Preventing oral hygiene problems like cavities and gum disease calls for the consistent application of an effective daily oral hygiene routine. The primary focus of this routine endeavor focuses on brushing your teeth each morning, and night, while also making sure to floss at least once per day.

The quality of your oral hygiene products you use when brushing and flossing your teeth will also factor into the effectiveness of your daily oral hygiene practice. A product that has been created to address cosmetic dental interests often lacks the potency to clear bacterial deposits from your mouth.  

Fortunately, the American Dental Association created their Seal of Acceptance program in 1931 to help consumers identify the highest quality oral hygiene products for them and their families.

A manufacturer can voluntarily submit a new oral hygiene product to the American Dental Association for research and testing. The active ingredients will then be thoroughly examined for safety and effectiveness as part of an oral hygiene routine. If it meets the rigorous guidelines, it will receive certification for the Seal of Acceptance to be printed on the label.

Dr. Troy L. Sargent and his staff note that finding the right oral care product helps keep you and your loved ones encouraged to brush and floss.
