Through life with a smile!
The first impression is the most important. Like the theater, which, according to Stanislavsky, should start with a hanger, our opinion about an unfamiliar interlocutor often consists of the first general impression of his manners, speech, ability to speak, listen and dress, sense of humor. Oddly enough, such a seemingly simple thing, like an ordinary smile, can sometimes cause serious internal problems. People with an excellent sense of humor, brilliant storytellers and clever interlocutors, once in the company of strangers for the first time, suddenly stew, pinched, and sit, as if having typed water in their mouths, although shyness is usually alien to them. The secret of this behavior is simple – many of us, alas, may have quite serious aesthetic problems with teeth, because of which it can be difficult to open our mouths again, not to mention smiling.
According to experts, the appearance of teeth that are not even struck by insidious caries often leaves much to be desired. After all, even the most ultramodern toothbrush cannot penetrate the inaccessible corners of the oral cavity, remove food traces from there, and cope with plaque, which can gradually turn into tartar. You can return your smile to radiance and whiteness in a fairly quick and painless way. In this case, professional brushing your teeth will come to the rescue, feedback on which is becoming more and more positive, and the procedure itself is becoming more and more popular.
Even absolutely healthy teeth need additional care and whitening. Indeed, many sweets, tea, coffee, chocolate, berry and grape wines, coffee, cola, not to mention tobacco, leave traces on the outer surface of our teeth – thin films that are very difficult to completely remove with a toothbrush. The real “general cleaning” in the mouth should be carried out in the dentist’s office. It passes absolutely painlessly. First, a specialist removes plaque and stones from the surface of the teeth – carrying out this procedure with the help of special tools or chemical compounds. Then grinding takes place – using equipment (mechanical brushes, rubber tips) and professional toothpaste. Then, white teeth are polished: they, like expensive furniture, are coated with a special varnish that gives the teeth a shine and protects them from caries.
Having undergone the procedure of special professional cleaning, daily and hourly you can admire your smile, which will give a good mood and self-confidence to you, and then others. Do not save on yourself. Beautiful, shiny white teeth adorn us much stronger than new-fangled wardrobe items and expensive accessories.
Dental health directly depends on the condition of the gums. According to statistics, Russians are much more likely to suffer from oral diseases than Europeans and Americans. The reason is poor hygiene. The most common myth in the field of dentistry says that nobody used to brush their teeth, but they were healthy all their lives. According to facts, the whole history of human civilization, dental health depended directly on oral hygiene, which since ancient times has been the main means of preventing dental diseases.
Despite the fact that we all are constantly developing, in our days, as in the past, the main cause of tooth loss is gum disease – periodontitis. Nine out of ten people over 35 suffer from various stages of the disease. And since periodontitis is initially not accompanied by painful sensations, many patients seek help from a doctor only when the gums begin to ache and bleed, tartar and bad breath appear, and the teeth become loose and fall out. The presence of even one of the listed symptoms indicates that it is necessary to treat first of all the gums, and not the teeth. Indeed, even such a simple procedure as restoration of teeth, before and after treatment of periodontitis will have completely different effects and consequences. Do not treat teeth without healing the gums!
The initial cause of periodontitis is the microbes that form plaque. The initial stage of this disease is gingivitis, it is characterized by inflammation and bleeding of the gums. This disease is still reversible. If the inflammatory process began in deeper tissues, then this is directly the periodontitis itself, which entails the destruction of the ligaments holding the tooth and the jawbone holding this tooth.
In order to avoid gum disease and improve their condition, careful oral care, proper hygiene, good nutrition and appropriate preventive measures are necessary. No matter how trite it may sound, but the teeth need to be brushed twice a day, and very carefully and in compliance with all the rules, and also use a toothbrush with bristles of medium hardness and in good condition. In order for the toothbrush to fully cope with its functional duties, it is necessary to change it every 2-3 months.
