For most, brushing our teeth is a daily routine, to which we give little to no thought. However, maintaining oral hygiene is one of the most important steps to overall health and wellness. Proper oral hygiene supports overall immunity and prevents a variety of life-long conditions and diseases. Like many other projects, the tools we use to clean our teeth and gums are as important as the act itself. Many Americans do not realize that the ingredients and quality of their oral hygiene products can make a significant difference when evaluating results. There are many different types of brushes, flosses and rinses on the market, but which ones are really best for you and your family?
While browsing through the toothpaste aisle at your local pharmacy or grocery store, you may be overwhelmed with options. Several brands advertise their whitening effects, while others feature their ability to fight plaque, tartar and prevent against enamel decay. Other products are marketed towards pediatrics, but are they really the best products for your children? Which active ingredients should we look for and why? Additionally, which products are best for those with sensitive teeth and gums? Many dentists highly recommend toothpastes which contain fluoride, as this is a primary ingredient to fight tooth decay.
