Spend Less Than 30 Minutes a Week to Protect Your Health

dca-blog_basic-dental-care-blue-man

Do you have 30 seconds to spare for your health? How about 2 minutes, twice a day? It’s an easy answer when you break it down—240 seconds a day is all it takes to enjoy a beautiful smile and health gums. However, millions of Americans are “too busy” for proper dental care. While there seems to be plenty of time for morning talk shows and evening sitcoms, many people don’t want to spend time thoroughly brushing their teeth twice a day, much less flossing. Your oral health is directly linked to the state of your total health, meaning those 4 minutes each day—28 minutes a week—could save your life.

Tooth brushing is your first line of defense against invading bacteria. Surely you have time to follow these dental care guidelines:

  • Brush a minimum of twice a day for two minutes. Divide the mouth into quadrants and spend at least 30 seconds brushing each quadrant on all sides. Don’t neglect the inside or chewing surfaces of any teeth.
  • Brush after every meal, if possible. But, wait at least 20 minutes following eating to prevent spreading acids around the mouth that cause tooth decay.
  • Don’t miss a brushing session. Studies have shown that missing even one tooth brushing session of the recommended two per day can increase your risk of chronic disease by as much 70 percent.
  • Select a toothbrush that properly fits your teeth. If you have large teeth, purchase a toothbrush with a fuller head, while those with smaller teeth may benefit from smaller toothbrush heads. Children should always use toothbrushes specially designed for kids. All toothbrushes should be ADA approved.
  • Choose only ADA-approved toothpaste. Look for toothpaste that includes fluoride and has the ADA seal of approval. Some children’s toothpastes may have low or no fluoride because amounts of fluoride exposure should be minimal up to the age of six to avoid tooth discolorations.
  • Floss daily. Strive to floss at least once a day before brushing. Whether you choose string floss or dental picks, removing debris from between teeth is essential to good dental care.
  • Use mouthwash after brushing. Adults and adolescents can remove excess bacteria and debris by rinsing with an ADA-approved fluoride mouthwash after every brushing. Ask your family dentist before allowing young children to use mouthwash.
  • Replace your toothbrush every three months or when the bristles become splayed, whichever comes first.
  • Consider using an electric toothbrush. Electric toothbrushes have been shown to deliver better cleaning results than manual toothbrushes.
