Posted .

Many people keep up on oral hygiene but fail to use the best tools for their teeth and gums. This can result in tooth and gum injuries and even dental problems. It’s best if you use the best oral hygiene products to clean your smile each day. To help you know which products to choose while shopping the oral hygiene aisle at the store, our dentist, Dr. Grant Brough, encourages you to choose the following tools:

-A soft-bristled toothbrush: This type of toothbrush deeply cleans the teeth all while caring for your gums.

-Fluoride toothpaste: This type of toothpaste helps you clean your teeth and prevent cavities and enamel erosion. This is because the fluoride seeps into the tooth enamel and strengthens it, giving it the ability to fight the bacteria and acid that threaten it.

-Easy-to-use dental floss: This type of floss can help you properly clean your smile all without damaging the gums. So, use whichever product you prefer! It can be waxed dental floss, floss picks, floss threaders, water flossers and more.

-Antibacterial or fluoride mouthwash: Antibacterial mouthwash can help you have a clean mouth and prevent gingivitis, which is the first stage of gum disease. Fluoride mouthwash can help you have a clean mouth and help you prevent cavities and enamel erosion.
