The Essentials for Healthy Teeth

Your toothbrush, toothpaste, floss and mouthwash are all considered essentials for healthy and strong teeth. But which product for each of these essentials is considered the best? Our team is going to help by giving you some helpful tips next time you’re at the store so you can find the perfect toothbrush for your teeth.

Choosing a toothbrush isn’t an easy task, especially when there are so many to choose from! From manual brushes to electric/battery-operated toothbrushes, it can be daunting.

If you’re going manual, find a toothbrush that is soft-bristled. These soft bristles are effective at removing plaque and stains from your teeth, unlike hard or firm bristles. This type of toothbrush can be also be beneficial to individuals who have sensitive teeth. Choose a toothbrush that also has a head size that would easily fit in your mouth and can touch one or two of your teeth at a time.

If you choose to go another route, powered toothbrushes can make the job of cleaning your teeth a little easier to do. These brushes can also improve your oral health and amount of staining to your teeth. When you choose your powered toothbrush, make sure you change the head of the brush every 3 months to ensure reliability.

Keep your teeth looking sharp by brushing twice a day with fluoride toothpaste and flossing daily. To schedule an appointment with our dentist, please give us a call today at 347-868-6546.
