Rinse aid for the mouth: balm, elixir, powder
Teeth need to be cleaned very carefullytwice a day - this simple truth is known to all of us since childhood, and many believe that this concern for the oral cavity, teeth and gums can safely end. But, of course, everything is not so simple, because the teeth are daily exposed to a variety of dangers - starting with a relatively harmless plaque, ending with a dangerous disease called caries and mechanical damage.
It can be concluded that only onecleaning teeth is not enough unless combined with toothpaste does not use mouthwash that can strengthen the enamel of the teeth, prevent damage and bleeding gums, and also have antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effects, destroying bacteria and protecting vulnerable mucous membranes. Another plus of using such means - giving freshness to breathing - is an important advantage, but it is not remembered often, among the main ones referring to the above properties. Nevertheless, the mouthwash is able to clean and wash the tongue, the "contamination" of which is the cause of the unpleasant odor.
To date, many manufacturersoffer us to purchase our varieties and types of rinsers, which are recommended to use with the appropriate toothpaste. There are several types of such products - balsams, elixirs and dry powder preparations.
The former are the most common andpopular, they are divided into anti-inflammatory (mostly with natural components) and anticaries (containing fluoride and calcium ions). Among the best balms are the products of the company "Sensitive", such products as "Colgate" rinse, which qualitatively strengthen the enamel of the teeth, improve the mineralization, very often act, reducing the increased sensitivity of the gums and enamel. When using similar balms, it is worth remembering that they should be applied after cleaning the teeth, since only in this case the elements of calcium and fluorine contained in them can be fixed and start their useful work. In addition, the balm should contact the surface of the teeth within two to three minutes, which is also necessary for the assimilation of all necessary elements.
The second type of means for cleaning the cavitymouth - elixirs for gums with anti-inflammatory effect. They are able to have a beneficial effect on the microflora of the mucous membranes and their blood supply, heal small wounds on the gums and disinfect them. Unlike balsam, the elixir mouthwash should be applied before hygienic cleaning of the teeth, since this product makes the plaque on the enamel of the teeth soft, easily removable with a brush. In most cases, the composition of elixirs includes natural ingredients, plant phytoncides which strengthen the gums and make them healthier, able to withstand minor mechanical damage and bacteria. The maximum effect, according to experts, renders such a tool as mouthwash "Forest Balsam", but natural preparations "Spring-plus", "Veterok" or "Lesnoi" are just as effective.
Dry powders for cleaningoral cavity, appeared on the Russian market relatively recently, but already won their adherents. Such drugs must be diluted in a small amount of boiled water just prior to use before consumption, and they have the greatest effect in the most neglected cases - if necessary, decontamination and healing of purulent diseases. Specialists note that for the prevention of diseases because of its concentration and the content of certain elements, this mouthwash should not be used for the oral cavity.
