Are You Oral Health Concious?

Tagged Under : ,

 I am very conscious of my oral health also like the rest of you.  I read a lot about products that are safe and effective.  I have tried a lot and some products have impressed me but most of them upon research doesn’t really help and at times worsen the condition of your oral cavity.  I have been using mouthwash with great alcohol content and have found it really effective because of its strong minty taste that is left after rinsing.  I used it to shield me against bad breath and help me interact socially with everybody without being conscious of my breath.  All those years that I have been using the product I thought it was helping me, to my surprise my dentist told me that too much alcohol content in a mouthwash can cause dryness of the mouth, thus, making your mouth desirable environment for bacterial infestation

And as we all know when we make a desirable environment for the bacteria, we are encouraging growth and multiplication leading to an undesirable condition like bad breath.  Try therabreath and see if that helps at all.

Good thing I always consult with my dentist if prolonged use of some products wouldn’t harm me.  Another product I came to love is the toothpaste with whiteners.  After more than a month or two of use I had teeth sensitivity attacks which are very unusual to me.  I visited my dentist and when she found out I am using toothpaste with whiteners. She informed me that toothpaste with whiteners have acid which can actually weaken the enamel, it causes thinning and thus exposing my teeth to more harm.

Your gum tissue health is also very important, without it, you could be headed for trouble.  Try a portable oral irrigator or when not travelling, consider the hydrofloss.

Save yourself from embarrassment, use the best products for your oral cavity.  Not everything that tastes right is right for you, you have to research and find out what’s safe and effective.
