It is recommended to brush one’s teeth twice a day with a soft-bristled brush that fits one’s mouth in size and shape, giving you easy access to reach all areas.

It is also important to replace one’s toothbrush every three or four months or sooner if the bristles are frayed, as a worn toothbrush will not provide the efficiency and effectiveness that is required of a good job in cleaning the teeth.

American Dental Association (ADA) recommends using fluoride toothpaste and a proper brushing technique by placing the toothbrush at a 45-degree angle to the gums and gently moving the brush back and forth in short tooth-wide strokes. bottes ugg pas cher air max 1 og moncler paris canada goose Blousons nike air max 2012 timberland pas cher First brushing the outer surfaces and then progressing to the inner surfaces and thereafter continuing to the chewing surfaces of the teeth. doudoune moncler pas cher ugg france moncler Doudounes vente de newbalance However to clean the inside surfaces of the front teeth, one would have to tilt the brush vertically and make several up-and-down strokes. timberland soldes prix doudoune moncler Finally it is imperative to brush the tongue to remove odour-causing bacteria and have fresh breath.

Tooth decay-causing bacteria could still linger between the teeth where toothbrush bristles cannot reach and this is where flossing helps to remove plaque and food particles from between the teeth and under the gum line. asics chaussures puma basket bottes timberland ugg zalando Most adult toothpaste formulations provide combined effects of caries protection through various fluoride compounds such as Sodium Fluoride (NaF), Stannous Fluoride (SnF2), or Monofluorophosphate (MFP2) with a blend of other agents employed to control plaque, tartar and gum disease through Triclosan or Zinc Citrate, etc.    

Hot and Cold Foods Tooth ache – Dentinal Hypersensitivity

A short, sharp pain that endures for a short while on consuming cold or hot beverages or foods is something that troubles a significant portion of our population. puma pas cher canada goose puma sneakers timberland chaussures Achat Puma This occurs when the hard shiny lacquer of enamel on the surface of the teeth (or the white cementum of roots) is worn off and the underlying porous, softer and yellower dentine is exposed. doudoune canada goose timberland pas cher timberland Cold or heat causes the movement of fluid within tiny tubes (pores) located in the dentin (dentinal tubules) triggering off the small nerves within these tubules which go all the way through the dental pulp into the roots of the teeth. asics pas cher nike x fragment nike air max femme nike internationalist This pain can be a sharp shooting pain or a dull tenderness that could last a while.

The causes of teeth sensitivity could vary due to a faulty or harsh brushing technique, clenching and wearing of teeth at night (bruxism) or could be due to a gum disease or cavities, or it could just be worn out fillings that need replacements.

Dentistry – Branches of Specialization

Dentistry offers five clinical branches of specialized treatment and three non-clinical areas of expertise.

Prosthodontics – this branch deals with the replacement of missing teeth with fixed or removable artificial substitutes

Conservative Dentistry and Endodontics – which deals with the restoration of teeth with fillings and root canal treatment of infected teeth

Orthodontics – is a branch which deals with the correction of malpositioned or misaligned teeth.

Pedodontics and Preventive dentistry – is a specialty that deals with children, including prevention of tooth decay, restoration of children’s teeth, dealing with special children and overall considerations of children’s dental development including counselling.
