How to maintain excellent dental hygiene!

After having my second child, I found out that I had gum recession, which is called periodontal disease. Periodontal disease is where they measure your recession in millimeters. Gums don’t grow back, so I didn’t want this disease to get worse. This disease can also increase your chances of having a stroke or heart disease, if you don’t treat it or take care of your teeth.

I brush my teeth for at least two minuets with Paridontax toothpaste. Brush your teeth in circular motions, but not too hard.

Then I use a water flosser. You can read about water flossers here.

Then I use regular floss.

Then I use three mouth washes.

It is important to use fluoride mouthwash to prevent cavities and keep your teeth strong.

You can also get this paste online to strengthen and protect your enamel. It’s more expensive at the dentist but you can find it online.

There you have it. I haven’t had any increase in my recession. I think all of this is important especially flossing.

Pin for later! <3

  2. I have got a water flosser to and, ever since I started using it, I have felt and seen an improvement in my teeth and overall mouth health. Definitely a game changer!

  3. Apples and pears (and other fruits with similar grainy texture) are also good for the gums. Their slight crunch massages the soft tissue and stimulates blood flow.
