One thing to keep in mind when taking care of our dental health is the deep hygiene of our mouth. Brushing your gums is just as important as brushing your teeth.
It is normal for brushing the gums to cause some bleeding. This is because plaque has been stored in them and they become inflamed and tender. Thanks to this process of brushing the gums, little by little, they will be deflated to the point where they will stop bleeding when you brush your teeth.
What type of brush to use?
Manual and electric, both are considered valid brushes for the hygiene of teeth and implants. Each of them has different characteristics to maintain dental hygiene. It is true that electric brushes achieve greater results since they are capable of removing bacterial plaque from the most difficult areas that cannot be achieved with a traditional brush. Those that use an oscillating-rotational movement have been scientifically proven to be the most effective. The main advantage of these electric brushes is that they allow optimal dental hygiene with less effort. Its use is especially indicated for patients with dental implants, braces, and those who suffer from periodontal disease.
What is recommended for the hardness of the bristles is a soft or medium brush. Both the manual brushes and the head of the electric brushes must be changed approximately every three months.
