Many people today want a whiter, brighter smile. Some can achieve it with proper oral hygiene, such as regular brushing, flossing and using mouthwash.

There are a number of products that will help turn teeth a few shades whiter, including bleaching agents and toothpastes that contain whiteners.

There are a number of factors that go into dental care, from choosing the right dentist to taking care of the teeth and gums at home. In this free video series, a general dentist provides information about gum disease, filling cavities and root canal procedures. Additional advice is provided on plaque detection, teeth whitening procedures and toothache cures. Keep the teeth and mouth clean and the gums healthy with these dental care tips.
