Why It Is Important To Be More Than Once?
Oral health is part of our overall health chain system. Brushing teeth as everyday habit should be done more than once per day. And why?
Because bacteria thrive on food left on/or in between, and they grow there with a speed of light. If you only brush them once per day, plaque and bacteria will build upon your teeth and it will lead to having a bad breath, tooth decay and probable gum disease.
And If You Don’t Brush Them At All?
Whenever you eat foods or drinks that are high in sugar, it will leave a sticky film of bacteria called plaque. The bacteria in plaque creates acids that attack tooth enamel, and eventually the enamel breaks down causing a little hole in the tooth, called a cavity.
What Can Help To Avoid This Process?
A three-step defense:
- and using antiseptic mouth rinse
All of these processes enhance protection of your teeth from decaying, and gums from swelling. Flossing helps to remove food particles between teeth, but mouth rinse can help reach the areas that are hard to reach with tooth brush, successfully penetrate into plaque and make it break down.
Also,brushing your teeth just once per day can lead to other serious oral issues like gingivitis. It causes pure disaster on your gums, leaving them red and swollen, not to mention the bleeding that you’ll have when you spit during brushing teeth.
Plaque can spread below the gum line and can irritate the gums, which surely will lead to a chronic inflammatory response leaving your teeth and gums with bone and tissue loss.
As a result of that, pockets are being formed between teeth and gums,and they become irritated and infected. As peritonitis progresses, pockets get deeper and more gum tissue and bone loss ensue, and in some cases it results as a tooth loss.
With a good professional treatment and good oral health habits, it is reversible process. And if you already have such condition, there are also toothpaste on the market helping to cure this condition besides professional help.
Remember, brushing, flossing and rinsing should be part of every morning and evening routine(and in between meals also).
But,the question still remains unanswered – how often do you brush yours?
