If you’re interested in keeping your smile in tip-top shape, then you need to keep up on oral hygiene. However, your hygiene routine is only effective if you have the right tools. So, to help you have the best oral hygiene routine possible, Dr. Jorge de la Osa and our dental team recommend purchasing certain oral hygiene items when you visit the store.

The first product you should buy is a toothbrush. It’s best to buy a soft-bristled toothbrush that has a smaller toothbrush head. The soft bristles can clean your chompers and care for your oral tissues. The small head will help you fit the brush in your mouth and in small places. It can also help you clean each tooth in your smile.

The second product you should buy is toothpaste. It’s best to buy fluoride toothpaste. This is because your teeth need fluoride exposure every day. The fluoride can strengthen your teeth and help them fight many dental issues.

The third product you should buy is floss. There are different types of floss, and each one can effectively clean your teeth and gums. So it’s best to try each type and see which flossing product you prefer. Then feel free to use that product daily to clean the crevices of your mouth.

The fourth product you should buy is mouthwash. It’s best to buy antibacterial or fluoride mouthwash. These two types can kill the harmful bacteria in your mouth and strengthen your teeth. They can also help you avoid plaque growth and tooth decay.

No matter which products you buy, make sure they have been approved by the American Dental Association. This Seal of Approval proves that the product is safe for your smile and effective in an oral hygiene routine.
