Myths And Facts About Dental Care

Myth 1: Scaling Is Not Good For Teeth Fact: Scaling removes tartar and keeps teeth and gums healthy. Scaling and deep cleaning of gums prevent the problem of bad breath and bleeding gums. So, scaling is good for teeth and gums. One must get professional cleaning done by a dentist with a proper ultrasonic scaler. Also, getting extensive scaling (more than necessary) done is harmful.

Myth 2: Only Sugar Causes Cavities Fact: Cavities occur when bacteria produce acids in the mouth. The process can start by any carbohydrate which you consume. That includes sugar, fruits, vegetables, rice and bread. To decrease chances of tooth decay, one should not only practice good dental care but also limit the intake of acidic products.

Myth 3: Teeth Whitening Is Dangerous As It Damage Enamel Fact: Technique like Zoom Whitening works by exfoliating stains from one's teeth to lighten them and bring back their natural color. It is the simple and safe procedure as a product is used by dentists that is devoid of bleaching agents and chemicals.

Myth 4: Brushing Your Bleeding Gums Is Bad Habit

Fact: Brushing is not only good on teeth, but also on your gums and tongue. Brushing these areas helps get rid of plaque which causes inflammation and eventually gum disease. One should not brush so hard if they have sensitive gums. One must not use a hard toothbrush on bleeding gums.

Myth 5: Using Sugarless Chewing Gum After Meal Can Replace Brushing

Fact: Nothing can replace proper brushing technique. And in case you want to use sugarless chewing gum do not chew it for more than 10 minutes.
