Welcome! Its Teethlicious Tuesday, on this day we talk about the “Tooth”, and nothing but the “Tooth”.
Christmas season is in the air! I hope you can feel it and are excited as I am. We all know Christmas season is a time a lot of us let go of self discipline, chill, relax with family and friends, share gifts and we know most importantly lotsssss of food and drinks are consumed over the Christmas period, so it’s important to be teethliciously prepared for this season! Dr Oyaks brings to you the twelve days of Teethlicious Christmas, Read, Enjoy and Share!
On the 1st day of Christmas my true love sent to me, A tooth in my Oral cavity.
The best gift this Christmas season is to have your own natural teeth still present in your mouth. Ready to devour and savor all the upcoming delicacies. I believe the tooth is a precious gem like a diamond in our mouth. And this is a season to celebrate and be grateful for them. Read more on how to appreciate the diamonds our true love God sent to us.
On the 2nd day of Christmas my true love sent to me, Two sets of teeth.
Teeth are among the most distinctive (and long-lasting) features of mammal species. Humans, like other mammals, are diphyodont, meaning that they develop two sets of teeth.
Humans usually have 20 primary (deciduous, “baby” or “milk”) teeth and 32 permanent (adult) teeth. Among deciduous (primary) teeth, ten are found in the maxilla (upper jaw) and ten in the mandible (lower jaw), for a total of 20.
The permanent teeth are the second set of teeth formed Among permanent teeth, 16 are found in the maxilla and 16 in the mandible, for a total of 32.
What an amazing gift to have two sets of teeth, the first set and stage I usually call the forgiving stage. and a second stage where we upgrade our care and correct the mistakes made in the first stage or they are lost forever.
On the 3rd day of Christmas my true love sent to me, Three regular cleaning.
The three regular cleaning during this Christmas season stands for brush, floss & mouth wash. Oral hygiene is the practice of keeping the mouth clean and is a means of preventing dental caries, gingivitis, periodontal disease, bad breath, and other dental disorders. It consists of both professional and personal care.
- Brush for at least 2 minutes twice a day with fluoride toothpaste to remove dental plaque – the sticky film on your teeth that’s the main cause of tooth decay and inflammation of the gums, called gingivitis.
- Floss daily to remove plaque from between your teeth and under your gum line, before it can harden into tartar. Once tartar has formed, it can only be removed by a dental hygienist or dentists during a professional cleaning.
- By routinely using mouthwash, you can greatly improve your oral health. Read More on oral care products.
- Visit your dentist regularly for professional cleanings and checkups. At least twice in a year
In this month of December, on Tuesdays more will be revealed on the remaining gifts our true love sent to us. Stay tuned next week on #Teethlicious Tuesdays with DrOyaks.
Thanks for reading and spread the love. Jesus is the Reason for the Season!
