It’s one thing to purchase a bunch of dental hygiene products that will get the job done. It’s another to carefully select products that you feel certain will provide you with the benefits you need. Unfortunately, advertising is often extremely alluring but we all know that it is commonly filled with over-the-top promises and flashy advantages (that may not come to pass). Rather than taking a guess and hoping for the best, we encourage you to consider a few ways to figure out whether you’re making a purchase that will offer the care you need.
#1: Ask Us
Not sure if you should be purchasing a soft-bristle brush or a medium-bristle brush (it should always soft, by the way)? Wondering which electric toothbrush options are worth your investment and which are not? Curious about the best type of toothpaste for your particular smile needs? We just happen to be experts in this particular field of care, so please – ask away! We are always happy to guide you toward effective dental hygiene purchases.
#2: Look For That ADA Seal
Have you narrowed down most of the details but you are standing in the dental hygiene aisle staring at multiple options? A good rule of thumb when you’re deciding between just a couple products is to choose the one that boasts the ADA Seal of Acceptance. It means that it’s already been tested, so you won’t need to do any trial and error on your own.
#3: Ask Your Friends
It’s true. A good way to come to a consensus about products is to find out what the people who share your general likes and dislikes think. Ask your parent, sibling, or best friend about which products he or she has tried, which they like, and why. It’s much easier to take advice from someone you know and trust than to scour the Internet for product reviews that may be quite mixed.
