Lets Debunk Some Dental Myths!
Lets Debunk Some Dental Myths!
March 9, 2021
I don’t know about you, but I love reading about old wives’ tales, and learning about funny beliefs that no longer apply today. It’s fascinating to see how far we have come!
While some myths are harmless, there are others that can actually be harmful. Today, we are going to explore some dental myths that are best left for storytelling only!
Brushing Harder Cleans Better
Brushing harder is counterproductive. The harder you brush, the more damage is caused to the tooth enamel and gum tissue. It can eventually lead to gum recession and other problems. Brush gently, twice daily EmiSmile Brush! The effective silicone micro bristles on a U shaped brush head is the perfect way to clean effectively without over-brushing or causing damage to gums or enamel.
Sugar Causes Cavities
Surprisingly sugar itself does not cause cavities, but it does matter how long the sugar stays in your mouth! The longer sugar stays in your mouth, the more acid the bacteria produce. The problem is the acid-producing bacteria that eats the sugar can erode tooth enamel. Weak tooth enamel can cause tooth decay, which results in cavities. Rinse and brush after meals to reduce the acid and plaque buildup!
Flossing Is Not Really Necessary
Flossing is an integral part of a good oral care routine, starting at 2-3 years old. Flossing removes up to 80% of plaque that toothbrush bristles cannot reach.
Kids Don’t Need to Brush Baby Teeth
Poor oral health early on can lead to lifelong complications. Kids should establish an oral care routine, including brushing teeth twice per day as soon as they have teeth. Tooth decay in children can lead to health concerns long after their baby teeth are gone. EmiSmile Brush focuses on establishing great dental hygiene early on, which will lead to a future of great dental care!
If You Have No Dental Concerns, There’s No Need for an Exam
An exam is the best way to spot trouble before it starts. The longer problems go undetected or untreated, the harder they are to treat when you do start to notice them. Semi-annual dental exams for adults and kids are the best way to maintain optimal oral health — so even if you don’t notice anything amiss, it’s best to still schedule routine dental checkups.
Brushing Before Going To The Dentist Will Hide Your Bad Dental Habits
Some people step up their oral care routine just before going for a checkup. The bad news is that the dentist can always tell! Inflamed gums, hard tartar and plaque build-up cannot be removed by a single brushing and flossing session. Those dental conditions are formed over months. You are not fooling experts. It is best to tell the truth so you can be given proper advice on dental care.
Its so important to know the facts from the fables. It is also important for kids to understand the importance of brushing after eating that yummy donut!
