A healthy lifestyle begins with maintaining oral health. A tooth is an organ. Dental health is not only related to many aspects of general health but also a symbol of modern human health and civilization. If you have a problem with your body, you may go to the hospital for treatment in time, or take some medicine to treat you. However, if there is a problem with your mouth, how many people will pay more attention to it? I believe that many people have dental caries, periodontitis, calculus and other phenomena in the mouth. Once a tooth has a problem, it will have a great impact on people’s normal life. If you can pay more attention to your oral health in your life, you can effectively avoid these diseases.
First of all, oral health is an important part of overall health. Oral health directly or indirectly affects general health. Oral diseases such as rickets, periodontal diseases, etc. can damage the hard tissues of the teeth and the supporting tissues around the teeth. In addition to affecting the functions and aesthetics of chewing, speaking, etc., it also leads to difficulties in social interaction and psychological barriers. Oral inflammation, especially periodontitis, can cause or aggravate certain systemic diseases such as coronary heart disease, diabetes, etc., endangering general health and affecting the quality of life. I will tell you how to keep your mouth healthy.
Brush your teeth in the morning and evening, and rinse your mouth after meals.
Develop a good habit of brushing your teeth every day. You must brush your teeth before getting up in the morning and sleeping at night. This will eliminate food debris, soft white dirt, and plaque on the mouth and teeth. Keep your mouth clean and healthy and reduce the incidence of dental diseases. Brushing your teeth can remove plaque, soft dirt and food debris maintains oral hygiene, and maintains healthy teeth and periodontal tissues. After brushing your teeth, the plaque will soon reattach on the cleaned teeth and continue to form. Especially after falling asleep at night, saliva secretion is reduced, oral self-cleaning is poor, and bacteria are more likely to grow. Therefore, brush your teeth at least twice a day, and it is more important to brush your teeth before going to bed at night. Rinse mouth after meals to remove food residue from the mouth and keep the mouth clean.
Developing good eating habits is very important for maintaining oral health.
Eating habits are closely related to dental health. We all know that eating too much sugar can have a very bad effect on the teeth, and may even cause dental caries, which makes us miserable. The sugar mentioned here mainly refers to sucrose, which is the most common sugar in life and the raw material of most sugar foods. Sugar and carbohydrates in the mouth are one of the main causes of rickets. The main cause of wisdom teeth is sucrose, followed by glucose, starch and the like. If a large amount of carbonated beverage is quoted, bone calcium will be lost, which may cause osteoporosis. A large number of carbonated drinks will also affect dental health. Carbonated drinks can also cause the mouth to become acidic and have an adverse effect on the mouth. In addition, the polyphosphate contained in the carbonated beverage will affect the body’s calcium and phosphorus absorption, and the chance of suffering from dental caries will increase by two times. People who drink carbonated drinks for a long time will even have a series of demineralized spots on the surface of the teeth. This damage is difficult to be repaired by the body. Therefore, you should try to reduce the number of times you eat sugar every day, drink less carbonated drinks, and stop eating after brushing your teeth at night. Finally, we should eat more fruits and vegetables. Fruits and vegetables contain very rich nutrients such as nutrients and calcium and phosphorus, as well as very abundant vitamins. This substance is very good for the body. Fruits and vegetables can also help promote the formation and calcification of tooth tissue, help teeth to increase hardness, and improve resistance to acidic substances.
Promote the use of fluoride toothpaste to prevent dental carr
Toothpaste is a kind of agent that assists in brushing teeth. It can enhance the friction of brushing teeth, help remove food debris, soft dirt and plaque, help to eliminate or reduce the bad smell of the mouth and make the breath fresh. Fluoride-containing toothpaste has a clear anti-caries effect, and its wide application is one of the main reasons for the significant decline in the incidence of rickets. Brushing your teeth with fluoride toothpaste is a safe and effective anti-mite measure, especially for children and the elderly who are prone to sputum.
Oral health check should be performed regularly
Oral diseases such as dental carries and periodontal diseases often occur slowly. There are no obvious symptoms in the early stage, and it is generally not easy to detect. When the symptoms such as pain appear, it may have reached the middle and late stages of the disease, and the treatment is more complicated. Therefore, we should conduct oral health check regularly, at least once a year, not only to detect and treat oral diseases in a timely manner, but doctors can also take measures to prevent and control the development of oral diseases according to the situation.
There are oral problems, and getting medical care early is the key
Plaque, food residue, and soft scale deposit on the tooth surface combine with minerals in saliva, and gradually form calculus. The surface of the calculus is rough, which causes bad stimulation to the gums and is beneficial to the adhesion of new plaque, which is a contributing factor to periodontal disease. Self-oral health care methods can only remove plaque and can’t remove tartar. Therefore, it is necessary to go to the hospital regularly to clean the teeth by a dentist, preferably once a year. Tooth cleaning is performed by a dentist using a dental prosthetic device to remove tartar and plaque deposited on the sacral and inferior temporal margins around the gingival margin. There may be slight bleeding during the cleaning process, and short-term tooth sensitivity may occur after cleaning the teeth. But generally it won’t hurt the gums, and it won’t cause sparse teeth and loose teeth. Regular teeth cleaning keeps your teeth strong and periodontal.
