Tooth loss for any possible reason is always considered as one of the most concerning incidences in our life. Every time we loose a tooth, it almost feels like we are loosing a big part of our body. Loss of proper functionality is only one aspect of the tooth loss.It also could become even more stressful when the missing tooth is going to be in the front area where it could potentially affect your smile and your social life. Therefore , it is always worth the effort to try to consider some measures that could prevent this stressful situation. As always said, prevention is worth the treatment. The biggest question you can always ask is how to prevent tooth loss !

If you ask your dentist how they could prevent the tooth loss, the majority of answers are going to be around your oral care.

How long Do we really need to brush our teeth?

Everyday almost all of our patients ask us the same question. How long do we really need to brush our teeth?

The answer to the question is simple. We need to brush our teeth long enough that we can make sure our teeth surfaces are really clean. I Know every body would like to have some number in mind to make it easier to remember, but hang on ! we get to that. I you ever washed dishes with hands , you would notice that at the beginning of washing your plate ,especially if you are washing something really oily, you hand is going to slide and maybe  you need to use your detergent a few times to get a nice and shiny surface. The same analogy goes for our teeth. Our teeth have a nice and shiny surface that need to be cleaned on a daily basis to prevent cavities and gum disease. Imagine that our teeth surfaces are greasy and oily. What we need to do then is to make sure we take enough time on our brushing to make sure we get a nice shiny surface. How do we do that? The very first important point to know is that each tooth has 5 surfaces . These surfaces are : out side, inside, front side and back side of the contact areas and chewing surfaces. It is interesting to know that the best brushing ever can only clean 3 surfaces. Therefore, it is very important to use Dental floss to make sure we also clean the contact surfaces right in between our teeth. The important key point here is to make sure you brush long enough with intermitted rinsing to be able to hear sort of squeaky sound. That is absolutely true. If you brush properly ,long enough you will be able to hear that squeaky sound. Same rule applies when you floss in between your teeth. I hope you enjoyed our short quick blog today!
