Teeth Whitening Products – Starts With Thorough Oral Hygiene

September 10, 2008 by admin 

Teeth whitening products are a huge industry. Gum, toothpaste, mouthwash and whitening strips have helped launch the dental industry into the billionaire market. But not all teeth whitening kits are the same. As well, not all homeopathic remedies are safe and it pays to know the difference before attempting any whitening product designed to brighten teeth. A good knowledge of basic oral hygiene is the true answer before embarking on putting a bleaching gel into your mouth. Once you have the basics down, you can proceed with more complicated procedures.

The first rule of thumb for anyone, should be to “know thy mouth” and know that what you put into it will affect your appearance. The first step to having a nicer smile is to have good oral hygiene. Brushing your teeth should not be optional. It should be done at least twice a day with a good firm toothbrush, to not only clean the teeth, but to stimulate the gums as well. Also use a toothpaste that fights gingivitis and plaque. And don’t forget to floss. Everyone has lied to their dental hygienist once or twice when he or she was asked if flossing occurs regularly. Most people do not floss on a regular basis, but remember, a toothbrush only gets so far between your teeth.

Teeth whitening products help remove some of the daily stain that is the primary cause of tooth discoloration. Most people do not consider what goes into their mouths. Tobacco, coffee, tea and soda all stain the enamel. You can always use the white cloth test to determine if a food or drink will discolor your teeth. Put some of the substance on a white cloth. If it colors the cloth a brown or tan, then you will know, without a doubt, that the same thing is going to happen to your teeth.

Once you know your mouth, you can begin the process of having whiter teeth. Start the process with good oral hygiene and follow it up with tooth whitening products that are easy to use. Skip the complicated trays and a whitening gel until you develop a routine. Simple toothpaste that contains a whitening agent is a great way to lighten your teeth by one or two shades. You can always try other methods later once you have a healthy mouth.

There is a need for some common sense before trying a homeopathic remedy for whitening your teeth. Do not use undiluted bleach. Do not leave whitening strips in your mouth overnight in case you swallow one. Do a little bit of research on teeth whitening products before they go into your mouth. Brush your teeth and floss regularly. Try cutting back on tobacco use or drinking staining beverages. A little common sense goes a long way.
