There are habits in life that we learned as children. Maybe our parents or our educators taught them to us. For example, what time of day do you brush your teeth? It is most likely the wrong one. Here’s everything you need to know.
Body hygiene is always important. The oral one is even more so. Wash correctly and frequently i teeth, in fact, it is not just a question of aesthetic decorum. But it’s also a health issue.
In fact, poor oral hygiene can cause quite a few problems. From caries to much more serious problems. For this reason, therefore, it is also correct to use dental floss, to prevent food and residues from remaining between one tooth and another.

We’ve always thought it was essential and healthy to brush your teeth immediately after eating. This is only partially true.

Because it is true that After meals, teeth should be brushedto prevent food and residues from settling in our mouth. But you don’t have to do it right away. Right after eating is wrong. Indeed, we have to wait at least thirty minutes after the end of the mealbecause as soon as you finish eating, the ph of our mouth is more acid and, therefore, combined with toothpaste, can increase the risks ofdental erosion.
