Be A Wise Dental Consumer

With the wide array of dental care products available, you may feel overwhelmed as you walk down the aisle of your drugstore or supermarket. Here are some tips to help you be a wise dental consume.

  • Talk to us about what types of oral care products will be most effective for you.

  • If you have sensitive teeth, we may suggest using special toothpaste.

  • Choose a toothbrush that feels comfortable in your hand and in your mouth, and use it twice a day.

  • Choose a child-sized toothbrush for children for ease of use.

  • Replace your toothbrush every three or four months, or sooner if the bristles become frayed. A worn toothbrush will not do a good job of cleaning your teeth. Children's toothbrushes often need replacing more frequently than adults because they can wear out sooner.

  • Oral irrigating devices use a stream of water to remove food particles around the teeth. They can be helpful for persons wearing braces or fixed or partial dentures. However, an oral irrigator is meant to enhance, not replace, regular brushing and flossing.

  • If you find that you are constantly using a breath freshener for bad breath, immediately visit or contact us. In some cases, bad breath may be sing of poor health.
