The basis of oral hygiene is regular brushing of teeth – we recommend brushing them twice a day for 2 minutes. You should also go to a dental check-up once every six months. Moreover:
  • use toothbrushes safe for enamel, i.e. manual with soft bristles, sonic or electric,
  • also clean the interdental spaces with, for example, an irrigator, because they are difficult to reach with an ordinary toothbrush,
  • use a toothpaste with fluoride, which will help you protect your teeth against decay and strengthen the enamel,
  • regularly clean the tongue of accumulated sediment,
  • try not to eat after brushing your teeth in the evening.
Control visits to the office should be carried out once every 6 months, if you do not have any problems on a daily basis. However, if you experience pain or discomfort in your mouth – teeth, gums, muscles or joints, you should see your dentist right away.
You don’t need to be particularly prepared. All you have to do is complete the health questionnaire and clean your teeth thoroughly before meeting the dentist in the office. More information on the first visit and document templates can be found here: first visit.

We recommend that you bring your child around 2-3 years of age to the first oral checkup. However, such an inspection should be preceded by a special adaptation visit. At the Twój Uśmiech Dental Center, we have a unique approach to children – we have prepared the entire process of familiarizing children with the dentist. You will find all information on this subject in Guide For Parents.

So if you experience sudden pain while drinking cold drinks or eating ice cream, and it lasts as long as your teeth are in contact with the stimulus, you are probably struggling with tooth sensitivity. You should then visit a dentist who will check the condition of your teeth and select the appropriate method of treating your ailments.
