Dental Hygiene Products That Will Truly Help Your Mouth

October 12, 2018

Your dental hygienist does a great job of keeping your teeth and gums healthy and clean during each visit to the dentist. However, there is nothing like knowing you take those lessons home with you to put a smile on her face.

Science is bringing us innovative new products all the time. There are so many dental hygiene products on the market it is sometimes hard to know which to choose. If you want to keep your teeth and gums healthy in between appointments, here are some great products to keep your smile fresh.

Electric Toothbrushes

The future of oral health and hygiene lies in technology and innovation. As every dental hygienist knows, the manual toothbrush doesn’t do a very effective job of cleaning your teeth. The electric toothbrush has proven to be irreplaceable in forging the fight against cavities and gum disease.

Since every patient has different needs, providing education is a key factor in helping to maintain oral hygiene practices. However, sometimes you need other tools and support. Today electric toothbrushes offer innovatively designed systems that track and map your oral hygiene habits. These high-tech systems collect and provide real-time data to recommend optimal cleaning schedules that will help you optimize your dental hygiene.


Flossing is another practice that at least equals the importance of tooth brushing. Though multiple types of thread floss are available, we now have innovative flossing systems that use either air or water to increase effectiveness.

The air flosser is a great help to those who have difficulty flossing with traditional floss and the Waterpik system helps those who are struggling with bleeding gums to ward off gum disease.

Natural Toothpaste

Coconut oil toothpaste is a new product available to replace generic brand toothpaste. Highly recommended by your dental hygienist, this all-natural toothpaste is fluoride- and gluten-free, making it safe for both children and adults.

Anti-plaque Mouthwash

Mouthwash isn’t just for bad breath. Using a Chlorhexidine Gluconate (anti-microbial) rinse product can actual improve your dental health. Scientific studies show that these anti-microbial rinses inhibit the growth of plaque and help prevent gum disease.
