Products We Use
There's quite the range of dental products on the market and at times it can be confusing which ones you should choose. Here are some suggestions for choosing dental care products that will work for most patients.
Oral B electric toothbrush
This toothbrush is safe and effective for the majority of patients. We see excellent results with it and we offer it at a very reasonable price, which is much lower than retail. With the built in timer, and brushing action of the brush, we see results that get our patients teeth their cleanest.
For patients with sensitive teeth or a high prevalence for caries, we recommend this prescription strength toothpaste. It has five times the active ingredient of most over the counter toothpastes. Try it for post whitening treatments!
BreathRx fresh breath system
Over 60 million Americans suffer from bad breath. If you feel that you are one of them, try this system. Causes from bad breath include waste materials created by bacteria in the mouth, between your teeth, and on your tongue. When these bacteria feed, they release gaseous waste products that smell bad called Volatile Sulfur Compounds. This creates that rotten egg smell. BreathRx kills the bacteria that are the cause so the bad breath never starts. Ask for the toothpaste and mouthwash.
Biotene oral balance dry mouth system
If you are a patient that suffers from dry mouth for any reason, an option for you is to try Biotene. It contains natural salivary enzymes that boost and replenish your oral defense system. Biotene contains no sodium lauryl sulfate, a detergent found in other toothpastes that could be associated with promoting mouth sores or ulcers. Try the toothpaste or mouthwash, which are alcohol-free, gentle, and moisturizing. Also you can chew the sugar-free gum to stimulate saliva flow and protect between brushing. There is also a moisturizing gel saliva substitute that many patients prefer to help get them through sleepless, dry-mouth nights. Let one of us know if you think you suffer from dry mouth throughout the day.
CloSYS Antiseptic Oral Rinse
This contains a powerful, patented ingredient that kills 99% of germs in your mouth. CloSYS is alcohol free, freshens your breath, and soothes. We find it especially works great for cancer patients with mouth and tissue sores.
A product by Oral B, we find that this floss is the easiest to use for most of our patients. Slides easily into tight spaces, and is very strong and tear resistant. If regular flossing is difficult for you, ask one of us about other options that may be easier for you.
