Keep your smile bright and your mouth healthy with our top oral care tips
You’ll see soft, medium and hard bristle toothbrushes but which one should you choose? For most people, a soft bristled brush is the safest choice. Depending on how vigorously you brush, a hard-bristled brush could actually damage the gums and protective tooth enamel. An electric toothbrush can help prevent harsh scrubbing by using a gentle circular motion. They can also make brushing easier for those with arthritis or other conditions that affect motor skills.
Different mouthwashes tackle different dental problems. Some help reduce plaque and prevent gingivitis; while others contain ﬂuoride to help ﬁght cavities and control or mask bad breath. If you have difficulty brushing and ﬂossing, a mouthwash may provide additional protection against cavities and gum disease.
Choose a toothpaste that contains ﬂuoride to strengthen tooth enamel and prevent tooth decay. Many toothpastes also have ingredients that ﬁght tooth sensitivity, gingivitis (early-stage gum disease), bad breath, or hardened plaque called tartar.
Tongue scrapers help rid of bacteria build up that causes bad breath, but your toothbrush can do the job just as well.
Flossing is a must for healthy teeth. Make sure you ﬂoss at least once a day to remove food particles trapped between teeth that your toothbrush misses.
If you have trouble using dental ﬂoss, interdental (between the teeth) cleaning aids can help remove plaque. These products include picks, sticks, and mini-brushes to get between and around teeth. Make sure you can gently get between your teeth and under your gum line with the product you choose.
If you’re a makeup lover, or even just someone who uses makeup sparingly, you’ll know the importance of washing your makeup tools...right?
