Types of Dental Hygiene Aids

Here are some of the most common aids that we recommend:

Dental Flosses

Dental floss is like a superhero for your teeth, fighting off food particles and plaque that can cause decay and gum disease. It’s an essential part of any oral hygiene routine because it helps remove debris from between teeth that a toothbrush can’t reach. Using dental floss twice a day after brushing can make all the difference in maintaining a healthy and sparkling smile.

Interdental Cleaners

An interdental brush is a powerful tool for cleaning between teeth and removing debris from hard-to-reach areas. They are gentle on the gums and come in various sizes and shapes to fit your unique mouth shape and tooth spacing. These brushes are highly effective in removing debris from between teeth, reducing the risk of cavities and gum disease.

Mouth Rinses

Mouth rinses can be helpful in preventing bad breath and reducing plaque and cavities. We recommend therapeutic rinses that are regulated by the FDA and contain active ingredients to provide maximum benefits. Use mouth rinses after brushing for optimal results.

Oral Irrigators

Oral irrigators like Water Jets and Waterpiks can help remove debris from below the gum line. They are effective in reducing the risk of gum disease but should not be used as a replacement for brushing and flossing. Professional cleanings at least twice a year are still necessary to remove deeper debris.

Rubber Tip Stimulators

Rubber tip stimulators are a great tool for removing plaque from around the gum line and stimulating blood flow to the gums. Use the rubber tip stimulator gently along the gum line at least once a day. Remember to replace the tip as soon as it appears worn and store it in a cool, dry place.

Tongue Cleaners

Tongue cleaners are specially designed to remove bacteria, fungi, and food debris from the tongue surface. They are an important part of preventing bad breath and systemic diseases related to tongue bacteria. Use a tongue cleaner before brushing to prevent the ingestion of harmful bacteria.


Using the right toothbrush is critical to maintaining oral health. Electric toothbrushes are more effective than manual brushes because they help dislodge plaque and food particles. We recommend using a soft-bristled ADA-approved toothbrush to avoid gum tissue damage. Remember to replace your toothbrush every three months.
