Are you using the right kind of toothbrush and a toothpaste that will actually deliver on its claims? Is mouthwash really necessary or is the manufacturer just trying to make you think so? Your dentist and hygienist can give you the answers to these questions and so much more.
If you want to keep your teeth stain free but you don’t want to give up the foods and drinks that are causing those stains you’re going to have to be more diligent about brushing after indulging. The chemical content of some whitening toothpaste can actually remove the surface stains that are caused by coffee, tea or tobacco use. Deeper stains, however, may require a dentist’s evaluation.
Whether or not to use a mouthwash is pretty much a personal choice. Although an antibacterial formula has been known to deter infection some people just enjoy the fresh sensation that it leaves in the mouth, something close to how they feel after the experience of having professional teeth cleaning.
Should you throw away your manual toothbrush for a “new and improved” electric model? Again, this is a matter of personal preference but some dental professionals have seen that an electronic brush can do a better job of getting to those harder to reach areas.
