We agree with the American Dental Association that you should brush your teeth twice a day and floss daily. The use of an antiseptic mouthwash will help to wash away lingering food residue and control the amount of bacteria in your mouth. Please keep in mind that not all oral hygiene products are equal, and using the right products makes a big difference in your smile.

Skillful marketing and attractive displays can often distract from the reality that many dental products are only of cosmetic value. We encourage you to seek out products endorsed by the ADA, which was founded to assist consumers in choosing the best products for their dental care. In 1931, the ADA introduced their Seal of Acceptance to help you and your family identify oral hygiene products of high quality.

Manufacturers can only earn the ADA Seal of Acceptance on their hygiene products by submitting the products to the ADA so that the program can test the safety and efficacy of the active ingredients. Products that meet the rigorous guidelines can then have the Seal of Acceptance printed on the label, and you can feel confident in its ability to help you maintain your oral health.

If you are unsure which products have the ADA Seal of Acceptance or need help choosing effective oral hygiene products in Exton, Pennsylvania, call 610-363-6181 to speak with a member of our team at Eric Goldberg, DDS or schedule an appointment with our dentist, Dr. Eric Goldberg.
