Keep teeth white & breath fresh for oral health care month
April is oral health care month and we’ve been brushing and gargling with these products to take care of our teeth, gums and maintain fresh breath throughout the day.
Oral-B ProfessionalCare SmartSeries 5000 with SmartGuide ($184.99) combines cleaning and gum care for one of the most technologically advanced toothbrushes on the market.
Scope Dual-Blast mouthwash ($4.03, 750 mL; $5.69, 1250 mL, available at mass retail, drug and grocery stores across Canada) eliminates 98 percent of bad breath bacteria and is available in Fresh Mint Blast and Ice Mint Blast flavours.
Crest 3D White Whitestrips 2 Hour Express delivers noticeably whiter teeth after one two-hour treatment and lasts up to three months ($59.99, available at mass retail, drug and grocery stores across Canada).
For a natural alternative, turn to Tom’s of Maine products ($6.49 to $7.99), like the Tom’s of Maine Simply white toothpaste or Tom’s of Maine Cleansing Mouthwash. Vegans can reach for Lush’s Dirty Toothy Tabs ($3.95), where in lieu of paste the solid tabs just need to be crunched in your mouth and brushed with a wet toothbrush for three minutes.
