Some people actually pay large sums of money to have perfect teeth, and here we are not referring just to public figures who are keen on showing a perfect smile, but to the common person who’d like to undergo an A to Z oral treatment to improve the overall teeth health condition. At the Melbourne Orthodontic Group, we say perfect teeth we should also include gum and tongue condition here too. First of all, it would be totally false to judge perfect teeth by the mere look: a bright smile doesn’t necessarily imply a 100% great tooth health. There should be no cavities, no caries in progress, the gums need to show no signs of bleeding or gingivitis and the tongue has to be completely unclogged.
If your aim is getting some perfect teeth condition, then it’s time to start by checking your oral routine. Thus, keep in mind that teeth brushing twice a day is an absolute must. The toothpaste you choose needs to be fluoride based and changed occasionally so that the bacteria in the mouth should not grow resistant to it. Then, the toothbrush needs to clean well not hurt your gums, therefore, soft brushes receive the best recommendation of all. If you are too lazy to spend some time for each tooth in particular, you can always choose an electric toothbrush that will do the work for you.
There are certain tight areas below the gum line that you cannot reach by using a toothbrush, and this is when flossing has a word to say in getting a perfect teeth condition. The bacterial plaque can be removed by gently pulling the floss from the level of the gum line towards the end of the tooth. At the Orthodontist Melbourne Group we recommend only fresh floss should be used as you progressively clean each tooth; whenever you have difficulties in getting the floss between the teeth, it is advisable to try a waxed type so that manipulation is greatly eased.
You can also make sure that you keep perfect teeth by using a mouthwash or a special rinse that is meant to destroy the bacterial plaque which attacks the enamel and is responsible for tooth decay. There are plenty of devices that are especially created to assist people in getting the perfect oral health possible and here we should mention dental picks or irrigating items that send flows of water in the mouth washing food particles away. Ask your doctor about where you can purchase advanced oral care products and for what prices.
