Conquer the Oral Hygiene Aisle

We’ve all been there, standing in the dental care aisle overwhelmed by the selection of items when you ask yourself, ‘Which one should I choose?!’ From manual to electric toothbrushes to special floss and even whitening trays, it’s easy to get lost on the ‘hype’ of a product rather than its actual effectiveness. Everyone is different, so it’s difficult to just say this product is the best. Most importantly, you need to find what works best for you, which may begin with a few mistakes, but will eventually be extremely beneficial to you and your family. When shopping keep three things in mind: Soft bristle toothbrush: Hard ones can slowly wear away your enamel Fluoride toothpaste: Will help control tooth decay (Fluoride soaks in and strengthens teeth) Floss, Floss, FLOSS!: Flossing gets between the teeth and gets what your toothbrush can’t! The choice of floss is yours-scented, unscented, waxed or not, the job is still the same. So the next time you go the grocery store, don’t panic! You can conquer the Oral Hygiene Aisle. If you have more questions about dental products, toothbrushes, floss, or your overall dental care, feel free to contact our Downtown Austin Tx Dental Office or our Lakeway Tx Dental Office. We offer a full range of dental services from general dental care to cosmetic dentistry and more!
