Choose Your Toothpaste Carefully
Aside from visiting a Corona cosmetic dentist for regular cleanings, patients should also check out the toothpaste they use at home. The best way to figure out what’s right for you is to ask a dentist or dental hygienist for recommendations.
After consulting a dental professional, patients should find a toothpaste brand that addresses their specific oral-health needs. For example, if a patient suffers from excess tartar, toothpaste that features “tartar control” properties may be ideal. Also, make sure the toothpaste been awarded the American Dental Association’s (ADA) Seal of Acceptance.
In order for a product to receive the ADA’s Seal of Acceptance, it must meet ADA standards for effectiveness and safety. The marketing and packaging claims must also be scientifically supported.
The Seal of Acceptance indicates that the toothpaste is effective at combatting both bacteria and plaque buildup. The mouth is a breeding ground for bacteria and plaque due to its warm, moist environment. Plaque is sticky and thin, and deposits usually form hard tar if left untreated, which cannot be removed by brushing alone.
Fluoride is another key ingredient in toothpaste. This compound prevents cavities, and the ADA recommends using fluoride toothpaste paired with a fluoride mouth rinse for the best results. However, children who are 6 years old or younger should not use fluoride rinse.
Personal preference is also relevant when choosing the right toothpaste. Some patients have particular tastes. Paste or gel, spearmint or wintergreen—all work alike. If certain ingredients become irritating to the cheeks, teeth or lips, toothpaste for sensitive teeth could be a smart option.
Selecting the Right Toothbrush
The bristles of a toothbrush mean a lot when choosing the right brush design. Dentists generally recommend soft-bristle toothbrushes, especially for patients with sensitive gums or teeth. Cosmetic dentist Dr. Hauser recommends the Sonicare brand to most patients.
The head size of a toothbrush should also be taken into account. Try to find a head size that fits into the mouth easily and can brush two teeth simultaneously. Keeping this in mind, you should be sure to purchase a small-headed toothbrush for infants or young children.
Toothbrushes should be replaced at least every three months, or earlier if the bristles start to look frayed or worn down. Bristles that spread out are a sign that it is time to replace your toothbrush.
