Oral care (Home Remedies)

A clean mouth is a healthy mouth,  but also a healthy body. Studies have shown poor dental care can result in disease and over-all poor health

So brushing, flossing and seeing your dentist regularly is of upmost importance for maintaining a healthy mouth.

Sensitive teeth and gum

  • Try putting some of the toothpaste on your finger or on a cotton swab and spreading it over the sensitive spots before you go to bed.Spit, but don’t rinse. Within a few weeks, your teeth should begin to feel less sensitive.
  • Try a fluoride rinse. rinses, fluoride available without a prescription at your local pharmacy or in the dental section of grocery stores, can help decrease sensitivity, especially for people plagued with decay problems. Use it once a day. Swish it around in your mouth, then spit it out.
  • Sometimes, people with sensitive teeth need a stronger fluoride rinse or gel than the ones available over the counter. For example, some treatments for gum disease, such as root planing (which reduces plaque), can leave sensitive teeth even more sensitive than usual. In such situations, dentists can apply a fluoride gel that helps relieve the problem.
  • Keep your teeth clean. Plaque, the white gummy substance that forms on teeth, produces an acid that irritates teeth, especially if your choppers are naturally sensitive. Wage a daily attack against plaque by brushing at least twice, preferably right after eating and especially before bed, and flossing at least once.
