If you’re headed to the store for oral hygiene products, Dr. John Lee and our dental team would like to help you choose the best cleaning tools for your smile! In order to do so, we are happy to give you a smile-care/oral hygiene checklist.

The first product you should buy is a toothbrush. It’s best to buy a toothbrush that has soft bristles and a small head. The soft bristles can clean your pearly whites and also keep your gums in tip-top shape. The small head is beneficial because it can fit nicely in your mouth and it can help you clean each tooth in your smile.

The second product you should buy is toothpaste. It’s best to buy fluoride toothpaste because the fluoride can strengthen and nourish your teeth as well as help them fight tooth decay and enamel erosion.

The third product you should buy is floss. There are different types of floss, and it doesn’t matter which type you choose because each one can clean the crevices of your teeth. So, try the products you want to find out which one you prefer. Then feel free to use that product to clean between your chompers daily.

The fourth product you should buy is mouthwash. It’s best to buy antibacterial or fluoride mouthwash. These can wash away the harmful bacteria in your mouth as well as strengthen your teeth and help you avoid plaque growth and tooth decay.

It’s best to choose products that have been approved by the American Dental Association. This is because those products with the Seal of Approval are safe for your smile and effective in an oral hygiene routine.
