5 smart dental products your toothy pegs will adore
Let me guess… You’d rather spend time browsing the make-up aisle of your supermarket than rummaging through the dental section, right? Thought so. Which is why I’ve cut through the clutter and pulled together five of the best super-clever dental inventions – leaving you more time to peruse the make-up section. Enjoy!
SMART DENTAL PRODUCT #1: Colgate WISP
The thought of brushing my teeth on the go not only delights me but bewilders me, too. How is it possible? Well, this mini disposable toothbrush makes it anything but impossible with its built-in breath freshening beads and bristles that gently remove food and plaque. There’s no need for rinsing with these gems either – simply dispose of it once you’re done. Added bonus: there’s a soft pick on the other end if you, like Joel Madden, love a good toothpick.
SMART DENTAL PRODUCT #2: Philips Sonicare AirFloss ($169.95 | 1300 363 391)
Hands up who flosses twice a day? Erm, me neither. This wonder means there’s no more need for manual string flossing as it uses microburst technology to blast away 99 per cent of plaque and other build-up between your teeth. Simply hold the nozzle head to the spaces in between your teeth, press the button and boom! A shot of water blasts through the gap and takes all the nasties with it. Cordless and rechargeable, this gadget actually makes flossing fun.
SMART DENTAL PRODUCT #3: Macleans Milk Teeth Toothpaste
Little ones and their teeth need a wee bit more nurturing in comparison to big, strong adult chompers, so this brilliant toothpaste has been created with lower levels of fluoride more suitable to kids’ needs. It’ll help protect their first set of teeth from decay, while the ultra-fun packaging will get them excited about brushing their teeth. Oh, and it’s sugar-free too, which is a must.
SMART DENTAL PRODUCT #4: Manicare Toothbrush Covers
I hate thinking about the amount of germs that land on our toothbrushes when they’re kept in an open bathroom environment (toilet splashes anyone? YUCK!), so these wonderful covers are brilliant bacteria-protectors. Better yet, if you’re not using a rechargeable toothbrush, the suction pad attached to the cover allows you to mount your manual brush on the bathroom wall for easy access.
SMART DENTAL PRODUCT #5: Oral-B Cross Action Vitalizer
Gum health is seriously vital to overall good mouth health. This super-smart toothbrush features ultra-soft gum stimulators, which massage the gums while brushing. Oh, and the spiffy crisscross bristles ensure your toothy pegs are free of nasty plaque, too.
Have you used any of these dental products on your teeth? How much attention do you pay to looking after your chompers?
