1. Choosing the right toothbrush.
Brand toothbrush is not nearly as important as brush type, size and shape of the head, and the frequency with which you change your toothbrush. We recommend a soft bristled toothbrush with a small head. Soft brushes are very important for healthy gums.
A small head allows you to enter every tooth deeper and is less likely to cause damage to the gums. Daily frequency of brushing and periodic replacement brush are much more important issues than the brand you choose. We recommend that you replace your toothbrush at least once a month. Our recommendation is to brush your teeth at least twice a day.
2. How to brush your teeth.
Brush thoroughly twice a day and inter-dental cleaning teeth daily with silk or other inter-dental cleaning help, normally at normal levels of plaque removal. Keep in mind these tips when brushing your teeth. Hold the toothbrush at a 45 degree angle to the teeth and use a movement back and forth along the entire tooth. Do not forget to clean the inside surfaces of the teeth where plaque deposits are large quantities and clean the back teeth and tongue.
3. What is plaque?
Or stone plaque from teeth is an organo-mineral deposit yellow-brown teeth met both permanent and in the milk. Plaque forms especially the inner surface of the lower teeth on the outer surface of the upper molars, and on surfaces bridges and dentures, orthodontic appliances, as well as areas where teeth can not be cleaned easily. Submission promotes periodontal disease plaque, cavities, bad breath to, and eventually loss of teeth. To maintain a proper hygiene and prevent future dental problems should visit your dentist for regular dental cleaning – every 6 months or every 3 months if you smoke.
4. Washing Improper installation can cause problems!
Even if your teeth are protected by a thick layer of enamel may be damaged due to improper brushing. Abrasion can occur due brushing the tooth crown and the soft cement covering tooth roots, which can be exposed by the withdrawal gums. These exposed surfaces can easily succumb to decay. When brushing, make sure you use gentle, short and on the entire surface of the tooth.
5. Intra-dental cleaning surfaces.
Floss and other inter-dental cleaners removes plaque from between teeth and the gums, areas where the toothbrush can not reach.
If you do not have this habit, it is never too late to start. When using Floss consider the following tips: Gently Floss between the teeth and the gums, do not shoot it down. Form a “C” around the edges Floss teeth move slightly back and forth along the tooth, moving it below the gum base to the upper end of the tooth.
Establish a method of cleaning the teeth to a current user and do not forget to clean the back of the last tooth. If using inter-dental cleaners, ask your dentist how to use them properly so as to avoid damaging the gums.
6. Choosing the right toothpaste.
As long as your toothpaste contains fluoride toothpaste, the brand has a great importance, whether in the form of paste, gel or powder, or as it has some flavor. All toothpastes fluorine acts effectively against plaque and clean and polish tooth enamel.
If your tooth is sensitive to hot or cold, consider the possibility of using a toothpaste specifically designed for sensitive teeth, toothpaste containing sodium bicarbonate and / or hydrogen peroxide (both cleaning agents), it provides cavity mouth a pleasant feeling clean, fresh, which can be a motivation to wash more often, but the true active ingredient that protects your teeth is fluoride.
Toothpastes We offer advanced whitening formulas in order to remove stains and make teeth whiter and brighter, although it can hardly equal the effectiveness of a professional whitening treatment administered or prescribed by a astomatolog.
7. Rinsing with mouthwash.

Studies show that plaque will develop clean teeth again in 3-4 hours after brushing. Also, apply a regular hygienic cleaning dental office – at least once every six months (or more frequently if so advised).
9. Why do I need professional cleaning?
Dental plaque is the primary factor of dental caries and marginal periodontitis. Plaque is represented by microorganisms that adhere to tooth surfaces and can be removed by simply running water or rinsing. Joining microorganisms begins just an hour after brushing, while maximum accumulation occurs within 30 days. Plaque can be seen as a repository of white-yellowish, especially in the teeth. Clinical examination is done in the mirror, looking at the colored areas where brushing was insufficient or ineffective. Control is achieved by the patient every 2-3 days initially, then once a week until the correct tooth brushing.
10. Quit smoking!
No longer a secret to anyone that smoking seriously affects the appearance of your teeth. Nicotine stained enamel and teeth yellowed appearance persist long. In addition, while smoking leads to plaque formation and gum disease occurrence.
