When most people brush their teeth, they habitually dip the toothbrush in wet before squeezing the toothpaste. However, some studies have suggested that toothbrushes without water can be cleaner. So, do you need to dip in water before brushing your teeth?
Some people think that dipping water before brushing is easy to make toothpaste bubbles, it seems to be able to clean the teeth more cleanly, but in fact, a lot of bubbles are more likely to cause people to have illusions. They think that the place covered by foam has been brushed, so that we should carefully brush every tooth’s gap carefully.
The correct way is to brush without dipping in water, just squeeze the toothpaste and brush your teeth slowly in your mouth, let the gradually secreted saliva soak the toothpaste and foam, so that you can achieve the greatest effect of cleaning your teeth.
However, some people believe that not dipping in water before brushing will make the toothbrush dry, so direct brushing will damage the health of the gums, and in the long run, it will be worthless to change gingivitis. For these two statements, Jin Ming, deputy director of Stomatology Department of the First Affiliated Hospital of Tsinghua University, pointed out that it is better to infiltrate the toothbrush first and brush the teeth again.
When choosing the hardness of toothbrush, people also pay attention to it. For example, patients with periodontal disease need to choose soft hair toothbrush, which is beneficial to cleaning the periodontal belt. People without periodontal disease can choose toothbrushes with medium soft and hard bristles and smaller brush heads. Toothbrushes are not recommended to be used for too long, otherwise the brush bristles are easy to accumulate bacteria, which is not conducive to oral health.
In fact, if you want to clean your teeth, learning the right way to brush your teeth is the key. The best way to brush teeth is to make the head of the brush incline to the gum 45 degrees and massage in circles. This method can clean teeth and gums from many angles. In addition, it is suggested that after brushing teeth, floss should be used to clean up the dirt which is difficult to be brushed out in the crevices.
In addition, the storage of toothbrushes is also very exquisite. Many people like to brush their teeth and put the head of the toothbrush in the cup. It is wrong to put the head of the toothbrush in the cup after brushing. It is easy to make the toothbrush not easy to dry and cause germs. The correct way is to put the head of the toothbrush upward.
