Busting Common Myths on Oral Health

Posted in: Dentistry, by thecourtyardclinic, on 16th November 2016 | 0 comments

BRUSHINGBrush your teeth with fluoride toothpaste to ensure that teeth remain healthy. A healthy diet rich in calcium is also important for healthy teeth. Let’s look at a few myths and the truth.

Key takeaways:

  • Baby teeth do not matter: That’s a myth. Decay of baby teeth may harm the permanent teeth that appear in later life.
  • Mouthwash instead of brushing: That’s a myth. Only brushing is capable of getting rid of plaque that builds upon the teeth.
  • Older people need not brush their teeth: That’s a myth. Brushing is important across all ages. Older people can enjoy a better quality of life by regularly brushing their teeth.

We recommend brushing the gums, tongue and palate with a soft-bristled brush. Dentures should be cleaned daily with a strong but soft-bristled brush to remove food deposits and plaque.
