Using ADA-Approved Products

Posted .

Every year, families and individuals deal with cavities and gum disease problems that could have been prevented by routine dental checkups and a consistent oral hygiene routine. Brushing your teeth twice each day and remembering to floss at least once every 24 hours is essential for removing bacterial deposits from your mouth. At the same time, the quality of the oral products you use can also affect the effectiveness of your oral hygiene routine.

The American Dental Association created its Seal of Acceptance program in 1931. It calls for oral product manufacturers to voluntarily submit a product for testing and research to see if it meets the ADA’s high standards for safe and effective use in a daily oral hygiene routine. Upon approval, the manufacturer can print the ADA’S logo on their packaging. The ADA also provides a comprehensive index of approved oral products and devices on their website. This allows you to take your time researching the right oral hygiene products for your family. If you have an active oral health concern, you should consider seeking treatment and diagnosis from our dentist, Dr. Lucas Rudelich.

If you live in the Taylorsville, Utah, area and you have questions or concerns about the oral hygiene products you use, you can call 801-685-3429 to speak to a staff member at Southwest Dental LLC.
