    A number of dental instruments should be used daily to clean teeth and gums and maintain basic hygiene.

    Dental Instruments

    Toothbrush

    A toothbrush removes food and plaque from the teeth and gums.

    Toothpaste

    Toothpaste is available in gels, powders or pastes that help remove plaque from the teeth and gums. Toothpaste contains agents that can whiten teeth, strengthen gums and abolish bad breath.

    Dental Instruments

    Floss

    Floss is made of thin strands of nylon or plastic. Floss removes food trapped between teeth, as well as the small film of bacteria that covers teeth. The American Dental Association recommends everyday usage of floss.

    Mouthwash

    Mouthwash contains water, alcohol and cleansing agents as the primary ingredients. It helps reduce plaque, mask and control bad odor, whiten teeth, and minimize gingivitis. Your dentist may advise you to use mouthwash daily depending on your dental needs.
