Practical tips for proper oral hygiene

Neither does any toothpaste guarantee a minimum effectiveness

Regular brushing of the teeth and gums is the best known and most useful resource to minimize the risk of developing oral diseases, but it is not the only one and it is not always done in the most correct way.

Neither brushing faster nor harder or with more toothpaste is a benefit in oral care and, in fact, can cause an adverse effect.

Nor does any toothpaste guarantee a minimum effectiveness, so it is recommended to make a correct selection, based on scientific evidence and the advice of experts.

The Spanish Society of Periodontology (SEPA) has established five simple steps that, following them correctly, ensure the maintenance of correct gum health, thus avoiding the appearance of periodontal diseases as frequent and important as periodontitis.

At least 2 times a day (although always better 3):

Brush your gums and teeth with toothpaste.

Use dental floss or interdental brushes.

Strengthen your oral hygiene with a mouthwash.

Every 3 months:

Renew your toothbrush.

At least every six months:

Visit your trusted dentist / periodontist, check your gums and clean your mouth.
