If you want a top-notch smile and oral health, then you need to keep up on oral hygiene. However, the only way your oral hygiene routine is effective is if you use the proper oral hygiene tools and techniques. Our dentist, Dr. Matt Hall, would like to help you choose the best tools while you’re searching the oral hygiene aisle at the store. It’s best to choose these 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 have strong and healthy teeth. This is because the fluoride dives into the tooth enamel and strengthens it, giving it the ability to fight bacteria and acid. This can help you prevent cavities and enamel erosion.

-Easy-to-use dental floss: This type of dental floss can help you clean your teeth and gums all without damaging the smile. You can use whichever tool you prefer, like waxed floss, flossing picks, floss threaders and more.

-Antibacterial or fluoride mouthwash: Antibacterial mouthwash kills bacteria in the mouth and helps you prevent gum disease, and fluoride mouthwash strengthens the teeth to help you prevent cavities.
