When it comes to keeping your smile healthy, the foundational components are brushing twice a day, flossing daily, and rinsing with antiseptic mouthwash. However, not all oral hygiene products offer the same level of quality, and choosing the right products can boost your oral health.

While few dental products are outright dangerous, strategic marketing and packaging can disguise the fact that several dental products offer nothing more than cosmetic value. To choose products that truly benefit your smile, look for the ADA Seal of Acceptance. Introduced in 1931, it was created to help consumers identify which oral hygiene products have been safely tested and are of high quality.

A product can only receive the ADA Seal of Acceptance if its active ingredients have been tested for safety and efficacy and met the rigorous guidelines of the American Dental Association. If you see the Seal of Acceptance printed on a label, it means that product is safe and can fulfill its claims for your oral health.

To learn more about which products bear the ADA Seal of Acceptance, or to receive a recommendation on effective oral hygiene products in Whitaker, Pennsylvania, call Complete Dental Care at 412-567-0927 today and speak with a member of our team.
