In this article CBC News contributor Joanna Tappe has a quick and dirty tip on how to get your teeth clean, without damaging your teeth.
Tappe says you should never use toothpaste or anything that could be used to polish the surface of your teeth, but you should still get them checked.TAPPE: I use a good quality toothpaste, and it’s a white powder that you use on the back of the toothbrush and then it’s sprayed on the surface and then you just wash your teeth with it and you do it a few times a week.
If you have a toothache or it’s really painful, I’d say to start with one brush and then get another brush.
If you’ve got some problems like if you’ve had a big tooth bite, then you should use another brush or two to do it.TAPFE: You can get a really strong toothbrush, or maybe a plastic toothbrush or a really small one that you just use to scrub your teeth and it really does the job.TAPEY: And it’s easy to get a little bit of grit in the bristles and then the bristly gets really tight and the bristle can break off.
You can also just scrub them with a toothbrush.
It’s kind of like rubbing a hot iron on the brush.TENDEY: You just just take the brush and brush the surface, and you rinse it out and put it back in the box.
So that’s pretty simple.TUNTENBERG: And then you have to wash your mouth with soap and water and that’s also really simple.
It just takes a couple of minutes.TUTTENBERG: So you can wash your face with water, so that’s really simple, too.
TUTTINBERG is the chief medical officer for the Association of Professional Cleaners of Ontario.TATTIE: It’s really really simple to do, because you just rinse your mouth and it just comes off really easily.
You just just rinse the mouth with water and put the brush back in your box and rinse your face, wash your hands, rinse your feet and so on.
So there are some things you need to do on a regular basis that really just make your life easier.
So, the first thing you should do is get a tooth brush.
TAPPE says you can get some very good ones.
And then the next thing you need is a good mask, because it’s not just brushing your teeth anymore.TANDY: You have to use a mask for every time you brush your teeth or you can actually make it worse by using the mask when you’re not brushing.
And so, I would really recommend getting a mask when brushing your lips.TALLIS: I think it’s just a little too late to have that.
TALLIS is the director of the Oral Health Clinic at the University of Guelph.TALIS: You should use a mouthwash for the entire day and that’ll help to really break down the plaque on your teeth which is one of the things that can really put you at risk of dental caries and prevent tooth decay.TANTO: The most important thing that I would say is to use your toothbrush after brushing your mouth.
You should never go back to brushing your tooth, especially when you have an oral health issue.TANNENBERT: I always do.
I just just wash my mouth with the brush, I just rinse it and then I put it in the fridge.TANGERINE: I just put the toothpaste in my mouthbrush and I wash it out with warm water and then put it on the shelf.TANNAH: I would never use a toothpaste on my teeth.
But you know, it can be a little tricky to know how much to use, so you need a really good toothbrush to use.
TANNAI is the founder of Tooth Care For All.TAMARINE: And I would definitely use a brush for brushing your tongue and your lips, because those are the areas that are most prone to plaque and then your cheeks and you should also use a scrub brush to scrub that off.TASSAN: So what are the best tools to get dental health back in place?TAPE: You need to get that mask and then then you need some sort of a protective barrier.
And the best way to do that is to get some kind of mouthguard.
So if you can use your mouth in that, you can make it really easy to brush your mouth again.TASTERMAN: So, you’re really just brushing the teeth, so I would just get a small toothbrush that you can just use and brush them with.TESSIER: I love using a brush to brush my teeth, because that makes it really, really easy.TESTY: So brushing your face is the one thing that you
