Celebrating Oral Health Awareness Month with Our Top Recommended Dental Products

Celebrating Oral Health Awareness Month with Our Top Recommended Dental Products

May is Oral Health Awareness Month, and at Smile Moore Dental, we’re dedicated to helping you achieve and maintain your optimum oral health. This month, we’re spotlighting some of our favorite dental products that we trust and recommend to our patients. These products are selected based on their effectiveness and the positive impact they have on oral hygiene when used properly.

1. Philips Sonicare Toothbrush

Electric toothbrushes are a game changer in daily dental care, and the Philips Sonicare stands out for its exceptional plaque removal and gentle treatment of your gums. Its oscillating brush head reaches deep between teeth and along the gumline, making it a powerful tool against plaque and gingivitis.

2. CariFree CTx4 Treatment Rinse and Prescription Toothpaste

The CariFree CTx4 series features a unique combination of nano-hydroxyapatite for remineralization and a high fluoride content for maximum protection against tooth decay. These products are particularly beneficial for those at high risk for dental caries or those who have experienced decay in the past.

3. Pronamel by Sensodyne

Ideal for those with sensitive teeth, Pronamel helps strengthen tooth enamel and protects against the effects of acid erosion. It also helps to re-harden softened enamel, making it an excellent choice for anyone looking to preserve their tooth enamel against everyday acidic foods and drinks.

4. Flossing Options

  • Glide Floss: Perfect for those with tight contacts between teeth, Glide floss slides easily into tight spaces without shredding or snagging.
  • Waxed Floss: Offers a traditional flossing experience with an added wax coating to make flossing smoother and more effective.
  • Superfloss: Designed for patients with braces or bridges, Superfloss has stiffened end threads for easy insertion and a spongy middle section that cleans around appliances effectively.

5. Waterpik Water Flosser

As an adjunct to traditional flossing, the Waterpik Water Flosser uses a stream of pulsating water to clean between teeth and below the gumline. It’s an excellent addition for anyone, especially those with braces or fixed bridge work, providing an easy and effective way to clean those hard-to-reach areas.

Understanding Toothpaste Abrasiveness

Not all toothpastes are created equal, particularly when it comes to their abrasiveness. Some toothpastes can be too harsh, wearing down enamel over time. It’s important to choose a toothpaste that is effective yet gentle on your teeth. We’ve attached a chart below to help you understand the Relative Dentin Abrasivity (RDA) of common toothpastes on the market.

We hope this guide helps you make informed choices about the dental products you use daily. Remember, the right tools can make a significant difference in your oral health routine. If you have any questions or need personalized recommendations, please feel free to reach out to us or discuss these options during your next visit, or consult our recommended products on Amazon.

Let’s use this month to focus on enhancing our oral health routines and continue our journey towards optimum oral health!
