Summary of Yasamin Kolahan interview with Forbes Media, Ways to keep your teeth healthy
1- This dentist advises his patients to use dental floss before brushing to remove plaque between the teeth. This will remove the toothbrush, bacteria and debris from the mouth.(Yasamin Kolahan)
2 – This specialist believes that especially for children, it is better to use floss after brushing. This helps to remove particles that remain in the mouth after brushing.
If you use floss first, the toothbrush may cause the debris to sink into the gums. (Yasamin Kolahan)
The dentist also recommends that the correct method of flossing be very important.
To do this, twist the floss C and rotate it around the tooth. Threading up and down the floss alone is not enough because it does not clean the surface of the teeth well.
3- This dentist believes that the order of using the toothbrush and floss does not make a difference, because the toothbrush cleans the surface of the teeth and the floss between the teeth.
4- The expert (Yasamin Kolahan) says that the most important thing is to brush twice a day and floss once. The dentist believes that you should spend a few minutes flossing to remove plaque and debris from your teeth.
It takes 24 to 48 hours for bacteria to settle in the plaque, so flossing at least once a day ensures oral health.
5- (Yasamin Kolahan) The opinion of this Iranian dentist is to use floss at night before going to bed. During sleep, saliva secretion is reduced to clean teeth and gums, and bacteria have a better chance of damaging their teeth.
Therefore, it is necessary to use a toothbrush and floss as well as clean the tongue every night before going to bed.
Both flossing and brushing are essential, according to the American Dental Association, but flossing before brushing helps keep fluoride in toothpaste from penetrating the teeth better, reducing the risk of tooth decay.
According to dentists, daily flossing is necessary to prevent the accumulation of bacteria between the teeth and the formation of plaque and sediment, resulting in swelling and inflammation of the gums, which is the first step in gum disease.
