With lot of dental products prevailing in the market it is necessary to choose a product which is good and is not hard on your gums. Researchers carried out a study on the types of dental products in Pune use to prevent oral issues. The search says that a lot of people picked wrong products which leads to gum problems. Dentists in Pune say that soft bristled brushes are the best for removing the plaque and the food stuffs that stick in between your teeth. It also removes the debris stuck on your gum line. Small soft headed bristles not only handle your gums safely but also reach to all the parts and do deep cleaning.  A powered toothbrush is also a good alternative. The best tooth brush is the one which fits your mouth and reaches your teeth and cleans the gums without the hurting them. It is advised that you should change your tooth brush every three months or once the soft bristles begin to show wear. 

The wrong kind of toothbrush can cause injuries in adults as well as children.  For children it is advised to use toothbrush with nylon bristles which are softer and help in preventive care of the child’s gums. Powered toothbrushes available in the market are good in removing plaque from the teeth. Hence, it serves a perfect alternative for normal toothbrushes.

Flossing is an important practice for maintaining healthy gums.

If you find it difficult to floss with your fingers floss holders are also of great help.  Dentists in Pune say that it is more effective if you floss daily once before the bedtime as it will prevent the progress of microorganisms in your mouth and also prevents mouth decay. But if it’s not possible you can floss anytime as per your convenience.  Children also floss daily with the help of their parents.  Dentists in Pune also teach you the right method to floss as they are aware that most of the people are still not aware of flossing. It is necessary to floss properly as it might hurt the gums if not done properly.

Mouth wash and mouth rinse are two different products.  According to dentists in Pune anti-bacterial mouth wash is necessary for controlling plaque and also helps in freshening breathe.  While mouth rinse which contains fluoride helps you in preventing tooth decay and tooth cavities. Dentists in Pune say that many of the mouth washes contain alcohol ingredients or alcohol which is not good for children below the age of 5 years, so before buying a mouth wash for you or your children please read the label at the back side of the bottle. Hence, a good oral health regime will help you in preventing a lot of oral gum problems. Also basic hygiene will save a lot of expense as it is the preventive care.
