Any trip to the oral hygiene aisle of your local pharmacy or grocery store can be daunting. So many products with so many claims. At Hardwick Dental Group, we believe speaking to your dentist about what types of oral care products will be most efffective for you is the sure path to a successful purchase. The ADA Seal on a product is your assurance that it has met ADA criteria for safety and effectiveness. Look for the ADA Seal on fluoride toothpaste, toothbrushes, floss, interdental cleaners, oral irrigators, mouth rinses and other oral hygiene products. Replace your toothbrush every three or four months, or sooner if the bristles become frayed. A worn toothbrush is not as effective for cleaning your teeth as a new one. Children's toothbrushes often need replacing more frequently than adults because they can wear out sooner.
For even more information , we invite you to visit the ADA's website.
