In order for your oral hygiene routine to be effective, you need to have effective oral hygiene tools. To help you know which tools to use while you clean your smile, Dr. Robert Morrison and our dental team have a smile-care shopping list you can take to the store.

The first product you should buy is a toothbrush. It’s best to buy a toothbrush that has soft bristles because the bristles can clean your teeth and care for your gums.

The second product you should buy is toothpaste. It’s recommended to buy toothpaste that has fluoride. This is because your teeth need fluoride exposure daily. The fluoride can nourish your teeth and help them fight cavities and tooth sensitivity.

The third product you should buy is floss. There are different kinds of floss and each one can effectively clean your smile. All you need to do is find out which flossing product you prefer and then use it once every day.

The fourth product you should buy is mouthwash. It’s best to buy mouthwash that is antibacterial as well as has fluoride. This mouthwash can kill the bacteria in your mouth and strengthen your teeth so you can avoid plaque growth and tooth decay.

An additional tip we have for you is to choose products that have been approved by the American Dental Association. These products are recommended because they have been proven to be safe for your smile as well as effective in an oral hygiene routine.
