Which foods are better for teeth during pregnancy? Whenever possible, try to minimise your intake of foods that contain excessive acids. Acidic environments can weaken your enamel and damage your teeth. Do not brush your teeth right after you’ve eaten something acidic – wait for at least 30 minutes. ⚠ High-acid foods - lemons, limes, pomegranates, grapefruits, oranges, tangerines, apples, peaches, pineapples and their respective juices - blue plums, grapes - blueberries - tomatoes - most flavoured sodas, including zero-calorie drinks (look at contents for acids) ✅ Neutral or low-acid foods - nuts and seeds - corn, soy beans, miso, tofu - yogurt and milk (unsweetened) - mushrooms - beans and lentils, broccoli - beets, potatoes - whole grains - herbal teas - fats like olive oil and avocados

Should you play toothbrushing games with children? “Tactics like games, challenges and ‘let’s do what parents do’ – these work for children who are very small, usually before the age of 3. Children at this age don’t yet have the capacity to adjust their actions for long-term consequences. So yes, before roughly age 3 we need these short-term tactics to establish routines and rituals. We sometimes assume that small children are as smart and conscious as us grown-ups. But long-term thinking, willpower and discipline are very hard-to-master skills at an early age.” 👩‍⚕Silvia Per, paediatric dentist and PhD candidate in Bucharest

Your electric brush has to be comfortable and atraumatic. 👉 Go for the smaller heads with soft and dense bristles. Such brushes can reach difficult areas, such as the back of your molars and the inner side of the front teeth. 👉 Curaprox went a bit further here: apart from being a small and gentle brush, the Hydrasonic pro set contains a single-tuft head for a focused tartar build-up removal – with the effect of a close-to-professional cleaning. Find it in our shop: https://shop.curaprox.us.com/hydrosonic-brushes/161-hydrosonic-ortho-73349144.html

For most people, the back teeth are much more challenging to take care of, compared to front teeth: ❌ back teeth are harder to reach with regular (and even electric) brushes ❌ wisdom teeth can be slightly rotated or misaligned, which makes them more vulnerable to tooth decay. In some cases, they can even damage surrounding teeth As a result, back teeth are often overlooked which can then cause long-term problems. The solution is simple: we have to pay special attention to the back teeth. ✅ Curaprox CS 1006 is a specialised single-tuft brush that removes bacterial colonies with high precision.

Where bad breath comes from Bad breath comes from four main sources: 👉Most often it’s the bacteria in a person’s mouth. In themselves, bacteria are odourless. What we smell is the product of their existence. Bacteria find nutrients on our teeth, digest those nutrients, extract energy required for the bacteria to breed, and, well… excrete gas. 👉For chronic smokers, it can be from residue in their lungs and trachea 👉Some foods and drinks can leave a distinctive smell, e.g. coffee, garlic, spices 👉Less often, it’s a sign of disease: kidneys, stomach or severe systemic disorders If you don’t smoke and don’t suffer from chronic disease, the most likely source of bad breath is bacteria. Luckily, with proper oral care, it is easy to manage.

Bristles: one of the most important things in any toothbrush 👉Bristles are the tiny fibres at the end of your brush. If they are hard, they can damage your teeth. If they are soft, they cause no damage – plus, they can reach into tighter and harder-to-reach spaces. 👉Density is important too: the more bristles, the more cleaning actions happen as you brush. 👉Soft and dense bristles combined with the proper brushing technique will significantly improve your oral health in the long term. ✅Choose a soft brush every time.

Five facts about bacteria on your teeth: 1⃣ Your mouth is home to hundreds of different kinds of bacteria that live in balance with your immune system 2⃣ But when left untouched for a long time, bacteria can build biofilm that helps them breed 3⃣ When biofilm grows for long enough, it becomes tooth plaque that offsets the chemical balance on your teeth and weakens the enamel 4⃣ Tooth plaque leads to tooth decay, caries and gum disease. It’s best to never let tooth plaque form 5⃣ The best way to minimise the risk of tooth plaque is by brushing your teeth thoroughly, twice a day, with a soft high-density toothbrush, and cleaning out the interdental spaces with interdental toothbrushes.

Do I need an electric toothbrush? Or is a simple high-density soft brush enough? Basically, good oral health can be maintained with a soft manual toothbrush, a proper brushing technique and an interdental brush. However, the tech-savvy users and the most health-conscious people can consider an electric toothbrush as the way to go: a combination of a well-designed electric brush and daily interdental brushing can be a breakthrough for many people. Studies showed that sonic toothbrushes clean up to 10% better than the manual brush, and with the best devices out there, you can get up to 42,000 brush strokes per minute. If the brush head has the right tilt, the bristles are soft and the motor is versatile enough, you can create an unmatched brushing experience. The right brush tilt at a slight angle ensures better reach and optimal cleaning angles. This efficiency is particularly useful for people who for any reason are limited in executing fine brushing movements. Less physical movements are needed while brushing, and the results will still be exceptional. Curaprox Hydrosonic pro already comes packaged with a proper set of heads designed for cleaning braces, as well as implants, and there are refills available for order.
