While the dental aisle in your supermarket or pharmacy isn’t typically where you’d think about spending money to pamper yourself, taking care of your oral health is just as important and can be just as luxurious as any other part of your day. Many of us strive to just get the least expensive products they have on the shelves, relegating ourselves to the same minty toothpaste, the same tired toothbrushes, and spools of dental floss to be wrapped around our fingers. The next time you head to restock your dental supplies, take a moment to see the other options that exist to pamper your mouth.
Like A Spa For Your Mouth
Let’s face it, our mouths go through a pretty brutal regime every day. They’re in constant motion to keep us talking, our teeth and tongues working overtime to enunciate every word, they’re aiding us in chewing our food, and also participate in helping us breathe, and that’s just for those who don’t use their mouths for unintended purposes. When you consider how hard our mouths work, doesn’t it just make sense to spend some time catering to them? Consider the following items when you head into the dental aisle.
• Electric Toothbrushes – While you could go for the old standby that is the manually operated toothbrush, research has shown that electric toothbrushes actually provide a more thorough clean and leave your mouth feeling fresher and happy. There are multiple varieties of these, including some that include a sonic element to go along with the buzzing of an electric brush.
• Whitening Agents – Coffee, tea, food, alcohol and even smoking can all stain your teeth, leaving them unattractive and yellowed. Thankfully you can pick up whitening agents in the dental aisle that will restore their fresh sparkling whiteness.
• Flossing Tools – We’ve all struggled to reach the back of our mouths using traditional flossing methods, but there’s a better way. In the dental aisle, you can find devices that will make flossing easier, and make it particularly simple to reach your back teeth. They come in both reloadable and disposable varieties, so there’s no excuse not to upgrade!
• Luxury Toothpaste – When you think of toothpaste flavors does your mind immediately go to “Mint or Cinnamon”? There are hundreds of possible flavors out there, with certain companies providing blends like Pina Colada, Mango, and hundreds of other flavors that are more than just a simple ‘toothpaste’. You can also select from those that come with hydrogen peroxide and other whitening agents as well.
As you can see from this short list, there are plenty of ways to pamper your mouth and make the brushing and oral care experience more than just your daily minty grind.
