Innovative dental products that could improve your teeth cleaning routine

 

Whether you consider yourself a stickler for oral health or simply want to make the experience as painless as possible, there have been many advances in the industry that could make your standard toothbrush and floss a bit outdated. As technology has improved in all areas of the bathroom, so has dental technology, which could lessen the amount of time it takes to fulfill your oral health obligations and get you out the door sooner. If you’re the kind of person who’s always pressed for time and needs a way to shake up your dental regimen, the following innovative products could pay dividends in the new year.

Dental floss holders
The old method of tying both ends of dental floss to the ends of your index fingers may work for some, but it could be difficult when trying to reach in between the back molars on the top and bottom of your mouth. Thankfully, one dental innovation that could make this process a lot easier is a dental floss holder. This will allow you to thread your floss through both ends of the holder and give you better control as you weave in between the gaps between your teeth to remove any lingering food particles and cut down on the amount of bacteria that is allowed to form.

Floss threaders
If you’ve had orthodontic work in the past and still have a permanent retainer along the bottom row of your teeth, this can make it nearly impossible to floss effectively in this area. Worse yet, these bars can lead to excessive buildup of plaque and tartar without daily flossing, so finding a solution is imperative to your long-term dental health. Floss threaders are designed to loop in between the gaps of your teeth and underneath these metal bars to clear out any traces of plaque buildup that may be forming and keep this area just as clean as the rest of your mouth.

Mechanical toothbrushes
Conventional brushing is certainly effective at removing traces of food, plaque and other forms of buildup from your teeth, but there have been many advances in toothbrush technology that you may want to consider. A mechanical toothbrush could be a wonderful upgrade to your dental regimen and holds many unique benefits over standard brushes. According to DiscoveryHealth.com, mechanical toothbrushes can clean hard-to-reach spots like the backs of molars and along the gum line, as well as preventing you from brushing too hard and wearing down the enamel of your teeth. You’ll also replace your toothbrush far less frequently, which can save you money in the long run and reduce your carbon footprint.

Dental tongue cleaner
The tongue is an often overlooked area during a brushing regimen, but effectively cleaning this spot can prevent the lingering effects of bad breath and cut down on bacterial buildup in the mouth. Instead of subjecting your toothbrush to this area, consider picking up a dental tongue cleaner. This can effectively remove food particles, dead skin cells and bacteria that could be contributing to bad breath and other side effects. Be sure to rinse out your mouth completely after brushing, use the tongue cleaner and then finish with mouthwash to end your dental regimen at each point of the day.

The simple tube of toothpaste and brush are still wholly effective at keeping a person’s dental health in check, but there are a wealth of options now on the market that can shave time off your oral care regimen and make it more beneficial than ever.
