A Dentist’s Secret to a Healthy Smile

We are often asked about what products we recommend. We thought we would compile a list of the products that we use on a daily basis.

Feel free to contact us should you have any further questions….we are always happy to help!

 

1.Oral B satin floss coated with fluoride

The tape will clean between the teeth. It is smooth and covered with fluoride. Fluoride will strengthen the enamel and combat dental decay that is developing between the teeth. It also tastes good!

2. Oral B electric tooth brush

We love electric toothbrushes! Look out for the following qualities: rotating, pulsating, round headed. All basic oral B brushes will have these qualities. We can guarantee that your teeth will feel cleaner immediately!

3. Black is white whitening toothpaste

Those of you who know us, know that w are avid coffee lovers – hence the Nespresso machine at our practice. This toothpaste consists of coal particles that absorb the staining without damaging the enamel. The only downside is that it is black and can look a bit messy in the bathroom! Definitely works though!

4. Fluoride toothpaste (not whitening)

Any toothpaste that contains fluoride is good as it will strengthen the enamel.

5. Dentibrushes

These can be described as rubbery tooth-picks. It can take a few attempts before you get the technique right with these ones, and they do tend to bend in the beginning. They are easy and quick once you get used to them. They are also perfect for cleaning underneath fixed retainers.

6. Fluoriguard mouthwash

Fluoride strengthens the enamel and prevents dental decay. Use mouthwash twice a day after brushing. Make sure that you do not eat/drink/rinse for one hour following use. It tastes good and is not too strong.
