We’ve all seen the mottos brush your teeth twice daily and keep your mouth healthy, but how many of us really do that? If you are brushing the recommended twice daily, you may be unknowingly doing more harm than good to your teeth chart numbers with an old toothbrush. The American Dental Association recommends changing your toothbrush every three months or sooner if the bristles are frayed or misshapen, but most of us tend to brush with our toothbrushes until they no longer work properly.

Choosing The Right Toothbrush
Finding a toothbrush that works for you can be tough. Different sizes, different shapes and different bristle firmness all have an impact on how well your brush removes plaque, but it’s not always clear how exactly these differences impact performance. You may find that you need to experiment with a few brushes before finding one that feels comfortable and meets your needs. Regardless of which brush you choose, make sure to replace it every three months for best results.
Flossing Without Pain
If your teeth don’t touch or you’re missing teeth, flossing can be a little trickier. If you want to floss, you may have to work at it for a bit to figure out what works best for you. Is there a way to hold and use floss that reduces pain and is easier for you? You may have to experiment with different techniques until you find one that fits your needs.
The Anatomy Of A Tooth
The mouth is home to 32 teeth, which includes four incisors, two canines, eight premolars and six molars. The numbers in front of these names refer to each tooth’s position in your mouth. For example, a tooth in the upper right corner would be referred to as teeth number one, or the first upper right molar. Each tooth has its own job: Incisors are for biting and help you chew food; canines are for tearing through food; premolars grind up food; and molars grind it down (with help from your tongue) after it has been swallowed. It’s easy to see why having healthy teeth is so important.
But what does that mean exactly? To keep things simple, here’s a list of what’s normal and abnormal when it comes to your pearly whites: • Abnormal white spots on teeth—Teeth have enamel covering them with several layers underneath. An abnormality such as trauma or decay could cause those layers to separate revealing an underlying layer called dentin. When that happens, white spots may appear on your tooth’s surface. This isn’t necessarily something you need worry about unless they’re very large in size, but if they bother you, speak with your dentist about getting them fixed.
What Are Different Types Of Dentures
Dentures are an option for tooth replacement, but they’re not for everyone. Although dentures can be a practical and affordable solution for missing teeth, there are several different types of dentures to choose from and each type serves a specific purpose. The following is a brief overview of these different types of dentures: Partial Dentures: Partial dentures are removable appliances that are used to replace one or more missing teeth, depending on which tooth or teeth you have lost. The benefit of partial dentures is that you will still have your own natural teeth intact while getting help with chewing and speaking.
