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 it more effective than floss.
How to destroy the plaque 💥 The only way to properly destroy the biofilm is physically disrupting its structure. 💥 You take a soft toothbrush and clean your teeth: two times a day, gently and thoroughly, front and back, until the teeth are clean. Rushing through the process won’t work: when you don’t brush properly, there’s a lot of biofilm left on the teeth, so bacteria have no problem rebuilding their colonies in the next few hours. #curaprox #toothbrush #oralhygiene
Dental plaque hides in the interdental space 📍 Everyone has some sort of interdental space, but since your tongue isn’t thin enough to get there, you might think you have none. But you do: if you ever used a toothpick, that’s where it went. 📍 Interdental space is the best place for the biofilm to accumulate: it’s usually undisturbed, quiet and full of nutrients. So even people with great brushing habits can have dental plaque accumulating in the interdental space. This place has to be cleaned.

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 interdentals before taking them home.
3 reasons to consider interdental brushes in your daily brushing ritual: https://gently.curaden.com/3-reasons-to-consider-interdental-brushes/ 📍Everyone has interdental space: if you have two teeth next to one another, you have interdental space. That’s where bacteria build their colonies. 📍Conventional brushing doesn’t reach interdental space, which leaves the bacterial colonies between your teeth untouched, so they can breed and produce bacterial waste. This waste causes caries, gum inflammation and bad breath. 📍Dental floss doesn’t reach where it’s supposed to: if there are uneven dental spaces, the floss will do nothing to the bacteria inside such space, and the bacteria will keep breeding. Consider trying interdental brushes: it’s a safer and more effective way to protect your teeth from dental plaque.
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.

A good dental professional will teach you this toothbrushing technique: https://gently.curaden.com/always-start-with-the-most-difficult-places-a-proper-toothbrushing-technique-that-actually-works/ In a nutshell: ✅ Start with the most difficult places and end with the easy ones: from the back of your molars to the front teeth, from the inside to the outside. ✅ Hold the brush like a pen while brushing to make sure you don’t push hard on your teeth. ✅ Hold the brush under a 45° angle to clean bacteria from your gumline. ✅ Place the brush half on your teeth, half on the gums, and move in small circles. ✅ Test yourself: Lick your teeth to see if you’ve done it right.

Your teeth enamel is hard, but you should always brush gently The enamel covering the top of your teeth is the hardest part of your body, and for a good reason. Whenever you chew food, forces of up to 30 kg are exerted on your teeth. That is roughly the weight of four bowling balls. Since the enamel is hard, it may seem logical that it requires hard treatment – vigorous brushing and extreme pressure. But that’s not actually the case. Scrubbing your teeth vigorously with hard bristles will result in a receding gum line. The hard bristles slowly scrape away your gums until they stop protecting the neck of the tooth, which is much more sensitive to pain. When you are choosing a toothbrush, ask yourself: What kind of a ritual would I like to have on a daily basis? A gentle one that leaves me feeling refreshed, or a rough, painful one?
"People still believe that genetics is the cause of everything wrong with their health or teeth. It is not. Of course, genetics plays a role to some extent, but please remember: a clean tooth cannot get sick.” — Ana Stevanović, Head of Professional Education at Curaden Read on:
How to take a morning to a whole new level: 🌞 Wake up at the right time during the sleep cycle. During sleep, the body cycles through different sleep stages. Light sleep starts when we begin to drift in and out of sleep and our body only needs a nudge to wake up. The deepest part of sleep is the hardest to wake up from. This is why waking up during the light sleep stage is important. Fitness trackers or apps like Sleep Cycle or SleepScore will monitor the sleep stages and wake up just at the right time. 🌞 Work out before breakfast. Working out on an empty stomach helps us burn excess fat, instead of just using energy gained during breakfast. Early morning workouts also boost the energy levels for the day, improve blood circulation and help get rid of unwanted kilos. 🌞 A quick round with an interdental brush. 80% of cavities and almost all inflammations in the mouth originate in the space between the teeth. To clean that area, use an interdental brush. The soft bristles of interdental brushes remove dental plaque much more effectively than waxed dental floss. https://gently.curaden.com/how-to-have-a-better-morning-try-adding-these-three-habits/

CURAPROX ABC: X for Xerostomia 🤓 Xerostomia, also known as dry mouth, is nothing else than dryness in the mouth, which may have more than one cause: a change in the composition of saliva, reduced salivary flow, a side effect of medication, mouth-breathing, dehydration, radiotherapy, chemotherapy and several diseases. Sometimes there is no concrete cause, and there may be other reasons such as stress and anxiety.😨 Reduced saliva in your mouth leads to a weakened antibacterial system in the mouth and it can also increase the formation of mouth ulcers. 🙈 Our ENZYCAL line is enriched with enzymes and minerals and therefore perfect to boost the immune system in the mouth, not only for patients suffering from xerostomia or ulcers, but for everyone, for everyday use.👍🏻
