The Best Brands of Toothpaste, Floss, and Mouthwash

May 2, 2014

BrushingThere are many great oral care products out there, but some are more effective than others. In today’s post, we want to offer some advice on choosing what’s right for you.


There are toothpastes for seemingly everything–cavity protection, gum disease prevention, sensitivity, whitening, and more. In every case, there are going to be some products that are better than others, but if you want one that can do it all, consider Crest Pro-Health. This particular toothpaste whitens, prevents cavities and gingivitis, fights bad breath, and helps with sensitivity.


The right kind of floss depends on your particular preferences, and on your own teeth. In places where contact between teeth is normal or loose, woven floss is very effective. In places where contact is tighter, though, you’ll want waxed floss that can easily glide through narrow passages.


As with the many toothpastes and flosses available, the best mouthwash for you depends somewhat on your needs. Crest Pro-Health again provides patients with great all-around care, while Scope and Listerine are both known for fighting gingivitis and giving you fresh breath.
