In total, a person has 32 teeth, each of which can "get sick" if not properly cared for. Therefore, it is very important to learn and teach children how to properly care for their teeth and oral cavity.
The most important thing in dental care is the choice of toothpaste. Teeth have three main enemies: sugar, plaque, and lack of fluoride. Moreover, the latter is the main reason for the formation of caries. When choosing a toothpaste, remember that a good product should be free of plaque, sugar-free and fluoride.
The choice of the brush is also important. The bristles of the toothbrush should be of medium hardness. It is recommended to change the brushes every 3 months. Try to brush not only your teeth, but also your tongue. Since a huge number of microbes accumulate on the tongue. Before going to bed, be sure to remove food debris with dental floss or floss. Dental floss is excellent at fighting plaque, and also prevents the growth of bacteria.
An excellent assistant in the fight against tooth decay and stone formation is a mouthwash. Try to use it after every meal. This will remove the remaining food debris and the teeth will be covered with an antibacterial film. At home, an infusion of St. John's wort, sage, nettle or oak bark can be used as a rinse.
Eat right. Teeth, both milk and molars, need calcium. To do this, you need to eat sesame seeds, raisins, peas, cottage cheese, milk and cheese. Vitamin D and phosphorus are also needed. Make sure that your diet must include the following foods: cod liver, fish oil, Atlantic herring, rabbit meat.
