impact on the health of the mouth and teeth in a short time of brushing (1-2 minutes). Whitening and anti-tartar toothpaste should be used for a limited time and with the advice of a dentist because it causes wear and tooth sensitivity. For children, it is better to brush without toothpaste until they cannot hold the foam in their mouth while brushing and then take it out, and there is a possibility of eating the toothpaste.
