Think that silicone toothbrushes are very suitable for babies, so what are the advantages of silicone toothbrushes?
1. Massage the gums with a silicone toothbrush
Massaging the gums is an indispensable part of daily oral care. The bristle scraper of a silicone toothbrush has good softness, low wear, and strong adsorption does not hurt the gums and has no irritation such as thorns or pain on the gums. At the same time, it can massage the gums comfortably. Massaging the gums can thicken the epithelium of the gums, enhance the self-protection of the gums, make them less susceptible to damage from rough and hard food, help resist the invasion of foreign microorganisms, improve the blood circulation of the gums, and strengthen the gum tissue The nutrition and oxygen supply of gingival tissue makes the metabolism of gum tissue more vigorous, which plays an important role in the stability of teeth. Especially for patients with periodontal atrophy, gingival massage can prevent the periodontal atrophy from aggravating, which is beneficial to the stability of the teeth.
2. Application of silicone toothbrush in preventing periodontal disease
Bleeding gums, receding gums, and periodontitis are the most common periodontal diseases. When there is periodontal disease, the gums are edema, a large number of new blood vessels in the gums are congested and expanded, and the permeability is enhanced. Once the symptoms are aggravated by the stimulation of brushing or chewing, the gums will bleed. Those with periodontal disease can also use silicone toothbrushes. The bristles have a large cross-section and the tip of the bristles is arc-shaped. The bristles are soft and elastic. They can bend freely when brushing. They can not cause secondary damage to the gums and can achieve the role of normal oral care and cleaning.
3. Silicone toothbrush to remove plaque
Tooth brushing is the most effective way to remove plaque, prevent and control periodontal diseases, and is most easily accepted and mastered by people. Once a day in the morning and the evening, brush your teeth especially at the junction of your gums and teeth and between the two teeth where plaque is easy to adhere to. Plaque is an important factor causing dental caries and periodontal disease. Caries and periodontal disease are also known as dental plaque. The most reliable way to control plaque is to use a toothbrush and other auxiliary tools to remove it mechanically. Silicone toothbrushes have a high efficiency of scrubbing and decontamination. The experimental results show that silicone toothbrushes have a significant plaque removal rate. The plaque removal rate of the silicone toothbrush meets the design requirements and can play a role in oral health care. The plaque removal rate is affected by many factors. The length of brushing time, the use of toothpaste and other adjuvants, the difference between the upper and lower dentition, the pressure of brushing, etc., will all affect the plaque removal rate. If you increase the pressure and extend the brushing time promptly, the stain removal rate can be increased, but the silicone toothbrush will not cause the tooth surface to wear and increase the gum irritation. Therefore, brush your teeth in a timely and comfortable manner.
