Tooth Loss and Gum DiseaseGum disease is the most common reason for tooth loss. Gum disease can never be reversed but it can be halted or prevented by changing how you brush and clean your teeth.
Its important to choose a toothbrush that you will actually pick up and use.The bristles need to be medium, not too firm and not too soft. The brush head needs to be the correct size for your mouth to enable you to brush right to the back of your mouth.Dentists recommend brushing in a circular motion and using a light touch. Brushing teeth with a heavy hand can cause gum erosion.Make sure to clean in between your teeth with some dental floss or interdental brushes.Using a salt toothpaste can help in the battle against gum disease. It takes a week or two to get used to the taste of a salt based toothpaste, however, we can recommend mixing it with your regular toothpaste and reducing the amount of your regular paste, every couple of days until you are left with just the salt paste.Its worth persevering as the salt really does clean your mouth effectively and leave your gums feeling fresh and healthy.We would recommend brushing your teeth twice daily or more if you have had particularly sticky food or fizzy drinks.
It is recommended to change your toothbrush every three months or before if the bristles start to splay.If you are using a plastic toothbrush, that is 4 toothbrushes a year going into landfill. 4 toothbrushes that will still be in the landfill in 200 years.
Bamboo toothbrushUsing a biodegradable toothbrush is an eco-friendly alternative to a plastic toothbrush.We love Bamboo toothbrushes. Bamboo is quick growing so is a sustainable source of wood.Our range of bamboo brushes is proving to be popular. Charcoal infused bristles will help remove stains and protect against bad breath. When you are finished with the brush, snap off the handle and it can be composted, used in the garden as a plant support or name marker or repurposed for use as a small scrubbing brush until the bristles are no longer usable.
Children's teeth.Bamboo toothbrushes have a nice balance and are easy to use when you have to clean your children's teeth. For children, the bristles will be soft and a small brush head to fit around their growing mouths.It is recommended that parents clean their children's teeth until around age seven.This is easiest done if you sit with your child on your lap and their head is resting on your shoulder. You can easily reach around their whole mouth with their toothbrush.They can finish the job or start it but you are responsible for getting all of the surfaces completely clean for them.Childrens natural toothpasteIt is important to choose toothpaste that your child will be happy to use. Some kinds of toothpaste have questionable ingredients and you need to be concerned with what you will be putting into the mouths of your family.Conventional toothpaste generally contains fluoride and many contain artificial sweeteners. Many people are wanting to move away from conventional toothpaste or move to fluoride free toothpaste because they already have fluoride in their water supply.We stock several kinds of toothpaste made from all natural ingredients.
