Brush Your Teeth A Day To Keep The Dentist Away_ Powered By Docstoc
					No one on earth wishes to have a bad breath or rotten smelly teeth. It sets a really bad
impression on the people around you. To some, the most annoying thing is to have a
sleeping partner with sleep apnea. However, those who do not give importance to
their oral hygiene are disliked by many. This is reason why dentists throughout the
world emphasize on regular brushing. If you leave your teeth without proper cleaning,
they will be susceptible to various diseases. This is even worse than the alignment
problem of your teeth. In which case, you can resort to invisalign. The big question
here is what is the importance of teeth cleaning?

You may have come across people who always have some excuses for not brushing
their teeth. What they fail to realize is that this is an important part of dental health.
Just by regular brushing, you can prevent the painful cavities and other gum diseases.
The root of the cause here is plaque.

Many of you might have noticed a sticky layer that forms on your teeth. This layer
known as plaque is formed by accumulation of food debris and bacteria. Brushing
your teeth helps in breaking this layer to give clean teeth, and gums along with fresh
breath. Therefore, brushing is vital to oral hygiene.

But even after regular brushing, people often complain of bad breath or bleeding
gums. A plain reason for this is an improper brushing technique. You may be an oral
hygiene geek and brush your teeth three to four times a day, but it is no use unless you
are geared for the right technique. Although, the toothpaste you apply is also
important, it is mainly the method of brushing that makes effective cleaning possible
for you.

In the right brushing technique, you have to hold the brush at a 45 degree angle and
force it between your teeth. Rub it properly between and at the junction of gums with
the teeth. Brush your teeth in brief strokes in a back and forth or vibratory action.
Make sure you brush every part of your teeth with anterior and posterior strokes. And
try your best to apply this technique in your routine use.

Another method more effective in young children is known as Fone's technique. In
this technique, the brush has to be placed at an angle of 90 degree on the outer surface.
It is then moved in rotary action over teeth and gums. Apply this action while keeping
the teeth clenched. This technique is quite easy for kids, but can also be applied by
adults.

Once you know how to brush your teeth, the things you will need are; a toothbrush,
toothpaste, mouthwash and floss. These items are enough to give you plaque free
teeth and complete oral hygiene. In case, you do not brush your teeth, they get
infected, gums start to recede, and your teeth can decay. Ultimately you will be
spending some big amount for replacement dentures. It is a safe option indeed, but
why push it that far when you delay teeth damage with proper brushing.
