Dental Products That Can Boost Your Oral Health

Do you want to improve your oral health? Here are some dental products that may be able to help:

Electric Toothbrush

You can maintain a healthy smile with a regular toothbrush, but many patients find their oral health improves when they use an electric one. There’s less work involved, which makes it great for everyone, especially children, patients with arthritis, and those with other special needs. Many electric toothbrushes have a built-in timer that helps you brush for a full two minutes and get each quadrant of your mouth. Be sure to avoid knock-offs when you switch out the brush head every few months because they can have inferior bristles.

Interdental Tools

Do you have trouble using regular floss for any reason? Interdental tools like picks and sticks are very useful for cleaning between your teeth. They’re especially helpful if you have braces.

Alcohol-Free Mouthwash

While mouthwash isn’t a replacement for brushing and flossing, it can reduce your risk for cavities and gum disease when added to your normal routine. Mouthwash can also give your mouth a nice, clean feeling.

Tongue Scraper

If you struggle with bad breath and have ruled out issues like gum disease and tooth decay, a tongue scraper can remove smelly bacteria. Or you can simply brush your tongue with your toothbrush.
