The 6 golden rules for good dental hygiene

The 6 golden rules for good dental hygiene - Sustainable Tomorrow

Dental hygiene is still often considered a chore. And yet, maintaining good oral hygiene is essential to maintaining good health in general. Discover the six golden rules to follow to maintain top dental hygiene and keep a beautiful smile for as long as possible!

Brush your teeth for 2 minutes, twice a day

Two minutes is the average brushing time recommended by dentists to keep your mouth and teeth healthy. Most of us only brush their teeth on average for 43 seconds, which is almost three times less than the official recommendation!

To help achieve these famous two minutes, some electric toothbrushes including our Zen and Junior models have a built-in timer, which allows you to extend brushing time.

Use a soft bristle brush head.

For brushing to be effective and pleasant, it is important to choose the type of bristles for your toothbrush. Brush heads with soft bristles are recommended to avoid overly aggressive brushing which could damage tooth enamel and cause bleeding gums.

And contrary to some preconceived ideas, soft bristles do not clean teeth less well, on the contrary they allow the spaces between each tooth to be better cleaned.

Change brush heads regularly

When was the last time you changed your toothbrush? If you don't know the answer to this question, you've come to the right place! Dentists recommend changing the brush head every 2 to 3 months, not only because of wear of the bristles but also because of the development of bacteria.

With the Sustainable tomorrow subscription, never forget to change your brush head or manual toothbrush again!

Visit your dentist regularly

More than 1 in 2 people admit to being afraid of going to the dentist. This phenomenon is called stomatophobia . In order to maintain good dental hygiene, it is necessary to visit your dentist regularly; 1 to 2 visits per year are sufficient for most people.

These visits are an opportunity to detect cavities and gum disease in order to avoid complications and other more serious dental problems later, which can be costly and painful. In case of emergency, you can also find the dentist on call closest to you.

Use dental floss and interdental brushes

Most people never use dental floss or interdental brushes. These two accessories help eliminate food residue stuck between your teeth and thus reduce dental plaque.

They also help protect against gingivitis, which is inflammation of the gums.

Promote a balanced diet

Eating well is essential for good health, and also affects oral health. An unbalanced diet, too rich in sugars, can encourage the development of dental plaque bacteria and produce acids which attack tooth enamel.

So, to preserve your dental hygiene, try to pay attention to what you eat and not overindulge in sweets (even if it's tempting!).

And you, what do you do to maintain good dental hygiene?

Bamboo Replacement Heads for Electric Toothbrush

Responsible Disposal and Plant-Based Bristles

Our commitment to sustainability extends beyond the product itself. To properly dispose of each replacement brush head, place it in a compost bin, where it will decompose in approximately six months. The plant-based bristles, made from castor seed oil, will eventually break down in a home composting environment, contributing to a greener planet.

While the replacement brush heads are crafted from raw bamboo, the toothbrush handle is made of plastic to comply with safety requirements.
