Do you feel it’s time for a dental cleaning? If so, you are probably right. What better way to dive into the sugary, fun-filled, holiday season than having your teeth professionally cleaned to keep your oral health in check? That is why to help you prepare for the holiday season, our team at Orem Pediatric Dentistry in Orem, Utah, recommends you stocking your home with these four items to help you in your war against tooth decay. These items include:

-Toothbrush: It’s usually best to choose a soft-bristled toothbrush. Many people always wonder if a manual toothbrush is better than an electric one, and the truth is it’s all a matter of personal preference. The important thing to remember is to always have a toothbrush for your teeth.

-Toothpaste: There are dozens of different kinds of toothpaste depending on your personal needs. Either way, a cavity-fighting toothpaste is always best when it comes to keeping cavities out of your smile.

-Floss: Flossing is often a missed step in oral hygiene, yet vital to oral health. Floss keeps food particles and sticky sugary substances from latching onto your gums deep within the gum line and between your teeth.

-Mouthwash: This clears all remaining bacteria from your teeth, gums, and tongue. They also have powerful abilities to help fight off cavities and polish off your smile leaving a beautiful and fresh smile behind.
