Dental care at home: Your own teeth deserve the best care
There is no substitute for your own teeth, and caring for them starts at home. Daily dental care is the foundation for healthy teeth and a radiant smile, even in old age. Discolouration, tartar and plaque buildup can be avoided through consistent and thorough dental care. Not only brushing your teeth is important, but also flossing and using mouthwashes to keep the entire oral cavity clean.
Choosing the right toothbrush plays a crucial role. Electric toothbrushes are often more effective than traditional manual toothbrushes, especially when it comes to reaching hard-to-reach areas. They are also a good option for people with limited hand mobility. Additionally, we recommend soft toothbrushes as they are gentle on the gums and enamel, effectively removing plaque without causing irritation or damage to your oral tissues.
We highly recommend using a toothpaste that contains fluoride. Fluoride is a natural mineral that helps to strengthen tooth enamel, making it more resistant to decay. A fluoride toothpaste also works to repair early stages of tooth decay and is an essential component for maintaining overall dental health
A Dry mouth is another problem that is more common with age. A dry mouth is not only unpleasant, but also a breeding ground for bacteria that can cause tooth decay and gum disease. Special mouthwashes or the ALPINE WHITE Gum Care Serum can help here and keep the oral mucosa moist.
Diet also plays an important role in dental care. Sugary and acidic foods should be avoided as they can attack tooth enamel and promote tooth decay. A balanced diet rich in vitamins and minerals not only supports general health, but also oral health.
