Do you want a stunning autumn smile? Then you need to keep up on your daily oral hygiene. This is only effective if you have the proper dental care tools. Whether you believe it or not, there are tools that can perform badly in doing a great cleaning job, sometimes even harming your smile. Please use the best oral hygiene tools possible by talking to our dentist, Dr. Jeffrey Lopes, and see what recommendations our dental professionals have for you.

One of the first tools we will recommend is brushing with a soft-bristled toothbrush. The soft bristles thoroughly clean your teeth and also care for your gum tissues. You should also purchase a brush with a non-slip grip because it can help you keep a firm hold on your brush, which can help you perform the best brushing technique possible.

Your dentist also recommends brushing with fluoride toothpaste. Fluoride is a mineral found in many natural resources such as your local water system (fluoride supplements have been added to water systems since the 1950s to help prevent cavities). It strengthens and nourishes your teeth, preventing dental issues such as enamel erosion and tooth decay.

We also recommend flossing with a flossing product that is most comfortable for you and your smile. It doesn’t necessarily matter which flossing tool you use to clean between your teeth as long as the floss has been approved by the American Dental Association. With the right floss, you should be on the right track toward a clean smile. Every oral hygiene tool involved in your routine should be approved by the ADA, because they test for safeness and whether the product actually works.
