How to choose a toothpaste? 

To date, we can rejoice at the colossal range of toothpastes. Thanks to the modern achievements of science and the development of technology, it is possible to select a toothpaste for each member of the family, corresponding precisely to its needs. There are also "universal" pastes, which will be useful to almost everyone.

For example, if you have an increased sensitivity of the teeth, you should pay attention to the paste, which includes fluoride, calcium, strontium: these components strengthen the enamel and reduce its sensitivity. In case of problems with the gums (bleed and hurt), you can start using pasta based on herbs and antiseptic substances, of course, solely in addition to visiting the dentist, since this problem can be solved only with the help of a specialist. If among the members of your family there are children, then a paste with fluoride that will saturate the enamel and strengthen the tooth tissues will suit them. The amount of fluoride in children's pastes is much lower than their permissible norm in adult analogues. 

How to choose the right toothbrush?

Every day more and more people are convinced of the effectiveness of electric toothbrushes. After all, just such a brush can remove the plaque qualitatively not only from the surface of the teeth, but also from the cervical area where the greatest number of microbes accumulate, which leads to the development of inflammatory processes. A large selection of replaceable tips allows you to choose the right one. Electric brushes brand Oral-B can be used even by children from three years old. Good oral hygiene in childhood is as important as in adulthood, as the health of the teeth of an adult depends on it directly.

Electric brushes Oral-B - are the only toothbrushes with a small round head nozzle and return-rotational technology with pulsation. In terms of safety, quality and effectiveness, this brand is preferred by dentists around the world, and today it is the most studied means for oral hygiene. 

How often do I need to change the brushes and how do I know that it's time to change?

First of all, changing the toothbrush depends on the individual characteristics of the tooth cleaning technique. However, under the general rules it is recommended to change the brushes (or nozzles, if you have an electric brush) at least every 2-3 months. It is believed that it is during this period that the bristles lose their elasticity, bend and stop carefully cleaning the surface of the teeth. As for electric brushes, their bristles are equipped with special indicators, which, changing color, will prompt you about the need to change the nozzle. 

How to properly brush your teeth?

Brush your teeth twice a day: in the morning after breakfast and in the evening before going to bed. The procedure should last at least 2 minutes: this is the time it takes to clean the surface of the teeth from accumulated plaque. Do not forget about cleaning the tongue, because it also accumulates plaque, because of which the breath becomes stale. During brushing, do not apply too much pressure on the brush: you can damage the enamel and gums. It should be noted that the Oral-Belectric toothbrushes have special sensors that prevent excessive pressure, automatically reducing speed and stopping pulsation, thereby protecting your gums from damage.

Do you need dental floss? 

The use of floss (dental floss) is an integral part of brushing your teeth. Dental floss can qualitatively eliminate the remnants of food from the interdental spaces, thereby preventing the development of caries on the contact surfaces of the teeth. 

Do you need a mouthwash? 

Rinsers for the mouth are an indispensable addition to the full complex of teeth cleaning. They include strengthening and antiseptic components that favorably affect both hard tooth tissues and gums. However, it is important to remember that the use of a rinse aid in childhood is recommended only under the supervision of adults, since a child can swallow liquid, which is highly undesirable. 

What to look for during pregnancy?

Due to changes in the hormonal background, women in the "interesting position" should pay special attention to oral hygiene, and it is best to start using an electric brush with a return-rotational pulsation technology, because only it can provide you with the highest possible hygiene at maximum safety. Pregnant women often have increased plaque formation, and so-called "gingivitis of pregnant women", in which women complain of bleeding gums, swelling and pain. All this is, of course, a temporary phenomenon, but it brings certain inconveniences in this remarkable period. Therefore, I recommend that you pay attention in advance to oral care products so that nothing can overshadow the expectation of the child.
