1. Do you need to visit a dentist even if you are not concerned about toothache?
Very often in the minds of most people the thought appears: "As long as the tooth does not hurt me so much that It keeps me awake at night, I won't see a dentist " and it is extremely sad. After all, I think it's not hard to guess what is waiting for such a tooth after 3-5 years of waiting and not treating early.
Of course, you should visit dentist even when nothing is hurting. At least once in every 6 months. As well as depending on the individual's inclination to form a caries or plaque. Also,you need to come to perform professional hygiene regularly. With the help of a variety of ultrasonic instruments, we are able to clear what is not cleaned by brushing with a conventional brush on daily basis. For example, cleaning the posterior teeth, to which some people, due to their anatomical features,simply can not reach, and their brush does not completely cover the entire crown,in that case only brush the tooth * from the above *.
2. How often do you need to visit a dentist?
Twice a year! And even better - be dentist best friend and come to visit for a cup of coffee as often as possible.
3. It is generally accepted to brush your teeth 2 times a day: morning and evening. Your opinion on this?
I totally agree with this. However, it should be remembered that teeth should be cleaned after eating - breakfast and dinner. After all, sugar, if not taken away in time, harmfully affect our enamel, which entails the emergence of caries.
4. Is it advisable to use rinse aid? How to choose them?
This question causes a lot of discussions among dentists. They have their pluses and minuses like most of the things in our lives. However, I do not recommend them very much to admire, because the effect they bring is still quite doubtful. It is best to use them for people who have poor hygiene through various orthodontic designs: bracket systems or plates.
5. Chewing gum: How do they affect the health of teeth?
If the masticator is correctly used, it even has a very good effect on the health of the teeth. It stimulates salivation and is able to wash the remnants of food from "problem" zones. However, it should be chewed alternately on the right and on the left side and not longer than 10-15 minutes.
6. Are there certain foods, the vitamin content of which will contribute to the health and beauty of the teeth?
There are products that have a positive effect on our body as a whole. Not only our teeth. For dental health it is recommended to consume products with high content of calcium and phosphorus. These are dairy products: milk, cheese, kefir, sour cream, yogurt. Very useful are sesame, hazelnuts, almonds, walnuts, peanuts, dried apricots, raisins, sunflower seeds and pumpkin. We can not forget about solid vegetables and fruits, eggs, fish, and especially the red one.
