Series Summary

Many people today want a whiter, brighter smile. Some can achieve it with proper oral hygiene, such as regular brushing, flossing and using mouthwash. Some people need a little extra help to get their yellowing teeth to return to the land of sparkling white, especially smokers and coffee drinkers. There are a number of products that will help turn teeth a few shades whiter, including bleaching agents and toothpastes that contain whiteners. For some, these do the trick; for others, over the counter solutions are often hit and miss, with temporary results. 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 licensed dental assistant provides information about brushing teeth, flossing teeth and caring for sensitive teeth. Additional advice on treating canker sores, tooth aches and pain from braces is given as well. Keep the teeth and mouth clean with these dental health tips!
