Last night I had a nightmare that haunts me every few months when I dreamed my teeth were falling out. This idea scares me terribly, and the feeling I have in a dream is maintained even when I wake up.
Toothache is one of the nightmares of my life and that of a loved one going through it, so today I thought we'd talk about oral hygiene.
A few months ago I came to the conclusion that brushing and toothpaste (and occasionally flossing) they are not enough to remove all bacteria from the oral cavity and I felt the need for something more cleansing.
At the time, I didn't know that In the oral cavity we host over 400 species of bacteria Of which we can remove only a small part by brushing and flossing, but I felt it was not enough. Tongue piercing (this time you learn something new about me :)) always required more careful care, but still I felt the need for more.
In consultation with my mother and the dentist, I came to the conclusion that I need a complete oral care routine that includes three steps to maintaining oral health: brushing, flossing, and rinsing with mouthwash.
I have learned that mouthwash rinsing is very important and should not be missing from the oral hygiene routine because it acts on both the bacteria on the surface of the teeth and those in areas where the toothbrush and floss cannot reach.
Mother, the dentist and the Romanian Society of Dentistry recommend Listerine mouthwash to complete the daily care ritual of the oral cavity. Rinsing for 30 seconds with Listerine after brushing your teeth ensures the elimination of 99.9% between bacteria. due to its antiseptic action. It also maintains the balance of the flora of the oral cavity, prevents inflammation of the gums, reduces dental plaque by up to 56% more than a simple brushing and most importantly, it satisfies the need I told you about above. After rinsing with mouthwash, I feel like I got rid of that very unpleasant thing.
Listerine Stay White is my mother's favorite and the one I tried because it promises to reduce tartar formation, prevent tooth staining and keep them whiter, but if you are also sensitive to Chinese ointment I advise you to try Listerine Freshburst.
Although I like the Listerine Stay White effect, the aroma is too strong and I prefer the simpler version.
Now I use mouthwash after each brushing and I feel much better, even the earring feels clean due to its antiseptic properties. I can't believe it was that simple 🙂
Do you use mouthwash? What is your favorite product?
