Why Cleaning Teeth is so Important!
It's Not Common Knowledge - Apparently!
If you were offered a ham sandwich and you knew it would make you sick afterwards, you would surely decline it in the first place. If you neglect your teeth and was guaranteed pain, discomfort, and a disfiguring smile should you continue with that neglect, then you'd surely clean your teeth as part of your daily ritual, right? Wrong! Despite the consequences, very few people take the time to maintain their teeth and gums properly on a regular basis. In other words, many of us tend to have an invisible self destruct button on our foreheads.
It appears we have not developed a healthy fear when it comes to cleaning our teeth and good overall oral hygiene. Even though most folks run a toothbrush around their nashers at least twice a day, the majority fail to do a proper job according to dentists. Most people look at it as a necessary evil and a begrudging part of the daily grooming ritual. Others simply neglect cleaning their teeth altogether until such times as they run into major problems with cavities and gums. Everyone wants clean white teeth, and our nashers can say a lot about a person by their condition. Keeping our pearly whites in tip top condition has never been easier thanks to all the products and tools to help with home care, but they will only work if you work them.
I make it a routine to brush thoroughly at least twice a day, and floss at night. Oh, and don't forget the fluoride rinse. Well, I said I was a stickler for clean teeth. Actually, I'm always looking for new whitening teeth products. While avoiding the wrath of the dentist can be difficult, it doesn't have to be an up-hill battle anymore. There are infinite teeth cleaning tools at our disposal. From whitening toothpastes galore, to electric toothbrushes that clean like no other, so we shouldn't have too much trouble taking care of our precious choppers.
My favorite is the radius toothbrush which has a broad oval head, a thumb grip and large comfortable handle which is available in right or left orientation. For me this us a classic toothbrush. It's been around for something like 22 years so it has to be a winner.
If you look up "teeth cleaning" online, you will be dumbfounded at the websites available to you. There are sites on teeth gel, dental floss, tooth bleaching, in fact all kinds of information on proper tooth care. Maybe you're simply looking for a good whitening system that you can do at home. You will find it all on the Internet.
Since white teeth became all the rage in the 90's, everyone seems to be vying for that brighter shade. Our media has deemed you unacceptable if you lack the necessary luster. If you check out other countries, you will soon notice that they don't put near the focus on white teeth as we do. In fact, we often poke fun at them in our television programs and films. We Americans assume everyone wants perfectly straight, white teeth. I recall my trip to Taiwan, and my impression of their teeth cleaning habits. For some reason they didn't seem to mind crooked teeth, or tar stains. This baffled me, coming from America, where image is everything.
Although our society makes such an issue of beauty, teeth cleaning is necessary regardless of media inserted trends. We only get one permanent set of choppers, so we certainly need to preserve and take care of them. Teeth cleaning should be a part of your daily regime. Since you eat everyday, you should definitely take the time to brush well using a reputable brand such as Colgate toothpaste and brushes. Oh, and don't forget that toothbrush sanitizer too as those bristles can harbor all kinds of nasty germs. Keep smiling.
Women have always been pretty good at oral hygiene but it’s only in the last couple of generations that have seen men taking their teeth seriously too. This is great news for the dental business as the demand for oral care and care products has become very big business indeed. Such are the advances in these services and products that the only reason anyone should have a mouthful of bad nashers is through their own lack of oral care.
Q. How White is too White?
A. That Hollywood smile that everyone strives for might look great on the silver screen but be careful. In real life, if you become obsessed and get your teeth looking as white as your toothpaste, they will not only look unnatural, but you have lovely straight teeth, they might even look false, and that is not what your goal was. So yes, there is a danger of getting teeth looking too white.
