Nothing but the tooth - The rule of 2

Do you give enough prominence to your dental health and make sure to follow good oral habits? How well you care for your oral health speaks a lot about your overall health, which is why it is said that the mouth is the gateway to the body. To ensure this is carried out without hassle, we would like to introduce you to ‘The rule of 2s’.

Do you brush your teeth twice a day?

Brushing the teeth first thing in the morning is a healthy practice, as it gets rid of all the microbes that have accumulated in the mouth during sleep. It is advisable to brush the teeth before consuming any food, as the microbes can enter the stomach if you do so. Brushing the teeth before going to bed is crucial, as the bacteria and food residues that may have been deposited in the mouth throughout the day have to be removed thoroughly. It significantly reduces the chance of developing cavities and gum disease.

How long do you brush your teeth?

Brushing the teeth for no less than two minutes is vital to make sure the oral bacteria are removed from the hard-to-reach parts of the mouth, such as the intersection of two teeth, the rear teeth, etc. Brushing for two minutes twice a day would help to cleanse all the prominent surfaces of the teeth just fine. Individuals must also take care not to brush for too long, as it could result in demineralization, wear of the teeth, abrasive injuries to the gums, etc.

How often do you visit the dentist?

Visiting the dentist for routine consultations would be necessary to conduct regular dental exams, spot the onset of unforeseen oral conditions, and carry out oral cleaning sessions. The dentist will thoroughly diagnose your mouth and check for tartar deposits on the teeth. If any, we will remove them by ultrasonic scaling and wash away the debris using a jet of water. Cavities will be treated by getting rid of the decay and filling it with tooth-colored filling material - made from either ceramic or composite resin. Apart from these, the screening process will give the dentist a better idea of the state of your oral health and suggest suitable treatment if required.
