We all have very good teeth. Despite sometimes the facts leading us to conclude the opposite.
Dental decay and disease on the gums are totally preventable (apart from a minority of specific cases) and are considered behavioural diseases.
It means that we develop cavities and bleeding gums mainly because we misunderstand or were not informed about the roots of the problem.
Cleaning our mouth means clean “bacterias”. It sounds obvious, and we all might think we do it correctly. But, has your dentist or hygienist showed how and where to brush and floss properly? Had them demonstrated it with a brush in your own mouth? If not, ask them. It is important!
Generally, we concentrate in the chewing surface and the outside areas of our teeth and neglect the internal areas (close to the tongue in the lower and to the palate in the upper). Most important of all, the brush will never be able to remove bacterias between our teeth.
Keep in mind, “bacterias”.
