Just like how you keep a running list of favorite recipes on your Pinterest board, we keep a list of various oral health products that we love and recommend to our patients. Below you’ll find our recommendations for toothbrushes, mouthwashes and floss brands.
Note: We love electric toothbrushes because they have an in-handle timer to keep you brushing the full two minutes. Sometimes when we’re in a hurry to get out the door it’s easy to cut our brushing and/or flossing time short. Electric toothbrushes hold us accountable for our oral health.
