Explain the 8 major misunderstandings about washing teeth
Speaking of periodontal health, Dr. Ding Peng, an attending physician of the Department of Orthodontics, Peking University Stomatological Hospital, said that only by insisting on effective brushing and regularly going to the hospital to check the teeth, it is the guarantee for obtaining healthy periodontal, but at present, most people are cleaning teeth.There are still many misunderstandings in understanding.
“I brush my teeth every day, I don’t have periodontal disease, I don’t need to wash my teeth.
“If you brush your teeth, it will inevitably leave a dead end. If you have a long time, you will form tartar, especially those with irregular teeth, long-term smoking and tea.
Once the calculus is formed, it is easy to accumulate pathogenic bacteria and cause periodontal inflammation. Over time, it will affect the health of the teeth due to periodontal deterioration.
Therefore, it is best to wash the teeth once a year, and patients with periodontitis who are prone to tartar are best washed once every six months or even three months.
“Tooth cleaning will loosen the teeth.
“This situation is prone to occur in patients who have more calculus.”
In fact, loosening is not caused by washing the teeth themselves.
These patients had a severe periodontal disease, the alveolar bone had been absorbed, the periodontal fibers were destroyed, and the teeth had been loosened.
Due to the “plywood effect” of the calculus, temporary “support” is obtained, and the teeth are not felt loose.
After the calculus is “washed off”, the teeth become “isolated” and then re-emerged. In fact, the teeth are removed from the factors that cause the teeth to loosen. Next, the teeth should be further treated with periodontal treatment.
“After washing your teeth, your teeth will be painful.
“In general, there are two kinds of pain: one is the soreness during the cleaning process.
The calculus often accumulates in the gingival margin, the gums, and the dental complications are relatively weak, and the distance from the nerve is close, so it will feel sore when washing the teeth.
The other is that some people inside the healing of the teeth will feel the sensitivity of hot and cold stimuli.
Before the tartar is removed, the external stimuli are blocked. After the elimination, these sensitive factors directly stimulate the dental nerve through some channels on the tooth structure, and sensitive symptoms appear. However, the symptoms are temporary and will gradually become after a few days or a week or two.disappear.
“Tooth cleaning can damage your teeth.
“The ultrasonic cleaning head itself has no cutting function on the teeth, and the correct standard operation will not hurt the teeth.
However, if the operation is not proper, contraction and compression or staying in a part of the tooth for too long, slight scratches will occur.
After the teeth are cleaned, it is usually polished to add some fine rough surface, otherwise it is easy to pigment or deposit calculus.
“There will be a lot of blood in washing your teeth.
“In fact, the amount of bleeding is often reflected in the degree of inflammation. This situation is similar to brushing teeth. You can’t brush your teeth or wash your teeth because of bleeding. On the contrary, only careful brushing and cleaning can eliminate inflammation, eliminate control or eliminate bleeding.Relieve or disappear.
In addition, the water and saliva sprayed from the head of the cleaning machine during the cleaning of the teeth can also cause the illusion of bleeding.
“The teeth are getting bigger after the teeth are washed and the teeth are getting longer.
“The accumulation of tartar, the fusion of the gums will cause the local swelling of the gums to fill the gaps, remove the calculus after washing, the swelling and expansion of the teeth gradually disappear, the teeth become obvious, and the outline of the teeth is more obvious when the tongue is picked up.I feel that my teeth are getting longer.
“The process of washing teeth is easy to spread diseases.
“This topic is most often mentioned. In fact, as long as you go to a medical institution at a distance, choose a professional doctor, and the equipment is strictly disinfected, you can avoid infectious diseases.
“Tooth cleaning is to give teeth to the beauty.
“In fact, washing teeth is a popular saying. The terminology is called “Jiezhi”, not a simple beauty act, but a strict medical behavior. It is the basis for the treatment of periodontal disease. Only by choosing a professional person can youStandardize treatment, while also reducing discomfort during the process and avoiding cross-infection.
