Three Myths About Caring for Your Teeth


Three myths about caring for your teethMyth number one: you can not clean your teeth, because even “the wolf does not brush his teeth and eats a mare.”

Of course, there is an effect of the natural self-cleaning of the teeth when we eat an apple or a carrot. But in any case, the foods that we eat, there are carbohydrates, acids, tannins, not to mention the meat, the protein whose structure is an ideal breeding ground for microorganisms. Microorganisms and their metabolic products form a plaque on the teeth, which demineralize and soften the hard tissue of the tooth, causing tooth decay.

Incidentally, the biggest misconception that animals are no cavities. And, paradoxically, the closer the animal to human habitation, the more it looks like our diet, the higher the probability of caries. Mice and rats that live beside us, it appears, too, suffer from tooth decay! Therefore, brush our teeth, if possible, after each main meal. But here emerges
