Did you know your oral hygiene routine is important if you want a top-notch fall smile? Well, it’s true. In fact, oral hygiene is vital for a strong and healthy smile year-round! Now, in order to have the best oral hygiene routine, you need the best oral hygiene tools. Our dentist, Dr. Mark Andrews, would like to help you make sure you use the best oral hygiene tools possible by listing the recommended toothbrush, toothpaste, floss, and mouthwash you should use in your routine.

When it comes to choosing the right toothbrush, you should select a soft-bristled toothbrush. The soft bristles thoroughly scrub the tooth enamel while caring for the gums. This is important because you don’t want your gums to be irritated or your enamel weakened, right? So, make sure to brush with a soft-bristled toothbrush each time you clean your smile.

When it comes to choosing the right toothpaste, you should select fluoride toothpaste. Fluoride is a natural mineral that nourishes and strengthens the tooth enamel. So, if you use fluoride toothpaste, your chances of suffering dental issues (like enamel erosion and cavities) reduce.

When it comes to choosing the right floss, you should select your favorite flossing product. This is recommended because your favorite flossing product is oftentimes the easiest to use. It’s best to avoid getting frustrated when you floss, so our dental team encourages you to use your favorite product that has been approved by the American Dental Association. (Every oral hygiene tool you use should be approved by the ADA).

When it comes to choosing the right mouthwash, you should select antibacterial or fluoride mouthwash. These rinses can complete the smile-cleaning job and also help you prevent periodontal disease, enamel erosion, and cavities. So, make sure to rinse with a product like this daily.
