Do you ever get overwhelmed in the oral hygiene aisle at the store because you don’t know which products are best for your smile? If so, our Atkinson Family Dentistry team is more than happy to help make shopping a bit easier! If you want the best and most successful smile possible, it’s best to purchase the following products while you’re at the store:
-Toothbrush: It’s best to buy a soft-bristled toothbrush. It’s also important to pick a brush that is easy to use. For many, the best brush to use is one with a one-inch head and a non-slip grip. When trying to decide between a manual or electric toothbrush, your preference is all that matters.
-Toothpaste: For strong and healthy teeth, it’s best to buy fluoride toothpaste. Fluoride can strengthen and nourish your teeth on a regular basis, preventing tooth decay and other major dental issues. Feel free to choose a flavor you enjoy.
-Floss: You can purchase a flossing product of your choice. However, many find that waxed floss is the best and easiest to use. This product easily slides between the teeth without injuring the gums.
-Mouthwash: Mouthwash completes the smile-cleaning job and improves your oral health. However, that’s only the case if you use beneficial mouthwash. So, it’s best to purchase fluoride or antibacterial mouthwash.
-Whitening products: If you want a bright and brilliant smile, you might want to consider whitening your teeth with an over-the-counter whitening product. There are many whitening treatments available, but it’s important to talk to your dentist before purchasing one so you know which treatment is best for your smile.
