What are the causes of oral flora imbalance?

What are the causes of oral flora imbalance? Many people will choose to use mouthwash to remove oral odor, and some patients with oral inflammation will also choose to use some mouthwash to eliminate inflammation. The doctor pointed out that when there is acute inflammation such as gingival abscess, severe periodontitis and oral ulcer in the mouth, the drug mouthwash can be used under the guidance of the doctor. This mouthwash cannot be purchased on the market, and the doctor will guide the patient to use it according to the patient's situation.

Oral flora imbalance due to misuse of mouthwash

Most mouthwashes sold on the market have certain bactericidal and anti-inflammatory effects, and there are normal flora in the mouth of healthy people. Experts especially emphasize that long-term purchase and use of mouthwashes with antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effects on the market will cause imbalance of normal flora in the mouth, so long-term use is not recommended. The best way to maintain the normal flora balance of the oral cavity and effectively clean the oral cavity is to mechanically remove plaque, such as brushing teeth, flossing, brushing between teeth, etc.

Children can brush their teeth with toothpaste in the size of soybean granules

Naughty children always like to squeeze a pile of toothpaste on their toothbrush. In this regard, experts pointed out that children should control the amount of toothpaste when brushing their teeth, and the amount of soybean grain size is enough for each brushing. Because the child's swallowing reflex function is not perfect, it is easy to swallow toothpaste by mistake, especially when using fluoride toothpaste, so as not to cause excessive intake of fluoride.

Childhood is a high-risk period of dental caries. In order to prevent dental caries, children over 3 years old should try to use fluoride toothpaste and brush their teeth with fluoride toothpaste every morning and evening. However, it should be noted that children under the age of 6 should use fluoride toothpaste under the supervision and guidance of their parents. Children should not use adult toothpaste with high fluoride content.

Because the child's swallowing reflex function is not perfect, and his hands-on ability is relatively weak, it is inevitable to swallow toothpaste containing more fluoride by mistake when brushing his teeth, resulting in the occurrence of dental fluorosis. Therefore, parents should urge children to brush their teeth without swallowing, take a slightly lowered posture, let bubbles, slobber and other natural outflow, after rinsing, rinse with water, spit the residue of oral cavity.

The doctor reminded the children that the correct way to brush their teeth is to brush vertically, and never use horizontal brushing. Because brushing teeth horizontally may cause damage to the soft tissue around the teeth, especially when the gums are mechanically stimulated by the horizontal brushing method, there may be damage, accompanied by gum bleeding and pain; Moreover, the long-term use of horizontal brushing can also shrink the gums, expose the root of the teeth, and then have symptoms such as tooth sensitivity.

In addition, the horizontal brushing method will also cause damage to the teeth. The most common is the wedge-shaped defect of the tooth neck. At least, there will be pain when brushing the teeth. When eating cold, hot, sour and sweet food, there will be allergic symptoms. Further aggravation, there will be symptoms of pulpal nerve inflammation, such as pain at night, pain when not eating, half facial pain and occlusal discomfort.
