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, like the Curaprox CS 5460: https://shop.curaprox.co.uk/

Have you ever wondered why we brush our teeth? 🤔 Obviously, we do it to keep them healthy, but what we're really doing is breaking down dental plaque – a soft layer of bacteria and leftover bits of food that covers your teeth. And because the layer is so soft, there’s really no need to use force. Gentle strokes with a soft brush will do the trick. Brushing too hard can damage both the protective enamel and the gums around your teeth. In other words, brushing too hard can actually lead to cavities and inflamed gums, so brush gently.

How does Curaprox 'Black is White' range works? The activated carbon in our paste, gum and charcoal brush heads simply absorbs unattractive, discoloured particles caused by things like smoking, coffee or red wine. Whilst hydroxyapatite – a rare but naturally occurring mineral – also replaces lost minerals and calcium in your tooth enamel and creates a soothing, protective layer of artificial enamel to help with sensitivity.

Do you know the difference between teeth whitening and teeth bleaching? ✔️ Bleaching uses a chemical process to make the teeth whiter than they ever have been previously. In some countries, pharmacies sell over-the-counter teeth whitening kits, and you can even buy them online. These are essentially tooth-bleaching gels of different intensities. ✔️ At Curaprox, we don’t believe in home bleaching products. We believe teeth whitening should work towards restoring your teeth to their original whitenes, in the most gentle, natural, healthy way possible. For this reason we recommend to try our Black is White, a black toothpaste that gently whitens with activated charcoal: https://bit.ly/3eMy3pU

Interdental brushing: what to avoid 👉Do not self-diagnose gum diseases, do not measure your own interdental space and do not stock up on interdental brushes based on self-diagnosis. Interdentals have to be picked out by a professional 👉Do not replace regular brushing with interdental brushing altogether. Interdental cleaning is a part of your brushing ritual. Regular brushing is still vital. 👉It’s generally a good idea to avoid a high-carb, high-sugar diet as it reduces your saliva’s capacity to protect your teeth. Bacteria breed better when sugars abound, so don’t give them the opportunity.

Three reasons why a soft brush is better than a hard one: ✅ Soft toothbrushes have soft and flexible bristles that cover the entire tooth and adjust to tooth shape. The more bristles a brush has, the finer and softer they can be. ✅ Your dental plaque is a soft, pudding-like substance. Soft toothbrushes clean the plaque better. ✅ Hard toothbrushes scrape away your gums until they stop protecting the neck of the tooth, which is much more sensitive to pain. Soft toothbrushes don't hurt your gums. Curaprox CS 5460 toothbrush has ultra-soft and dense bristles which are effective against plaque and gentle to your gums.

Flossing or interdental brushing? 🤔 Studies showed that interdental brushes are significantly more effective and less aggressive than floss. Dentists also point to the fact that floss can cut into gums and damage them, while the interdental brush doesn’t do that. However, some places will only allow access by floss, and your dentist will indicate this if needed. Interdental brushes go between your teeth and destroy the structures of the biofilm. A simple in-and-out movement is usually enough. The brush is then rinsed clean and can be reused. Unlike dental floss, interdental brushes have bristles that get into all corners and spaces and clean out the plaque. This makes them more effective than floss.

Checklist: 5 things to check before buying a new toothbrush. ✅ Is it soft? Use soft brushes to minimize the damage done to your teeth and gums. ✅ How dense are the bristles? The denser the bristles, the more efficient your cleaning. ✅ Is it small enough? A small head will make it easier to reach back molars. ✅ What’s the angle? A slight tilt will help you reach back molars. ✅ Do you enjoy it? Make sure brushing is a joy every time.

Considering interdental brushes? Ask your dentist to choose the right one for you 💡 Every dentist has a proper tool that helps them measure precisely your interdental space and match it with a proper type of interdental brush. You’ll get a recommendation for the exact size of the brush and maybe even some samples to try at home. It’s a good idea to try using your new interdental while still in your dentist’s office. That way, you’ll make sure you’re doing it right and not damaging your teeth and gums. Feel free to ask any questions and get familiar with your new interdental before taking it home.

Child unwilling to brush. Should you negotiate? 🤔 “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. Some parents believe that they can explain to a 2-year-old the need for brushing and oral hygiene. So, they tend to wait for the child to give their consent. But since the child does not give it, and the parents don’t want to put pressure on the child, the teeth are left unbrushed. This is clearly not the way to establish a healthy routine. Before roughly age 3 we need these short-term tactics to establish routines and rituals: games, quests, stories and challenges.” 👉 Read more on: https://gently.curaden.com/how-to-get-your-children-to-brush-teeth/

Should parents finish brushing after their children? (Yes!) “I strongly support parents helping to brush their children’s teeth all the way until the children are eight years old. A small child won’t be able to properly brush and clean out all the germs at an early age – at least, it’s very challenging. I explain to them that at 4 years old their child is unable to follow all the steps to good cleaning. Here is what I do: I show both the parents and the child the places loaded with plaque. I make them understand that this can be avoided if they do it together, as a team. I present the brushing techniques to both parents and children so the small ones know and practise, but the parents should definitely finish it.” 👉 Read more on: https://gently.curaden.com/how-to-get-your-children-to-brush-teeth/

Children have whiter teeth than adults, but why? Because children’s enamel is thicker. As we grow older the enamel wears off, and more of the dentine (which has a brownish-yellow hue) shows through. Over the years, the enamel acquires tiny cracks, scratches and openings, which are all ideal surfaces for food stains. This is how the discolouration usually starts. It’s completely normal. Accumulated over the years, these tiny traces from foods can make up the darker tint that is characteristic of grown-up teeth. A safer way to whiten your teeth at home is by using a gentle whitening toothpaste, like Curaprox 'Be You': https://shop.curaprox.co.uk/ 🛒

Conventional toothbrushes are not enough. Braces make your teeth move, and where there is movement, there will be a change in your interdental spaces. Bacteria can now find ways into new spaces between your teeth and sit there, very well protected, inaccessible to both manual and electric toothbrushes. To clean out these spaces between your teeth, you’ll need interdental brushes like the CURAPROX CPS brushes: they are gentle, easy to use and safe for your teeth and gums. ✅ Use CPS Prime to clean between your teeth ✅ Use cone-shaped CPS 14 for ribbon retainers and inner wires ✅ Use CPS 18 for the areas under the outer wires
