How should I choose oral care products?
Even savvy shoppers can be
baffled by the seemingly endless variety of dental care products.
Choose products that carry the American Dental Association Seal
of Acceptance — an important symbol of a dental product's
safety and effectiveness. Oral care products that may carry the
ADA Seal include:
manual and electric toothbrushes
other interdental cleaning aids
mouthrinses and oral irrigators
How often should I replace my toothbrush?
Treat yourself to a new toothbrush every three to four months,
or sooner if the bristles become worn, splayed or frayed. A hard,
brittle brush can injure your gums. Children's brushes may need
to be replaced more often, as they can wear them out more quickly.
it matter what kind of toothbrush I use?
Yes. Choosing the right toothbrush
can help prevent damage to your teeth and gums. Use an ADA-accepted
toothbrush that has polished bristles, as they are less likely
to injure gum tissue. Also use a size and shape that feels comfortable
and allows you to reach the surfaces of every tooth. Replace your
brush if the bristles become worn, splayed or frayed. A hard,
brittle brush can injure your gums. Because children often chew
on their brushes, they can become worn out more quickly.
is the proper way to brush my teeth?
Thorough brushing twice a
day, and cleaning between the teeth daily with floss or other
interdental cleaners, remove plaque. Keep these tips in mind when
brushing your teeth. Use a soft-bristled toothbrush. Place the
brush at a 45-degree angle to the teeth and use a gentle tooth-wide,
back-and-forth motion. Remember to clean the inside teeth surfaces
where plaque deposits are heavy, and clean the back teeth and
tongue. Replace your brush when the bristles become frayed or
worn — about every three to four months.
I damage my teeth if I brush improperly?
Yes. Even though teeth are
protected by a hard layer of enamel, they can become worn out
from improper toothbrushing. Toothbrush abrasion can occur on
the crown of the teeth as well as in the softer cementum that
covers the tooth roots, which can be exposed by receding gums.
These exposed surfaces can become more prone to decay. When you
brush, be sure to use gentle, short, tooth-wide strokes.
do I clean between teeth?
Floss and other interdental
cleaners remove plaque from between the teeth and under the gumline,
areas where the toothbrush can't reach. If you haven't been in
the habit, it's never too late to start. When flossing, keep in
mind these tips. Gently ease the floss between the teeth and gumline,
never snap it. Form a "c" against the sides of both
teeth and gently rub the floss up and down the tooth, moving it
from under the gumline to the top of the tooth. Establish a regular
pattern of flossing and remember to floss the backside of the
last teeth. If you use interdental cleaners, ask your dentist
how to use them properly, to avoid injuring your gums.
are oral irrigating devices?
Oral irrigating devices use
a stream of water to remove food particles from around the teeth.
They are meant to be used as an aid and not to replace regular
brushing or cleaning between the teeth with floss or interdental
cleaners. Oral irrigators are helpful for people who have braces
or fixed partial dentures.
I install a water filter, will it remove fluoride from the water?
Depending upon the
filtration system that you use at home, journal articles have
reported that reverse osmosis and distillation filtration units
do remove varying amounts of fluoride from the water. Activated
carbon units were shown to remove only trace amounts. Several
tests of water filters, however, have shown conflicting answers.
Consult with your family dentist about your family's fluoride
