Necessary, Helpful, Exceptional: Optimizing Your Dental Hygiene

Surely there must be a way to know just what you need for your dental hygiene, how to ramp things up a bit if you’re feeling like you could use a little more help, and then what to do when you’re just feeling like going over-the-top with some added luxury. Well, if you didn’t already guess, the easiest way to get all of this smile-protective information sorted out into neat categories is to talk with our Southlake, TX team! As you could probably already guess, we absolutely love talking about your smile and how to keep it healthy (while you actually enjoy the process). Ready for some helpful details? Check them out (and come in for a visit soon if you need a bit more guidance).

The Necessary Items

Let’s begin with the things you need, no matter what, so no matter where you are or what you’re up to, you are prepared to provide your smile with exactly what it needs from your dental hygiene. You will need the following:

  • A toothbrush. It has to have soft bristles! Not hard or medium ones.
  • Toothpaste that contains fluoride. Easy breezy.
  • Dental floss.

The Helpful Items

Our team knows that sometimes, while a brush, paste, and dental floss will get you through dental hygiene for life, you just want a little extra help. If that’s how you’re feeling, we can certainly help you with some product suggestions to make life just a little bit easier. Let’s talk about the details:

  • If you feel like you want a bit of extra freshness, feel free to use an antibacterial mouthwash in addition to the necessary products.
  • Try a water flosser if you feel like, even though you’re flossing, you could use some extra attention focused on your gums!

The Exceptional Products!

Beyond simply making sure you don’t end up with cavities and the requirement of fillings or other restorative care treatments, there are products that can make your dental hygiene time feel just a tad more luxurious. Consider trying an electric toothbrush instead of your manual one. You may also want to check out designer toothpastes in a variety of unusual flavors for an interesting sensory experience (just make sure they have fluoride!).
