In Western culture, most people brush their teeth AFTER breakfast. In Asian culture, people brush BEFORE breakfast. Which is better?!
Brushing before breakfast is better.
The reasons for this are:
- Removal of plaque from your teeth is the main purpose of toothbrushing. Plaque turns sugars from your food into acid, which causes tooth decay. If you remove the plaque before, then there is much less acid production.
- Many people drink fruit juice in the morning. The acid from the juice will soften your enamel and then if you brush it your teeth while it is softened, there is much more wear of your teeth.
Temporary fillings are not designed to last a long time. However there is no clock inside it to tell it to break or fall out by a certain date.
Losing a tooth is not a pleasant experience and for most of us, we would like to have it replaced.
You probably already know what I'm going to say. No! That is the point of getting regular check ups with the dentist.
A crown usually requires 2 appointments and there is a temporary crown in place during this time. The temporary crown is designed to be removed with relative ease, so sometimes, it can fall off or break too early!
