As you brush and clean your smile, it is important to use the best dental care products for your teeth, gums, and bones. But how do you know if you’re using the right tools? Well, we are happy to help you! First, we strongly recommend asking your dentist for advice. This way, your dentist will tell you the specific instruments you need to use to benefit your smile. Second, we suggest using dental care products that follow these guidelines:
• Toothbrush: As you brush your teeth, use a soft-bristled toothbrush. If you do so, the plaque will be cleaned off your teeth and your smile will be thoroughly cleaned. A soft-bristled toothbrush is also a great choice for children and adults as well as those with sensitive teeth and gums!
• Toothpaste: Generally, it is best to use fluoride toothpaste that has been approved by the ADA (American Dental Association). That way, you will know that your teeth will be cleaned and nourished in a safe and effective way.
• Mouthwash: After you brush and floss your teeth, it is wise to conclude the cleaning with a bacteria-killing or fluoride mouthwash. By doing so, your mouth will be strengthened and the risks associated with dental cavities and diseases will be decreased. Please remember that if you use an alcohol-based mouthwash, you need to keep it out of the hands of children 6 years old or younger in the likely event that they will swallow it.
