How long a toothbrush lasts depends not only on the quality of toothbrush bristles, but also on how users use and protect toothbrushes. Generally speaking, domestic toothbrushes sold on the market at present, using L-2 months, or 2-3 months, the bristles of toothbrushes will bend.
It is suggested that the service life of toothbrushes should not exceed 3 months, but also vary from person to person. For example, some people brush their teeth with the greatest force. In less than 3 months, the brush bristles will bend and deform, so they should be replaced in time, because the cleaning effect of the toothbrush bristles with bending and deforming is obviously reduced. At the same time, it is easy to cause damage to teeth, gums and so on.
There is a kind of toothbrush. Some of the brushes in the brush head are painted with special color. With the gradual use of toothbrush, the color begins to fade from the end of the brush. As a reminder of the instructions for replacing the toothbrush, according to the design requirements, the fading of the color to a certain extent indicates that the toothbrush needs to be replaced.
In some special cases, it is also necessary to consider timely replacement of toothbrushes. For example, when a cold is cured, there will be many viruses and bacteria associated with cold on the toothbrush during the cold period. Therefore, the old toothbrushes should be abandoned to reduce the possibility of a second cold.
1. Measuring standard of good toothpaste
First, the consistency should be appropriate, extruded from the hose into strips, which can cover the teeth without splashing. Second, the friction is moderate, to have a good cleaning effect, but do not hurt the enamel. Thirdly, the paste is stable, and its acidity and alkalinity are stable, regardless of the effluent and hardness of the paste during storage. Fourth, the efficacy of toothpaste should be maintained during the effective period. Fifth, paste should be clean and beautiful, without bubbles. Six, there are proper bubbles in the process of brushing, so that the food debris can be easily suspended. Seventh, the fragrance type and taste should be appropriate. Eighth, it is a big brand, which is worthy of trust. We recommend Colgate 360 comprehensive oral health toothpaste. It can continue to reduce bacterial growth, help us to fight against the eight major oral problems, is an indispensable oral cleaning help in our daily life. In particular, Colgate’s latest 360 whitening toothpaste can continuously reduce bacterial growth, whiten teeth, help you to carry out a comprehensive oral cleaning, with healthy and white teeth.
2. Appearance standard of high quality toothbrush
Overall appearance of high quality toothbrush: short and narrow brush head, flat and straight brush handle, flat and even brush surface. The price of plate toothbrushes should not be made cheaper. Some plate toothbrushes on the market, that is, those with large and wide brush heads, full and dense brushes and small bundle spacing, are generally cheaper. The use of such brushing methods will inevitably cause some damage to teeth and gums, such as wedge-shaped defects of teeth, gingival atrophy, root exposure, widening of space between teeth and so on. In addition, the plate toothbrush can not brush the back teeth because of the big head. For a long time, the food residues in the back of the mouth will ferment and decay under the action of bacteria, and then damage the teeth. Because the damage of teeth is a slow process and can not be seen immediately, some people also think that the big head toothbrush can save time and time, but they do not know the damage caused by the long time. Recently, Colgate has launched a new Colgate 360 comprehensive oral cleaning toothbrush, its unique toothpaste brush, effective in-depth cleaning of dental seams, clear plaque, front-end dynamic brush to help clean the posterior teeth. Its unique cup-shaped tooth cleaning soft glue, more effective to help remove dental stains, make teeth bright and white. Choosing a well-designed and high-quality toothbrush is very important for protecting the health of teeth. We should start from daily life, start from drips and drips, carry out oral cleaning in 360 degrees in an all-round way, and have a healthy mouth.
3. Requirements for toothbrush bristles
Good surface finish; moderate thickness, fine deformation, rough teeth and gums are easy to damage, and the elasticity is not good; the grinding surface of the head is smooth.
4. Must grasp the correct method of brushing teeth
We should not only develop a good habit of brushing teeth, but also pay attention to the method of brushing teeth. If the brushing method is not correct, it can also cause abuse, the most common damage is the loss of teeth and gingival atrophy. Whether people can master the method of brushing teeth well depends largely on the flexibility of both hands. Although each person’s gesture of brushing teeth can be divided into clever and clumsy, as long as the full induction is given, the general people can effectively use toothbrush to clean the mouth. Children’s movements are slow and impatient, and they can’t cope with complex brushing skills. They should be taught to use simple brushing methods. For the disabled, it may be necessary to use a modified toothbrush with a brush handle for easy grip or an electric toothbrush.
5. How to test the effect of brushing teeth?
From the perspective of prevention, removing dental plaque is the focus of oral hygiene. Because dental plaque is one of the common factors of dental caries and periodontal diseases, if the plaque is removed, the prevention of dental caries and periodontal diseases will be solved; at the same time, the formation of dental calculi will be lost. The criterion for checking the effect of brushing teeth is to see if plaque has been completely removed. Colgate 360 degree Total Oral Health Toothpaste has launched a new whitening toothpaste. Its unique formula contains whitening factor, which can effectively reduce bacterial growth, whiten teeth, prevent plaque accumulation, maintain lasting fresh breath, and help you to achieve comprehensive oral health.
6. Scraping tongue fur to remove breath and prevent gastritis while brushing teeth
You know what? Most oral bacteria are not on teeth, but on our tongue and the inner wall of the mouth. According to statistics at home and abroad, the infection rate of Helicobacter pylori in the population is about 50%. This kind of microorganism is the pathogenic factor of chronic gastritis and peptic ulcer, and there is a tendency of mutual infection in a family. People with chronic gastritis should pay more attention to oral hygiene. Every morning when brushing your teeth, it’s good for you to shave off the tongue coating. A few days ago, Colgate has launched a new 360 comprehensive oral cleaning toothbrush. Its original tongue/oral inner wall cleaning soft brush can effectively remove bacteria gathering on the surface of the tongue and oral inner wall causing oral odor and make the mouth fresh. Oral experts suggest that cleaning tongue coating is an important part of oral cleaning.
7. You’d better change your toothbrush after a cold
Some people suffer from colds or upper respiratory tract infections, which are treated continuously. In addition to poor individual resistance, they may also be related to the toothbrush they use. If you don’t change your toothbrush, the cold is less likely to heal, or more likely to repeat. Therefore, the toothbrush should be placed in a ventilated and dry place. If you have a cold, it is best to soak the toothbrush with disinfectant or replace a new toothbrush. In addition, it is better for family members not to put toothbrushes together, but to place toothbrushes in multiple jars, which is more conducive to the prevention and control of infectious diseases.
8. Ten minutes after meal is the golden time for brushing teeth
Generally speaking, 10 minutes after eating food is the critical period of dental health care, because the pH value of the mouth drops from 6.8 to 4.5, acidity reaches its peak. If the teeth are not cleaned immediately at this time, these acidic substances will erode enamel on the surface of the teeth, forming decalcification phenomenon, causing tooth decay. Adherence to Colgate 360 degree comprehensive oral health toothpaste at least twice a day can continuously reduce harmful bacteria and help prevent dental caries and decay.
9. Improper brushing of teeth leads to dental fluorosis
Although fluoride toothpaste can effectively prevent dental caries, it also has side effects. If used improperly, it can easily lead to dental fluorosis. Fluoride has a very small limit between caries prevention and toxicity. Excessive fluoride intake can cause dental spots, which is dental fluorosis. When severe, it can make teeth yellowing, rough surface and easy to defect. Many Chinese and foreign scholars have found through scientific research that while dental caries are decreasing, the number of children suffering from dental fluorosis is increasing. The reason is that for children whose swallowing control ability is not perfect, swallowing fluoride toothpaste by mistake will increase the intake of fluoride, and excessive fluoride will easily lead to dental fluorosis. Therefore, for the use of fluoride toothpaste, we should have a correct familiarity and master the correct method.
10. Strengthening dental care
Traditional medicine advocates that tapping and massaging gums in the morning and evening is the most effective method. Every morning or after sleeping, gently tapping the upper and lower teeth for dozens of times can promote blood circulation of teeth and periodontal tissues. At the same time, when washing face, massaging gums by rotating the index finger up and down, eliminating gum sulcus and periodontal pocket secretions, can improve blood circulation in gums, improve resistance of periodontal tissues and prevent periodontal diseases. 。 At the same time, bad habits should be removed. Stop smoking, drinking, not eating hot and spicy food, pull out residual crown, root, sharpen the tip of teeth, remove bad restoration, in order to avoid chronic adverse stimulation. The key of oral health care is in everyone’s hands, one point care one point health, wish healthy teeth with you for life.
