Emergency Dentistry: Emergency dental care is typically needed to address mouth trauma and broken teeth, along with loosened or broken fillings. You might get your tooth popped out either by an accident involving the face or getting a blow to your mouth. If that happens, act quickly & within 30 minutes visit your nearest dental office. Handle your tooth carefully and pick it up by the crown and never touch the root. If it’s dirty then gently rinse it with milk or water. Don’t scrub or dry or use any soap or chemicals or wrap it in any cloth. You should try to gently place the tooth back in its socket but not press it; if you can’t place it back then should keep it moist until you reach the dental office. Place it in your mouth ideally next to your cheek or place it in a cup in which you have collected your saliva or milk or you can also dip it in a contact lens solution or in an emergency kit such as ‘save-a-tooth’. Avoid using regular tap water. If it’s a baby tooth then you shou…

Brushing Routine

Image
For #brushing choose a soft bristle #toothbrush, as it can effectively remove #plaque and debris from gums and between teeth. Hard bristle #toothbrush can erode your tooth #enamel.

#Replace your toothbrush regularly after every three to four months or when the #bristles get frayed and lose their shape.

Remember to always use fluoridated toothpaste as it not only helps remove plaque but also strengthens the tooth enamel. Your toothpaste should contain at least 1400ppm fluoride content.

Flossing your teeth is also important as it removes food particles that get #trapped in between your teeth.

While brushing your teeth use a pea size amount of #toothpaste as applying a lot can tempt you to spit and finish early.

You should brush your teeth gently in short circular motion with 45 degree angle at gum line. You must never brush across your teeth as you can irritate your gums. If you have any doubts
