How to take care of your teeth

To take care of your teeth you need a manual or electric toothbrush, an interdental floss / mouthwash and a suitable toothpaste.


The electric toothbrush and the mouth irrigator are of choice because they allow you to completely sanitize your teeth easily, without injuring your gums.

For people who have very close teeth and do not use the oral irrigator, I recommend the dental floss with wax and for those who have large spaces between the teeth, I can use a wax-free interdental floss or an interdental toothbrush.


Mouthwash, I personally recommend the transparent one or for whitened teeth, less the colored one, especially if you want to keep your teeth white. It is enough to use it several times a week, diluted and not daily.


Toothpaste for adults can be fluoride or fluoride-free, I personally alternate them. Please note that certain fluoride toothpastes are not indicated for children under 7 years of age. Toothpastes with the most natural ingredients such as fennel, sage, mint, anise, lemon, strawberries are optimal because they do not cause that feeling of vomiting during brushing that you can have on certain toothpastes.


Tooth brushing is important 30 minutes after a meal. Salivary pH is acidic immediately after eating and can attack the enamel, so it is good to wait.

The evening is the time when you can clean your teeth more meticulously. Do not aggress your gums with a quick brushing or pressing very hard on the tooth. Toothbrush brushes should be of medium hardness.


Sometimes oral hygiene at home is not enough, so a professional descaling and brushing at least once or twice a year will maintain a healthy status of the teeth and gums.


If you smoke, drink coffee, coke or eat frequently colored foods, a jet of baking soda with water, the so-called airflow is essential to remove superficial stains. When you have dental work, implants, braces, all the more rigorous hygiene is useful, both at home and at your favorite dentist.


When you take care of your teeth and gums, you actually take care of your smile!

With a smile you express your well-being, thanks to a healthy smile you increase your confidence! What could be more pleasant than a healthy smile?


With joy,
