When it comes to products that help and maintain our health, we are all in and ready to purchase and use the best thing to bring about the best result for our overall health. Sounds easy, I know, but with an overabundance of health products available these days, how are you supposed to know which ones really are the best for you? Especially when it comes to your oral health? Our teeth are so vitally important to our overall health. We only get one set of permanent teeth so we must do whatever we can to protect and maintain our teeth. From newborn babies to senior citizens, everyone needs the best oral care products they can find. Where would someone even begin to find out? Let’s look at some great products that start out with the littlest ones, yes before they even have teeth, all the way up to the oldest ones. (All products mentioned in this blog are highlighted with links for you to find them easily and quickly!)
Did you know that babies, even young infants that aren’t even cutting teeth yet, need good oral care? Milk residue can stay in baby’s mouth for hours which could cause potential problems down the line for their oral health. You should wipe baby’s mouth at least once a day with a clean, sterile cloth to remove any leftover residue that could cause bacteria to stick around. There is a great product from Brilliant Oral Care called Tooth Tissues which are disposable tissues that have xylitol in them, which is a safe substance, fluoride free, that helps prohibit bacteria from sticking to teeth, gums, tongue and cheeks. The Tooth Tissues can also be used with the Wipe-N-Brush.

Brilliant Oral Care has a great set of kids sonic toothbrushes that come in different characters and bring a fun approach to brushing teeth for kids. The best thing about Brilliant Kids Sonic brushes is they have a bright LED light that makes it easy for kids (and you) to see inside their mouths while brushing and the brushes will pulse when it’s time to move to another quadrant of the mouth to brush.
Toothpaste is essential for good oral care and something EVERYONE needs. Not just any toothpaste, but one that is safe for younger kids and works the best at cleaning and protecting your teeth, gums, tongue and mouth. There is a great product from Brilliant Oral Care that checks all these boxes and throws in some more added benefits.
