Did you know your daily dental routine is vital for an amazing autumn smile? Well, it’s true! Oral hygiene is very important so your smile can last all year long! In order to have the best dental care, you need the best dental care tools. Dr. Mai X. Ly and our dental professionals would like to help you make sure you have the best oral hygiene tools possible by listing the recommended toothbrush, toothpaste, and floss you should use in your daily dental routine.
When it comes to selecting the right toothbrush, you should purchase a soft-bristled toothbrush. These soft bristles thoroughly scrub the tooth enamel while not harshly irritating the gums. You don’t want your gums to be irritated or your enamel weakened, right? Be sure to brush with a soft-bristled toothbrush each time you clean your teeth.
Choosing the right toothpaste is already hard enough when you go to the store and see hundreds of different options, but when selecting a toothpaste, make sure it contains fluoride. This natural mineral nourishes and strengthens the tooth enamel, so if you don’t use fluoride toothpaste, your chances of suffering dental issues (like enamel erosion and cavities) increase.
Select your favorite flossing product when purchasing this tool that cleans between the teeth. This is recommended because your favorite flossing product is often easier to use. Avoid getting frustrated when you floss, just try out different types until you find the one that suits you best. Our dental team encourages you to use products approved by the American Dental Association, because every dental hygiene tool you use should be approved by the ADA since they test their products for effectiveness and safety.
