8 Major Mistakes We Make When Taking Care of Our Teeth

Foods containing calcium:

  • dairy products
  • fruit and vegetable skins

Foods containing phosphorus:

  • fish

We usually receive the necessary everyday dose of fluorine with water. However, if you live in a region where the water has a low concentration of fluorine, you should eat more foods containing fluorine, such as milk, salt, etc.

6. We don’t use additional tooth-cleaning devices.

It doesn’t matter how hard your toothbrush hairs are, they still can’t remove tooth deposits completely. That is why it is important to clean the gaps between your teeth with dental floss. If the gaps are quite wide, you can use an interdental brush. To annihilate bacteria, rinse your mouth with mouthwash.

You can also obtain an oral irrigator. It is like a shower for your teeth and gums which you can use after each brushing session. A thin stream of water and interchangeable nozzles can clean your tongue and the gaps between your teeth and massage your gums.

5. We don’t take care of our gums.

If your gums are weak and don’t have a great enough blood supply, it can lead to periodontitis. With this disease, your gums bleed, become inflamed and soft, and reveal dental necks. And you can eventually lose your teeth.
