Oral Care Products

The dentist at Brady Dental of Amarillo believes if your mouth is not healthy, it will impact several aspects of your overall health. Staying on top of your oral hygiene is important to the health of your gums, teeth, as well as other major parts of your body. When you neglect the health of your mouth, it can lead to diabetes, breast cancer, and heart disease, and impact healthy neurological functions. The professionals at Brady Dental of Amarillo are here to help.

When you allow bacteria to linger on your teeth and gums, they can move to other areas in your body through your bloodstream. Regular dental visits to Brady Dental of Amarillo, along with flossing, and brushing are how you reduce or eliminate diseases from developing. Maintaining a healthy mouth, however, takes certain products.

What are Oral Care Products

Oral care products are those used in caring for your mouth and teeth. There are several products on the market based on their clinical evidence that help in caring for the health of your mouth, which include mouthwash, tooth whitening products, as well as denture care materials. Most of these products are available at Brady Dental of Amarillo. Most brands of these products have all gone through safety evaluations before going to market and have been approved. The seal of the ADA (American Dental Association) is placed only on those products having been approved through evaluations.

Ag, NPs are common in mouthwashes, toothpaste, and toothbrushes to enhance antimicrobial properties. These oral care products are designed to fight against cariogenic and periodontal pathogens. Ask the dentist with Brady Dental of Amarillo which products are best for you.

Oral care products can be separated into various categories depending on their composition, purpose, and use. These are descriptions of a few common oral care products:


The toothbrush is the most used oral hygiene aid. Brushing your teeth is a widespread healthcare practice to remove plaque from your gums, tongue, and teeth. A toothbrush can be either electric or manual.


Toothpaste is sold as either a gel or paste and used on a toothbrush to maintain the health of your teeth. The ingredients in a toothpaste depend on their purpose but typically all include abrasives, detergents, and fluoride.


Mouthwash will complement your teeth brushing routine, but it does not replace it. There are several types of mouthwash, including plaque-inhibiting, antiseptic, and preventive. An antiseptic mouthwash will include chlorhexidine, a plaque-inhibiting wash will include a variety of ingredients from antimicrobials and other agents to prevent bacteria from sticking to a tooth's surface.

Finding the Right Oral Care Products

Oral care products will help you cleanse your oral cavity, maintain good oral hygiene and freshen your breath. The dental industry continues to expand day by day, so when it comes to taking care of your teeth, you will find a variety of dental-health products on the market. Choosing the right product can be challenging with all the choices provided. You will find products to help with bad breath, whiten your teeth, and those help with sensitive teeth, and more at Brady Dental of Amarillo. 

The ADA (American Dental Association) has guidelines for oral care products that will help you in choosing the right products. Because it is important that you find the best dental health product, you need to check the label of products for the seal of approval being achieved by the ADA or ask the professional dental assistant at Brady Dental of Amarillo.

What to Look For in Oral Care Products

If your teeth are sensitive, you will want to find toothpaste and mouthwash that includes fluoride, which can combat cavities and strengthen your teeth. You will also want a product that includes potassium nitrate which is an oral care chemical found in many whitening products. This ingredient will also balance sensitivity.

If you suffer from dry mouth, you will want to avoid peroxide and alcohol, but if your teeth are discolored, a mouthwash with peroxide and hydrogen peroxide will help improve discoloration, as well as a whitening toothpaste. Most whitening kinds of toothpaste include an abrasive, such as silica that can dissolve stains and polish your teeth.

Experts have said that whitening kinds of toothpaste you use at home will help you with surface stains on your teeth from wine, coffee, or other beverages or foods, however, a professional dental whitening treatment is still better at improving and removing stains from your teeth.

Different personalized reasons for choosing a toothpaste include learning which formulation of oral care fits your requirements. The right choice will play a critical role in improving the oral issues you are experiencing, and most brands will also help protect you against dental diseases. The experts at Brady Dental of Amarillo can help with all your oral care decisions.


Oral problems are typically preventable, and the way to address them is the personalized approach to choosing your oral care products. By choosing the product best aimed at your oral issues, you are one step closer to improving your oral hygiene status.
