If you walk the aisles of any big box store or even local pharmacy, you will see a multitude of dental products available. It can be overwhelming to know which are the best dental brands and products for you and your family. Which are necessary and which are overrated? Here is a list of our favorites that we’d highly recommend for 2020.
Philips Sonicare Toothbrush
This rechargeable electric toothbrush is worth the investment and has so many benefits. It offers guided brushing which helps to make sure you cover all areas of your mouth and teeth for the proper amount of time. Its pressure sensor helps you to know when to handle certain areas with more sensitivity. The brushes are customizable with a variety of settings and brush heads to maximize your experience. Most of their brushes come with a convenient case for travel, and they even have a special App you can use to track your brushing!
Many of our patients tell us they have never felt their teeth so smooth and clean after brushing with the Philips Sonicare toothbrush for the first time!
GUM Dental Floss
We recommend this brand for dental floss for all our patients. They offer string floss for daily flossing, as well as many options for on-the-go care. They have flossers, dental soft picks and interdental brushes you can carry in your purse or glove-compartment to keep your teeth clean throughout the day.
Listerine Antibacterial Rinse
Listerine is an effective brand of mouthwash to use. They have several different flavors for your preference. And if you’d like to avoid dyes or artificial sweeteners for your family, Listerine Naturals is a fantastic option. Many of our patients use mouthwash twice a day after brushing, and even carry a travel-sized option at work to use after lunch.
GLO Teeth Whitening
In our Bedford dental practice, Dr White and her team use the GLO Science Pro Whitening System, developed by aesthetic dentist Dr. Jon Levine. GLO technology guarantees to produce the brightest smile in only about 30 minutes! “GLO” stands for “Guided Light Optic” technology, which utilizes LEDs and heat resisters to activate their patented whitening gel and help make your smile pearly white.
These dental products are meant to support you in your daily health habits. Taking care of your oral health is a key contributor to your overall health. Let us know if you have any questions about any other products you may have questions about, and we’d be happy to advise you.
