Oral Hygiene Aids
Oral hygiene aids are products you can use to clean your teeth and gums that aren’t your toothbrush or floss. They include:
- Interdental Cleaners: These are tiny brushes you can use to clean between your teeth, similar to floss.
- Mouth Rinses: These include standard mouthwashes that can be used to kill bacteria in your mouth or strengthen your teeth.
- Oral Irrigators: These products use a concentrated stream of water to clean plaque and food particles from your teeth and gums. They are excellent for cleaning hard to reach areas.
- Tongue Cleaners: The tongue, just like your teeth and gums, can accumulate bacteria and food particles. Often, whatever remains on your tongue is what dictates your breath. A tongue cleaner is a brush-like device that can clear away any potentially harmful debris and help freshen your breath at the same time.
