Over the years, teeth tend to darken or even stain, which is why you can opt for teeth whitening, which can allow your teeth to have that bright white shade that causes so much sensation. It is important to mention that these procedures are best applied with professional people and above all with the right ingredients.
There are many home methods that “recommend” you but the truth is that behind all these applications that can present “positive results”, we do not know the damage they can cause in our teeth as a side effect. Although you must remember that all teeth must be at least 10% yellow, to be natural.
Water is not only important for the proper functioning of the body, but also for our mouth. At least one liter of water should be consumed. The mouth has its own defense mechanism through saliva. Keeping the mouth well hydrated helps prevent various oral infections.
There are several foods that help remove stains from teeth, did you know about this? Apples, for example, are one of them. Celery and carrots are also great allies for our teeth, thanks to their great sources of vitamins that help nourish them. So do not hesitate to include these foods in your diet.
Dark chocolate, like beverages, can darken teeth and if you want to maintain a flawless smile you should not overdo it. You should also consider the cavities it can cause.
This does not mean that you can not indulge yourself from time to time, you should just brush your teeth well after consuming all the sweets you like, or plan the days in which you can indulge yourself so as not to overload your teeth. In fact, this will also help you maintain a stable weight and be healthier overall.
Smoking is a lethal enemy to oral health. In addition to leaving a terrible smell, smoke and nicotine can cause serious damage to the teeth; smoking causes a decrease in the permeability of the mucous membranes. This is caused by a decrease in oxygenation.
This results in premature aging and wear of the tissues surrounding our teeth. And not only in them, but also in your main organs such as the lungs. So if you have these types of habits, it would be ideal to stop them for the well-being of your teeth and your overall health.
We cannot leave aside the ally of a good smile, the lips. That is why it is important to keep them well hydrated, to prevent them from breaking or looking dry. For this you can use moisturizing products that match your skin type. There are masks and even creams, you just have to go to your trusted dermatologist and specify your needs so they can send you a treatment.
Brushing your teeth three times a day has always been mentioned, but why not just once? Brushing your teeth prevents the formation of bacterial plaque, which in addition to wearing down your teeth causes other diseases and bad breath.
Three times a day is enough to keep teeth clean. As a general rule, one brushing should be in the morning when we wake up, another one at noon, after eating and the last one before going to sleep. We must also remember that we should not overdo it, because this could also damage the enamel of the teeth.
So it is good to follow the indications of professionals, which we can give you in our dental clinic in Tirana, Albania. Where we give talks to the little ones too, so that from an early age they become interested in their oral health and make parenting easier.
Toothbrushes through use tend to wear out and lose some of their effectiveness, in addition to accumulating bacteria. Some people choose to sterilize their toothbrushes with a little hot water; this is valid but does not guarantee great effectiveness.
That is why it is recommended to change the toothbrush every 3 months and above all, avoid sharing the toothbrush with another person, remember that the bacteria that person may have can harm you. We also advise you to choose a toothbrush suitable for your type of sensitivity, neither too hard nor too soft in the bristles.
Dental floss allows you to reach interdental areas where the toothbrush does not have access, this to ensure that all areas are well cleaned. Use it after each brushing and especially after eating.
Drinks such as soda, lemon or orange juice can decalcify the tooth enamel, which can result in premature wear. On the other hand, the consumption of beverages such as coffee, red wine or tea and foods such as tomatoes or beets, can stain the teeth.
This is why you should regulate the consumption of all these in order to keep your teeth perfect or make sure you brush your teeth well after consuming them, clearly avoiding excesses.
Abrupt temperature changes can increase sensitivity causing inflammation in the dental pulp. Avoiding this will prevent cracks in the tooth enamel.
Many times the hygiene of our teeth is not completed correctly due to crowding. In these cases, you should visit a dentist who will perform an analysis of the deformities to proceed to schedule a treatment to correct and place the teeth in the corresponding position. They will probably also suggest an extensive dental cleaning to make sure that the tartar is removed correctly.
