Is it OK to use mouthwash instead of brushing? No, and here is why First, we don’t need to kill off normal bacterial flora in our mouths. We just want to disrupt the biofilm to prevent tooth decay and gum disease. Second, mouthwashes do not penetrate the biofilm. You need mechanical action that is done with a toothbrush. Use a soft brush with high-density bristles. For interdental space, use interdental brushes.

The interdental space is the most vulnerable part of your teeth: it is susceptible to bacteria, and impossible to reach with regular brushing. Bacteria build up between your teeth and produce toxic waste, which erodes the enamel and irritates gums. Gum disease begins in the interdental spaces and spreads across gums. And all that starts with a little bacterial build-up between your teeth. The solution is simple: brush between your teeth. To enable that, we designed a specialised interdental brush – CURAPROX CPS.

How to treat your toothbrush in 3 simple steps: 👉 Replace your toothbrush every three months to avoid bent bristles and the accumulation of bacteria. 👉 Don’t apply too much pressure. A toothbrush often wears out too quickly as the result of applying too much pressure or having a poor cleaning technique. 👉 Replace your toothbrush immediately after an illness. After a common cold or any other infectious disease, it’s a good idea to just get a new one. If you don’t, the illness might return.

How to avoid tooth decay from bacterial colonies? 👉 Brush twice a day, for two minutes, with a soft brush. We must destroy the structure of the colony. 👉 Use interdental brushes to clean out the interdental areas where conventional brushes don’t reach. 👉 Avoid high-sugar diets that help bacteria breed. 👉 Minimise stress and lack of sleep – these lower our capacity to fight bacteria. 👉 Consult your dentist for professional advice on oral care. |

Why is holding the toothbrush under a 45° angle important? Why a 45° angle? Bacteria and plaque usually hide in the gumline – sulcus. To get rid of them more effectively, the brush head should be slightly inclined towards the sulcus and placed half on the gums and half on the teeth.

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.

Did you know that over-brushing is a thing? If you don't have braces, cleaning teeth right after every meal can actually do more harm than good. When we eat, the acidity in the mouth increases to help us break down the food. Brushing while these acids are still active rubs them deeper into the enamel and damages the teeth. Luckily, your mouth has a natural solution. It uses saliva to neutralise the acids and rinse your mouth. After you eat, let your body do the cleaning work. And if you still can't live without frequent brushing, give it at least 30 minutes’ head start.

Proper brushing technique: Place the brush half on your teeth, half on the gums, and move in small circles. Since bacteria nest in the gumline, you should place an ultra-soft toothbrush this way: one half of the brush covers the teeth, and the other half the gums. With minimal pressure move in small circles. Don’t forget to be precise, otherwise bacteria will build up. When you rush through brushing, you can get into the habit of skipping certain parts of your teeth. Once you start slacking off on a regular basis, you allow the dental plaque to harden, create cavities, inflame the gums or turn into tartar. The parts that you neglect now have a much higher risk of getting cavities and gum inflammation in the future.
