Brush twice a day.  We should brush our teeth after every meal, but with our busy schedule, it becomes impossible.  So, it is important to brush after waking up in the morning and before going to bed at night.

The amount of toothpaste should be very small.  Teeth are an essential part of our body.  We need to be constantly aware of dental protection.  And family members should also be made aware.

History of National Dentist’s Day

Dentistry as a profession is ancient.  Around the 1700s, dentists became widely recognized as professionals.  Even before that, however, Hippocrates and Aristotle wrote about dentistry and emphasized the treatment of tooth decay.  In 1530, a book on dentistry called ‘The Little Medicinal Book for all Kinds Diseases and Informities of the Teeth’ was published.

 A French surgeon, Pierre Fauchard, was declared the father of modern dentistry in 1724. In 1840, the first dental college Baltimore College of Dental Surgery was established.  Dr. Rafiuddin Ahmed is called the Father of Modern Dentistry in India. In India, the Indian Dental Association (Indian Dental Association) represents dentists

This special day is observed to honor the experts associated with dental care.  This day honors the work of dental surgeons, orthodontists, periodontists, pediatric dentists, prosthodontists, dental assistants, dental technicians, and dental therapists.  Although there is no specific history behind this day.

Why we should celebrate National Dentist’s Day

National Dentist’s Day is observed to raise awareness about dental care and to honor dentists. Good oral health is linked to not only physical health but mental health as well.  It applies to all ages—from children to the elderly.  Studies have shown that mouth and teeth are related to various mental problems. Dental caries or cavities are a very familiar problem in children.  Favorite foods of school-going children like ice cream, chocolate, soft drinks,

 Artificial juices, potato chips, fast food, etc. cause cavities.  If this problem is not treated, it eventually affects the pulp of the tooth.  Then the pain starts.  Later the root of the tooth swells, and the tooth breaks.  Children with good oral health have a normal interest in learning, self-confidence, and memory.  Normal growth of the body and adequate nutrition, vitality, and mental cheerfulness. Malnutrition, aversion to school, inattention in studies, etc. occur due to difficulty in eating with diseased teeth.

If the baby’s baby teeth don’t erupt early or late, there is a risk of misalignment of the permanent teeth.  Then mental suffering starts from the lack of beauty.  Laughter and speech are one of the most important effective means of protecting our mental health, one of the tools of personality expression.  And for this, you need healthy and clean teeth.

Anyone of any age can suffer from uneven and discolored teeth.  Some of the causes of discolored teeth are improper tooth brushing, smoking, drinking, rust, trauma, tooth decay, and side effects of medications.

 Dementia, on the other hand, is a syndrome characterized by loss of memory, thinking, behavior, and ability to perform normal daily activities.  Failure to protect teeth due to carelessness or neglect can lead to dementia.  Proper chewing supplies enough blood to the brain, thus keeping the brain fresh.  On the other hand, a toothless face spoils beauty.  Long-term gum disease and bad breath. Because of this many times, it harms the patients.

 There is no substitute for proper facial care to maintain the health and beauty of the face.  Regular and regular mouth cleaning habits can prevent most diseases.  So National Dentist’s Day should be observed.

How to celebrate National Dentist’s Day

The day is observed worldwide to raise public awareness and honor dentists.  Dentists ensure the protection of our teeth.  We consult dentists for any dental problem.  Hence National Dentist’s Day is celebrated to honor them.  And nowadays people are careless about dental care.  So many people are suffering from dental disease.  Teeth are essential part of our body.  So National Dentist’s Day is also observed to raise awareness about dental care.


Various seminars are organized by dentists on National Dentist’s Day.  And there is also information about dental care and prevention of dental diseases.

Teeth Test

On National Dentist’s Day everyone examines their teeth.  The teeth should be examined after a few days.  If there is any dental disease, it can be cured in a short period of time if it is caught early.

Free treatment

Free dental treatment and consultation services are provided.  Many of us are not aware of dental care.  As a result, we are quickly affected by dental disease.  O National Dentist’s Day, various hospitals provide free dental care

Causes of tooth decay

Many people may not know, due to daily mistakes, precious teeth are lost prematurely.  people spend thousands of rupees to save a tooth due to not following simple rules to prevent tooth loss.  I would like to highlight the importance of proper dental care by correcting certain mistakes in dental care.

Brushing too hard and too long:

 If you brush your teeth for too long, the enamel, the hard coating on these teeth, wears away.  In a few days, the teeth will tingle with too much cold water or hot water, and will not be able to eat anything.  Because of this, the teeth will move away from the gums.  As a result, the teeth should be cleaned slowly from top to bottom with a soft brush in the market

Eating more acidic foods every day:

 Foods like soda, orange juice, sports drinks, candy, and oranges contain acids.  Just like an ice cube left in water melts and disappears in a moment, our tooth enamel is also eroded by such acidic foods.  Water or cheesy food should not be consumed with these foods.  The pH level of saliva in the mouth will decrease and tooth decay will start.  If a straw can be used while drinking orange or pineapple juice, there is some protection.  It is best to gargle and brush your teeth after consuming such fruit juice.

Attempting to over-whiten teeth:

 With age, the color of teeth changes.  Teeth are no longer white.  But if excessive bleaching is done to whiten these teeth, the tooth enamel or coating is attacked by acid.  This causes the enamel coating to crack and become slightly hollow.  The teeth are tingled for this.

Cold drinks with hot food:

 Whenever we bite into an extra hot pizza, bagel, or any other hot food, we stretch the enamel that is the hard covering of our teeth.  At that moment, sip a cold drink, and the enamel cracks finer than a hair.  Eating suddenly hot, or suddenly cold causes the enamel to stretch or grow slightly and crack.  So the habit of eating cold food along with hot food should be abandoned.

Use of wrong toothpaste:

 Too harsh or harsh toothpaste should always be used for healthy teeth.  Many advertisements claim that toothpaste contains ingredients that can whiten your teeth overnight.  For those who are attracted by such advertisements and use such toothpaste, there is a risk of early decay of their teeth.  So it is better to always use fluoride toothpaste when using a toothpaste without being attracted by advertisements.

Bottle opener habit with teeth:

 Many people try to open bottle caps with their teeth to show their strength.  It often causes the teeth to break, crack and crack.  In addition to its medical complications, the cost increases later.  Reduces the life of teeth.

Not brushing and flossing regularly:

 It is necessary to brush your teeth for three to four minutes every day at least twice in the morning after breakfast and at night before going to bed.  It is good to use dental floss (a type of silk thread) to remove dirt and food particles from the gap between the teeth.  If you don’t have a toothbrush at work, keep a set of toothbrushes, paste, and floss just like you do at home.  Because many times breakfast or lunch or dinner has to be prepared in the office itself.

It is also important to make arrangements so that you can brush your teeth there.  But be sure to use dental floss before brushing, not after.  Not brushing and flossing regularly can easily lead to tooth cavities and further complications from pain and inflammation.  Teeth should be brushed and flossed at least twice a day.

How to take care of teeth

Young people often say they don’t have time to brush their teeth twice a day.  It can be seen that they are happy using mouthwash.  Not brushing regularly is the main cause of tartar or gum build-up. Another factor is eating junk food and drinking cold drinks.  Regular cold drinks tend to erode tooth enamel.  Eating sticky food or junk food also increases the risk of cavities many times.

Many people are leaning towards bleaching these days to get two-three shades whiter than the color of the teeth.  Those who regularly smoke or eat a lot of tea coffee, or pan-masala, often get stains on their teeth. Once the teeth are whitened by the doctor, they will not always be there.  It has an effect of six months to a year.

After that, you should go to the doctor again. In the case of children, it is necessary to teach them to take care of their teeth.  The habit of brushing regularly should be developed from childhood.  Cleanse every day after eating if necessary.  It removes the food stuck in the mouth

After reaching the age of 40, the teeth need to be taken care of a little more.  As long as there is no gum disease, enamel does not erode.  However, after 40-45 years, tooth sensitivity increases as enamel decay accelerates.  You can use sensitive toothpaste as a way to get rid of it.  Must brush twice a day.  Brush with sensitive toothpaste once in between.

Many people think that changing the toothpaste may damage the teeth.  This idea is not correct, you can change the toothpaste if necessary.  Just make sure your toothpaste has the right amount of fluoride.

 The color of many people’s teeth often turns yellow.  This is because the enamel, which is responsible for the white color of the teeth, continues to erode.

 However, dental problems are not the same for everyone.  The tooth and jaw setting also depends on how much enamel loss will occur or not at all.  This is exactly why many people have tooth decay from a very young age.  Many do not even in old age.

Many of us think that the harder you brush, the cleaner your teeth will be.  But now, brushing normally for two minutes is enough.  Brushing too hard often leads to erosion of the junction between the teeth and the gums.  Places that become sensitive.  And the cavity also accommodates easily.

 A gum infection that is more common with age is pyorrhea.  This is called gingivitis in medical terms.  Tartar accumulates on the teeth and the gums become loose.  Teeth move a little when tartar is removed.  But it is possible to harden gums with care over time.  Scaling is a great way to treat gingivitis.

 No matter how many mouthwashes there are in the market, the best for teeth is to rinse with a mixture of salt and lukewarm water.  Keep your teeth clean regularly, and follow a healthy lifestyle for healthy teeth.
