At AZ Dental, we want to help you maintain the healthiest smile possible. To do that, we provide our patients with the highest quality of treatments while in our office. However, your at-home dental care plays just as an important role as your in-office care. In addition to brushing and flossing your teeth, our dentists can recommend addition oral hygiene aids that can improve your oral health. If you are interested in learning about your options for oral hygiene aids in San Jose, California, we invite you to contact us at 408-295-1100 and schedule your appointment with Drs. Aulakh, Patel, and Hashemi.
In addition to brushing and flossing your teeth, there are several other ways that you can help keep your smile healthy and beautiful. When you visit our practice, our dentists will evaluate your oral health and help you know of any oral hygiene aids that could benefit your unique situation. Some of the oral hygiene aids that our dentists may recommend include:
- Tongue cleaners: gently using these as part of your daily brushing routine can help get rid of bacteria that causes bad breathe. Tongue cleaners are sometimes attached to the back of toothbrush heads, or you can purchase them separately.
- Interdental cleaners: one kind of interdental cleaner is dental floss; however, some people find it difficult to floss or to reach all areas with floss. When this happens, you can use other interdental cleaners to make sure you keep cleaning between your teeth.
- Mouth rinses: there are many types of mouth rinses, but any of them can help remove additional plaque and harmful substances between the teeth and in the mouth. Our dentists can help you know which type of mouth rinse is right for you.
- Oral irrigators: these small tools use water to gentle and thoroughly clean between your teeth and around the gum line. They are often called water picks or waterjets. These can help keep your smile protected against gum disease.
If you have any questions about these or other oral hygiene aids, we welcome you to call or visit our practice today. We are here to help you maintain a healthy smile for life!
