Mum Shares: Cleene CLIO Makes Clean Teeth Possible For Families This World Oral Health Day 2022

Maintaining a good oral hygiene has never been more important than when the pandemic breaks. Since a visit to a dental clinic is not a priority, we needed to care for our teeth even more while at home. This is why it is a must that we instill a good oral hygiene to our children who are prone to cavities.

A good oral hygiene is a vital part of a person’s health and over-all well-being. Studies show that poor dental habits often lead to diseases, including high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease, and even cancer. This is why I keep on teaching my little man to develop a good oral hygiene by brushing at least twice a day and making sure to brush his teeth before going to bed. I am also on the look out for a kid-friendly mouthwash for him to use. And, since pandemic alert levels have relaxed since and children are allowed to go out now, I immediately booked Jared for a dental appointment. His very first since the pandemic broke.

Developing good oral habits early on in life is crucial for every child, as the good health of their milk teeth will pave the way for healthy permanent teeth. It is both challenging and frustrating as teaching our little ones good oral habits can really be quite tricky. My little man, for instance, would have a number of alibis before going to the bathroom to brush his teeth, and now that we have established a regular routine, the trick lies in making sure he cleans his chompers thoroughly and completely so we can prevent toothaches and tooth decay.

Recent survey shows that 9 out of 10 Grade 1 public school students aged 6 years old in the Philippines have cavities and that our country is far behind other Western Pacific Region countries in terms of oral health. The 2 most commn oral health problems plaguing us are dental caries and periodontal diseases, which can be avoided by improving oral health conditions among pre-school children and inculcating a positive oral health behavior to children entering school age. It would also prove to be helpful if we rely on reputable dental clinics like Comprehensive Family Dental for all our dental concerns. 

Oral Care Myths Busted!

Before going through the tips that would help us care for our pearly whites better let us first bust a number oral care myths.

Myth #1: It is best to rinse with a non-alcoholic based mouthwash immediately after brushing.

Busted: Fluoride in your toothpaste will be washed away if you do that it is best to allow 30 minutes to pass before rinsing with a mouthwash. It is true, though, that you should use a non-alcoholic based mouthwash. It is also recommended to rinse with a mouthwash before brushing to soften plaque and loosed particles between teeth.

Myth #2: The acidity of your food or drink must be considered before brushing your teeth.

Busted: Because of the acidic nature of the food you ate or juice/cola you drink, the outermost portion of the tooth is porous during this time and immediate brushing can cause enamel abrasions exposing the dentin causing tooth sensitivity.

Myth 3: Tooth stains are only caused by external factors.

Busted: There are 2 kinds of  tooth stains ~ intrinsic and extrinsic. The extrinsic stains are those that appear on the surface of the teeth as a result of exposure to dark-colored beverages, foods and tobacco, and routine wear and tear. Superficial intrinsic stains, on the other hand, are minor and can be removed with brushing and prophylactic dental cleaning. Stubborn intrinsic stains can be removed with more involved efforts, like teeth bleaching. Persistent extrinsic stains can penetrate into the dentin and become ingrained if they are not dealt with early. Intrinsic stains are those that form on the interior of teeth. Intrinsic stains result from trauma, aging, exposure to minerals {like tetracycline} during tooth formation and/or excessive ingestion of fluoride.
