What Should I Know When Shopping For Dental Products?
Always our first recommendation is to ask your dentist during your next dental checkup. Ask your dental professional for cleaning recommendations and product recommendation to ensure you purchase based off your individual needs and dental health.
Other common suggestions among dental professionals are to look for toothbrushes with soft bristles, since hard bristles could damage your teeth or gums. Be sure to choose a toothbrush head size that touches one or two teeth at a time, use a toothpaste containing fluoride approved by the ADA, consider using mouthwash and don’t; floss!
A good tool that we can’t forget is an electric toothbrush, as they are proven to improve oral health beyond what a manual toothbrush can do by removing extra plaque, reducing gingivitis and eliminating teeth stains. In addition they’ve also been shown to minimize the amount of plaque on the teeth of people with periodontal disease.
