But since October is National Dental Hygiene month, I took SoFresh Oral Care up on their offer to try their flossing toothbrush. After my last visit with the dental hygienist, I knew I needed all the help I could get. Good dental and gum care is not just for a good smile and fresh breath. Studies show there is a direct link between mouth bacteria and systemic diseases like cardiovascular disease (heart attack and stroke), diabetes complications, bacterial pneumonia and even osteoporosis.
Ok, enough of the background. So I tried the flossing toothbrush and the OraSweeet tongue cleaner and I liked it a lot. I gave one to my mom and, without prompting, that senior citizen said she "really liked the new toothbrush" and it felt different to her than her old one. My teenage son also thought it was cool. It gives a flossing sensation and the tongue scraper (followed by whitening mouth wash for me) made my mouth feel sparkling clean.
These oral care products can only be purchased online but they are reasonably priced so check it out and buy a bunch for the family. You can focus on good oral hygiene all month.
