Christmas is fast approaching, so you need to get your letters to Santa sent quickly if you want to get the right presents on Christmas day! Here are 5 at home dental gadgets we recommend adding to your wish-list:
If you find regular flossing difficult then water flossing is the way to go! These handy devices make it much easier to reach in between your back teeth and to clean along the gumline. Gum disease causes bad breath and puts your teeth at risk, so get on top of your gum health with a water flosser. We recommend and stock the My360Pro Cordless water flosser.
Electric toothbrushes are proven to provide a better and more efficient clean than manual brushes. The rotating head makes it easy to polish every tooth surface, and most electric toothbrushes have a built-in timer to let you know when your 2 minutes of brushing are up! Good at-home dental care is the number 1 thing you can do to keep your teeth healthy for life. We recommend the OralB Vitality electric toothbrush – OralB offer a wide range of brush heads to suit all needs.
If you prefer a manual toothbrush over an electric one, give a microfibre brush a go. These brushes are super soft, making them better for your enamel and gums. The Curaprox 5460 Ultra Soft microfibre toothbrush is one of the softest brushes on the market. Each brush has 5460 individual bristles for a gentle and efficient clean. These brushes come in a wide variety of colour combinations and also come with their own cap to make travel easier!
Our tongue is often neglected when it comes to our at-home dental care! Bacteria grows on all surfaces of the mouth, and its bacteria that causes bad breath, so don’t forget to clean your tongue as well as your teeth and gums! While scrubbing your tongue with a toothbrush can help, a tongue scraper is the best tool for the job. TePe’s Good Tongue Cleaner is made of compostable bio-based plastic and is produced by 100% green energy.
Traditionally toothpaste is usually mint flavoured, but if you want to change things up or if you’re not a fan of the taste try Curaprox’s BeYou toothpastes. These toothpastes include a touch of menthol for fresh breath and enzymatic whitening agents for a brighter smile. The BeYou toothpastes come in six flavours, including watermelon, peach and apricot, and gin tonic and persimmon. These toothpastes are available upon request at our clinic.
