Dental & Technological Advances

Dental hygiene products are advertised on the television and in magazines. Everything from teeth whitening solutions, to self-propelling toothbrushes can be purchased. While many of these products do prove useful and beneficial to the health of your teeth and gums, there are others that can be avoided.

Dozens of studies have been conducted on the right or wrong way to brush your teeth. Do you brush left to right or north to south? Does it really matter? The newest fad is battery-powered brushes that clean in a circular motion. This method is thought to deliver a more thorough clean while preventing added plaque and gum disease.

Choosing the Right Dental Hygiene Products

Have you ever tried to walk down the tooth paste isle just looking for basic tooth paste. It's nearly impossible. From whitening paste, mouthwash inspired paste and even now, flavored paste sponsored by Emeril LaGasse. How are consumers supposed to know which dental hygiene products to use?

If you are feeling overwhelmed by the selection of products at the store, rely on an expert. Your dentist can tell you what products will work best for you and your mouth. If you follow the basic guidelines of brushing, flossing and rinsing, you can't go wrong.
