We all know it can be overwhelming at times to when it comes to choosing an oral hygiene product. With so many different options to choose from, it’s easy to get lost in the sea of products. That is why our team is here to help you learn how to choose an oral hygiene product that is right for you.
The first step in finding a successful product is to look for the American Dental Association’s Seal of Acceptance. This is important because it shows that the product has been researched and tested for safety and effectiveness.
When it comes to choosing a toothbrush, powered toothbrushes have awesome cleaning power with a motor that can rotate around your tooth as you brush your teeth and gums. Manual toothbrushes are more traditional but if used properly can still clean your teeth properly. No matter what kind of toothbrush you use, both will give you a proper cleaning if you use them correctly.
Toothpaste is another product people struggle to choose. After you find a brand with the ADA’s Seal of Acceptance, look to see if it fights cavities and cleans the teeth. There are toothpastes on the market today that are strictly for whitening your teeth, not for cleaning them. So, when picking toothpaste, it is recommended to choose one that fights and prevents cavities as well as whitens your teeth. The whitening toothpaste alone will whiten your teeth, but it will not kill the plaque and bacteria in your mouth. With toothpaste that cleans and whitens, you will give yourself a cleaner and fresher smile.
