There are hundreds of dental products on the market today, many of which are toothbrushes and toothpastes. So how do you choose which one will best for your mouth? Well, that’s why we’re here! Our team is going to make your dental shopping experience an easy one with our three helpful tips.

1. Mouthwash serves many purposes

Mouthwash can be a great way to not only have fresh breath, but to also kill bacteria that can cause problems for your teeth and gums. There are several varieties of mouthwash on the market today. Bacteria-fighting rinse can be great to fight off gum disease or infection or rinses that contain fluoride can help in the prevention of tooth decay (cavities).

2. Toothpaste for ages

Our first tip is to give your dentist a call and ask what toothpaste they recommend for your teeth. If you are unable to contact your dentist, look for the ADA (American Dental Association) Seal of Acceptance. This means that the toothpaste has met the criteria for safety and effectiveness. When you are at the store, always choose toothpaste that contains fluoride. Fluoride is essential for preventing cavities.

3. Your perfect toothbrush

Most dentists recommend using a soft bristled toothbrush for adults and children. These soft bristles are effective at removing plaque and stains from your teeth, unlike hard or firm bristles. This type of toothbrush can be beneficial for 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.
