Tips for Oral Hygiene with Good Oral Care Products

Choosing the Best Toothpaste and Toothbrush for Good Oral Hygiene

Do you take your oral care products for granted? When was the last time you really thought about your toothpaste or mouthwash? If it has been a while, it may be time to make sure you are using the right products.

Brushing your teeth is about more than getting rid of bits of food. Proper oral care will help your teeth, your gums and your overall good health by removing damaging bacteria. So, what do you really need in a toothpaste? Most people need to use a product that contains fluoride and that fights plaque and tartar. However, you can also find whitening products as well as pastes that protect and strengthen overly sensitive teeth. Of course, you will also find a full range of flavors; while mint is the most popular, Marvis offers exotic flavor variations like ginger-mint and jasmine.

The other half of the brushing equation is your toothbrush. Make sure you are using the right size brush for your mouth – it should comfortably fit to brush the front and backs of your back-most teeth. Brushes also are rated from extra soft to hard or firm; most people should use a soft brush for everyday brushing. It is important to brush your tongue as well as your teeth; alternately, you can use a tongue cleaner on your tongue each day.

Good oral hygiene doesn’t end with brushing, however. Flossing is critical for getting to those tight spots between teeth, where food can hide and cause bacteria to form. A good floss will slide comfortably between your teeth, allowing you to dislodge any buildup. A mouthwash or rinse can also help your oral health. While most mouthwashes are designed to freshen breath, many also kill bacteria and some can strengthen or whiten teeth as well. Look for one that leaves your mouth feeling fresh and energized.

Spend a few minutes today to ensure you are using the best products for your oral care. It may seem like a small thing, but it can have a big impact on your health.

Comments about Marvis Jasmine Mint Toothpaste, 75ml/3.86oz:
I purchased this for the 1st time while on vacation in France and have been hooked ever since .When I brush, I feel as though I'm in a fresh lavender field back in France. Flavor is not too strong( like most grocery store brands) but leaves your mouth feeling fresh with a lingering mint flavor, its good for sensitive teeth or gums, the flavor tastes like freshly picked mint and lavender and the quality is divine. I prefer it over Tom's of Maine mainly due to the fresh flavor and it keeps breath fresh longer than Tom's. This toothpaste is truly for those that have discerning taste. It's heavenly...not something one would normally say about toothpaste ! The only reason I gave it 4 stars is due to the price.

There is nothing better than this UV toothbrush sanitizer. It takes absolutely zero effort to use. Just brush your teeth, put it in the case and watch it go to work. The next day, your toothbrush will be as clean as new.

CLEAN! By Helen from Huntington Beach, CA on 03/15/2013
Comments about Zadro UV Toothbrush Disinfectant Scanner, Model No. TOOB1 - Blue:
This is a truly underestimated product, not sure why more people don't have one. Our mouths are are one of the germiest places in our bodies, and who really knows what's on our toothbrushes when not in use. Seriously recommend.

Comments about Whiter Image Chic Flic ToGo Teeth Whitening Pen & Lip Shine Plumper, 4ml/0.14 Whitening Gel + 4ml/0.14 Lip Shine Plumper:
I like the concept, but I wish the manufacturer would also use the design for other than teeth whitening. I would purchase the lip plumper/ lip gloss with the design of the LED light and mirror alone or different shades of gloss. Hope I can see this product in stores soon.
