When we talk about dentistry is necessary to dispel any myths that could affect your dental health, on this way you can prevent dental problems or worsen some that already exist.
-Brushing your teeth with hard bristles helps you to clean it better.
FALSE! Hard bristles are known to damage the gums and produce swelling, specially if you brush too strongly.
-Baby teeth are not important.
FALSE! If a young child presents dental decay, this problem can be acquired by the new teeth. Remember, cavities are created because of bacteria that live in the surface of the teeth and gums and feed on our left over food. Without the proper hygiene you could be dooming your child to a lifetime of dental problems, lack of confidence and more.
-Use an electric brush and a manual toothbrush is the same.
FALSE! Electric toothbrushes have the ability to remove a greater amount of plaque and bacterial plaque because of the movement it generates.
-Chewing gum is bad for your teeth.
Kinda false. If you chew a sugar free gum you shouldn’t have problems, and might actually help you generate more saliva. But if you use dental prostheses, you could have a problem, because the gum can get stuck.
-Dental prostheses are forever.
In this regard permanent prostheses does not mean “forever”. They will wear out with use (even your teeth wore out!) but they should last a long time. Is necessary to wash them daily as well as carry out a series of yearly professional care.
