We have to brush our teeth every day, but we pay attention to the times, time and methods of brushing. We should pay attention to mastering the correct methods, so that we can take care of our oral health!
Mom and dad have said since childhood that they should brush their teeth when they get up together every day and before going to bed at night, at least twice a day. Even so, there are still some modern people who like to “be lazy” and don’t want to brush their teeth at night. They think it’s better to get up and brush clean the next day. As everyone knows, brushing your teeth before going to bed is actually more important than brushing your teeth in the morning!
1、 Brushing your teeth before bed is more important than brushing your teeth in the morning
There is a reason why brushing your teeth before going to bed is more important, because after eating, food debris can remain in your mouth, which is conducive to bacterial breeding. Especially after sleeping at night, most people’s mouth is closed, at this time, the mouth is in a relatively closed state, and in the hypoxia environment, bacteria will be more reckless reproduction.
In addition, the fermentation of food residues takes about 6-8 hours, just in the rest period at night, so it also provides conditions for bacterial reproduction. Affected by these factors, if you don’t brush your teeth honestly before going to bed at night, bacteria will breed in large numbers. Over time, it is easy to cause a variety of diseases.
It is still necessary to brush your teeth before going to bed. If you are more lazy, you may induce a variety of diseases:
If you don’t brush your teeth before going to bed, it can lead to the breeding of a variety of bacteria, such as Streptococcus mutans and lactic acid bacteria, which can produce acids after fermenting food residues, corrode your teeth and eventually induce dental caries. Some studies have found that people with dental caries are four times more likely to have cerebral thrombosis than ordinary people. Because such patients contain a large number of bacteria, which can damage the intima of blood vessels when entering the blood circulation. Over time, it may induce cerebral thrombosis.
A British study found that people who do not brush their teeth or brush their teeth less often have a 70% higher risk of heart disease than those who brush their teeth twice a day. Because without brushing teeth, bacteria in the mouth can invade the blood, stimulate blood vessels and cause arteriolar spasm. If the coronary artery is involved, contraction spasm occurs, coupled with the effect of small thrombus, it is easy to find acute myocardial infarction.
If you don’t brush your teeth, you will have a greater chance of infection with Helicobacter pylori, which will lead to chronic gastritis, gastric ulcer and other gastric diseases, and even one of the main causes of gastric cancer. Therefore, brush your teeth honestly, especially at night. Don’t be lazy, otherwise it will be too late to regret when the disease “comes to the door”.
2、 Do you brush your teeth for breakfast first, or do you brush your teeth after breakfast?
There has also been controversy over the order of brushing teeth and eating in the morning, whether to “brush your teeth first and eat breakfast” or “eat breakfast first and then brush your teeth”. Some people think that brushing your teeth before eating can avoid eating more bacteria, while others think that brushing your teeth after breakfast can ensure oral hygiene. What should I choose?
Let’s start by brushing our teeth before eating
If you follow this model, it is more conducive to oral cleaning, because brushing your teeth at this time can timely clean the bacteria stuck in your mouth all night, and it can also help to freshen your breath. Otherwise, if saliva and air stay in your mouth all night, the bacteria that can produce odor multiply quickly and are prone to bad smell.
Take another look: eat first and then brush your teeth
If you follow this order, you can not only avoid the residue of breakfast residue left in your teeth, but also remove the peculiar smell caused by food residue after eating, so as to avoid embarrassment caused by peculiar smell.
It can be seen that each of these two sequences has its own advantages. No one must be the best. We don’t need to tangle too much. We can choose the most convenient one according to our habits and work and rest rules, and then brush our teeth carefully.
3、 To brush your teeth correctly, you need to do these 5 things well
We should pay more attention to how to brush our teeth, because brushing our teeth is also exquisite.
Choose a toothbrush: a suitable toothbrush is also very important for oral cleaning. It is recommended that you try to choose a toothbrush with small brush head (which can operate in the mouth more flexibly), blunt bristle tip, elastic but not too dense, and moderate hardness.
Floss: flossing occasionally is also helpful for oral cleaning, because flossing can go deep into the adjacent surface of the teeth and scrape off the residual dental plaque. Relevant data show that the risk of dental caries of people who use dental floss is about 17.4% lower than those who do not use dental floss.
Toothpaste: for the selection of toothpaste, generally focus on those with cleaning function. It has little effect on whitening, moth prevention, desensitization and hemostasis, especially on the prevention of dental caries and periodontitis.
Brushing method: brushing your teeth is also about methods. It doesn’t mean that just let the toothbrush “roll” around in your mouth. Pay attention to brushing your teeth effectively. Xiao Jiu recommends a big method of brushing teeth – pasteurization, as follows:
1,When brushing teeth, keep the toothbrush bristles at an angle of 45 ° to the tooth surface, and gently press the bristles towards the teeth, so as to brush more places as much as possible.
2,When brushing your teeth, first brush horizontally, and then rotate from top to bottom and from bottom to top. In short, brush every corner as much as possible.
3,When brushing the upper row of teeth, keep the bristles flush up and the lower row of teeth flush down. Brush 2 ~ 3 teeth at a time for a total of 3 minutes.
We have to brush our teeth every day, but we pay attention to the times, time and methods of brushing. We should pay attention to mastering the correct methods, so that we can take care of our oral health.
