NEW VIDEO: "Placing Toothpaste on your teeth and not your toothbrush"
It's important to use a toothpaste with the right concentration of fluoride. Check the packaging to find out how much fluoride each brand contains. Dr. Kohler says in his video, he recommends Sensodyne Repair and Protect for the stannous fluoride it has as the active ingredient. What is stannous fluoride and why is it the best? Check out this video from another dental expert who gives great insight into toothpaste science!! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oDpDFAjPgFM
Fluoride serves not only as a threat to bacteria in the mouth but it also reinforces the enamel protecting your teeth. Plaque is a film of bacteria that coats your teeth if you don't brush them properly. It contributes to gum disease and tooth decay.
Make sure you brush every surface of all your teeth. It is really important for that toothpaste to hit every individual tooth. When the toothpaste foams up and grows in volume as you brush your teeth, it’s not cleaning as much as you think! What you’re getting in that foam is a diluted toothpaste, water, air, and saliva mixture. So, applying the toothpaste directly to every tooth in your mouth ensures that you don’t miss a spot. When it is well-applied, a pea-sized amount of toothpaste can go a long way in maintaining your oral health alongside visiting your dentist regularly.
Use the Right Tools Well
Let’s break down that phrase into its two parts: Right Tools and Well. Between acids in our foods, teeth grinding, even the abrasive properties of toothpaste itself, there is no reason for you to use a hard-bristle toothbrush. In fact a soft bristle toothbrush is best.
