Leading dentist Dr. Yaqoub Aleinzi is pursuing his passion of treating his patients and serving the Kuwait community where he grew up after training in Egypt. He is a major part of the Kuwait community.
Dr. Aleinzi keeps advising his patients on how to keep their gums and teeth healthy so that they never reach critical stages or get life-threatening diseases like oral cancer. The doctor says that one should place the toothbrush at a 45 degree angle to the gums while gently moving the brush back and forth in short tooth-wide strokes.
Each tooth cleaning should be finished with a few vertical strokes away from the gum. This motion sweeps the debris away from the gum. And one should use electric toothbrushes if they like it and are comfortable with it. There is no additional benefit they provide. It is all about the comfort of a person.
The doctor mentions that though regular cleaning will protect the teeth but still everyone should visit a dentist every 6 months so that if there are internal problems they can be identified at the first stage. The dentist will check the mouth thoroughly. Like any doctor, he does mention that people should stay away from unhealthy food especially people who are prone to gum problems. Sticky and sweet food should be avoided at all costs.
The mouthwash though advertised on a large scale for keeping mouth clean should not be used daily. It should be used by people who have gum diseases or if it is recommended by their doctors. One can lightly floss everyday without hurting the gums. Do not be hard as it will end up causing more problems than benefits.
