Oral hygiene is vital for a strong oral health and a top-notch fall smile. However, there is a catch: You need to have the best oral hygiene tools to have the best oral hygiene routine. So, our dentist, Dr. Federico Lago, would like to help you make sure you’re using the best oral hygiene tools for your teeth and gums. To do so, he would like to list the recommended tools to use.
The first tool is a soft-bristled toothbrush. This might not sound like the best tool to use, especially because of the soft bristles, but it is. In fact, the soft bristles deeply clean your teeth and also care for the gums. This is important because if the gums are bothered, they shrivel away from the teeth, expose the roots, and cause tooth sensitivity.
The second tool is fluoride toothpaste. Fluoride is a natural mineral that can strengthen and nourish your tooth enamel. This can help you avoid enamel erosion and tooth decay. So, make sure you use fluoride toothpaste when you brush twice a day.
The third tool is your favorite flossing tool. This is recommended because your favorite flossing tool is oftentimes the easiest to use. Our dental team doesn’t want you to get frustrated while flossing, so we encourage you to use your favorite product. As long as it has been approved by the American Dental Association, you should be good to go! (Every oral hygiene tool you use should be approved by the ADA).
The fourth tool is antibacterial or fluoride mouthwash. These products can complete the smile-cleaning job and also help you prevent gum disease, enamel erosion, and tooth decay. So, make sure to rinse with a product like this daily.
