Did you know that it’s important to use the right dental care tools while you brush your teeth and clean your smile? Well, it’s true, and we are here to help you find the best tools that will help you have the strongest, cleanest, and healthiest smile! In order to have the best oral health possible, dentists today strongly recommend using the following instruments:
• Toothbrush: As you brush your teeth, use a soft-bristled toothbrush. Many believe that a hard-bristled brush cleans more effectively, but that is not true. A soft-bristled toothbrush successfully cleans your teeth and removes the plaque all without damaging your teeth or gums. This is a great option for both children and adults, especially those with sensitive teeth and gums!
• Toothpaste: If you want the best toothpaste for your smile, it is wise to talk to your dentist and ask for any pointers. For now, use toothpaste that has been approved by the American Dental Association and one that contains a healthy amount of fluoride. This way, your teeth will be nourished and cleaned in a safe and effective way!
• Mouthwash: Make sure to strengthen your oral cavity with mouthwash after you have brushed and flossed your teeth. As you do so, use bacteria-killing or fluoride mouthwash because it increases your chance of achieving and maintaining a beautiful and healthy smile. Please keep alcohol-based mouthwash out of the hands of children 6 years old or younger in the likely event that they will swallow it.
