Shop Dental and Oral Hygiene Products & Tools on Amazon.com
Dental hygiene products include a variety of items for preventive oral care such as toothbrushes, toothpastes, interdental brushes, prophy angles and cups, and giveaway bags. Regular oral hygiene prevents dental problems such as cavities, gingivitis, and gum diseases. Cleaning teeth with a toothbrush removes plaque and the bacteria-created acid that demineralizes teeth and causes cavities, and may also cause inflammation of the gums, called gingivitis. Flossing removes plaque where a toothbrush cannot reach and is an important preceding step to brushing. Interdental brushes are available in a variety of sizes and are similar to floss in their removal of plaque between teeth. Mouthwash or rinses of a fluoridated solution may improve oral hygiene by removing tooth decaying materials. The personal dental hygiene products that are commonly handed out to patients after teeth cleaning appointments may be used in large volumes and are available in case quantities, as well as individually.
