What type of toothbrush and toothpaste should I be using?

We recommend any toothpaste that has fluoride and the ADA seal of approval. There are many available that not only contain fluoride, but that also contain ingredients to help with sensitivity, tartar control, etc. When it comes to choosing a toothbrush, it is important to consider what you’re getting. In our office, we recommend a high quality electric, sonic toothbrush. Recent studies show that these toothbrushes are most able to not only remove bacteria and food particles from the teeth, but also to disrupt the biofilm, or sticky substance that the bacteria secrete. These toothbrushes represent a significant investment, but will yield the best health possible not only for the teeth but also for the gums. Please ask about a demonstration.
