You know the rules. Brush twice a day, and floss once. Those are great habits, of course, but what if we told you there was even more you could do for your oral health? As dental science progresses, new products are being developed that will change the way you take care of your teeth. To help you out with your daily routine, we compiled a list of some new and fascinating dental technology that deals with bacteria, cleaning, and sterilization.

Steripods — While your toothbrush sits in the bathroom, it accumulates a lot of bacteria that you don’t want in your mouth. These clip-on caps fit over the bristles of your toothbrush, keeping the brush clean and using active vapors to eliminate the bacteria. With steripods, you can feel totally safe brushing your teeth.

VioLight Zapi — These egg-shaped devices deep clean your toothbrush by using ultraviolet rays to kill 99.99% of germs. It sounds like it’s from a science fiction book, but they are real and ready to buy.

Water Flossers — Used along with regular floss, these are great for washing off any extra debris stuck in between your teeth and on your gums.

CloSYS Oral Rinse — This alcohol and sugar-free mouthwash will fight bacteria and leave your mouth fresh all day.

Whitener Strips — You can use whitener strips to bleach your teeth white and make your smile glow.

If you think you’re ready for the next level of oral hygiene, make sure to consider these products. If you have any other questions, you can call our office, Frandsen Dental, in Orem, Utah, at 801-224-7900 to schedule a visit with our dentists, Drs. Rich, Prince, and Dansie.
