Dental Products Recommended by Danville Dental
Keeping your smile healthy requires using the very best products -- but it can be difficult to choose when there are so many options for toothpaste, mouthwash, and the like. To help, we offer the following list of our recommended products. You’ll find handy links to help make purchasing easy for each one!
Act Anticavity Fluoride Mouthwash
Mouthwash is a great way to get an extra boost of bacteria prevention. Choosing an alcohol-free blend like Act will remove that burning feeling and protect your soft oral tissues. Plus, fluoride helps you fight cavities and sensitivity by strengthening the tooth enamel.
Biotene Dry Mouth Mouthwash Oral Rinse
Dry mouth leads to bad breath and also increases your risk of developing a number of oral health problems, from cavities to gum disease. Biotene Dry Mouth Mouthwash is alcohol free and can provide up to 4 hours of relief from dry mouth. Plus, its minty flavor leaves your breath smelling fresh!
Closys Alcohol Free Mouthwash with Flavor Control
Another alcohol free option for mouthwash is available from Closys. We recommend this to patients who want to use an oral rinse but can’t stand the typical strong flavors or colors associated with most. Flavor control is easier to tolerate for many. This product is excellent for controlling bad breath.
Fresh & Go Tongue Freshener
Your tongue can harbor a whole host of bacteria that leaves you with bad breath and also increases your risk of developing cavities and gum disease. Removing bacteria throughout the day with the Fresh & Go Tongue Freshener can keep your smile cleaner and healthier.
Oral-B Complete Satin Dental Floss Mint, 50m, Twin pack
Routine flossing (once a day at least) is a crucial aspect of every oral hygiene routine. This particular type of dental floss is satiny-smooth, meaning it won’t fray and get caught between the tight spaces in your mouth. Plus, the box it comes in has an anti-slip grip for easier handling.
Oral-B Pro 5000 SmartSeries Power Rechargeable Electric Toothbrush
Electric toothbrushes are a great way to achieve a better clean. With this bluetooth-enabled toothbrush from Oral-B, you can tap into stats on how often you’re cleaning, for how long, and other important data that can help you keep your teeth as clean as possible!
Oral-B Super Floss Mint Dental Floss Pre-Cut Strands
It’s easier to clean braces, bridges and wide gaps between teeth with pre-cut floss from Oral-B, which has a stiffened end and wider dimensions for thorough cleaning. Picking up a package of this stuff will help to ensure that you can keep your smile healthy even when it’s not possible to clean with regular dental floss.
Philips Sonicare FlexCare
Another excellent option for a powered toothbrush is with Philips Sonicare FlexCare, which delivers 31,000 brush strokes per minute and is proved to remove far more plaque than a manual toothbrush. It costs a bit more, but this is a great investment in your oral health!
Philips Sonicare for Kids
Who says your kids can’t enjoy all the benefits of an electric toothbrush, too? With the Philips Sonicare for Kids, they can. This option is bluetooth-enabled and integrated with an app to help get kids excited about brushing -- 98% of parents say they notice the difference! We do, too.
Patients who struggle to clean teeth with traditional floss, those who have an implant supported bridge or denture, and those who want to improve their flossing may all want to consider the Waterpik Waterflosser. Today, there are a number of different flossing tools available, but this is the original and still one of the best water flossers on the market. Water flossers allow patients to remove plaque and bacteria from even the most difficult to access spaces. They’re great for patients with bracket and wire braces too!
Phillips Sonicare AirFloss
Like the WaterPik, the Phillips Sonicare AirFloss tool can be used to remove plaque and bacteria from hard to access areas. Instead of a jet of water, the AirFloss tool uses air to clean between teeth, below the gum line, and around oral appliances like braces. They are small, cordless, less messy than water flossers, and easy to use for almost any patient.
If you or one of your children is receiving orthodontic treatment with bracket and wire braces, the Plackers Orthopik may be right for you. These flossers are specially crafted to fit between brackets and wires removing plaque buildup between teeth and at the gum line without the need for more complicated flossing tools. This product makes flossing with braces quick, easy, and effective!
