Mouth Care:

We’ve all probably heard that we need better mouth care or to floss more at some point in our lives But beyond the obvious, there are many factors that contribute to a bright and healthy smile. At Alki Family Dental , we offer carefully curated brands of mouth care that support the best care recommendations we provide to our patients. We consider our patients a part of our family, and we look to offer them the best because we feel 100% that is what they deserve!

Ever wonder about some of the products that we offer?
A rundown on brushes, toothpaste, and more from Alki Family Dental

Let’s Talk Toothbrush

All toothbrushes are not created equal. Our dentists recommend the Nimbus toothbrush. The Nimbus Microfine packs long extra fine bristles to reach into those critical areas with effectiveness and a soft touch. Nimbus toothbrushes use soft bristle technology with a handle that is comfortable and natural to hold.

Long tapered and short, flexible bristles clean the hard to reach places without being unnecessarily abrasive

A favorite with high marks from dental professionals all over the country, we are confident the Nimbus toothbrush is the best brush our patients will ever use.

CTx3 Rinse - Mouth WashOur Favorite Mouthwash.

We recommend CTx high pH mouthwash for our patients. Most major brands including Listerine and Scope (to name a few) are lower pH mouthwashes.

Any mouthwash with a pH lower than 7 are not as safe and effective as those with a pH over 7

Low pH mouthwash can weaken surfaces in the mouth and contribute to an increase in bacteria activity. This can often result in bad-breath and gingivitis, as well as the possibility of more serious issues such as cavities and poor gum health.

Another key factor in rating the safety and effectiveness of any dental care product is RDA, which measures abrasiveness. Some more abrasive products can ultimately strip teeth and bring more damage than relief. We sought out a mouthwash for our patients with the proper pH and cleansing power.

Based on research testing for both optimal pH and RDA, CTx mouthwash is proven to be the best on the market. That is why we are proud to recommend it to our patients!

What about electric toothbrushes?

Electric toothbrushes can seem both convenient and powerful tools for maintaining proper dental health. But at Alki Family Dental we don’t recommend electric brushes.

And here is why…

Electric brushes can often do more harm than help

We believe the concept of “brushing” should focus more on massaging and stimulating the gums as opposed to rubbing the teeth themselves. Prolonged use of an electric toothbrush can often lead to gum recession and tooth sensitivity.

Alki Family Dental has the best products For the best patients.

CocoflossWe are proud of the products that we offer, all the way to our floss. We offer super cleansing, soft, textured dental floss to finish off that perfect smile.

Cocofloss is infused with microcrystalline wax, coconut oil, fruit oils, and fragrances. Based on research as well as our own experience, this is the best floss we have found to be on the market today. We are proud to provide samples of Cocofloss to our patients!

More tips to keep your smile gleaming.

Proper mouth-care is about using the right products to protect and clean your mouth. When paired with a proper dental hygiene routine, you can enjoy a healthy smile for years to come. At Alki Family Dental our focus remains on prolonging the health of your teeth and gums without the undue wear of harmful products. Brushing your teeth 2-3 times daily, using a high (higher than 7) pH mouthwash, as well as flossing daily are all ways to help keep your mouth happy and clean.

Alki Family Dental also thinks it is more important for our patients to understand the “why” behind proper mouth-care

Understanding how a cavity forms in our teeth, or how bacteria grows in the mouth deepens our patients understanding on the importance of proper care. We integrate this involved approach to help our patients understand how proper choices can aid in overall health through a balanced and informed routine.
