Your daily oral hygiene routine is very important for preventing cavities and periodontal health problems. To aid in this effort the American Dental Association recommends brushing your teeth twice each day and flossing at least once.

This will help to remove plaque buildup and residual food particles before they can harden into tartar or promote tooth decay.

While consistency in your oral hygiene habits is certainly important, the quality of the oral hygiene products you use can also be a factor.

To answer this important concern the ADA instituted their Seal of Acceptance program. This includes a battery of testing and research to make sure the product in question meets their high standards for safe and effective use in a daily oral hygiene routine.

If a product or device earns approval, the manufacturer can print the ADA’S logo on their packaging.

The ADA further helps consumers by posting an index of approved products on their website. This allows you to take your time researching the right oral hygiene products for you and your family from the comfort of your own home.

If you live in the Ventura, California, area and you have questions or concerns about the oral hygiene products you use, you should call 805-644-5516 to schedule a dental checkup and consultation with Dr. Sunil Ilapogu and the dental specialists at Sunny Smiles Dentistry.
