Oral care is much more than brushing and flossing
When it comes to oral care, many people focus solely on brushing and flossing. However, a comprehensive routine should include more than just these basics. While toothbrushes, toothpastes, and flosses are essential components, other products can enhance your routine's effectiveness. For instance, consider incorporating a pH balanced mouthspray infused with prebiotics into your routine. This powerful combination helps balance the oral microbiome and freshen breath. Additionally, using a tongue scraper can effectively eliminate bacteria and debris from your tongue, leaving you with fresh breath and improved hygiene.
Are the ingredients in your oral care products working against each other?
It's also important to ensure that the ingredients in your oral care products work together to achieve your oral health goals. You should think of your oral care products as a system that complements one another. For example, some toothpastes contain certain forms of calcium, which helps neutralize the acid in the mouth but may reduce the bioavailability of fluoride (for those who don't speak scientist, this means it can reduce fluoride's effectiveness). Therefore, choosing products that work well together is important to maximize the benefits of your oral care routine.
Is your routine working against your oral health goals?
Think about your morning routine. Many of us wake up, drink a cup of acidic coffee or juice and then brush the acid caused by this all over our mouth. After lunch, we swish alcohol-based, burning electric blue mouthwash in our mouths to kill off bad breath. In the evening, we might eat another acid-causing snack and brush that all over our mouth just in time to let it sit on our teeth for an 8-hour slumber. In a single day, we have eroded our enamel with acidic foods (and products) and indiscriminately killed the oral microbiome in our mouths — both good and bad microbes. We have created the perfect environment for tooth decay. But it doesn't have to be this way.
How do I maximize my mouthcare efforts?
3. Start and end your day with the right oral care products and the right oral care routine. Since your mouth can become acidic just about every time you eat/drink, it's best to create a protective barrier that will help keep acid from eroding your teeth. And yes, the order in which you use your products can also make a difference. SuperMouth recommends the following routine for morning and evening:
