Hydrogen peroxide for oral hygiene, how to use it
L'oral hygiene is very important both for having a cleaner smile and avoiding tooth problems (cavities, plaques) but also for having better smelling breath. Remember that cyclically the toothbrush must be changed.
Beyond brushing teeth
In addition to brushing, using mouthwash and flossing, not everyone knows that valuable help comes from a disinfectant that you almost always have in your home: thehydrogen peroxide.
Of this, in fact, is known to be typically used precisely as a disinfectant of infections from small wounds, cuts, burns and skin excoriations.
In addition to having disinfectant power, it can be used as a bleaching and sterilizing agent, even in household cleaning.
But, on the recommendation of one's dentist or doctor, it can also be used to whiten teeth and clean wounds in the oral cavity.
For this very reason, hydrogen peroxide is present in many toothpastes, e.g.
You can find solutions on the market in which the hydrogen peroxide is already properly diluted (precisely to avoid mistakes) or 10 ml of the product (that is, about half a capful of the 300 ml solution) will suffice to be held in the mouth and spit out after one minute.
The hydrogen peroxide in this case will be used to remove debris and plaque on the tongue or to relieve healing wounds in the oral cavity (in fact, hydrogen peroxide should not be used for daily cleaning).
Obviously, the solution should not be ingested: because although the ingestion of small amounts of hydrogen peroxide is most likely not dangerous, care must be taken not to ingest it in large concentrations.
For its disinfectant effect, hydrogen peroxide is also suitable against bacteria, bacterial spores, viruses and yeasts and is also useful in recent times "against" Coronavirus to disinfect the mucous membranes of the oropharynx (but also of the nose).
To proceed with rinses, it will be necessary to dilute one part hydrogen peroxide with two parts water.
