Do I Really Have to Brush My Teeth Every Day?
As much as adults love to tell children that they need to brush their teeth every day, many adults themselves neglect this very important routine. Not only do many people brush their teeth just once a day, some individuals go days without brushing or flossing. In fact, only 40% of Americans floss, an important habit that must be developed and maintained in order to fight gum disease.
Plaque is an inflammatory marker that can contribute to the development of gum disease. Its presence in the mouth has also been correlated with an increased risk of heart disease. Plaque can often be decreased and prevented by appropriate brushing and flossing methods.
Here are just a few of the tools one should have and utilize every single day if attempting to keep gum disease, bad breath, and other health conditions at bay:
A mechanical, soft-bristled toothbrush is more adept at reaching areas of the teeth and gums than a manual toothbrush. It also provides the correct pressure on the teeth, helping to improve one's overall brushing technique.
Floss is an essential item that should be used at least once a day, if not two to three times a day. When one flosses, they are working on removing plaque, bacteria, and food particles from the teeth and gums. These particles can often contribute to the development of gum disease.
This is a tool that should be used after brushing and flossing the teeth, mainly as means of removing overlooked bacteria that brushing and flossing didn't get to. Mouthwash also keeps the breath smelling fresh, something that is imperative in social situations.
Generally speaking, individuals should brush their teeth every day after they eat or drink any item other than water. This often translates to about three times a day, with each session lasting at least two minutes. Always speak to a professional dentist to receive personal and individualized dental care recommendations.
