¡Ú Brushing after each meal
There used to be a claim of 3-3-3 brushing. This means to brush your teeth for 3 minutes within 3 minutes after each of the 3 meals.
But out of 32 teeth in our upper and lower mouth, only one neglected tooth could lead to tooth decay and periodontal inflammation.
So these days dentists recommend that you brush each tooth thoroughly for, on average, in total 10 minutes.
Moreover proper brushing proved to be effective in prevention and treatment. As you can see, 3-3-3 is just not enough.
¡Ú Brushing in the morning
It is needless to say brushing is good only after the meal. Brushing is intended to eliminate food debris (dental plaque) and there is no point to brush your teeth before the meal. Most people brush their teeth in the morning, which is a matter of course.
¡Ú Brushing after lunch
workers and students find it difficult to brush after lunch.
As they usually eat out for lunch, they might take in the most adhesive food.
¡Ú Brushing at night
The irregular diet caused by overwork, night study, working late and so on, does harm our body.
It also undesirably affects our teeth.
The causes of tooth decay and periodontal diseases are extremely active at night.
Having one's meal regularly and a good night's sleep are essential for health but if they can not be kept well, prevention is needed.
No matter how late you come back home, brushing before going to sleep is the first condition for health.
So you shouldn't miss brushing !!
