Plaque, calculus, inflammation

Causes:

  • Dental plaque accumulates in 7 hrs;
  • Dental calculus – in 3 days;
  • Gum inflammation develops over 7 days;
  • Inflammation of surrounding tissues and bones develops in 1 month.

An unhealthy mouth is an open gate for infections. It unfavourably affects the whole body: heart, lungs, kidneys, joints, also the developing foetus during pregnancy.

Tooth sensitivity

Many know the unpleasant feeling of sharp pain in the teeth upon inhaling cold air or eating cold or hot food.

Causes:

  • Improper tooth brushing;
  • Abrasive toothpaste;
  • Toothbrush damaging gums and tooth surface;
  • Exposed cervical parts of the tooth.

Dental calculus

Dental plaque eventually mineralizes and becomes dental calculus. Its bacteria and toxins adversely affect gums and periodontal tissues.

Causes:

  • Improper oral hygiene;
  • Malocclusion;
  • Prolonged gum inflammation.

Bleeding gums

  • Insufficient oral hygiene;
  • Toothbrush damaging gums;
  • Improper tooth brushing;
  • Chronic diseases;
  • Medications;
  • Pregnancy.

Inflammation of gums

Inflammation of gums (gingivitis) is one of the most common gum disease. Gums are swollen, red, bleed easily. It is caused by bacteria in the gingival pocket.

Causes:

  • Dental plaque and calculus;
  • Chronic diseases;
  • Pregnancy;
  • Chemicals.

Personal oral hygiene recommendations

Brush teeth using a soft toothbrush twice daily. Replace the toothbrush every three-four months or when the bristles are worn. “Tired” bristles do not remove plaque efficiently.

Use toothpaste containing fluoride (1000-1500 ppm). Fluoride prevents tooth decay. Change toothpaste regularly. After brushing spit out the remaining toothpaste, but do not rinse so that the effect of fluoride in the toothpaste is prolonged.

Brush for at least two minutes.

At least once per day use dental floss. A toothbrush does not remove interdental plaque. Dental floss helps remove soft plaque and food residue from interdental spaces and gingival sulcus.

Eat healthy, avoid snacking.

Twice a year visit a dental specialist for prophylaxis and professional oral hygiene.

How to brush teeth properly?

  • Hold the toothbrush at a 45° angle to the gums;
  • Gently sweep the toothbrush towards the edge of the tooth;
  • Gently move the toothbrush back and forth in a vibrating motion;
  • Clean outer and inner surfaces. Perform at least 10 sweeping and vibrating motions on every tooth;
  • Cleaning the inner surfaces turn the brush sideways and use the upper third of the brush;
  • Clean occlusal surfaces with vibrating motions back and forth;
  • Clean the tongue and inner cheek surfaces. Doing this will reduce the bacteria and prevent bad breath.

How to floss properly?

  • Take approx. 40 cm (15 in) of dental floss. Wrap most of it around index or middle fingers, the rest – around the same finger of the opposite hand; there you’ll wrap the used portion of the floss. Grip both ends tightly;
  • Carefully insert the floss through the teeth, avoiding injury to the gums;
  • After reaching the gum margin, slide the floss up and down around one tooth. Then the other tooth;
  • Repeat between each teeth;
  • Do not the far end of the last tooth.
