Proper dental care is important to avoid dental problems – and the complications that can arise from them. Attending regular dental checkups is an important part of maintaining good oral health.
However, you also have to do your part to make sure your teeth, gums, and whole mouth are as healthy as possible. Dentistry at Dr. Mitzi Ezzat Dental Office can help you to learn more about dental hygiene products can help you understand the important role each of these products plays in your oral health.
Toothbrush – Your toothbrush needs to meet your specific oral health needs, which means that not all toothbrushes are suitable for brushing your teeth. The correct size of the toothbrush head is important.
Toothpaste – Choose a toothpaste that contains fluoride as one of the ingredients because the fluoride will protect your teeth from tooth decay and make tooth enamel healthier.
Dental floss – Dental floss is important for removing food debris or particles that may get stuck between the teeth and prevent the development of cavities and gum disease.
Mouthwash – Mouthwash can help achieve and maintain good oral health, but should not be used alone (without the aid of a toothbrush, toothpaste, and dental floss).
To find the right type of dental hygiene product, you may need to try several products before moving on to one that fully meets your needs. You can ask your dentist for advice on which products are best for your oral health to ensure that you do everything possible to keep your teeth, gums, and whole mouth as healthy as possible.
