If you want a strong and healthy smile this fall season, there are certain things you need to do. One of those things is to have an effective and diligent oral hygiene routine. In order to do so, you need the right tools. So, to help you make sure you have the best oral hygiene tools possible, our dentist, Dr. Sukyoung Ahn, has some tips for you.

When it comes to choosing the right toothbrush, select one that has soft bristles. The soft bristles can deeply clean your teeth and also care for your gums. You should also choose a brush that has a non-slip grip. This can help you maintain a good grip on your brush and perform the best brushing routine possible.

When it comes to choosing the right toothpaste, select a paste that has fluoride. Fluoride is a natural mineral that strengthens and nourishes your teeth. This helps you prevent dental issues, like enamel erosion and cavities.

When it comes to choosing the right floss, your preference is all that matters. Just make sure you select an easy-to-use product that won’t make you frustrated when using it. It’s also best to choose dental floss that has been approved by the American Dental Association (every oral hygiene tool you use should have the ADA stamp of approval).

When it comes to choosing the right mouthwash, select a rinse that is antibacterial or fluoridated. These can help you prevent tooth decay, enamel erosion, and gum disease. If the rinse doesn’t have these characteristics, it’s probably just a cosmetic rinse.
