The dental floss that you used as a dental hygiene product growing up still exists, but there are many other variants today. First, you can use flat dental floss. Dental floss used to come in one shape and size, but now it comes in different shapes and sizes. Flat dental floss is perfect if your teeth are very tight together. It still offers a nice, thick strip to clean with, but the thinner side allows it to fit in very tight spaces. Second, you can use the easy disposable floss sticks.
These sticks have a small piece of floss strung across like a slingshot, only tighter. That way you can get to every tooth without having the floss wrap itself tightly around your fingers and without getting your fingers all wet with your own saliva. Third, you can even get floss in various flavors. Some people are very picky about flavors and cannot stand the taste of unflavored floss. If you are one of these people, you can still use this dental hygiene product as it now comes in many different flavors!
One dental hygiene product that is relatively new but very, very popular is teeth whitening products that you can use at home. Instead of having to pay someone who went to dental hygiene school to whiten your teeth, you can now whiten your teeth from the comfort of your own home! These products are relatively cheap at around twenty dollars and pretty easy to use. There are many different brands and designs for the teeth whitening. Some have strips that you put directly on your teeth and leave on for a specific amount of time. Others have dissolving strips.
Another whitens by painting your teeth with the whitening serum at night. Still another product has a whitening tray much like the ones used at the dentist’s office. Finally, there is a product that you simply roll onto your teeth like lip gloss. All of these products whiten your teeth at least a little. This is, by far, the best selling novelty dental hygiene product out there today!
