A young South African oral hygienist shares a surprisingly dental secret – and happens virally abroad

  • Ayubergen oral hygiene divides the surprise way of dentists to know if you see your teeth.
  • It turns out that your gums reveal a lot about your dental hygiene.
  • Her post in Quorra went viral and was picked up by one of the UK's largest media outlets.

A young Johannesburg oral hygiene shared the surprising way the dentists know that you do not care about your teeth, and revelation proved to be an instant hit with the international audience.

Boitumelo Koopedi, 27, recently published a note on the popular platform for questions and answers, Quora, explaining how to assess whether the mouth is healthy.

"Before they come for their two-year cleaning, some patients who do not properly wash their teeth properly, try to" hide "evidence of such by brushing their teeth three minutes before the scheduled or five to ten minutes before leaving their homes heading to the appointment. "

But, observing the state of their gums, it's clear to see who takes care of their teeth, she says.

Koopedi, who works in dental practice Roodepoort, shares two photos of her mouth as an example:


Unhealthy mouth

While at first glance the mouth with white teeth looks healthier, she says the red gums are a clear supply of problems.

"If you do not stop the formation of the poster for an extended period of time, it causes inflammation of the gums. During the inflammatory process of the affected areas of the tire, the blood moves to the places and causes the red color of the chewing gum."

"It's not easy to wash or clean gingivitis in a few hours," says Coopedi. Depending on how severe it may take several days to a few weeks before any visible symptoms disappear.

"So your teeth could spark like a mother's pearl, but your gums have all the stories about bad oral hygiene practices."

This mouth, even with yellower teeth, is healthier, says:

a healthy myth

Congratulations on your mouth

"If you correctly brush (and sway between your teeth) in a way to stop the formation of a plaque, your gums will have a light pink color at the crossroad where there is a gum and tooth, which is a good sign for health, no inflammation."

Her post became Quora viral, more than 350,000 times so far – and was also collected from the Daily Mail's massive website on Wednesday. The site reaches 100 million readers per month.

The article on her revelation was shared more than once by a story about the British royal on Wednesday.

Koopedi tells Business Insider South Africa that it is passionate about teeth health after it started working only in the area two years ago.

After enrolling in Lenassia, she worked at a bank. "But really, I really hated him." She decided to continue to learn, just knowing she wanted to work in the health sector.

Koopedi went through the prospectus at the University of Pretoria and was immediately trapped by dental medicine.

A colleague of dentists Roodepoort, where she works, says Koopedi is "absolutely excellent" in her work.

Tooth health is a very rare priority for South Africans, Coopedi told Business Insider. She would like to see more people thinking about their teeth as well as for the rest of their bodies.

She also wants to see more hair.

"You should do it once a day – get rid of that gingivitis between your teeth."
