Vietnam is one of the most populous countries in the world with more than 90% of the population. In particular, 75% of people have permanent decay, 50% of Vietnamese have never had dental exams.
According to many people, oral diseases are not serious. But it is a mistake, the disease is related to a series of other diseases in the body.
The oral health of Vietnamese people is mainly focused on diseases such as tooth decay, gum disease (gum disease), tooth inflammation. Up to 75% of the population suffers from permanent decay. Scientists from the Lion Group (Japan) in a study of oral health have revealed many of the causes of tooth decay, mainly:
Age: In older people, the amount of saliva is lower than the young, while the gum is also weaker, so the risk of tooth decay and tooth loss is higher than the young.
Incorrect brushing: Many people brush their teeth once a day or brush their teeth through the loudspeaker, so the areas inside the teeth do not clean the plaque.
Eating habits: Continuous snacking will increase the amount of acid that is harmful to your oral health several times higher than normal. Also, do not take proper oral care during pregnancy, take antibiotics too much and stress also causes tooth decay.
In common oral diseases, gingivitis is also recognized as a serious disease. Gingivitis due to plaque builds up on teeth and gums. If the plaque is not removed, it will produce toxins that stimulate the gum tissue, causing gingivitis. If untreated, gingivitis can lead to periodontal inflammation and cause permanent damage to the teeth and jaw.
In fact, gum disease has been shown to be closely related to many other diseases such as stroke, cardiovascular disease, preterm birth, and serious diabetes. According to oral experts from Japan, periodontal disease is one of a group of six diseases associated with diabetes. In people with a history of diabetes, if oral care is not good, blood glucose control is reduced by six times compared to other diabetic patients. Pregnant women with gingivitis are at 7 to 8 times more likely to have preterm birth or premature birth weight loss than pregnant women with healthy teeth and gums.
Studies in Japan have shown that healthy gums are an important foundation for healthy teeth. Therefore, gingivitis is also an important part of daily oral care, including:
Properly brush, properly and properly use dental care products.
Brush 3 times a day (about 3 minutes each) after breakfast, lunch and before bed. You need to brush the entire face: the front, the back, the chewing face; Move the brush a little bit and clean the plaque.
When brushing, you need to carefully comb the area between the teeth and gums - the "shelter" of the plaque with bacteria.
Choose a toothpaste that suits your needs: Research in Japan has proven that if you do not use toothpaste, must brush up to 30 times to clean up all plaque. In addition, the toothpaste is also suitable for clean white teeth, breath fresh.
However, experts recommend depending on the oral health of each person that choose the right type of toothpaste. People with plaque, stains on the teeth and issues of teeth tartar, drink coffee, tea ... so choose a toothpaste formula twice the plaque removal times calcium carbonate and aluminum oxide than conventional. . This helps prevent cavities and prevents plaque from returning. Lion's Zact toothpaste is one of the best products for bleaching stains on teeth for people who smoke, drink tea or coffee.
